ICONIC LOUIS VUITTON GO-14 BAG MAKES A COMEBACK
Louis Vuitton presents its new GO-14 bag, a reinvention of one of Nicolas Ghesquière’s first iconic designs.
The nexus of entwined passions: a designer’s inspiration, a trunk-maker’s secret, an artisan’s ingenuity… The GO-14 is both a commencement and a culmination. It is an initiatory bag, one of Nicolas Ghesquière’s first designs, which first appeared on the runway of his debut as Women’s Artistic Director at Louis Vuitton in October 2014.
This iconic bag is re-emerging in 2023, in full spirit with a unique characteristic: malletage. The malletage brings in the spirit of historical trunk-making as this refined crisscrossing pattern pads the insides of trunks. As a versatile handbag, the GO-14 can be worn in many different ways to match every woman’s mood: crossbody or on the shoulder with its new jewel chain as supple as a gold necklace; on the arm or handheld, as the chain can also be doubled thanks to a brand new groove system. Furthermore, a handle reaffirms the bag’s position as a classic.
Today, the Go-14 is a sensual padded lambskin bag. It is covered in a bouncy, infinitely soft malletage with overstitching highlighting the design’s curves and cushiony feel. It comes in every shade, from the starkest black and white to the diluted, nuanced, toasted shades.
