Louis Vuitton Introduces the New Formals
Louis Vuitton is updating its leather travel collection with four new styles of briefcases. Dubbed the New Formals, the men’s accessories are meant to accommodate a modern businessman by introducing four fashion-forward options to bring back the briefcase. The collection includes the Soft Trunk Briefcase, a trendy box-form bag; the Sac Plat Horizontal Zippé, a more traditional serviette briefcase available in two variations; and the Cabas Business, a bulkier multifunctional piece. Introduced by the brand’s menswear artistic director Virgil Abloh, the collection is the latest to showcase the new aesthetic potential in the world of men’s bags and travel pieces. (Remember the hologram bag from last spring?) According to a release, the French designer vows to cater to “men who insist on the freedom to be themselves.” With the stylish new addition to the Louis Vuitton travel canon, there are more options than ever for choosing an everyday bag, but sometimes it’s best to just keep it simple.
