Vintage, circa 1996. 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 shell-shaped Alma Bag is one of the classic models of LV, inspired by Art Deco style and first debuted in 1934. Without much accessories, the 1990s-version Alma bag is very light in weight and minimalist elegant in style.
It can be carried gracefully in hand or the crook of arm by its top handles
The colour – named “Castilian Red” by LV, this grand regel red is reminiscent of the flag of Kingdom of Castile (historical region 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.
