Almost ten years ago, Nicolas Ghesquière debuted as the Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton Women’s collections. In his first runway show, the French designer had the Herculean task of keeping the Maison’s centenary legacy intact while also presenting new, exciting ideas that kept Louis Vuitton as fresh, relevant and contemporary as usual. One of the most celebrated pieces from that show was the GO-14 handbag, which now resurfaces in full spirit and with a unique feature: the malletage, which speaks of the brand’s rich craftsmanship and savoir faire.
“There are certain universal codes unique to Louis Vuitton. It was a matter of reintegrating them and transforming them into a new environment,” Ghesquière says about working with the malletage technique, a unique, distinctive element of the Maison’s heritage. But implementing this technique isn’t easy. Quite the opposite. The malletage, which has been used in their emblematic trunks since the beginning, has evolved throughout the decades and become even more refined. Very few ateliers who work with highly-qualified craftsmen can make it as the creative process requires over twenty different steps.

Now, Louis Vuitton focuses on the GO-14 bags and its wide range, which includes variations in white, black, tan, and gradient colours. It also features a new jewel chain with an intricate slot system that makes it adjustable, hence allowing the wearer to carry it on their shoulder, arm or hand.
