Ten Loves: Louis Vuitton LV Pont 9

The key to any good bag is that it’s reliable. You can splash out on a fancy new addition from any brand, but if it can’t accompany on your day-to-day, through thick and thin, what’s the point of owning it? Louis Vuitton are masters when it comes to creating bags you can count on for a lifetime; brilliant examples of sheer craftsmanship that can be passed between generations whilst still remaining as chic as when first purchased. The brand has a brilliant new leather addition ready to join an already illustrious family of bags. The LV Pont 9 gets its name from Paris’ Point Neuf bridge, the oldest and most celebrated in the city, which happens to be just opposite of Louis Vuitton’s headquarters. In a lightly padded calfskin, the bag is smooth and rounded at the corners. It comes in a sublime range of hues (our favourite has to be the Rose Dahlia) and stamped with the archive Louis Vuitton logo from the 1930s, reinterpreted by Nicolas Ghesquière. The LV Pont 9 is sheer Parisian elegance. As smart as it is sleek, this is an instant Louis Vuitton classic, and it’s ready to make its way into your wardrobe.
