Louis Vuitton Capucines Bag

Categories:Louis Vuitton

The name itself is a ‘legend’. Capucines is taken from the street where Louis Vuitton started their first store back in 1854. The name of the street? Rue Des Capucines in Paris. There will be no disappointment when you fully understand how cleverly the design is created; the bag has actually two-faces and can be worn in two ways; the front flap can be hidden inside and it will show the LV initials. The initials are another creation that I love and admire, because it looks like it has been born out from the leather. The second face is when the flap is shown in the exterior, revealing its monogram flower, but also taking away a piece of the minimalistic style I love.

The marriage of two precious leathers lies at the heart of the Louis Vuitton Capucines bag. The rounded, strong texture is made from bull-calf “Taurillon” leather while the supple, silky feel of calfskin that echoes the texture in the body of the bag. A contrasting, all-leather duo pairs hide with hide in the purest tradition of fine leathergoods.

In the first place, the bag comes in two sizes, MM and GM, with a 1.5 inch difference in width between them (14.2 for the MM, 15.7 for the GM) and a price difference of $450 ($5,150 vs. $5,600). That kind of pricing puts the brand firmly in Hermes territory, a comparison that Vuitton is likely hoping to draw with its new leather offerings and their attendant prices. Currently, the GM only comes in two colors (black and red), while the MM comes in a range of six shades, including one that's strikingly similar to Hermes' signature orange. The bags' hardware varies between silver and gold, depending on the leather color.

And then, the Louis Vuitton release this bag in the BB size, the shorty fashionista can add another classic to their wardrobe. It’s finished with shiny silver palladium accents, the mini size also comes with a removable long shoulder strap for the casual shoulder or cross-body wear.

Measuring 7.9 x 10.6 x 3.5 inches (W x H x D), crafted from full-grain Taurillon leather. The interior is enriched with 1 flat pocket, 1 zipped pocket and 2 large compartments open it with a snap hook closure.

The design is timeless, with changing colours from season to season; its suppleness gives a relaxed feel complemented by a host of curves and rounded lines. The strong shape holds with the natural beauty of leather complemented by fine jewellery features. Capucines plays with contrasts and opposites, demonstrating the Maison’s many expert talents.

At first this bag does not reveal its lineage. It has mastered the art of the understatement, even the famous Louis Vuitton Monogram is not on show. Only the true connoisseur will be able to discern a homage to age-old trunks in the engraved rivets, they alone will recognise the Maison’s fine jewellery features in the chapes, the outline of the quatrefoil clover petal in the cut-out of the flap, and perceive a reference to the early days of the Maison in the bag’s name, when it was established in rue Neuve-des-Capucines, not far from Place Vendôme, between the Louvre, the emperor’s residence, and the Haussmannian Opéra district.

Nothing in in the Capucines elegant restraint hints at its complexity. Over 250 individual handcrafted operations and thousands of steps go into creating the Capucines bag. Invisible, but ever-present know-how that is expressed in every detail and which gives it the sophistication and refinement that stand the test of time.

The grain of the hide must be even, the fibres intact, the thickness ranges from 2 to 2.4 mm, and the texture is and smooth and velvety to the touch. The leather specialist examines, weighs up and caresses the leathers: a patient selection that rejects wrinkles, a uneven grain and any marks. This is a sensual and painstaking exercise balancing the search for perfection with ultimate respect for natural materials.

The edging of the Capucines defines the leather, protects its, and highlights the colour. They are beautifully curved with a perfectly smooth silky feel. Performed by hand, finishing of the edging requires four successive layers; each one is air-dried before being heated to 46 degrees, and not one degree more, making them strong with the perfect finish.

Tiny stitches that have been carefully hand-sewn by the leather craftsman are barely visible, almost undetectable. They attach the interior snap hook and closure tab. Discreet and virtually imperceptible, they snake between edges and rivets. A sensual yet technical detail that only reveals its intricacy to the eye of the aesthete.

This is the queen of detail stitching, crafted in saddle stitch; it dictates the uniquely distinctive structure of the Capucines bag, blending suppleness and strength. Created freehand in a single operation, it tacks between reinforcements and gussets without ever deviating from its path. It is the culmination of millimetre-precise control and an exercise in craftsmanship that relies entirely on skillful intelligence.

Never seen in this interpretation Louis Vuitton’s initials have been sheathed in bull-calf leather and inserted into claws set into the very grain of the leather. This is an unprecedented step for the Maison and has been carefully developed by its leading leather craftsmen. It is a pure demonstration of the confidence of years of craftsmanship that encourages new expressions to enrich each new Louis Vuitton creation.

Will the Louis Vuitton Capucines be LV’s Next Classic?

Categories:Louis Vuitton

The powerhouse Louis Vuitton is undeniably an “it bag” maker. With a simple game of LV word association, the Monogram speedy probably instantly pops into your head. Louis Vuitton has turned over classic after classic, and their handbag game hasn’t showed any sign of slowing down. Recently many of LV’s signature bags were commemorated in mini form in the Louis Vuitton Nano collection. Louis Vuitton has also released more traditional styled bags with modern flair such as the Dora tote and Garance bag. Even with great new releases, it’s hard to say if Louis Vuitton has had any icon status worthy bags of late. However, PurseBop thinks she may have found a potential candidate: The Louis Vuitton Capucines. Let’s take a closer look before you decide…

History and Specs

The Louis Vuitton Capucines was first introduced in the Fall/Winter 2013 collection. The bag takes its name from the Rue des Capucines in Paris where Louis Vuitton opened his first store in 1854. The heritage of the name adds even more to its classic appeal. The Capucines is fairly structured and boxy like many vintage bag shapes. It has a semi-rigid top handle attached by jewel like rings. Its sides angle out like a slight trapezoid giving it a modern touch. The Capcuines combines its sleek aesthetic with functionality as it features two inside compartments (1 flat, 1 zippered) and an inside flap for added security. The flap has a small monogram flower and can be worn outside of the bag to change the look. The LV Capucines comes in 3 sizes BB, MM, and GM. It is easily carried by hand, in the crook of the elbow or even over the shoulder. The BB size features a long strap for crossbody wear.

The Capucines embodies elegance with a design that can’t help but be admired. The hardware LV initials in the middle bring the whole bag together with a little sparkle.
