I’m loving the Louis Vuitton African Queen bag from the LV Spring/Summer 2009 collection (updated version of the Monogram Limelight from the Fall/Winter 2007 collection). I have a feeling that the gold will make it “love it or hate it,” but I think the metallic color mixed with the colorful tassels gives it a playful, tribal touch. The bag has a fun youthful vibe, plus the black twisted drawstring closure is quite original. I’m not too fond of how it looks against Miranda Kerr’s dress, but I think it would be to die with a conservative black suit or classic LBD. What do you think? Snob or Slob?
The Louis Vuitton African Queen comes in two colors, Gold and Bronze, for $1,530.
