Is it just me or are heart-shaped goodies really taking over our world? Every year we are bombarded by hearts of all shapes and sizes as the Valentine’s Day madness takes over. This year is no different. Everyone from Louis Vuitton to Damien Hirst has made the ubiquitous heart their inspiration for the Valentine’s season.
The latest offering from Louis Vuitton will, in fact, have the ladies drooling. The piece in question is a heart-shaped coin purse. The name itself is self-explanatory. Heart Coin Purse Bijoux is the name that Louis Vuitton’s designers have zeroed in on for this dazzling little trinket.
This classy coin purse is made from Monogram Vernis leather. This has been adorned with handmade precious stones from Swarovski. Look close and you will spy golden Louis Vuitton signatures sparkling through the stones. The golden zipper and chain add further shimmer to this high-on-bling creation.
This Louis Vuitton creation is sure to catch the eye even in the midst of a surfeit of heart-shaped goodies. Along with Steuben’s ‘Key To My Heart’, this Louis Vuitton creation is one of my favourite Valentine’s Day gift ideas this year.
The Heart Coin Purse Bijoux is available in a single colour: Rouge Fauviste. To me, that translates into a red wine colour. This Louis Vuitton coin purse measures 4.1 inches by 3.3 inches. As for the price? Stores within the United States are retailing this for $925. I agree that it is a little ostentatious. Then again, what is the point of Valentine’s Day without a touch of extravagance?
