Introducing the Capucines
Named after the Parisian street where Louis Vuitton first opened a store in 1854, the Capucines bag bridges tradition and modernity, savoir-faire and chic classicism.
While its perfect geometry may not alter from one season to the next, the Capucines draws its ability to surprise and amaze from a wide selection of exotic leathers.

An iconic bag whose sleek lines speak a universal language.
Available in a hand-picked selection of the finest exotic skins, each Capucines bag is crafted using rare materials of the highest quality, chosen for their complex, unique nature, varying sizes, and singularity.
Lizard leather lends itself perfectly to evening versions of the Capucines, its delicate texture deftly handled by Louis Vuitton's expert artisans.
The Capucines combines refined details such as a semi-rigid handle secured by jewel-like rings, – a nod to the Maison’s historic trunks – while the rounded flap recalls the petals of the iconic Monogram flower.
The added challenge for Louis Vuitton's artisans is to work these exotic leathers in a range of shades and finishes while preserving the Capucines’ trademark softness and suppleness.
Louis Vuitton now extends its tradition of offering personalization services to the exotic leather Capucines. Choose from a palette of matte and shiny leathers, metal hardware, and lining materials for an even more exclusive creation.
The Capucines’ elegant design belies its technical complexity. Requiring more than 250 entirely hand- executed steps, the Capucines is a perfect example of Louis Vuitton’s artisanal savoir-faire.
