Louis Vuitton Petite Boite Chapeau Black
With its pedigree as the ultimate feminine travel accessory, the hatbox has been reimagined for the modern era as a day-to-evening bag. Inspired by Georges Vuitton’s patented chauffeur bag from 1905, designed to hold both a spare tire in the outer compartment and daily necessities in the inner one, Louis Vuitton’s first models of round, hard-sided trunks designed especially to protect hats date back to the early 1920s.
Small yet practical thanks to its distinctive shape, the Petite Boîte Chapeau is a covetable design made even more desirable in precious brilliant crocodile leather.
First introduced on the Cruise 2018 runway, the now-iconic Petite Boîte Chapeau is Nicolas Ghesquière’s reinterpretation of a bold historic shape. At once structured and feminine, the hard-sided handbag embodied both Louis Vuitton’s travel DNA while quickly becoming a modern must-have. Whether carried as a clutch or worn with the shoulder strap, the Petite Boîte Chapeau adds a stylish, elegant touch to any ensemble.
