Nautical inspired accessories: Louis Vuitton America’s Cup collection celebrates the America’s Cup in Bermuda
Sporty and fit for sailing, Louis Vuitton presents its annual collection for the America’s Cup filled with themed items
The 35th America’s Cup is set to take place in Bermuda this June. As the yachting equivalent of the Formula 1 Grand Prix, the America’s Cup is setting sail with the top yacht teams, each competing for the title. In line with the event and the coming of spring, partner Louis Vuitton has unveiled a luxury lifestyle collection for men. Chock full of leather goods, eyewear, shoes and accessories— all inspired by and featuring nautical elements — the collection brings forth stellar options that fit like a glove for a day of boating.
These charms are delightfully nautical themed, with designs ranging from cute to chic. Choose from either a swimming sea turtle as a companion or a more practical torchlight. The charms double as a key holder suitable for those who do not want the hassle of carrying a bag.
2. Dockside Bracelet
The collection also boasts a few wrist candy choices that continue to be influenced by nautical motifs. Reminiscent of boating ropes, the bracelet is helmed by a thick band in the ever elegant colour of white and navy. The bracelet is enamelled with V Gaston logos well as a Louis Vuitton signature on the clasp. Closed with a brass clasp, the playful and easy to wear bracelet is sure to be a hit with sailing enthusiasts.
3. Leather Bags
A collection cannot be complete without Louis Vuitton’s signature leather goods. Sporty and sleek, the leather goods in this collection come in a variety of sizes. The bags sport a Damier Cobalt coated canvas along with cowhide leather trim. Not to mention, these pieces also come stamped with the iconic “V Gaston” Logo, a Louis Vuitton signature since 1901. Alongside the haversacks, there is also Keepall 45 Bandoulière. This collectible edition of the Keepall 45 is designed specially for the America’s Cup 2017, making it surely a must-have piece for collectors.
The collection will be available in selected Louis Vuitton stores worldwide from March 2017 onwards. In Singapore, the collection will be stocked at Louis Vuitton Island Maison at Marina Bay Sands, Ngee Ann City and ION Orchard.
