Rihanna and her Louis Vuitton x Frank Gehry Twisted Monogram Bag

Louis Vuitton - Twisted Box by Frank Gehry

Whether it’s a car, a brand of moisturizer, or (naturally) a handbag, savvy designers are always clambering to get their bags on the arm of the world’s most recognizable household names. Sometimes however, the rare celeb just wants to carry a bag that’s unique and fun.

Rihanna - LV x Frank Gehry Twisted Box

With the fashion shows in full swing and a-listers attending in droves, it’s been a great week to be a bag-spotter. Far and away, Alexa Chung took home the uniqueness prize this week for her Louis Vuitton x Frank Gehry Twisted Box Monogram Bag, which has been previously spotted on another style trailblazer, singer Rihanna.

If you think about a time when you might have accidentally left your trinket box on top of a radiator, or perhaps stored something too heavy on top of it over a long period of time, you’ll already be familiar with the unconventional shape of the Twisted Box Monogram Bag from Louis Vuitton.

A handbag with such angular, sharp lines may seem strange to many, but in a way it is a bit of a forgone conclusion when you consider the designer. Frank Gehry, the award-winning Canadian-American architect is responsible for the design, isn’t exactly known the world over for his softness of line or weakness of aesthetic. Frank Gehry is after all, the man who brought us the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao, Spain and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles; both structures that make the most out of his rising, angular, and twisted (and we mean that literally) design ethos.

The Louis Vuitton x Frank Gehry Twisted box Monogram Bag was part of a limited-edition run called the Iconoclasts collection which debuted in the Fall of 2014, and in addition to Gehry featured such big hitters as Christian Louboutain, Karl Lagerfeld, Cindy Sherman, Mark Newson, and Rei Kawakubo.

Finally, here's a parting shot of Rihanna and Frank all the way back at the beginning: 2014. They'll always have Paris. And New York. And London. And Timbs.

This star has done single for a long time and she knows she does not need a man to treat herself to a nice meal.

Rihanna headed out without beau Drake to have favourite restaurant, Giorgio Baldi's.

The 28-year-old singer embraced a subtle but stylish look as she popped into the Santa Monica, California, eatery late on Wednesday night.

As he song Needed Me says, 'I was good on my own/ That's the way it was', Rihanna certainly looked amazing as she stepped out solo.

For her night of tasty Italian fare, the singer wore a pair of tan suede flared trousers with a long cream knit sweater.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the cutest of them all? Well well well, it’s the newest Louis Vuitton Reversed Monogram Camera Box Bag!

The perfect feminine day-to-evening small bag companion, this one pairs easily with most looks. With its cute size and overall look, this camera box bag deserves another feature.

It features the Signature lock closure that we absolutely love! Its removable adjustable leather strap is also functional and practical. Taking a look inside, it has an inside flat pocket.

Introducing the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2016 Bag Collection. The new collection features the handbags that were presented in the runway show which includes new designs such as the City Cruiser and City Trunk. These two styles are miniature versions of the brand’s vintage travel bags. Also new this season is the chic Camera Box, a small boxy bag with a top handle and the Atlantis bag, a hobo bag which includes an additional shoulder strap. While the classic City Steamer Bag is now available in East West shape, as well as Clutch style. This Fall, Louis Vuitton introduces the Monogram Reverse which is the iconic Monogram Canvas in inverted colors. Wild Animal print and World Tour Stickers are also featured in the brand’s latest bags.


The Louis Vuitton Icon and Iconoclasts Collection turned a lot of heads when it was announced, mostly because of the perennially bold-faced names from the worlds of fashion and design that had signed on to participate. Louis Vuitton tasked fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo, as well as architect Frank Gehry, photographer Cindy Sherman and industrial designer Mark Newson with creating artful fashion pieces using the brand's signature monogram print, and now we know what each of them did with the challenge.
It was rumored from the beginning that Lagerfeld, perhaps the project's most surprising participant, would make a punching bag, and not only that, but it'll come in three sizes, hang with handbag-like straps on its included stand and also function as a regular handbag. For more serious training, a full-size punching bag and storage trunk, both covered in monogram canvas, are also available for an undisclosed price. To finish out the theme, a set of boxing gloves and their weekender-like case are also part of Lagerfeld's capsule collection.

Louboutin and Sherman went in particularly colorful directions with their contributions, while Kawakubo was as weird as you'd expect her to be and Gehry was duly architectural. Newson's fleece-paneled backpacks were easily the most wearable of bags in the collection, a sensibility that should serve him well at his new employer: Apple.

Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere 30 Voyage Stickers

Handbags

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Because it’s never too early to keep you guys updated as far as new bag arrivals are concerned, here’s your quick first look at Louis Vuitton’s Speedy Bandouliere 30 Voyage Stickers, which is officially set to be released in Singapore (and around the region) come 1 October 2016, though honestly I’ve already been seeing it pop up all over Instagram.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Simply put, it’s basically a Speedy Bandouliere 30 (you know, a Speedy but with a sling) and with ‘stickers’, actually printed graphics that you’ll find on the front and the side of the bag. Reminiscent of the stickers we’ve all seen during Louis Vuitton’sSeries 3 exhibition in Singapore, there’s no doubt that it’s definitely a fun bag, with flamingos, a vintage sports car and a steering wheel (???) all thrown in for good measure. Priced at SGD2330, the 30 cm by 21 cm bag will also come in a miniature version, the Nano Speedy (also with sling) which will retail for SGD1510.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Cute yes, but here’s my question. Would you stick to the classics and just get the plain Speedy, or is this something that you’ll want to add to your collection as well? What say you? Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the Nano Speedy measures 16 cm by 12.5 cm.
