Worth flying for… Louis Vuitton launches new Saint Placide bag

Louis Vuitton has just unveiled a successor to its discontinued Pallas Chain petite shoulder bag…

The Louis Vuitton Saint Placide Bag is similar to the discontinued Pallas Chain in some obvious ways, reports PurseBlog: it’s a petite shoulder bag with a long chain strap, and the body of the bag is monogram canvas topped by a coloured leather flap, which closes with a golden lock. Their proportions are a bit different – the new Saint Placide is a bit deeper and boxier, giving it more room inside – and the look of the Saint Placide is a bit more modern, but it’s a pretty clear successor in every way.

The interior is colour-matched with the leather top flap, and the gold-tone chain can be doubled for shoulder carry or strung single for cross-body. At a little over 10 inches wide, the bag is big enough for daytime essentials and casual carry, but the gleaming hardware and relative petiteness also make it appropriate for slightly fancier use in the evening. The bag is priced at $2,080 in four different colourways, which is in line with what bags of this type have been going for from the brand in recent seasons. Check out all the colours below.
