The Alma quickly became a favourite with Parisians, and eventually went on to become the handbag of choice for many stylish women all over the world. This bag has a prim and proper shape at first glance, but far from being girlish in style, its geometric yet artistic look was actually inspired by the Art Deco movement. This quickly becomes apparent as the Alma's silhouette is set off to perfection not with the more staid neutral materials such as the Monogram Canvas or the Damier, but with the high-shine Vernis, the vivid, textured Epi, or even the brassy, metallic Miroir.

The Alma is a gorgeous bag that is sure to get a woman noticed, but its charm lies in its practicality as much as in its looks. The Alma is the ultimate city bag for the sophisticated woman. It comes with a convenient double-zipper opening that can be secured with a padlock for added safety. Its top-handle style allows it to be carried in the hand or in the crook of a woman's elbow, and some later versions even come with a bandolier strap. The Alma also has four metal studs on the bottom to better protect the bag's underside.

As a testament to this bag's enduring charm, the Louis Vuitton Alma is part of LV's latest collection of miniature bags. These mini versions of the Speedy, Monceau, and of course the Alma are scaled-down versions of the classics.
