Even though the chilling Autumn winds are gushing through my window, a girl can still dream of a sultry beach weather. Right?
Thanks to Louis Vuitton’s 2011 Beach collection, dreaming of an exotic land where the sun never sets, is even easier. Their new collection, Ailleurs, French for ‘somewhere else’, is an epitome of vibrant colour, tropical weather and flashy accessories.
The key pieces are canvas totes that come in three prints: the Promenade (Ville), Escale (Beach), and Aventure (Jungle). They are all designed and painted by British artist Pippa Cunningham who uses theÂ immaculateÂ charm of watercolours to express a girl’s dream vacation.
Promenade captures the glamour of the Riviera, of leisurely strolls in the shade of tall palm trees. Escale is about the white sand, blue sea and sun baking while sipping a cocktail. Aventure illustrates the exotic appeal of a tropical forest, where flora and fauna are the highlight.
The totes have an adjustable handle in grained leather, golden metal studs and the iconic Louis Vuitton Inventeur plaque. They are available in two sizes, one ideal for the city and the other for the beach.
The summer sandals and chunky cork wedges in a palette of green or blue, compliment the collection. It also features the essentials of a beach collection, withÂ a sexy two-piece swimsuit, a sequin-embroidered T- shirt and a strapless dress in cotton and silk.
Louis Vuitton’s beach collections have always been a favourite, check out the 2010 Cosmic Blossom Collection.
The Ailleurs Collection will be available in Louis Vuitton stores from April 15th 2011 in the US, not sure about Australia.
