marie claire’s fashion editor Monica Russell has the kind of style that turns heads and steals hearts – so when she discovers a new It-buy, we’re immediately on board. Her latest find? The ‘Petite Boite Chapeau’, a sweet Louis Vuitton handbag inspired by the house’s iconic hat boxes.
The piece stars in the first instalment of our new series, The Drop, a weekly must-watch video where marie claire’s style experts reveal the just-released, lust-have item you need to know about.
This black leather number, splashed with bright blossoms, made the cut not only for its sweet print and petite dimensions, but also because it’s perfectly practical – big enough to fit a phone and the other key essentials. A shoulder strap means you can go hands-free during the day, while by night, it can be toted by an on-trend top-handle.
“My favourite thing about this bag is its delicate floral print, it’s feminine and very chic,” says Monica, noting that the piece’s lifespan will extend far past spring. “It’s a bag that can be enjoyed season after season with multiple outfits.”
