Walking Tall: Inside Louis Vuitton’s shoe factory
So you can imagine our excitement when we learned that for the first time, the iconic French brand released a collection of Neverfull totes in a dazzling array of colored Epi leather. Now, you may be asking what’s so hot about Epi leather, especially since it’s ribbed and structured rather than soft and supple. That raised texture means that it can withstand a beating (read: this bag knows how much it’s going to be used, and it’s ready to last a lifetime).

We love the idea of the blue for Summer perfectly paired with a white sundress but if you’re looking to get a little more mileage out of your bag, we could totally see carrying the purple or red Neverfull straight into Fall.

It is not uncommon for the shoes to be still coming off the production line, being polished and burnished by Paola’s team until they are perfect, the afternoon before the show. It has been known for private jets to carry shoes to Paris.
