Louis Vuitton has given the elegant Capucines MM bag a makeover with two exquisite leathers for interiors and exteriors. That’s not all, bag is now available in more colors – mostly pastel for the changing season. Exteriors of the reimagined Capucines are made from bull-calf “Taurillon” leather while the interiors are lined with supply and silky calfskin leather that complement the exteriors.
The handcrafted Capucines made with over 250 individual steps features design elements borrowed from Louis Vuitton’s well-documented trunk making history – like the engraved rivets in its brass metal hardware. The practical city bag features semi-rigid Toron handles secured by jewel-like rings in silver or gold. The handles gives the option to carry it on shoulder, elbow or by hand. Bag is fashioned such a way, its hap can be worn either to reveal the outline of a Monogram flower or inside to show the LV initials. Spacious interiors feature 2 large compartments, 1 zipped center pocket and one flat pocket. The Capucines MM is available in a pallet of 14 colors.
Back in October last year Louis Vuitton informed its loyal customers about taking the premium pricing route to increase its bottom line by using premium leathers. They have kept that promise by introducing new collections in high-quality leathers with no canvas versions. For the Capucines MM’s, leather on leather new version arrives with a new price point at $5,350, up from $4,730. The bag is not sold online in the US, you have to call Louis Vuitton to check availability and place orders.
