Unfortunately, when it comes to midseason collections, most designers don’t see fit to throw accessory-lovers a photographic bone. Because the shows aren’t held together with any type of unifying event, brands release their own media images instead of allowing outside photographers, and outside photographers almost always do a better job of showing us the bags and shoes. We end up getting the short shrift when all media outlets are given the same photo set.
Because Louis Vuitton is a company founded on leather goods, though, it does a better job than most at making sure that its bags are front and center. We have all of the bags from Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Fall 2011 collection, plus two ornate feather fans that probably aren’t bags but I will continue hope might be until expressly told otherwise. (Please, Louis Vuitton, let them be bags.) Full photos, after the jump.
