It was firstly called the ‘Squire bag’ and then name was changed to “Champs-Elysées”. But only third adopted name “Alma” was a success and used since. “Alma” is named after “Place de L’Alma” the tree lined square in Paris, where the Avenue Montaigne meets the Seine.
Louis Vuitton Alma was inspired by the art deco movement. The bag features bold and architectural lines and still in demand today. It is second to Louis Vuitton Speedy by popularity.
The bag was made with functionality in mind, spacious as the bag opens wide due to the double zip and features two inside compartments. Alma is the perfect work to evening bag.
