The Louis Vuitton Chantilly was first released in 1978 and has remained as a timeless piece from the French Fashion House. The Chantilly embodies Louis Vuitton Matellier’s original vision for his brand, designing products that are not just aesthetically beautiful but also practical. The popularity of vintage bags has increased the demand for the crossbody bag.
The Chantilly was released in 3 different sizes: Louis Vuitton Chantilly PM, Louis Vuitton Chantilly MM, and Louis Vuitton Chantilly GM. The Louis Vuitton Chantilly PM is the smallest from the Chantilly family and the Louis Vuitton Chantilly GM is the largest. Regardless of the size, the Chantilly is the perfect go-to everyday bag, from day to night.
The Louis Vuitton Chantilly Bag has been released in some limited edition collections. For the 40th anniversary, Nicolas Ghesquière updated the Chantilly bag. Though he added some new design elements including a redesigned Louis Vuitton padlock, he kept its signature shape. For Louis Vuitton’s 2012 Cruise Collection, they collaborated with Sofia Coppola and launched the Flore perforated line - this included the classic Louis Vuitton Chantilly. It was Sofia’s way of paying respect to the legacy of Louis Vuitton. Accessorize with this vintage treasure at every music festival, and you will look effortlessly boho-chic.
