Every once in a while, a bag (back) story enthralls you and draws you closer. The Pont 9 bag is named in honour of the oldest bridge in Paris, the Pont Neuf. The landmark sits right across the Louis Vuitton headquarters, serving as a source of inspiration for the house.
The first in the House’s new LV Pont 9 leather line, the sleek bag is an appealing work of design. Look closely and you will be enchanted by the effort that goes into the details. A reinterpretation of a 1930s archive logo, the distinctive LV Circle signature adorns the flap, while a smaller version embellishes the shoulder strap, acting also, as the mechanism for adjusting its length.
More delightful details await when the flap is lifted. The magnetic closure is shaped like the Monogram Flower motif, and if colours bring you joy, the sleek calfskin exterior is complemented with an equally vibrant leather in a different colour, lining the interior. Featured here is the Pont 9 in Dahlia Pink.
Retailing at SGD 5,350, the Pont 9 also comes in classic Noir and Crème, as well as Bleu Orage and Summer Gold.
