Along with the Totally Monogram tote, Louis Vuitton has also come out with the Irene on Jun 6th this year. It was first shown in LV's Pre-Fall'09 collection back in January and can now be found under "New Arrivals" of the online Louis Vuitton store. You know the bag is a hit because it is out of stock online and replicas are already available all over the internet (Yes, perhaps even before the real one was released).
There is a number of details I love about this bag. The little rectangular pieces that hold the straps are very cute, and the straps themselves are bigger than what you would find on the Neverful bag, which means that it would be more comfortable resting on your shoulder. The drawstrings on the bag gives what would have been a bucket a much more interesting cinched shape. All in all, the bag should look good on almost anyone. My favorite is the Irene Coco (because I'm into gray bags). What about you?
Here's a really cute Youtube video of the Louis Vuitton window display at Fifth Avenue, NYC. You simply gotta chuckle.
