The name Capucines is considered a legend in the LV world. In 1854, Louis Vuitton first opened his boutique in Rue des Capucines in Paris. The name is actually taken from the street itself. The Louis Vuitton Capucines bag has a very classic design, with a single flap. It is accented with a single ‘flower button’, reminiscent of Louis Vuitton’s icon in one of its signature monograms.
This lovely bag stole my heart
The bag has been launched with Michelle Williams as its face. Likewise, Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has also been spotted lugging around her Capucines handbag. The move of Louis Vuitton to release a classic, all-leather bag that is hard-to-get successfully regained the brand’s exclusivity. Some analysts say that it is a quite positive sign that the LV Capucines is sold out in stores in the U.S. and in Europe.
The uniqueness of this bag struck a chord with me, which is why I gave it five stars. You either love the cool vibe of a hybrid bag or hate it – I, of course, love it. There’s something about the juxtaposition of classic Louis Vuitton monogram canvas and the modern multi-bag shape. Finished off with a sporty utility crossbody strap, this bag is effortlessly cool.
Ok, guys, I’m gonna have to scream with one word: O.M.G I have found possibly the best replica of this Capucines ever. And I will introduce it to you guys right now!
Let’s get to know my replica Louis Vuitton Capucines!
I LOVED it when I saw it in person. This pink signature bag may look simple, but it’s anything. It is a marriage of two types of leather: rounded, strong bull-calf leather alongside supple, silky calfskin. The combination adds a level of discreet elegance that is hard to ignore.
Another special touch surrounds Louis Vuitton’s initials, which have never been seen in this interpretation. The LV initials are sheathed in calf leather and then inserted into claws set into the grain of the leather. It may not seem like a big deal, but this is new for the brand and took its craftsmen much careful development.
But above all else, I love how this bag is a marriage of practicality and elegance. The structured top handle design is sophisticated and the bag’s wide shape and separate interior compartments allow you to make the most of the space inside. The detachable and adjustable strap can be worn over the shoulder or crossbody. So it makes the Capucines infinitely practical and versatile. The flap is used to hide the contents of the bag and can be placed inside or outside, each giving a different look.
Seasons after seasons, there’s only once that the interior like a Capucines comes. The handbags interior is fully leather lined with a gorgeously partitioned interior that is roomy enough for all your daytime essentials. There’s a clasp and a ring to secure the bag’s contents and a middle large zippered compartment, flat pockets, and two large compartments to fit your entire world.
The stitching, the zippers, the heat-stamped logo, the interior – everything is spot on. And there are no sloppy spots!
