Louis Vuitton | Globe Shopper Cabas Handbag
Now featuring at Louis Vuitton, the new Globe Shopper Cabas. Louis Vuitton recently came out with this new shopper bag with a slightly updated modernized Louis Vuitton logo. Marc Jacobs decided to updated design, he artfully blends modernity with traditional. A combination of tradition and classic create this very stylish modern look but yet embracing a vintage feel. Louis Vuitton’s history dates this iconic logo print back to 1905 when they commonly used this symbol on the front of their trunks and bags.
Bold and very unmistakable features of these bags include two signature engraved buckles on each side. The buckles can change the whole shape of the bag, whether you need to expand or contract the bag’s capacity makes this a modern and practical piece. The material used is cotton and linen canvas with the interior decorated with the monogram mini signature lining. I know from personal experiences that this linen canvas material is easy to get dirty and hard to clean. These shopper bags are adorned with antique brass hardware to embrace that vintage feel.
I realize this bag isn’t for everyone. I’ve read a few reviews on this bag, which people express in their opinion that Marc Jacobs has gone a little mad with this new design. Somewhat of a cheap bold trick of getting ones attention with this print that just screams out “look I buy Louis Vuitton”. You will rarely see me ever say that a bag is totally hideous. I have an open view of fashion. For this bag, I fall somewhere in the middle. It’s one that I will defiantly consider purchasing as a beach bag come closer to the Spring season.
