La Petite Malle, a New Classic in the LOUIS VUITTON handbag collection, was inspired by their legendary trunks. As the name, Petite Malle ("little trunk") suggests, it looks like an exquisite little vanity case and it is made in either the iconic Monogram or Damier canvas. Undoubtedly, to make a beautiful piece like this requires great skill and expertise. It was interesting to watch the craftsman at work at the recent LOUIS VUITTON SERIES 3 Exhibition at 180 Strand, an art gallery in London.

La Petite Malle is an example of how the designer, Nicolas Ghesquierè, combines the tradition of LOUIS VUITTON with his own new ideas. At the exhibition, a large trunk was displayed, which held both LOUIS VUITTON'S historic secrets and Nicolas Ghesquierè's new ones.

Nicolas Ghesquierè's inspirations and ideas have led to his Autumn-Winter 2015/2016 collection for LOUIS VUITTON. As I sat on low steps and watched screens displaying models walking at the fashion show, I felt as if I was actually there in the front row!
