Traveling in Style with Louis Vuitton

Traveling in Style with Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton handbags are my weakness. Champagne, Bourdeaux wines, Tiffany jewelry: all of this I can resist.  But those Louis Vuitton bags have a special power over me.  There’s something in their elegance and the brand that makes it for me a travel must-have. These days, I don’t go anywhere without my Louis Vuitton.

I can remember when I first fell in love. It was a summer in Paris in 2005. I was with my husband. We were on the Champs Elysees and I saw the beautiful Louis Vuitton store. My eyes lit up like a little girl in a candy store. I walked in as if in a daze and at first, just wandered around admiring the five stories of elegant Louis Vuittons. A sales lady eventually asked if she could help and offered champagne to my husband and me. While he sat, I walked around admiring and trying all these beautiful beautiful bags. It was the height of romance and of elegance…shopping leisurely in Paris with a sales lady who seemed thrilled to help me look at and discuss all those beautiful bags.  After what must have seemed like hours to my husband, in fact it probably was hours, I decided to get a full set: a shoulder bag, wallet, and cosmetic bag all in the Monogram style. It was a very emotional and I’ve been hot and heavy with Louis Vuitton ever since.

Travel Bags and Accessories

 

HANDBAG

Damier Bloomsbury is perfect as an everyday bag. It’s both functional and feminine, it can be either carried on the shoulder or across the body. Bloomsbury could carry your basic neccessities as it features one inside flat pocket, a phone pocket and an outside pocket with magnetic closure. With its simple and elegant design, Damier Bloomsbury is the ultimate bag for the woman on the go when traveling.

COMPUTER BAG

The Icare Damier Ebene is ideal for business or travel. Its ample interior easily accommodates documents and a laptop, while brown leather trimmings make it smart looking .  One of my favorite things was the wide strap at the  back of the bag to slide onto the Pegase suitcase.

LUGGAGE 

Stars overwhelmingly favor monogram and damier canvas Keepalls and Pegase rolling suitcases as their go-to designer carry-ons.  It’s impressive how much Louis Vuitton’s travel gear seems to cross all kinds of lines – gender, race, age, career type, fame level – to saturate the celebrity market.

Meeting regulation size, it’s the perfect fit for the overhead compartment.

  1. Mine is the largest Neverfull. My husband will not let me own LV luggage because he’s worried it’s ripe for theft. So I settle for handbags. I bought a beautiful Twinset clutch/crossbody in Paris in June and it was $500 cheaper than in the US because of the exchange rate/VAT refund. Total deal!

      If I had to check it in I would worry about that too. My husband gave me the Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene iCare Laptop Bag for my birthday last year, and I absolutely love it. I remember a few years back when I could walk into the LV store in Paris, and buy two bags for the price of one here. Now when you go you have to wait in long lines, and the store is so crowded.

  2. I really love my Neverfull. It’s perfect for the plane, to keep your items inside.
    I will never forget the first time I visited Louis Vuitton store. Thanks to you I finished crying of happiness.

    Kisses!

      The Neverfull is a great bag to use for traveling, you can fit a lot of things inside. I’m glad I was able to help make you happy. 🙂

  3. Very chic. I like the Keepall since it’s got that duffel bag kind of look. :]

      Hi Carmen, I really like the Keepall too! It’s a great weekend bag and big enough to fit most of my things.

  4. Louis Vuitton luggage really is a symbol of travelling in style, and I love your Iris sunglasses too

      I really like the Pegase Damier Ebene luggage, but I worry about the wear and tear going through the airport.

  5. Louis Vuitton luggage is amazing but I wonder if it’s worth spending so much on a suitcase when they get so badly damaged at the airport.

    • Carmen

      I completely agree that’s why I haven’t purchased the luggage. Although, the small bag can fit in the overhead.
