Modelled on 1920s makeup boxes, the leather case boasts an Art Deco design and a lock inspired by historic Louis Vuitton trunks, engraved with an LV Circle logo.
It comes in two colourways – chocolate and light tan – and is spacious enough to hold not one but two lipstick bullets with a handy inbuilt mirror.
