Louis Vuitton Shrinks Iconic Luggage Trunks To Arm-Candy Size For AW14

LV's monogrammed luggage trunks are instantly recognisable the world over and now Louis Vuitton has come up trumps with a mini handbag version...

You know you've made it when you can bag yourself a set of Louis Vuitton monogrammed luggage without taking out a second mortgage but, let's face it, even if you have a spare four-figures to shell out on one suitcase, there's no way you can show it off day-to-day. That is, until now. 

Louis Vuitton has given its iconic trunks the mini-treatment for their AW14 handbag range with these seriously cute micro bags. Affectionately named the Petite Malle which literally means 'small trunk' – it sounds so much better in French, doesn't it? – we have to wonder why they haven't thought of this genius idea before...

The Petite Malle features all the same characteristics as their much larger siblings; the luxe metal hardware, leather edging and embossed luggage tag are all there, which make the bag seem even tinier, thus making it way more adorable and covetable. So much so, we reckon the design, which features heavily in the brand's new campaign with the Anglo-French actress and star of Nymphomaniac, Charlotte Gainsbourg, is going to be an instant sell-out. Set to hit stores later this year, we've already started saving for one of our very own...
