As part of the house’s Pre-Fall 2022 collection, the latest rendition of the Coussin PM, a bag beloved by fashion’s elite style stars and seen on Vuitton aficionados everywhere, sees a sporty and jubilant remix. The reimagined staple takes inspiration from the four world-famous tennis tournaments that are watched by millions and played by the globe’s top athletes (the U.S. Open, U.S. Australia, Rolland-Garros, and Wimbledon).

Reminiscent of the rich colors of the massive courts, played by tennis greats such as Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, and the game-ready equipment and apparel that graces the bodies of the top players, the new crossbody sees an exterior of monogram embossed, puffy lambskin in a vibrant kelly green, paired exquisitely with a chunky white acetate chain-link strap–contrasting strikingly against each other for a pairing that undeniably exudes the tennis aesthetic. With a use of shoulder or crossbody straps for easy carry, the versatile new carryall is perfect for grab-and-go ensembles or even getting lunch with Serena and Venus Williams. Spotlighting one of Ghesquière’s true passions, the ball is certainly in Nicolas’ court as the latest release hones true to the beauty of the sport and the celebrated legends that practice it.
