The Louis Vuitton Epi Alma bag, shown top in carmine and citron, starts at R12 900.

Louis Vuitton’s first coloured leather range, Epi, known for its striated appearance, has received an injection of vivid colour.

Epi consists of handbags, small leather goods, luggage and travel accessories in traditional shapes.

In stores this month, the Alma handbag and small leather goods dazzle in a dozen new hues – from yellow and orange, fuchsia and red to purple and mint green. More classic shades are ivory, grey, brown and black.

Coming in June are shoulder bags and small leather goods in great colour combinations and October sees the launch of the Noé handbag in the new two- and three-tone combinations.

Louis Vuitton has a store at Sandton City, which is open seven days a week. Call 011 784 9854.
