When Virgil Abloh took over as Creative Director for Louis Vuitton Menswear, his first collection met with mixed reviews. While some people loved the new direction and aesthetics that Abloh brought to the brand, others were unsure. However, one of Abloh's outstanding hits was the Louis Vuitton Soft Trunk. The bag received a lot of attention even before it was released in early 2019 as part of the men's spring 2019 collection. Since then, the bag has been rebuilt countless times and is one of the brand's most sought-after bags for both women and men.
As an ode to Louis Vuitton's rich history of trunk manufacturing, the soft trunk is reinterpreted as a supple, portable shoulder bag. Features of the bag such as the reinforced corners and the hardware are style elements that are taken from the brand's classic archive pieces. In addition to the new versions we saw for the pre-collection in spring 2020, the brand has released some new additions to its soft trunk line. The first is a beautiful exotic version of the soft trunk made of white crocodile with matt hardware details. This stunning bag features the malleable construction of the soft trunk and a resin chain that gives the bag a sleek, modern touch.
The smaller version of the bag, the Mini Soft Trunk, was also re-created, and the latest additions are just as desirable as those from previous seasons. There is a floral print on the classic LV monogram canvas, which gives this bag a colorful, summery atmosphere that is perfect for the warmer months. The floral print is emphasized by black details and this bag is intended to evoke Abloh's commitment to diversity. The second addition, which was also seen on the catwalk, features a thick, embroidered monogram motif that gives the brand's iconic monogram canvas a unique accent. Although these bags are part of the men's line, they manage to attract attention in both men and women, making the soft case one of Louis Vuitton's most sought-after pieces again.
