It may be the DIYer in me but I loved seeing this fabulous bag deconstructed and all the elements compartmentalized into pieces and getting a sneak peek into the process it takes to become its destiny The Louis Vuitton monogram has been graffiti’d, Murakami’d, embroidered, fringed, cut, pasted, and collaged in a myriad of fabrics, styles, and eye-popping treatments. This season, the latest LV must-have speaks its must-haveness at a lower decibel than some of its forebears as the brand emphasizes quality and craft. Take, for example, the new Speedy bag in python, a paragon of handbag production that requires over 400 technical maneuvers in fabrication to realize. . . .
