How to Pack a Carry-On Bag From Louis Vuitton
No longer! To regain some of that “you can’t have me” sparkle, Louis Vuitton released the Capucine bag (made from the same coveted leather of a special Swiss cow that Hermes uses for the Birkin bag, no less). It costs $4,600,a price tag that guarantees rescue from ubiquity and deliverance into exclusivity. The brand built “It” bag frenzy like a pro: First, they cast Michelle Williams in a buzzworthily gorgeous ad campaign , then Angelina Jolie was snapped toting the bag around town. Then everyone from Hollywood starlets to Real Housewives wanted it. But of course, Vuitton only released the already sold-out bag in small batches, creating a months-long waiting list.

The news implies Louis Vuitton’s efforts to strengthen its offering of expensive leather bags to reposition itself as more upmarket and exclusive – as did Gucci recently – is starting to yield positive results. An informal Reuters survey of Louis Vuitton shops in Milan, Paris and London revealed shortages of the 3,500 euro ($4,600) Capucine bags since their launch in June, with long waiting lists. On New Bond Street in London, there was only one sample bag with a “not for sale” sticker on it and 40 people had already reserved one but assistants said the bags were likely to be available only at the end of September or early in October. The Capucine handbag in full-grain Taurillon calf leather, a material also used by rival brand Hermes, is several times more expensive than Louis Vuitton’s canvas 600 euro-LV-embossed bags with which the brand built its name and profitability. Bernard Arnault, the boss of parent company LVMH, said in January that Louis Vuitton planned to prune its portfolio of canvas bags, which make up two thirds of its business and generate gross margins of 90 percent. Analysts expect gross margins from leather bags such as Capucine to be slightly lower. Shop assistants said they took delivery of only a handful of Capucine bags every other week over the summer, intimating Louis Vuitton may have deliberately caused the shortage to create a buzz around the product – taking a leaf out of Hermes’ book. LVMH and Louis Vuitton declined to comment. Officially citing production constraints, Hermes is known in the luxury world for its shortages and waiting lists, particularly for its popular 7,000 to 30,000 euro Birkin and Kelly bags, which help strengthen the brand’s appeal. “I take it as a very positive sign that the Capucine bag is sold out,” Exane BNP Paribas analyst Luca Solca said.

Two creators, each in his own language, appropriated cultural codes and trends in order to shape the history of contemporary fashion.” So far, so flowery. If anyone can make such grand claims then it is Louis Vuitton, however. It’s still the most successful and money-spinning brand owned by LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy), the luxury goods conglomerate which also includes Dior, Givenchy and Celine in its portfolio. While Louis Vuitton’s own tenure was characterised by the birth of industrialisation and more widespread travel, and related to both the values of hand-craftsmanship and technological advancement in both spheres, Jacobs’ rise to fashion supremacy reflects the mores of globalisation in fashion today.
