The Louis Vuitton City Steamer Bag

Handbags

Louis Vuitton has served up some great bags as of late. Rapid recall of a few of our favorites: TheDora, The Garance, and The Petite Malle. PurseBop even speculates that the Louis Vuitton Capucinescould reach classic status.

Today, we excitedly introduce a new LV bag with some promising potential: The Louis Vuitton City Steamer

History and Specs

The Louis Vuitton City Steamer first appeared in the Cruise 2016 runway show and received lots of hype immediately after its debut. The City Steamer finally arrived in stores at the beginning of this month, and the buzz still hasn’t stopped. What’s all this talk about? The LV City Steamer just looks a little too familiar…some may say, very Birkin-esque. Before you can decide whether you’re yay or nay on the Birkin similarities, let’s take a closer look…

The City Steamer is a modernized version of LV’s original steamer luggage bag. The bag is very structured and roomy, which make it very functional for carrying travel essentials and other business documents. Adding to the travel element of City Steamer, the bag features an engraved padlock in the center and an embossed luggage tag. Other functional features include a double zip enclosure and a detachable shoulder strap. The City Steamer comes in 3 different sizes, PM, MM, and GM.

Creative director, Nicolas Ghesquiere seemed to carefully design the City Steamer with a clear purpose in mind. Overall, the City Steamer is very sleek, minimalistic, and appropriately functional. The exterior details that are present don’t detract from the bag’s silhouette. The handles have the same attachments as the Dora bag and the gold padlock dangles elegantly from the middle. With various sizes and leather options, the LV City Steamer can hold its own in daytime or evening occasions.

City Steamer vs. Birkin

From first glance, the City Steamer may scream “Birkin”especially if you focus on the gold padlock. However, as far as the silhouette itself, if the City Steamer does mimic the Birkin, it only does so innocuously. The bag’s rectangular shape is fairly common as seen by the structured bag trend this year. It’s hard to decide whether we should have a grievance with the gold padlock or not. Instead of asking “Does the City Steamer look too much like the Birkin?”, a better question to ask is: “Is the City Steamer special enough for us?”

Louis Vuitton Steamer Case

Travel

Louis Vuitton Steamer Case

Many of my friends seem to all be engaged and planning their weddings. I keep receiving ‘save the date’ cards and keep wondering what I will wear and what I will buy for their gift. Better yet, I ponder what I will want from them at my not-planned wedding. Call me sick, but I enjoy thinking about my own wedding gifts in my sometime-in-the-hopefully-near-future-wedding. A gift that would have me bowing down at the givers feet would be a Louis Vuitton Trunk. I am determined to own an LV trunk and by-golly if I do not get one as a wedding gift I will use part of the gift money to buy one! Style.com had a mini idea section for good wedding gifts, and my eye got stuck on the Louis Vuitton Steamer Case. This case was first invented in 1901 as a smaller piece of travel luggage to be kept inside of the coveted LV Trunk. Gasp to the most perfect inside addition to the LV Trunk. The price is $3,050. So anyone who will be invited to my wedding, keep this post in mind! As usual, shop Louis Vuitton exclusively at eLuxury and this piece is available at select Louis Vuitton boutiques, (866) VUITTON. Try the lovely folks at Louis Vuitton Bal Harbour, Florida.
