Alicia Vikander Stars in Louis Vuitton’s 2017 Cruise Campaign

Louis Vuitton’s latest Cruise campaign will give you all the travel inspo you need. Starring Alicia Vikander, the campaign was shot in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil by famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier, and features strong pops of color and the classic designs the fashion house is known for.

The Oscar winner shows off two of the new handbags in the collection—the emblematic Twist and Capucine. In one snap, Vikander gives a sultry gaze to the camera, as she walks amongst palm trees in a black-and-white top and a belted navy-and-black skirt. An embroidered black handbag is on her arm, complete with red and white stitching and the signature silver LV twistable emblem.

She wears a white crop top and high-waisted white shorts, and makes a statement with the bold, color-blocked Twist bag on her arm, which also has the silver LV twistable emblem.

The campaign follows the brand’s epic 2017 Cruise presentation, which took place in the Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum.

7 Snacks Fashion Girls Eat (and the Clutches to Carry Them In)

Yes, fashion girls eat. And no, it’s not just lettuce or carrots. Or, I don’t know, some vegetable-fruit-hybrid juice (isn’t drinking a meal a form of eating?). But during New York Fashion Week—or any of the weeks that make up Fashion Month—we can’t even do that, because there’s just no time for food when there are fashion shows to attend, celebrities to greet (slash, casually ignore), and street-style photographers to pretend to hurry past.

But in all seriousness, when you’re on your eighth show of the day and it’s only 2 p.m., the only thing that will save you from fading is a snack—a chic one, of course. And most importantly, one that you can conveniently stow in your teeny-tiny clutch and sneak a bite between shows.

You’re probably wondering: What are chic snacks? Well, keep reading to find out, along with the clutches to house them.

The Designer Diaper Bag You’ll Want to Carry Even If You Don’t Have a Baby

When Nasiba Adilova and Miroslava Duma launched The Tot two years ago, they did so with the intent to solve issues and address concerns that affect mothers everywhere through smart editorial and a curated inventory of tried-and-tested products. One of those issues? The absence of a chic diaper bag on the market. They took matters into their hands and teamed up with designer (and fashion industry darling) Mary Katrantzou to launch what they consider the dream diaper bag. It boasts all the elements of a luxury designer tote, but with the added benefit of being incredibly versatile, with practical compartments designed to hold everything, from diapers to binkies.

“When I was pregnant, there were many beautiful choices for a diaper bag, but none of them would fit everything I needed,” Adilova explains. “I wanted a simple bag, like Louis Vuitton or Goyard; basically, a fashionable tote for fashionable moms that didn’t look like a diaper bag.”

The bag underwent three redesigns until it met their criteria—a wider, roomier shape (to hold a lot more stuff), an additional longer strap (that you can hang on every kind of stroller), a more durable, water-resistant leather (the inside lining is water-resistant as well), a bigger zipper (to help you zip, even if the bag is stuffed to the brim), and a larger waterproof changing pad (that you can unclip from inside the bag). As for the print, Adilova and Duma went through Katrantzou’s design archives and selected two styles: a Mongolian stamp from her collection, where she replaced the original text with “The Tot,” and a white horse (that they call a unicorn in-house).

With a $1,700 price tag, the diaper bag isn’t cheap. But Adilova insists that it’s not expensive, either. In fact, she says Katrantzou had wanted to mark it up even higher. And compared with other high-end diaper bags (made out of nylon, FYI), which start at $2,000, this one is considered to be on the affordable end of the designer bag spectrum. “Yes, you can find very cheap diaper bags, but they don’t look like fashion bags. They’re not very well made, you’ll use it only for a couple of years, and you’ll probably throw it away,” she says. “The great thing about this one is that it makes a really great travel bag after. This one will last you forever.”

And only a week after its launch, they’ve already been receiving positive feedback. “The result is fantastic,” Adilova says. “People have bought it, written to us to say there’s nothing else like it on the market. They love it.”

Only 180 of the limited-edition Mary Katrantzou diaper bags were made, so head to thetot.com to grab one for yourself—even if you don’t have a child.
