LOUIS VUITTON BLOOMSBURY BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Bloomsbury-Bag

Louis Vuitton is really stepping in on the gas with the Bloomsbury Bag, a quintessential designer piece that’s lightweight and easy to carry. And because it is accentuated with smooth lines and refined folds, we couldn’t help but be amazed by its craftsmanship. Truly, the luxury house who started it all certainly knows a thing or two (or more) about simplifying the whole designer experience. Nothing beats classic styles!

This Damier canvas baby may look non-intimidating, but inside it holds more than meets the eye – it has an interior flat pocket, a phone pocket, and an outside pocket with magnetic closure! If you’re more of the organized diva, then you would surely appreciate the Bloomsbury in all of its functional glory! It even has an adjustable strap which allows you to carry this piece beautifully on your shoulders. To top it all off, it has a brown-finish engraved Louis Vuitton Inventeur plate, a testament to its quality.

Priced at $1,270 USD or €945 EUR, you can get your very own Bloomsbury bag via Louis Vuitton online boutique.
