Not everyone is into safe bets. We get it. But majority are. The truth is, what flies off the shelves for top fashion houses are these very same safe bets which we can comfortably state are the winners of the popular vote for good reasons. An example of this is Louis Vuitton’s Twist bags, which have been updated each season for the last five years (it debuted at the cruise 2015 show) and has become one of the most important modern day bag blueprints for the fashion house. Swathed in gorgeous Epi leather, the centrepiece of these flap bags is the twist lock which is also the inspiration for its name. When locked, it flexes the instantly recognisable LV initial. To unlock, the owner simply has to pivot the L-shaped hardware into a V by twisting it counter-clockwise. (Even if we hadn’t clued you in, you would still know how to operate this instinctively.) What has been updated on the Twist in recent seasons is the strap that now allows for a variety of carrying styles thanks to options in leather and metal chain braid, full leather, and even a comfy embroidered fabric. Where and when to carry the Twist? Girl, anytime and everywhere (flip the images above as proof).
