Sofia Coppola’s small capsule collection of bags and shoes for Louis Vuitton debuted in Tokyo on Friday night. The project was born when Coppola visited the custom orders department at Louis Vuitton’s factory in Asnieres, France. She wanted to design the perfect bag that didn’t yet exist and wanted something that wasn’t too big or heavy. The result is the SC bag – a slouchy duffle bag that comes in 4 leathers: dark gray suede, navy blue calf leather, burgundy calf leather and LV’s signature monogram canvas. “I wanted a bag that I could use every day that was coming from the heritage of Louis Vuitton’s great leather goods, not connected to the fashion side of the brand.” In addition to the SC bag, Sofia also designed a clutch and evening shoes that reminded her of her mom’s YSL shoes from the 1970s. She opted for a style that had “a heel you can really wear all night and it’s comfortable but still looks chic.” The clutch features hardware resembling the locks from classic Louis Vuitton’s trunks. I’m excited to see these pieces in person because so many of the details are lost in photos. I especially like the clutch with hardware reminiscent of that of the classic trunks. The collection is set to drop in select Louis Vuitton shops in March.
