The VHS Tape Bag

Portrait of Tammy Strobel

If there was one bag that caught our attention on the SS ’20 runways, this would be it. With nostalgia still going strong, Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere has reimagined one of the ’80s most iconic objects – the VHS cassette tape – and turned it into the collectible item of the season. The limited edition brass and aluminium bag features plexiglass trimmings, complete with a faux tape strip. And it’s practical too: big enough to fit an iPhone 11 Pro Max, and with an adjustable leather strap that lets you wear it multiple ways (on your hand, shoulder or cross-body). $7,900, upon enquiry only, at #B1-38 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands and #01-20 Takashimaya D.S. – ST
