The Fashion Cycle Revives the Trompe L’oeil Bag with a Luxurious Twist
The Return of Trompe L’oeil Bag
Fashion is cyclical. The trompe l’oeil, or “trick of the eye” bag, popular about a decade ago, has made a comeback over the last two years. But this time around, it’s not the mainstream brands staging a “counter-attack,” but the luxury houses themselves stepping down to corner the market.
LOUIS VUITTON‘s Fall/Winter 2023 Collection
The Fall/Winter 2023 collection from LOUIS VUITTON has appointed Kidsuper founder, Colm Dillane, as a guest designer. The collection brings forth a series of unexpected and fun designs, including trompe l’oeil bags named “Freezer Soft Trunk” and “Freezer Sac Plat.”
Intricate Details and Luxury Materials
The classic Handle Soft Trunk and Sac Plat bags, along with many details, are intricately etched into the bag’s silver surface. From many angles, it genuinely appears as if the bag is frozen solid in a casing. In stark contrast to many luxury brands experimenting with “plastics,” LV has conscientiously selected its materials this time around, and the silver bag is still made from natural leather.
Pricing and Availability
The LOUIS VUITTON Freezer Soft Trunk is priced at $3700, while the Freezer Sac Plat comes with a price tag of $3950. You can make these exquisite pieces yours by purchasing them from the brand’s official website or brick-and-mortar stores.
In this exciting revival, LOUIS VUITTON brings the trompe l’oeil bag trend back to life, offering an innovative and luxurious spin on the concept. Fashionistas and LV enthusiasts – gear up to add these stunning pieces to your collection!
