Louis Vuitton, LV, a little Louis….
There are so many names out there, but they all refer to the storied French fashion house that has been a veritable staple for men across the globe since the 19th century.
Starting as a trunk maker in Paris, the ever-iconic LV has blossomed into a variety of ultra-luxury bags, accessories, and more. The iconic monogram (and other tried-and-true patterns) can now be easily spotted on premium accessories and style go-to’s from Seoul to San Francisco.
Naturally, then, we’ve rounded up our top 5 Louis Vuitton must-have staples, including timeless bags for everything from board meetings to quick jaunts out of town, stylish sneakers, and wallets that are guaranteed to make a splash no matter the occasion.
We can’t really think of a better way to make a splash in any office or business setting than with a classic Louis Vuitton briefcase. It comes in a variety of styles and materials, such as the archetypal coffee-palate monogram Porte-Documents Voyage Briefcase in canvas, to the sleek ultra-mod Epi Robusto Briefcase in leather and gorgeous silver hardware. A Louis Vuitton briefcase is perfect for a sartorially-minded guy with a business plan in mind.
With work at bay, and time to play front and center, a Louis Vuitton Keepall is the ideal companion for a weekend getaway. These spacious, duffel-like bags feature the ultimate synthesis of form and function, with enough room to stash everything you think for a memorable vacation without sacrificing any points in the style column. Louis Vuitton Keepalls truly come in every color and pattern, with the fashion house often issuing new and limited editions to the growing collection. Some of our favorites include the classic Damier Ebene, the colorful and artistic Monogram Watercolor, and, of course, the hyper-metropolitan cool limited editions in PVC by menswear artistic director Virgil Abloh.
A great choice for day to night, a Louis Vuitton backpack is an attractive choice for the modern, style-forward guy. Who said backpacks are just for school? The Christopher PM model features eye-catching belt details and two external flap pockets for extra space and organization while the Campus backpack is a little more classic with an extra-lux and stylish twist. Of course, these myriad backpacks come in all the best of Louis Vuitton patterns and textiles, including supple leather and the classic monogram and Damier. Looking for something a little bit more on the go? Try a smaller Avenue Sling style.
For the sneakerhead or the guy who just wants a little extra panache in the foot region, a Louis Vuitton sneaker is the perfect mix of high and low that is an assured method to turn heads. Ranging in styles from high-tops to the more classic tennis shoe, Louis Vuitton sneakers offer a casual and more relaxed take on hyper-luxury. While white and black are always wonderful choices, we are particularly smitten with the more colorful variety, such as monogrammed classic sneakers in shades of violet or indigo for that extra pop.
Picture this: You are out to dinner with friends and the time comes to pay the bill. Everyone grabs for their credit cards and you pull out a fabulous Louis Vuitton wallet. Comments and compliments ensue! If you are maybe new to ultra-luxury goods, a Louis Vuitton wallet is absolutely the perfect starting point. Louis Vuitton wallets come in a variety of styles, including the classic monogram fold (perfect for all your cards and cash), and the more on-to-go card holders in sumptuous leathers.
