Vintage, circa 1998. The name of this vintage Epi bag was taken from the 4 Rue Neuve-des-Capucines in Paris where the founder, Louis Vuitton opened his first shop.

Can be carried as a sling shoulder bag or crossbody bag, the Epi Capucines is functional and versatile for everyday. Its boxy structure gives the design a vintage flair, completed but a clasp with round turn lock.

With the flexible accordion folds on the sides, the Epi Capucines is flat and compact when you have less items inside, but it can be expanded to a bigger capacity when you need it.

The bag’s interior is fully lined with leather, separated into 2 compartments for easy organisation and firm overall structure.

LV’s 1990s vintage Epi leather bags are known and loved by many for their sturdy structure, outstanding durability and classic design. You would be surprised that vintage Epi leather holds up even better than the classic Monogram canvas, thanks to the deep-dye tanning process.

The colour – we just adore this Toledo colour, a medium shade of blue named after the ancient city in Spain.

Fascinatingly, the colours from the 1990s vintage Epi collection were named after some travel destinations (Borneo, Toledo, Kenyan, Winnipeg, Castilian, Tassili, Cipango) to honour the travel heritage of LV.
