THE NEW IT BAG

Investment Piece

Friends always ask me questions, like what are the trends for this season? Is the Celine bag still in style? What is the new it bag?

I’m not suggesting that the Chanel Boy bag is out… I do not take back those purchases (I bought a red one to wear to my first Chanel runway show a few years ago and then a black patent one as my first purchase as “Mrs. Box”), but the Boy has definitely been trumped by the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle (Petite Malle is French for small trunk).

Louis Vuitton first debuted the Petite Malle in the Fall 2014 Runway Show in Paris; now, you can spot the It bag all over street style slideshows and Instagram.

Here are some of my favorite ways to style it:
