Louis Vuitton La Haute Maroquinerie
Special thanks to Julia. Ever feel sometimes that there is an LV boutique in every mall and you practically see someone carrying one just around the corner? Well for those of you that lust for the über exclusive, Louis Vuitton has introduced La Haute Maroquinerie which literally means, high leather goods. The Salon de Haute Maroquinerie (only a few stores will have this) is a section of the boutique where customers can special order bags, choosing from eight different types of leathers or skins, 26 colors and five shapes. The bags are the New Lockit, Triangle (East-West Lockit), Noe and two new shapes, the Neo Steamer (Trapeze) and Milaris (Berlingot). First introduced for the re-opening of the Milan boutique this past September, they are LV's way to bring back the mystique of an exclusive piece from their atelier. Judging from the high price tag (€5,000 to €15,000), they are mostly likely hand stitched by artisans and only using the finest of the world' leathers. I personally LVoe the Trapeze. What do y'all think? Neo-Steamer (Trapeze) Milaris (Berlingot)
