Louis Vuitton’s Paint Can bag arrives in Virgil Abloh’s signature purple palette

Virgil Abloh’s lasting legacy to Louis Vuitton continues to impact the world of luxury fashion globally. His imprint and ideals have created a contemporary set of visual cues for the French luxury house, leading to no-frills yet captivating designs such as the Paint Can Bag.

The Louis Vuitton Paint Can Bag was first presented at the Men’s Fall/Winter 2022 show, a posthumous show imbued with Abloh’s touch and vision, combining both current and modern LV signatures. The bag is a playful iteration of the brand’s dominant focus on leather handbag accessories. The Paint Can Bag arrives in a new purple colourway.

The bag follows a realistic style reminiscent of an actual paint can that even features an LV-branded chrome metal handle and a top ring that allows the top to open on a leather hinge. The chrome chain bracelet picks up design notes from Abloh’s signature chain creation. Details including a capitalized “Handle With Care” and “EXTERIOR PAINT” warning, a flammable warning and a note about paint quality are various touches that make the bag more realistic. The LV monogram appears on the purple details of the Paint Can Bag.

The Louis Vuitton Paint Can Bag in “Purple” has officially arrived on line and at local LV boutiques for around US$2,360.
