A Closer Look at the Louis Vuitton Capucines BB Bag

Louis Vuitton is known the world over for its classic logo print monogram canvas. While many bag lovers, including myself, begin their premium designer bag collections with a classic Louis Vuitton style like a Speedy or Neverfull, Vuitton devotees know that the brand offers much more than these well-known styles and always popular. While the Monogram canvas is super durable and extremely iconic, Vuitton’s other bags are also incredibly well made and beautifully crafted. This is more than evident in theLouis Vuitton Capucines BB bag, which currently has my heart racing.

The striking details of this bag are the first thing that caught my attention. Shiny gold metal studs are arranged to resemble rays of the sun, as this design was inspired by a majestic sun sculpture found on the house’s flagship on Place Vendôme in Paris. This elegant design adds a beautiful and striking touch to the Capucines BB bag, which is crafted from full-grain Taurillon leather. The leather is soft and really nice to the touch, but the full grain component makes this leather much more durable than a soft leather bag. In addition, the bag has four metal feet, which makes this bag quite resistant to damage and at the same time looks elegant and stylish. This bag can be carried two ways: via the top handle strap or using the longer detachable strap, which is adjustable.

Inside, the Capucines BB is lined in soft calfskin and is separated into two compartments for maximum organization. There is a zippered pocket on the rear interior of the bag, as well as a slit pocket on the front interior of the bag. While the bag’s top flap keeps your belongings concealed, there’s no metal closure or anything of the sort. The flap can be tucked in or out of the bag, changing the look of the bag. Simply put, this bag is truly sensational and while this incredibly stylish bag doesn’t fit my current needs and style, I certainly wish it did.
