A lot of the recent Louis Vuitton models have plaques, a bag made entirely of gloden plaques even appeared on the most recent runway show. The new hampstead, Beverly, Cloud bags and riveting all have this feature in common, whether the plaque is golden or ecru. What do you think of bags with plates like that? I think sometimes it appears a bit inneccessary and crowded, especially when the bag itself is monogrammed or otherwise heavily patterened. I think the plates works best on antigua. Honestly I think it looks a bit too much on the hampstead, but it fits better on the beverly. In general I don't really like these plates.
