Inspired by a model from Louis Vuitton's archives, the new Dauphine bag has been redesigned for the modern era.
Nicolas Ghesquière is known for his keen ability to explore and reinvent designs from Louis Vuitton's vast archives. The Women's Artistic Director's latest inspiration comes from the 1970's Dauphine bag, a compact model in classic Monogram canvas. With its new metallic LV closure, hexagonal chain strap, and adjustable leather strap that can be worn two ways, the new Dauphine bag makes the most of its heritage while adapting to modern lifestyles. Monogram lovers will appreciate the play on two versions of the iconic motif: the classic and the reverse. The new Dauphine bag revives a historical shape and elevates it to must-have status among Louis Vuitton's new leather goods icons.Leather goods Monogram

Louis Vuitton honors Karl Lagerfeld, a long-standing friend of the House.
Louis Vuitton pays tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, who was much more than a singular and prolific fashion icon, but also a long-standing friend of the House.
Lagerfeld’s iconoclastic approach to redefining fashion - particularly predicting and understanding the importance of ready-to-wear and knowing how to revitalize and reinvent brands - could be seen as the blueprint by which many fashion houses operate today. As both a preeminent designer, fashion trouble-shooter and contemporary Renaissance man, Lagerfeld’s contributions to the fashion and luxury world are innumerable.
Lagerfeld’s close relationship with Louis Vuitton brought about several collaborations, including a custom one-of-a-kind trunk to hold his collection of 20 iPods and sound equipment.
For Louis Vuitton’s 2014 project “THE ICON AND THE ICONOCLAST: Celebrating Monogram”, Lagerfeld was one of six creatives chosen to show the distinctly personal side of the Monogram; re-presenting something we think we all know in an extraordinary, individual, and idiosyncratic way. Given carte blanche to dictate and make whatever he saw fit in the iconic canvas, Lagerfeld designed a collection of boxing gear: a large trunk for variously sized punching bags, boxing gloves, carrying case, and even an instructive mat. Of his contribution, he said “It is fun! In fact, I had several ideas and Louis Vuitton wanted to do them all – why not? … It was really very childish, simple thinking!”
On news of Lagerfeld’s passing, Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke shared: “Karl adopted me when I was in need of a friend in Rome! We became partners in crime and wrote history on the Great Wall of China. Aim high, shoot for the stars. You will always be our guiding light.”Karl Lagerfeld Homage Tribute
