Louis Vuitton shows it's got the stuff it takes to make minaudieres with the best of them. It's just a shame that the label still hasn't learned the art of restraint.
There's a lot to love about this minaudiere. Its jewel shape is really striking, and I love the way its angled lines are emphasized with polished golden brass. I also adore the way the moody tortoiseshell acetate panels complement the gleaming metal. But then Louis Vuitton had to go and slap its large logo on top of things.
It's a shame that while the fashion industry has moved away from obvious branding, Louis Vuitton hasn't followed suit. We get it; this is a Louis Vuitton purse. But by screaming it in such a loud way, the minaudiere loses a lot of its class. Leaving it at the subtle engraving on the push lock clasp would have appeared much more elegant.
Personally I think the logo cheapens the minaudiere and makes it appear less than its $3500 price tag. If you're a fan I suppose you'll be happy to advertise you're carrying Louis Vuitton. Personally I'm disappointed that a bag with such promise has ended up looking so tacky and dated.
