Louis Vuitton’s Chalk Bag is All the Rage

While the majority of us were marveling Alex Honnold's ropeless ascent in Free Solo, Louis Vuitton's lead designer was having a creative breakthrough. I can picture their initial reaction, "that tiny yellow bag on his back is GENIUS!" Jokes aside, the outdoors are definitely in for 2019. Flannels, puffy vests, cut off jeans—I bet I just described the last person you saw at Whole Foods. So, it makes sense that Louis Vuitton wants to be in on the trend, and for a mere $1,590, this chalk bag could be yours.

The “supple” bag “inspired by climbers” can be worn across the body or on the shoulder. It’s even accentuated with a “functional” carabiner. Oh, you actually want to wear this as a real chalk bag? Um, you might need to chat with customer service about that. 

But honestly Louis Vuitton, if you’re going to foray into the climbing world you’ve got to commit 100%. Let’s see a pair of climbing shoes and a crash pad while you’re at it. Skiers, are you getting jealous? Don't worry they've got something for you too
