We’re lusting over this latest design from Louis Vuitton … the LV Pont 9 shoulder bag. Effortless Parisian chic, perfect for both everyday and special occasions, this new design takes its name from Paris’ Pont Neuf, the oldest and most celebrated bridge that sits opposite Louis Vuitton’s headquarters in Paris. It also marks the first release of the House’s new LV Pont 9 leather line. All rounded lines and lightly padded calfskin and not one but two exclusive Louis Vuitton Circle logos … one on the bag’s flap (as a closure) and one on the strap, the bag is available in a few gorgeously striking colours. So alongside the understated and elegant Noir and delicate Crème is a palette of more vibrant tones … think deep sunset-like Summer Gold; feminine and vibrant Rose Dahlia; and soft and dreamy Bleu Orage. Contemporary, classic, it’s the most swoon-worthy item we’ve seen this year, and is now in store in the Joburg (Sandton City, 011 784 9854) and Cape Town (Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre, 021 405 9700) LV boutiques.
