Louis Vuitton Dauphine Bag : Luxury Reveal

As soon as I laid my eyes on the Louis Vuitton DAUPHINE MM from the SS19 collection, I fell instantly in love. 

Dubbed the new 'IT' bag of the season this beauty from Louis Vuitton, sold-out as quickly as it was released for general sale but I was super fortunate to get my hands on this must-have luxury handbag, as soon as it was released.

My adorable sales associate, recalled how much I raved about this bag a month before the release date and when seven pre-orders arrived in Dubai, she called me up and asked if I wanted one? Of course, I couldn't contain myself and jumped at the chance of adding this stunner into my collection,  so replied with a resounding YES! 

I've had this bag in my collection for a while now and like my Pochette Metis reveal wanted to give you my thoughts of this must-have handbag of 2019! Initially introduced in the '70s, so naturally has that elegant vintage aesthetic, which immediately attracted me, but been cleverly rejuvenated by Nicolas Ghesquière for its Spring / Summer re-release. 

The bag shape remains the same on the MM size and still features the classic front lock in gold hardware with large LV logo, albeit an addition of a circle around the LV lettering.  

The updates although subtle, add just enough to bring this handbag back 'in vogue' including the combo of monogram with monogram reverse canvas and heavy-duty hexagonal chain strap encapsulates the fashion house's ability to refresh vintage pieces.

The Dauphine bag is super chic, and as a handbag enthusiast, I'm ecstatic to add this sensational bag into my collection.

My only con with this bag is with the inside. Due to the concertina base shape, the interior is quite small even on this larger sized MM model, and to retain the shape of the bag I've had to learn to pack light. 

To be honest, at first, I found the limited interior space a bit challenging to use as an everyday handbag, but with my sudden love of smaller bags, I've now had to be frugal with what I carry. 

By using a tiny pouch as my main bag organiser and by using the interior middle zipped compartment, which I generally find redundant on my high-end bags, I've managed to adapt this bag to fit all of my daily essentials.

As a special touch, this bag comes with two straps. The first being an adjustable leather strap with a nifty concealed extender, the second a heavy gold chain strap, which enables this bag to be worn in many ways and dressed up or down to fit any occasion;

If you're lucky enough to get your hands on this elusive bag, I'd be a little cautious with using this gold chain daily, as I have found the heavy chain has a tendency to sit flush on the bottom trim and if left on over a prolonged period, could cause damage with denting or chipping.  

With that said the hexagonal chain strap is a great addition which adds that extra 'je ne sais quoi.'

Like many LV classic pieces, this handbag is a head-turner, which I will continue to be besotted with for many years to come.  If you'd like to see more of this bag or any of my lux collection,  do check out and follow my Instagram for regular posts.
