Louis Vuitton's Raindrop Basace Bag
There's not a lot to be said about this bag as looking at it pretty much says it all. Louis Vuitton is certainly taking a step into new territory with this Raindrop Besace design, departing from the usual classic and refined style to this edgy, trendy, and somewhat controversial design. Available in the two colors featured here. I've heard they're made of leather but look very much like plastic trash bags with drawstring closure. Few details are available but obviously there's also goldtone hardware and a detachable leather shoulder strap (in case you want to carry it by hand like a real garbage bag) and I'm guessing there's no lining or interior pockets to speak of. Watch for them this spring for $1,996 each.
Now that's different........I actually like it (the brown would be my choice); with it's long strap, it will look great as a cross-body bag. Louis Vuitton is certainly keeping things interesting .
