Some time ago I had a pleasure to work on a project for one magazine together with Louis Vuitton. And the occasion was a release of quite exclusive collection of city bags called Haute Maroquinerie. It is collection of five models: three handbags designs inspired by the icons /Lockit 1958, Triangle 1934, Noe 1932/ and two new shapes / Trapeze, Berlingot/. Each of the models can be only “reached” as a private order and every lady /or some gentlemen I guess too/ can personalize it to its maximum – to make it one and only for her/his own, by choosing desired model, the leather, the colour /outside and inside – up to 26 colours together/ and the finish /zippers, locks, labels etc/. Of course I do not need to mention that all is in its highest quality as the Louis Vuittionalways provides. The private order can be placed only by appointment – visiting the maison`s VIP rooms – in Japan only at its two stores – at Louis Vuitton Namiki Dori /Ginza/ as well as at its store in Osaka. For the project I was invited to visit one of the VIP rooms, at Ginza store, and have some snapshots of it which I would like to share – to present an exclusive quick look inside of Haute Maroquinerie. For the launch of the collection four very stylish and successful ladies were invited to order one of the designs: model Ai Tominaga, stylist Isabel Dupre, very stylish Italian blogger Chiara Ferragni and renowned Japanese architectYuko Nagayama.
LEATHERS to choose: Supple Leathers /Veau Soie, Veau Bougie, Veau Ecore/, Structured Leathers /Chevre Frisson, Vochette Nomade, Veau Box/, Exotic Leathers /Crocodilians/; Leather Linings /Goat Lining, Lambskin Lining/.
