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.

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.

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.
