Louis Vuitton's Paint Can Bag


Louis Vuitton‘s Paint Can Bag is reserved only for the bold-hearted statement-makers — and it’s definitely worth a double take. Previously available in “Purple,” “Red” and “Orange,” the wildly imaginative accessory has been updated with a fresh slate of colorways inspired by the late Virgil Abloh‘s signature palette.

Now finished in “Lagoon,” “Green” and “Yellow,” the artful (and very realistic) accessory is a collectible for the fashion-minded creative, complete with a chrome LV-embossed metal handle and a ring top that flips open thanks to a leather hinge. The exterior plays with true-to-life paint-can branding, emblazoning “EXTERIOR PAINT” lettering front-and-center, providing information about the paint’s quality under the handle and warning its wearer to “Handle With Care” on its back. Notes of realism make their way inside the Paint Can, too, with microfiber lining the entire cylindrical case in each bag’s respective colorway.

The world first met Louis Vuitton’s Paint Can Bag during the Maison’s monumental Men’s Fall/Winter 2022 runway show, which honored Abloh’s unequivocal influence on the House’s DNA with then-and-now references to eight seasons of his game-changing work. The omnipresent visionary often toyed with the French label’s classic leather goods, offering abstract, avant-garde takes on legacy silhouettes — and the Paint Can Bag is a light-hearted nod to his tongue-in-cheek approach to design.

The Louis Vuitton Paint Can Bag is now available in “Lagoon,” “Green” and “Yellow” on the brand’s website and at local LV boutique stores for $2,850 USD. Take a look at the new finishes above.
