Micro bags are one of the most polarizing trends to home along in years, and I’ve got some unfortunate news for those who wish they’d go away (We read the comments! We hear your size frustrations!): Louis Vuitton has stepped into the ring with seven brand new versions of some of its favorite bags, shrink-rayed to tiny proportions.
Louis Vuitton is feeding into our obsession for the teeny tiny and launching the Nano Bag Collection for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2015 line this Friday, July 3rd in stores, at least here in the US!
The collection is called Louis Vuitton Nano, and it includes miniatures of popular classics like the Speedy, Noé and Alma, as well as newer styles like the W and Soft Lockit. Vuitton maintains that these bags retain the exact same structure and proportion, structure and stitching that their big sisters have, and except for the missing vachetta leather bottom on the Noé BB, they do all look extremely faithful to their inspiration.
The Noé is the smallest of the bags, at 5.1 inches wide and 5.9 inches tall, and it’s also at the collection’s lowest price point: $810. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the W and Soft Lockit are both 7.5 inches wide, which manages to barely accommodate an iPhone 6 Plus. Both of those bags are rendered in Veau Cachemire leather, which puts them at $1,720, the range’s highest price tag.
Louis Vuitton has always had knack for winning us over with adorable designs. The nano collection’s smaller sized bags offer even more possibilities for toting and accessorizing LV classics. Each nano sized bag features a long leather strap for versatile wear. Each style will come in similar colors and materials to their bigger companions.
