Practicality meets fun. The St. Jacques tote (this one in blue epi leather) is lightweight and zips to close, keeping your daily essentials safe and within reach.  

Details:  Excellent vintage condition with only minor signs of wear from gentle use. Date of production: 1994.  

Measurements: Approximately 9.9 inches at widest point; 9.4 inches high and 3.9 inches deep.  Handle drop is approximately 5.1 inches. 

Behind the Brand:  Founded in 1854, Louis Vuitton Malletier is the French fashion house known around the world.  The first Louis Vuitton piece was the flat-surface trunk, designed by Mr. Vuitton himself as a practical alternative to heavier, round-top trunks.  Unlike other models, the Vuitton trunk could be conveniently stacked for travel.  Today, the Louis Vuitton brand encompasses a wide range of luxury products, including luggage, handbags, and ready-to-wear.  The brand is poised to maintain its status as a high fashion leader and innovator:  In November 2013, Louis Vuitton announced Nicolas Ghesquiere (formerly of Balenciaga) as the company's new artistic director for women's collections.

Trivia: Vuitton introduced epi leather in the mid-1980s. The St. Jacques is both a practical everyday bag and a piece of fashion history -- the company no longer produces this bag.
