 As expected from Louis Vuitton, these distinctive handbags are not only must-have fashion accessories, but bold statements in luxury.

For a century and a half, Louis Vuitton has been synonymous with high-end fashion and exquisite craftsmanship. This season, the French design house is presenting two classic handbags in exotic animal skins that enhance the elegance, sophistication, and style for which the brand is known.

The Lockit PM Collection, shown here in brilliant blue and chestnut alligator skin, has earned a loyal following because of the clean and simples lines. The timeless appeal of the shape of the handbag attracts the sophisticated shopper, and designer details like the gold hardware-including the signature LV padlock and key-perfectly complement the skin shell. The ultimate fall accessory, the bags are priced at $24,200.

The Speedy Frame, shown on the previous page in the finest ostrich leather, is the latest fun and flirty offering from the revered brand. The natural tan skin is punctuated by four protective gold studs, ensuring a sturdy base wherever it’s set down. Boasting the signature padlock and key holder, the Speedy Frame is available for $12,900. As expected from Louis Vuitton, these distinctive handbags are not only must-have fashion accessories, but bold statements in luxury. Not yet available through the company website, stop at your local atelier to be one of the first trendsetters for fall.
