Bold is a statement that should be your signature style. After all, if you have it, why not talk about it? Better still, let your handbag do the talk-ing for you. The bold black-and-white Coussin PM handbag from Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2022 collection is more than just arm candy. The monogram print on the embossed puffy lambskin is perfectly complemented by the matte-black hardware and bright-red resin chain. The chain enables you to sling it across your shoulder, while a wide textile strap allows both shoulder and cross-body wear. Versatile and voluminous, the bag is soft like a cushion, making it as body-friendly it is beautiful. True style never shouts.

Price ₹2.83 lakh; Availability Brand stores
