Louis Vuitton egg-shaped bag – a geometric sensation in the accessory world
Louis Vuitton Egg Bag was first introduced in the French fashion house’s Spring – Summer 2019 ready-to-wear collection. It is designed by Louis Vuitton former creative director Nicolas Ghesquière.
Though just a newcomer to Louis Vuitton’s rich collections of handbags, the Egg Bag has been lauded by many fashion critics and lovers alike as a “stir” for its peculiar, avant-garde egg-like exterior. Many people assume that French designer Nicolas Ghesquière took the inspiration from the Easter egg while creating this bag. Instead of the traditional Easter egg decoration patterns, Ghesquière put his own ingenious spin on the design, applying Louis Vuitton signature Monogram Canvas on one side of the bag, and trimming the other with black cowhide leather.
The bag has a gold-hued zip and a small key bell that is covered in light-colored cowhide leather. The cowhide leather is particularly prevalent in the Egg Bag design, considering that it is also the material for making the bag lining and two handles. Relatively simple as they appear, the Egg Bag handles have a special feature that gives them the name “Toron handles”. This unique feature can be perceived at the ends of the handles, which are split and rolled out like petals. Besides the Egg Bag, several other Louis Vuitton bags, such as the City Steamer MM, the Flanderin, and the Kensington, also have Toron handles.
The Egg Bag’s eccentric appearance may pose a challenge to the task of mixing it with any assembles. However, many people have pulled their tricks of rocking the Egg Bag with their choices of outfits. Here are a few examples!
The Egg Bag is small in size and easy to carry around. Like any other leather fashion items, the bag is vulnerable to strong physical forces and alien chemicals. Great care should thus be taken of the bag to keep its beauty last.
The Egg Bag is a unique, vintage-chic creation that combines Louis Vuitton time-honored traditions and Ghesquière’s lust for novelty. Having made the headlines upon its introduction late last year, the Egg Bag would surely become one of the fashion world’s most coveted.
