Four of those six colors are available for sale on Louis Vuitton’s website, however for the black and yellow versions, you are going to have to call LV directly, at least for now.It struck me as a small surprise to discover a few months ago that the Louis Vuitton Pallas Chain Bag has been discontinued. Also, the Pallas tote wasn’t going anywhere, so why leave the shoulder bag version? When the Louis Vuitton Saint Placide Bag showed about the brand’s site last week, I eventually had a fair theory: a better successor was on the way.The Louis Vuitton Saint Placide Bag is similar to this Pallas Chain in some obvious ways: it is a petite shoulder bag with a long chain strap, and the body of the bag is monogram canvas topped with a colored leather flap, which closes with a golden lock. Their proportions are a bit different–the newest Saint Placide is a bit deeper and more boxier, giving it more room inside–and the expression of the Saint Placide is a bit more contemporary, but it’s a fairly clear successor whatsoever. The inside is color-matched using the leather top flap, and the gold-tone chain could be doubled for shoulder carry or strung single for crossbody. In a bit over 10 inches wide, the bag is large enough for daytime essentials and casual carry, but the glistening hardware and comparative petiteness also ensure it is suitable for slightly fancier use in the day. The bag is priced at $2,080 in four different colorways, which will be in line with what bags of this sort are going for from the brand in recent seasons.
