1  Louis Vuitton Boxing Bag KNOCKOFF (image heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Kikux on: August 08, 2006 01:22:03 AM
I was on the internet scavenging for a boxing bag (I live in Hong Kong, and everybody seems to have one here) and I came across the Louis Vuitton Randonn bag. I liked the bag for its shape and design, and not for the ubiquitous LV/ checkered monogram. So I thought I would give it a shot at making the same bag sans monogram.

Heres the original bag:                                                                                               

And here is the bag I made:

Even though they're not completely the same, I think that I did a good job at duplicating the shape of the bag considering that this is only the second bag that I've made. (don't even ask what became of my first bag) I must admit thatI messed up the strap and the stitching as a whole, but as long at it doesn't fall apart in the next month I'm fine with it.

The whole bag was made with PVC fabric with the exception of the lining. The White and black parts were 'crocodile skin' (for some reason, I've become with croc skin(, the silver part is PVC that resembles patent leather, and the blue strap was supposed to be a tiffany blue color but the white of the bag made it seem much darker that it really is.

There is also a detachable pouch inside the bag.

The pouch is attatched with snap fasteners.

The bag's bottom is oval, so it lies on the back more comfortably.

And a final top view. I couldn't find a top view of the original bag.

Please tell me what you think! Thanks!  Grin

I made a slight variation by ditching the strap altogether. I used some scrap green vinyl I had and managed to find some pvc snakeskin for the corners and the top of the bag. I went a little bit sewing machine crazy when I was stitching the snakeskin on. The yellow and white stripes are just ribbons sewn on.
