I was thinking to myself, what is the most versatile luxury piece that I own?
What addition to my collection could get me the best bang for my buck?
This is a really hard question to answer, mainly because the market is so saturated and it’s hard to tell you ONE single handbag to choose, because your own personal preferences vary.
That got me thinking, maybe the best piece you could get is not a SLG (small leather good), a purse or a travel accessory, maybe it fits into ALL of these categories!
That’s why today let’s explore the wonderful world of Louis Vuitton Toiletry bags, here is everything that you need to know!
- $415-$510 CAD
- EPI Leather (Toiletry 26 only)
- Several discontinued Limited Edition Prints in the Toiletry 26
- Toiletry 15: 15cm Length x 10cm Height x 4.5cm Width
- Toiletry 19: 19cm Length x 15cm Height x 6.0cm Width
- Toiletry 26: 26cm Length x 20cm Height x 5.0cm Width
All of the toiletry bags come with a beautiful canvas Monogram finish.
They all feature a golden brass zip closure with a leather tab. The zipper extends beyond the bag to make it easy to reach inside to grab the items that you need.
What makes these a perfect, versatile piece is that they all feature a washable lining-so you can put anything inside of it and gusset sides, so you don’t have to worry about overstuffing and losing it’s shape.
First off, I don’t own this piece. I may someday, but right now it doesn’t fit into my personal collection.
This is the smallest of the toiletry sizes, and I don’t find it to be as super versatile as some of the bigger pieces in this trio. However, depending on your own style and the size of the handbags that you carry with you, it might fit in.
I could really see that this bag would be perfect for
- Earbuds, charging cables, tech accessories
- Additional rewards cards or small SLGs that are holding extra rarely used items
- Some small makeup, lipsticks, powder etc.
This was my most recent acquisition from Louis Vuitton, and I wasn’t sure if I REALLY wanted it, but I am so happy that I picked it up!
This is the “middle” size of the Toiletry collection, and I find it the perfect size! I could store makeup in it but I find that I only ever have a lipstick in my purse, so I don’t need a big bag for it.
What I really love to use this for, is for everything else outside of my wallet. This might include, hand cream, my passport, additional cards, my car keys, receipts, etc.
You might be thinking, why do you need a bag specifically for that? Well it is simple, so that I can switch up my handbags more often! With using the Toiletry 19 as my “everything else” bag in my purse, if I want to switch to another purse, I grab my wallet, 6-ring key holder and my Toiletry 19 to move to the other purse. I can switch them daily if I want to! When I use this system, anything else outside of these 3 items is more than likely garbage floating in my purse (we all do it).
The Toiletry 19 fits P-E-R-F-E-C-T into a Pochette Metis (middle compartment, Neverfull, Speedy, etc. So many different options of bags that it will fit into!
I have this Toiletry 26 in Jungle Palms (discontinued limited edition) and I love the design of it. The pinks and reds of this design are perfection. I do warn you, if you purchase a limited edition print like this, you can (ok, you will) have some wear on the corners of the design and have to be aware of what could rub on it. It doesn’t bother me, but something to be aware of.
I have used this for travelling and putting my toiletries in it (which it was designed for). What I really love when travelling is that I unpack my toiletries and then can use this as a clutch for a night out. It’s fancy but not too fancy and you can loop a strap through it to make it an over the shoulder or crossbody (I loop my strap from my LV Favourite into itself for this).
I love that the interior is wipeable, so I don’t have to have a panic attack if something spilled inside of it as well.
Overall, this is my favourite piece of this trio but not my most overused.
Overall, you can use these bags in a variety of different ways to suit your lifestyle.
I personally love that these are sold as “travel accessories” but you can use them for travel, SLGs (everyday life), or as a clutch.
What really is the icing on the cake? These are perfect for starting out your collection, or for getting a present for someone as their first LV.
Hope you enjoyed! Let me know if you have any of the Toiletry bags and what you like to use them for?
