Louis Vuitton Epi Alma in new spring colours

[breadcrumb]

When you think of iconic bags you think of Mulberry’s Alexa, Hermès Birkin and perhaps even new comer Miu Miu’s Matelasse.

Of course uber brand, Louis Vuitton have a number of iconic bags themselves – Speedy, Lockit, Noè and the undisputed Alma.

The Louis Vuitton Epi Alma is definitely one of my favourite iconic bags. Practical, timeless and discreet – it is effortlessly sophisticated and perfect for all occasions. Whilst the Alma in vernis is hugely popular (partly due to the variety of colour ways it is available in), any fashionista worth her weight knows that epi leather rules! Far less loud and “shouty” than it’s vernis counterpart, the only downside of the epi line was the limited colours available – until now..

LV have launched 10 new amazing colours! From citrus yellow to fuchsia, orange and teal! And if you don’t want to be too bright but would still like a lighter colour tote why not go for grey, purple or navy blue…?

The massive push in variety has us wondering if LV are attempting to directly compete with Hermes super tote – The Birkin! The jury is still out – but we here at C+S are loving it.

Which colour will you buy?
