Man Bag Monday: Brad Goreski carries Louis Vuitton

November 9, 2011 Leave a comment

We try and make it a point to do Man Bag Monday for one reason and one reason only – bags made for men can be every bit as stylish and beautiful as those made for women, and a lot of them are so nice that I wouldn’t think twice about carrying one. Androgyny is in! Just as Andrej Pejic.

And that’s what kept me so transfixed by these pictures that Vlad took of Brad Goreski outside of the Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 show in New York a few weeks ago. His Louis Vuitton Keepall 45 Bandouliere could be carried by literally anyone and look chic.

 

For some reason, this bag has been playing tricks on me. Initially, I assumed it was one of Louis Vuitton’s men’s travel bags. But then, the size of the bag started making me second-guess myself, and I thought perhaps it was the biggest version of Sofia Coppola’s hugely successful leather bags for Vuitton. But the women’s bags come with a clochette instead of a luggage tag, which this satchel very clearly has, so perhaps the 45s just aren’t as big in real life as they are in my mind. For those hell-bent on traditional masculinity, this design is probably best left for use as an overnight bag or carry-on, but I think it works equally well as a bag to carry to the office. If the lady of the house doesn’t steal it first, that is. Buy through Louis Vuitton. I can’t tell which leather Brad’s bag is, but the Epi version sells for $1890.

Damier Graphite Keepall 55 – GORGEOUS

November 9, 2011 Leave a comment

As a male I don’t need nearly as many bags as Ms. Michaelrcks does so I just get two or three a year.

This will be my first purchase in 6 months and though it isn’t cheap, I trust LV for its style and quality.

Let me know what you think!

Kate Moss needs a brand new bag! Keepall 55

November 9, 2011 Leave a comment

Wow Kate! We know you’ve been around forever- and you’ve recently been through the ringer with relationships and all. You may have gotten your Keepall when you first got into the business. It has sentimental value- or whatever. But let’s think about this carefully:

The Louis Vuitton Monogram Keepall 55: a fantastic travel bag. I mean, this is a true duffle. You really can stuff it well, but it isn’t a hard case, so if you don’t pack it too full, you can use it as a carry on.  This poor old bag has served her purpose. She looks so tired, poor thing. She needs to be retired- laid to rest in that comfortable spot on the top shelf at the back corner of your closet.

Now, I know it isn’t right to compare- but check out hot High School Musical’s Ashley Tisdale looks with her fresh 55 Bandouliere (the same bag, but with the strap):

Lucky for you, we have a gently used authentic Louis Vuitton Monogram Keepall 55 right now on eBay! You don’t want to run out and get a brand new one- that would look like you actually care what any of us say about your dirty old keepall. Ours has a nice, light patina- like a bag that you’ve had for a while, but have just taken really good care of. Check it out!

Drop by on your next trip to LA and we’ll set you up with a whole new (well, new to you!) set of travel accessories!
