TikTok is Life Gen-Zer
The yellow Louis Vuitton Utility Bag is the perfect gift for the TikTok obsessed Gen-Zer in your life. It will definitely be the star of their next outfit challenge. Flexing with this Louis Vuitton cross body with sliding pouch could be the secret to gaining record views and finally trending them to the top of TikTok. It's also the perfect daily companion when they're filming their next TikTok on the streets or their new must share restaurant. While this model is from 2021, the yellow and pink is already sold out at Louis Vuitton so you'll only be able to find it at Sotheby's.
Your Favorite Dog Mom
What to get the special dog mom in your life? A cashmere sweater or Moncler puffer for her dog children is too obvious. This year, surprise and delight her with the Louis Vuitton x Grace Coddington Chien Bag. This limited edition bag is from the collaboration between Coddington and Nicolas Ghesquiere in 2018 that highlighted their shared love of animals. While Coddington is the cat lover, Ghesquiere's dog Leon was also included in the collection. The Chien bag is a rare find since this collection was an instant celeb and collector favorite and sold out almost immediately at pop-ups and stores.
Super Fetch & Mean Girls Obsessed
For your "on Wednesdays we wear pink" Mean Girls obsessed friend or family member the Louis Vuitton New Wave bag in Rose Ballerine is sure to impress. If she celebrates October 3rd and regularly sends you Mean Girls memes and GIFs you know she can never have enough pink shoulder bags. The dark comedy Mean Girls from 2004 has become a cult classic full of quotable one-liners. Celebrities, brands and the White House when President Obama was in office have all made references to the film.
Keeps Up with the Kardashians
If you haven't seen the epic handbag collection of the Kardashians, google it. If your friend has the closet to match, the Louis Vuitton Mini City Steamer in Fuchsia and Burgundy Brilliant Crocodilian is the gift for her. The city steamer is a nod to the history of the iconic house, transforming a classic travel trunk into an everyday bag. This particular piece is made out of alligator dyed in black and red with a process that gives it an ombré affect that changes with the light. The bag is also buffed with an agate stone achieving the shiny, or lissé, coating to the bag.
The Louis Vuitton Keepall is a great choice for the Celebrity Fanatic in your life. If your friend considers Page Six the source of truth then they also want to carry the celebrity luggage brand of choice. Louis Vuitton luggage has been popular with celebrities since Audrey Hepburn and Lauren Bacall of past and today with Rihanna, the Beckhams and the Hadids. Find a selection of Louis Vuitton Keepalls in a range of patterns for the always on the go/celebrity fanatic. The Keepall was first introduced in 1930 by Gaston Vuitton as a modern weekend bag in cotton canvas, followed by LV monogram canvas in the 1960s. The LV Keepall was also known as the "globe-trotter" and "tient-tout" or hold all.
Wanna Be K-pop BTS Idol
The Alligator Louis Vuitton Pochette Volga is the perfect gift for the Wanna be K-pop BTS idol in your life. The sunny color and rare alligator material will make your wanna be K-pop star feel just like a member of BTS. Louis Vuitton named BTS as House Ambassadors earlier this year due to the rising global popularity of Korean pop music and its global base on millions of fans. The name of the South Korean boy band BTS is an acronym of Bangtan Sonyeondan – translated as “Beyond the Scene,”. They were also named TIME’s Entertainer of the Year in 2020 and emerged as champions of positivity in pop with multiple initiatives.
Sustainable Couture Loyalist
The Louis Vuitton Maxi Multi Pochette Accessoires is perfect for the friend or loved that is equal parts Who What Wear trend setter and sustainable fashion loyalist.
