New Arrivals Alert: Louis Vuitton Mahina XXL


A bag named after a Polynesian deity? Sure, why not. Marc, you're one crafty designer. Only Mr. Jacobs could find inspiration in both religious folklore and SpongeBob SquarePants. Whatever his inspiration was for creating the Mahina collection for Louis Vuitton, it really doesn't matter. The bags are gorgeous. Available in black and grey (shown), the newly arrived Mahina XXL (a smaller XL should be coming along soon) is one enormous bag. Measuring a behemoth 32.3 x 16.5 x 11.4, this slouchy hobo is crafted from soft calfskin leather that's been treated to raise the grain and then coated to preserve the effect. The monogram pattern is perforated into the leather to create a unique design. Additional features include brass hardware, rolled leather handles, side buckled bands creating a "gathered" effect, top flap tab with push-lock closure and lined interior with zip pocket and key ring attachment. My only complaint with the 'Mahina XXL' is that it's just too big. If it were half its' size, it would be perfect. It would also be less expensive, and after I reveal the price, you'll wish it were smaller as well. The Mahina XXL is priced at a staggering $3750 via eLUXURY's exclusive Louis Vuitton boutique.
