Some brands just radiate French Art de Vivre with their intrinsic elegance, sense of detail and refinement. But far from being quaint and conservative, they knew how to evolve to turn into protectors of the French craftsmanship savoir-faire.
What is good is that they also keep on eye on the future to always provide you with the best avant-garde and modern items… Just like they have always done, often from the 19th century up until now. Amongst these amaznig French brands, I here summon Louis Vuitton, absolute genius of the French fashion industry since 1854.
Today, Louis Vuitton offers fashion shows that are on the edge of something definitely futuristic as much as absolutely classic. The brand’s guidelines never changed: provide women and men with high quality fashion and accessories that last and make you want to throw your entire wardrobe away just to make it a hundred percent Vuitton.
Modernity as always been a cornerstone at the Louis Vuitton’s designers office and keep on being in their very DNA today, especially with the arrival of designers Nicolas Ghesquière and Virgil Abloh at the head of creation in respectively women and men creation.
Nicolas Ghesquière has a fun and pop culture take on the Vuitton DNA when Abloh has revolutionised the Louis Vuitton men’s department with very urban and raw, radical pieces. Both brought to the runway a new kind of it-bag that very much suits the modern women needs: the backpack.
How convenient and cute are these little bags that you can carry all day without carring much about it, that are out of the ordinary and useful? Well, let me show you my top Louis Vuitton backpacks, so you can go on and pick the one that will stick to you for the rest of your life!

Louis Vuitton’s Clapton backpack: the most versatile handbag ever
The problem with backpacks is that they take you back to your high school years rather than to the idea of a chic and charismatic womanhood that knows her fashion classics.
Louis Vuitton really got this and managed – with all his backpacks, but above all with the Clapton – to have you forget everything about teenage canvas backpack and have you look fabulous and sophisticated with luxury high-quality handbags.
What is very nice about the Clapton is that its design has something as youthful as it is serious and crafted for every women to look fabulously elegant.
The Clapton handbag is made of the signature checkerboard leather canvas, revisited with a chocolate and mocha coloured leather that has something warm and youthful to add to the overall design. Versatile, you can chose to only use the elbow handle or the shoulder straps to wear it any way you want according to the occasion and your outfit.
The grained cowhide-leather trim and cream or magnolia top are the the luxury and feminine touch that the design needed to be very charming and elegant. What really make the luxury finish to the Clapton handbag is the tuck lock closure in gold metal that is really like a jewellery piece at the very core of the design.
The Clapton backpack by Louis Vuitton will satisfy all your chic lady’s need as much as your modern woman’s responsibilities. Quite small but very practical with its hidden pockets and useful design, the Clapton is as much a signature piece with the tuck lock inspired by the heritage Vuitton trunks as much as a very modern take on what bags should provide women today.
Lightweight, decidedly trendy, the Clapton backpack will fit your work uniform just as well as your romantic weekend outfits… what more did you need?

Dramatic, graphic, feminine but raw with its black all-over look and golden hardware, the Louis Vuitton Moon backpack is for your inner femme fatale wanderer of the night’s whims to thrive at the crook of your elbow or up on your shoulders.
A veal leather canvas embossed with the LV Monogram Midnight logo feature and a brand new signature design coined by Nicolas Ghesquière make the very essence of this Moon backpack. The shiny black leather is given depth and relief thanks to the embossed details.
The new “V” – in a very 80s kind of Stranger Things font – is the background for a giant “Louis Vuitton” written in the same new font and the Monogram Midnight coated plain back leather canvas add again to the drama and so very luxury look of the Moon.
A golden lock on the lop with the iconic LV engraved on it is the finish touch echoing to the gold-coloured zip locks of the front and main pockets of the bag.
The Louis Vuitton Moon backpack is a classic yet outstanding design that sure will have you very soon fall in love with it. High-quality and definitely luxury-made, the Moon backpack is for adventurers of the night and women with a femme fatale look who do not fear red lipstick, high heels and Saint-Laurent women suits.
Dramatic, graphic and baroque at the same time, the Moon backpack by Ghesquière is pure high-fashion embodied in embossed veal leather.
