The Louis Vuitton Alma bag has been a part of the brands family now for years, being released in their classic Monogram and Damier prints as well as seasonal colours, iconic colours and of course their gorgeous Epi and Vernis leathers, as well as new prints each season. Honestly, there’s an Alma bag for absolutely everyone and it even comes in 4 different sizes, ranging from nano, small, medium and large.
Since the Alma is so popular in Louis Vuitton’s collections, it’s become somewhat of an icon and it features in their campaigns every year. Last year for the Spring/Summer collection, Michelle Williams did a campaign for them and it was amazing! It really showed off the array of gorgeous and bold colours that the Alma was being released in, which is enough to make any of us swoon. Some of the Alma features include a little padlock to close your double zippers together, a detachable cross body strap on the smaller size, a gorgeous felt lining, a structured body which holds its shape and more. You can even buy it in a quilted leather, ostrich leather and more.
The Parnasséa are all classic leather pieces that lack the forced logo displays that have often characterized Vuitton’s leather goods in the past; the Capucines, for instance, has a large logo, but the bag’s structure provides an opportunity for the owner to carry it with the monogram completely covered.
Other than that, it’s just smooth, expensive-looking leather as far as the eye can see, plus gleaming hardware in either silver or gold, depending on the bag’s color. The sophisticated design feels in line with what customers expect to see at a $4,000-plus price point, which is what the largest Taurillon leather version, the MM pictured above, will set you back. The newest version of the Alma also comes in two smaller sizes, a petite PM and a mini PPM. For comparison, the PPM is 9.8 inches wide, the PM is 12.6 inches and the MM clocks in at 13.8 inches, perfect for an everyday option.
