One of our favourite things about Nicolas Ghesquière’s appointment as creative director of Louis Vuitton is unarguably the spin he put on the house’s handbags. Mixing the brand’s heritage with a modernist approach, Ghesquière transforms Vuitton’s traditional “malle” into a mini-handbag in different pearlescent shades and gold locket details – instant catwalk hit. We love this pink version shot for Please 18, which shines just as much by itself, reclining on a sofa for all to admire.
