Louis Vuitton’s Capucines bag on Disney’s Cruella
Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil wears an incredible story, signature hairstyle and, specially designed for this live-action Disney feature film, a Louis Vuitton Capucines handbag.
With Emma Stone’s murderous performance as Cruella, many have been impressed by the fashionable backstory of this dazzling film. Set in the ’70s during the punk rock revolution, an orphan named Estella (before becoming the Cruella we know today) always knew she had an eye and a passion for fashion. With his tangled past and signature black and white hairstyle, the film takes us on an adventure with his two mischievous accomplices as skillful crooks.
We find out that Estelle then landed a personal assistant position for fashion designer, The Baroness (played by Emma Thompson). We won’t resend too many, but if you haven’t had a chance to watch you should.
The costumes for the film were designed by two-time Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beaven, who saw Cruella in daring ensembles ranging from extravagant ball gowns to head-to-toe leather and many other iconic looks to like. One look that has managed to capture our attention is this quintessential ensemble worn by Cruella by slipping on a Louis Vuitton Capucines bag.
Yes, the House has indeed collaborated and designed its signature bag to enhance Cruella’s look. Not only did this leave a touch of class, but a hint of punk-rock elegance well represented with the printed and muted tones and the monochrome feel. The Capucines, classified as a timeless female icon, were the perfect symbol to match Cruella’s identity in the film. Inspired by the location and address of the original Louis Vuitton boutique and workshop, at 4 rue Neuve-des-Capucines, the history of the House begins in 1854.
This is how the Louis Vuitton Capucines handbag is made …
Fun fact: The bag is a leather goods version of the iconic trunks that are the name of the House today. If you take a closer look, six rivets on the metal rings holding the Capucines handle mimic classic Louis Vuitton trunks. The interlaced letters of the LV signature and the petal-shaped flap adorned with a metal Monogram flower, which resembles Louis Vuitton’s mothers favorite lucky charm, a four-leaf clover.
With its history and the significant elements of the bag, it is a moving reflection of the Louis Vuitton woman; sophisticated, feminine and full of character. Just like the elegance and confidence that the bag brings to Cruella as a longtime companion.
