mini is beautiful

Happy New Year 2013 to all Louis Vuitton's Fans.
Today I found out a new collection from an official Louis Vuitton's website.
It's mini, it's in. And they do say, good things come in small packages.

Louis Vuitton's mini icons come in different models and all shdes of colors in Epi and Monogran Vernis leathers, from bright and vivid to soften hues. The Alma BB is a smaller version of the Art Deco 1934 original and the Monceau BB - a mini replica of the 1986 classic, the Pochette Accessories a touch larger than the 1992 design. Pair with convetable leather goods made to match your chosen icon.

Louis Vuitton made a film featuring the all-new mini icons Alma BB and Monceau BB modelled by 3 bloggers. Here is a slideshow of some modeling pics of these mini bags and accessories.

My Opinion

Yesterday, I went to LV boutique to see 3 new colors of a vernis line. I'm a bit disappointed about a new rose indien (dark pink). From the picture, it seems more attractive but in real life I like more another pink called rose velours which is a dusty pink color. I think you can wear more clothes with this color. I would love to see a new Monceau BB in vernis also in order to make a comparison between Alma BB and Monceau BB but unfortunately my boutique doesn't get any Monceau BB. Anyway I think if you like a mini bag, Alma BB is a good choice over Monceau BB because you can find the bag in the same shape as Monceau BB from other brands. Even though Monceau BB seems to hold more, Alma BB is still an Icon bag of the Louis Vuitton House.
For two new monogram releases, I like them both. Pochette Métis has a retro look whereas Métis has a modern and practical designs. Even though many people say that a new métis looks fake because it has a thin canvas and too thin removable shoulder strap, this bag seems versatile and practical for everyday use.
