Yesterday morning I headed along to the beautiful confines of the Merrion Hotel (I admit that, until that moment, I had only ever been in the Cellar bar, which is a lovely, intimate space – perfect for getting quite drunk in) to preview Louis Vuitton‘s S/S accessories collections, available in their boutique in Brown Thomas. Once their, their charming PRs talked about how Vuitton, as a heritage brand, rarely reinvents the wheel; instead, it reinterprets classic shapes and designs or launches old favourites in new, seasonal-appropriate colours.

This is the Sofia Coppola bag, inspired by its namesake and in a beautiful crocodile skin for spring (front) and a pillarbox red as part of Louis Vuitton’s Cruise collection.

And check out the men’s selection – in what I’m telling you is going to be the next black: charcoal grey. Just gorgeous – I also love that the strap on the large briefcase in the back is detachable. If I found myself anywhere near one of those I’d be commandeering that gorgeous canvas strap for use on all kinds of things!
