Louis Vuitton has long been the authority on leather goods, which is why, whenever the luxury house introduces a new member to its maroquinerie family, everyone (who is anyone) sits up and takes notice. And its latest treat is well worth the attention.

Named after the Pont Neuf, the oldest existing bridge in Paris located opposite the Maison’s headquarters, the LV Pont 9 shoulder bag is the epitome of effortless gallic chic, and also a symbol of the brand’s ongoing commitment to the highest standards of craftsmanship.

Brought to life in Summer Gold, Bleu Orage, Rose Dahlia, Crème, and Noir padded calfskin, the bag’s structured silhouette is softened by gently rounded edges, while a racer-esque tapered strip of leather runs down the foldover flap, adding a contemporary edge to the otherwise classic design.

The LV Circle logo, a historic motif from the 1930s revived by Nicolas Ghesquière for the 21st century, graces the front and the shoulder strap – a little less “in your face” than the house monogram yet still unmistakably Louis Vuitton.

Thoughtful attention to detail is revealed in hidden features like the monogram flower-inspired magnetic clasp, as well as a gusseted construction that makes the bag more spacious than it might seem.
