Haute LV of the Week


Costa Smeralda, a coastal area in northern Sardinia in Italy is a luxurious tourist destination that is home to exquisite white sand beaches and superb scenery. And with that, Louis Vuitton has named a bag after the said enchanting summer hot spot. Part of the Cruise Galliera line in Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2009 collection, the Galliera Smeralda is made entirely of the luxurious Python leather; from the bag’s body, to the straps and trimmings. And to top off the exotic grandeur, a golden brass Louis Vuitton Inventeur plate acts as an ideal centerpiece. So if you’re looking for a Louis Vuitton bag that is unique, glamorous, and not tattered with logos, Galliera Smeralda might tickle your fancy. It could also make a perfect collector’s piece!

Smeralda is a limited seasonal bag that is only available this season (Cruise/Pre-Spring) in numbered quantity so if you’re interested; you might want to call your local LV store. Galliera Smeralda measures 19.7″x 13.4″x 7.9″, available at Louis Vuitton for $6,800
