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.

I haven't seen many posts about this backpack so thought I'd do a little reveal on a bag I picked up from the New Bond Street LV store in London today! I was obsessed as soon as I saw the reverse monogram and was told there weren't many available, which made me want it even more.Originally wanted the mini but I already have an Alma BB, and felt like I needed a medium sized bag; I'm so glad I went with the PM. 

My only concern is that the zip seems quite touch, I can't remember having this problem on my Alma or the pouch that came with my Neverfull MM, could it just be the shape of the bag making it difficult to zip?

MARC NEWSON ROLLS OUT CAPSULE COLLECTION FOR LOUIS VUITTON

Travel

Australia's most lauded design export, Marc Newson, has again collaborated with Louis Vuitton on a range of rolling luggage that marries the designer's signature predilection for biomorphic curvilinear forms and bold colours with the 'art of travel' ethos that underpins the storied French house.

Dropping in stores from July 15 and online from September 30, Vuitton and Newson's rolling trunks were 18 months in the making and are a surefire sign that haute hand luggage has reached its zenith. Each piece boasts, per Vuitton, "a new type of self-reinforced polypropylene composite, essentially representing the structure of the trunk, moulded in a mesh matrix of several layers" - meaning the cases are both light and able to withstand the rigours of travel. Other innovations include "a transversal side hinge" that allows for a complete 180 degree opening; a three-digit TSA approved combination lock to secure your invaluable assets and a single zip - all in the name of reducing weight and streamlining your time in transit, and all of which are patent pending.

"I think it’s safe to say that we’re striving to break new ground in terms of developing a product which is one of the lightest on the market, and from a technical perspective is one of the most rigorously designed and engineered" says Newson.

Newson has previously worked with Vuitton on the creation of a leather and shearling backpack 'Celebrating Monogram'. 

Gotta catch 'em all, I guess.

The Newson x LV trunk will be available in the signature Monogram canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier check print, Graphite, Taiga leather and in natural cowhide leather that comes in seven colours of Epi leather

Newson's designs, 18 months in development, eventuated in an increased internal volume of 15%

"What compelled me to join forces with Louis Vuitton was the challenge to design a great piece of luggage, because like a lot of people, I travel a lot"


Marc Newson reinvents Louis Vuitton's trunks for the 21st century

Louis Vuitton is launching an innovative new range of rolling trunks for the 21st century traveller, designed by Wallpaper* Power Lister and internationally renowned industrial designer Marc Newson.

Its core is moulded as a slim and elastic, shock-proof mesh matrix of self-reinforced polypropylene composite. To achieve the greatest lightness possible, Vuitton’s celebrated Monogram canvas has been slimmed down 50 per cent without compromising its original characteristics.

Unlike most rolling trunks, the extendable cane, engineered in lightweight anodised aluminium, has been relocated to the outside, adding structure and strength and removing bulky bumps and ridges from the interior, allowing for more packing space. A new transversal side hinge is built into the structure of the trunk, and the three-digit combination zip-pull lock system – with a single zipper pull – is designed to reduce weight and avoid the usual stress points of double zip pulls.

The new trunk comes in three sizes: mini (50 x 35 x 20 cm), cabin (55 x 39 x 21 cm) and maxi (68 x 46 x 26 cm). All three sizes are available in the classic Monogram canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Taiga leather and a rainbow of seven colours of Epi leather.

Newson and Vuitton worked rigorously to achieve some impressive stats: 36 litre capacity for the cabin size – an increase in internal volume of 13 per cent compared to a similar sized trunk – and a weight of a mere 2.7kg for the mini version and just 3kg for the cabin size. Development took around 18 months, although frequent flier Newson says he's ‘probably spent 20 years designing these things in my head, long before I knew that I was going to be doing this for Louis Vuitton’.

‘I think it’s safe to say that we’re striving to break new ground in terms of developing a product which is one of the lightest in the market, and from a technical perspective is one of the most rigorously designed and engineered,' explains Newson. 'I’m obsessive about packing everything into a bag of a certain size, which is why it was so important for me to design a product that could tick all of those boxes and be the perfect piece of luggage for a person like me, [who] won’t travel with anything more than is absolutely necessary.'

To accompany the launch, the French maison will offer shoppers who purchase their cases a 48 hour after-sales repair service in 14 global cities, which will also be integrated into the Louis Vuitton travel app.

Louis Vuitton + Marc Newson Rolling Luggages Collection

In addition to its Monogram and Damier canvases, the bag will also be available in seven bright colors of Epi leather.

Long before French fashion house Louis Vuitton had started showing highly covetable ready-to-wear collections in settings like Oscar Niemeyer’s Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói in Rio, its founder began the brand in 1854, as a small shop specializing in “packing fashion.” Louis Vuitton soon created his first trunk, the Trianon, which owed its success to design breakthroughs at the time, including the use of canvas and glue for its casing, which would keep the clothing inside from smelling of leather. Now, after almost two centuries, the fashion house has pivoted again—in partnership with acclaimed industrial designer Marc Newson on a new line of rolling trunks for the 21st-century traveler.

To start: The carry-on luggage is light. We're talking under five pounds for the carry-on bag, and just under seven pounds for the larger, 37-liter cabin size. While the design is reminiscent of the iconic trunks (think: side hinges and leather corner coverings), the latest styles are the brand’s most aerodynamic yet. Canvas, glue, and leather are now upgraded with self-reinforced polypropylene composite worked into a multi-layered mesh matrix—meaning the elasticity lets the bag absorb shock as it moves.

The bag also has a lightweight aluminum exoskeleton of sorts, which fully opens up the interior packing space—this material also helps to drastically reduce the overall weight of the piece. (The trunk comes in two cabin sizes, and a check-in sized trunk is forthcoming.) But the true contemporary move for Louis Vuitton? The bag, which launches in late September in the brand’s Monogram and Damier canvases, will also be available in a range of seven bright colors of Epi leather—a primary-color rainbow of options.

“I’m obsessive about packing everything into a bag of a certain size, which is why it was so important for me to design a product that could tick all of those boxes and be the kind of perfect piece of luggage for a person like me, that travels and won’t travel with anything more than is absolutely necessary,” says Newson in Condé Nast Traveler's exclusive release of Louis Vuitton’s video on the line. “The brief that I had for the project was fairly open. Really, it was to redesign, primarily, carry-on luggage, but to design it in a way that was appropriate for, say, a contemporary traveler."

If you’re a fan of Louis Vuitton (who isn’t these days, especially with what Kim Jones has done for the mens collection in recent years) and design wunderkind Marc Newson, here’s a new collection from the French luxury house that will get you excited for sure.

In collaboration with Marc Newson, Louis Vuitton has launched a new collection ofRolling Luggages that aims to meet the needs of today’s 21st century traveller. Featuring 3 important innovations that every frequent flyer will appreciate, it a) is made up of an ultra-thin titanium layer bonded to the polypropylene composite shell that makes it super lightweight, b) comes with an external full-width extendable cane (handle) with a simple zip puller closing system and c) is the very first of all Louis Vuitton luggages today to have four wheels, In other words, it’s light, it’s easy to use and most importantly, it will be easier to manoeuver as well, which should cut time spent from the time you disembark the plane to getting into your car by at least a third.

Available in 2 sizes, a Mini50 and a Cabin55 (because God forbid you check in something as gorgeous and as precious as this), this would be the luggage you use for a short two-day trip (use the Mini 50) or go for the maximum allowed onto any airline (the Cabin 55).

Now for the best part. The Rolling Luggages will come in at least 6 different finishes, which means after you’ve decided on the size, you’ll have to choose from between the following: Monogram Canvas, Monogram Eclipse, Damier Graphite, Epi (a virtual rainbow of choices here), Taiga and something called VVN, which is basically Vuitton’s vachetta leather wrapped around the entire luggage and one that will patina beautifully over time.

Priced from SGD3650 all the way to SGD8100 depending on finish and size, here’s another bit of information that will please all of you in Singapore. Whilst the rest of South Asia will only get this new collection sometime in end-September, we can all buy it now at Louis Vuitton boutiques across the island, from Marina Bay Sands to Ngee Ann City and ION Orchard.

So what do I have my eye on? Right now it’s the Cabin55 in either Monogram Canvas orMonogram Eclipse, which are also the only ones (along with Damier Graphite) that can be personalised with your initials with LV’s Mon Monogram service. How not to #LVOE?
