The winds of style have shifted towards larger and bolder accessories and of course the all-encompassing trend of big bags. From flipping through the fashion pages of glossy magazines to marveling at the picture-perfect feeds of social media influencers, big bags seem to be taking the spotlight everywhere!
When we look to the world of brands out there, one particularly shines through like the beacon of a lighthouse, guiding bag lovers to its doors –– Louis Vuitton. With the ability to deliver sophistication, a taste of true luxury and functionality, Louis Vuitton is a name that is revered in the world of iconic bags that have graced the closets of handbag aficionados around the globe.
So it comes as no surprise that when the big bags are taking over the world, we choose one from the House’s vast collection for this week’s ‘Bag of the Week’.
Few things instantly come to mind when we think of Louis Vuitton: monogram coated canvas with its lovely brown hues, the iconic ‘LV’ logo, and excellent quality. Combining these three comes a bag that created a ripple amongst bag lovers like never before. This was the result of the creation’s bold look, leveraging the wonder of logo-mania and the popularity of the unmistakable monogram.
One look is all it took for us to be in awe of this beauty. Louis Vuitton translated its signature monogram in a way that made the brand’s fans eager to get their hands on this bag. So much so, that it led to the bag being sold out in France! The bag hails from Louis Vuitton’s Monogram Giant capsule collection, which features the signature logo and flower motifs in a super-sized format to magnify the beauty of the iconic pattern. Fashioned from the new canvas, the Onthego bag is crafted in four countries: France, Spain, Italy, and the US and comes in two sizes: GM and MM.
At first glance, the bag presents itself as a structured tote with an open top. At a closer look, the thoughtful details, the precision, and classic LV finishing lend the bag an unparalleled aura that shines brighter than the big bags around.
The most obvious and enthralling detail of the bag is the contrast between the Monogram Giant canvas and the Reverse Monogram. With a muted palette ranging from deep brown to caramel, the ode to logo-mania is expressed in a classical way. The panels of the bag have the regular-sized Monogram that adds another level of complexity. The contrasting rivets on the sides taper the top of the bag and make sure the interior is secured.
The aesthetic of the bag makes it a must-have, but the sheer functionality of it makes it an absolute essential. It has two sets of handles, the iconic Toron top handles, and a pair of long shoulder straps. The Toron handles have also been treated with the same contrasting aesthetic that seems to dot the bag. The generous interior is touched with red canvas, a signature that we have come to associate with the iconic brand. Finished with a hook closure, slip pockets, a flat zip pocket, and gold-tone hardware, the Onthego tote is a bag that demands attention.
The Louis Vuitton Onthego tote acts as the perfect companion for those who carry the world in their bags. Hold it in the crook of your arm or drape it over your shoulders, this carry-all tote will make sure you are ready for anything your day throws at you.
