From the Louis Vuitton men's Spring / Summer 2009 catwalks recently in Paris.
In the spirit of 90's minimalism, these bags are made from luxury materials such as ostrich leather and seem to be inspired by vintage school satchels as evident from buckles, straps and name badge holder in the centre.
The monochromatic use of colour and leather give them a very understated luxury feel. For spring summer, they have a pretty wintery feel but i guess would make a great bag for a day down at the beach.
These bags signify and support the shift back towards 'dressy' mens backpacks. In particular the more structured variety. I really like the flat side handle and the leather loop tab in the centre.
The towel, or blanket holder at the base of the bags would make this a good one for a picnic or for carrying additional items or equipment down below. Due to the styling, materials and details, they also have a very luggage feel about them and would make a nice addition to a set of LV suitcases for more rugged terrain.
