LOUIS VUITTON LV PONT 9 HANDBAG COLLECTION
The new LV Pont 9 shoulder bag is the brand’s latest embodiment of effortless Parisian chic.
June 1, 2020
Named after the Pont Neuf, the oldest existing bridge in Paris located opposite the Maison’s headquarters, the Louis Vuitton LV Pont 9 shoulder bag is a symbol of its ongoing commitment to exquisite craftsmanship. 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 near Louis Vuitton’s headquarters in Paris.
Brought to life in Summer Gold, Bleu Orage, Rose Dahlia, Crème, and Noir padded calfskin, the bag’s structured silhouette is softened by gently rounded edges, while a racer-esque tapered strip of leather runs down the foldover flap, adding a contemporary edge to the otherwise classic design.
The bag’s refined, rounded design is brought to life in smooth, lightly padded calfskin and finishes with the exclusive Louis Vuitton Circle, a 1930s archive logo reinterpreted by Nicolas Ghesquière, the House’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections, and used on both the bag’s flap – as a closure – and strap. The interior, in sleek and colourful leather, features a smart design with two compartments and two practical pockets. Contemporary, yet instantly classic, and superbly crafted, the LV Pont 9 shoulder bag is an enchanting addition to Louis Vuitton’s 150-year tradition of innovative leather goods.
Thoughtful attention to detail is revealed in hidden features like the monogram flower-inspired magnetic clasp, as well as a gusseted construction that makes the bag more spacious than it might seem.
