Meet the LV Pont 9: Louis Vuitton’s Key Bag of 2020 Launches in Singapore Today
A classic keep-forever shoulder heirloom bag. Smooth, slightly padded calfskin. A contemporary structured shape with rounded edges. And that hardware: the Louis Vuitton Circle, Nicolas Ghesquière’s modernised take on an archive logo from the 1930s—is used as a clasp on the flap and again on the strap. Discover a hidden surprise: the novel Monogram floral magnetic closure will evoke a smile.
Meet the new LV Pont 9 shoulder bag, which marks the first release of Vuitton’s LV Pont 9 leather line, drops in the brand’s Singapore webstore today.
If you’re missing Paris, this bag will feed your wanderlust. Named after the city’s most celebrated bridge, the Pont Neuf—which means “new bridge”, on the contrary, is its oldest existing bridge. It was constructed in 1578, stretches across the Seine River and comprises 12 arches.

Today, the Pont Neuf bridge sits across the Louis Vuitton headquarters in Paris, and it would be hard not to be inspired by this iconic landmark.
Take your pick: which colour will you fancy on the LV Pont 9?
There is the classic noir shade, ready to be your little black bag. Or perhaps in a creme hue, reminiscent of the bridge itself.
There is also Summer Gold, a vibrant hue that reminds one of sunset, while Rose Dahlia is feminine alongside Blue Orage’s dreaminess. Which will be your favourite for future dates?
The LV Pont 9 shoulder bag is available on the Louis Vuitton Webstore or through the Client Services hotline 6788 3888.
