If you ask me, backpacks are here to stay, with almost every luxury brand under the sun having their very own variations, from Burberry’s adorable nylon backpacks to the ones from Prada that let you carry everything (yes, even the kitchen sink if you so wish to). Then there is this, Louis Vuitton’s take new on the ever-popular Palm Springs that now comes in quilted leather as well.

First made available in coated canvas, the new Malletage leather one is everything a true luxury bag should be, with quilted lambskin on the outside in the pattern of Louis Vuitton’s house icons, finished with gold-tone hardware that’s classy and elegant. Then there’s the padded shoulder handles, the trimmed cowhide and the additional loop at the bottom, which is actually for you to loop your scarf through when you’re out and about.

Measuring 37 cm in height by 24 cm, it’s admittedly a gorgeous bag, one that will take you from day to night, one that you can use on weekdays and weekends, and one that you’ll be using for most any occasion. Heck, even I’m interested, I just need to find out how much it costs now. BRB.

THE LOUIS VUITTON PALM SPRINGS BACKPACK PM

Travel

Satisfying a thriving interest in monogram products while courting higher-end consumers with more expensive and exclusive leather options is a difficult balancing act, and it’s not one that Louis Vuitton has always pulled off perfectly. The brand has made strides in its leather game under the creative direction of Nicolas Ghesquiere, though, and now that monograms feel trendy again, LV has debuted at least one bag that I’m betting will capitalize on the increased interest: the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack PM.

Taking the ubiquitous LV monogram and making it feel fresh without changing it significantly is a tall order, but it’s something this design accomplishes. Stripping it of the beige vachetta leather trim that most of LV’s monograms sport helps a lot; the black leather feels luxe and sporty simultaneously, which is a combination that’s huge in seasonal fashion right now and makes the monogram feel current by association. The casual, simple backpack shape is also important, and both it and the trim remove the print from its traditional, somewhat stuffy original context. It’s a monogram bag that can appeal to consumers who weren’t old enough to buy designer bags last time monograms were cool.

The bag is part of the brand’s current Cruise 2016 collection, and we’ve already spotted it on the arms of Chiara Ferragni and Kylie Jenner, who are exactly the type young, high-profile women who can introduce Vuitton to a new group of potential customers. For my part, it’s the only Louis Vuitton bag I’ve felt drawn to in recent memory, as well as the only one I’ve thought might make sense with my own personal style. That’s not exactly a tiny shift for someone like me, who doesn’t gravitate toward logos at all.

The bag is also well-positioned in Louis Vuitton’s price structure for it to make maximum impact: at $1,650, it hits a full-on luxury price point without being as astronomically unobtainable as the brand’s leather options. The Palm Springs is a very smart addition to the brand’s lineup, and I’d love to make it an addition to my closet.

Something urban and funky for the designer junkie? Definitely.

What a way to take a breather with the Louis Vuitton Palm Springs Backpack, something different from the luxury house’s Cruise 2016 collection.

The bag combines a sporty shape with distinctive House detailing – two seemingly different elements bound together by such design. It has so calfskin trim with foam backing and a leather scarf loop that’s perfect for sporting. With two adjustable padded shoulder straps, backpacking never looked this good!

It has golden color metallic pieces to match, and outsize zipped front pocket and an inside flat pocket that’s good for those who’d want to keep it organized.

Measuring 11” x 12.2” x 3.9” inches (L x H x W), you can get your very own Palm Springs Backpack for $1,650 USD via Louis Vuitton online boutique.
