Louis Vuitton Monogram Empreinte Sorbonne Backpack

Travel

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

For  ladies who love everything about the Palm Springs Backpack but have been waiting for something more substantial, this post is dedicated to you. From Louis Vuitton comes the newish Monogram Empreinte Sorbonne Backpack that has been released in 3 easy-to-match colours, namely Cerise, Noir and Rose Poudre. And while it’s not exactly 100% similar in terms of style to the PS,  it’s close enough, especially when you’re distracted by the stamped buttery soft leather.

Its features are simple enough, its 27 cm by 25 cm body sporting a top handle, slings at the back (you know, to wear it like a backpack) and finished with a front zip pocket. Only available in this single size at the moment (the Sorbonne is slightly shorter than the Palm Springs PM Backpack but what it lacks in height, it makes up for in length and width), it is perfect for those who believe small is good and smaller is even better.

Great for a day out with sufficient interior pockets – zippered ones for your important essentials, and smartphone pockets for you to keep it all in safely and being truly handsfree while you’re out and about, the Sorbonne retails for SGD3450 (full leather, that’s why) and is currently available at all 3 LV boutiques in Singapore.

Accessories

Louis-Vuitton-Comete-Wallet

Louis Vuitton is casually taking things in stride but when it comes to creating wallets, it looks like this French label is taking the competition too seriously. Take a look at this Louis Vuitton Comete Wallet and you’ll know what we’re talking about. Plus, you’ll also definitely fall in love with its understated elegance and femininity.

Sporting subtle grained Veau Cachemire leather matched with shiny silver brass metallic pieces, this LV Comete Wallet is all about simplicity without sacrificing sophistication. In fact, its main feature would be the metal V accessory, which was inspired by Nicolas Ghesquire’s first collection for Louis Vuitton. The metal V accessory is placed in the zip pull for an added touch of beauty and embellishment. The Louis Vuitton logo on the other hand is subtly embossed in the upper middle for an instantaneous brand recollection.

We also love the fact that the zipped closure features an all-around zipper for easy and effortless access and reveals a well-organized interior. Now let’s take a look inside, shall we? This Comete Wallet features 12 credit card slots, 1 zipped coin pocket, 3 large gusseted compartments for banknotes, and 2 inside flat pockets. Woah! That’s a lot of compartments in one wallet but we’re not complaining! In fact, we are a fan of it.

It is priced $1420 USD, €960 euro, £895 GBP, $1640 CAD, $11700 HKD, $1710 AUD, ¥158760 JPY, ¥10800 CNY via Louis Vuitton boutiques.
