The model line that represents Louis Vuitton, "Epi", has a long history that has been loved by many people since its release.
In this article, we will explain in detail about the Louis Vuitton epis, such as the characteristics of the materials and the origin of the names.
In the latter half, we will introduce the popular lineup of epis, so if you are considering purchasing epis, please refer to it.

What is Louis Vuitton "Epi" that attracts cool women

Epi is one of the model lines representing Louis Vuitton. When it comes to Louis Vuitton, monograms and Damier are often thought to be popular, but Epi appeared in 1985 and has been popular with many people to this day.

From the fact that Epiline items have been on the market for about 35 years, you can see that it is one of the model lines representing Louis Vuitton. Let's take a closer look at such epis such as the origin of the name and the characteristics of the material.

Origin of the name "epi"

"Epi" means "ear of wheat" in French. The name "epi" was named "epi" because the fine impression that flows linearly reminds us of a landscape where wheat ears are swaying in the wind.

Material characteristics

A high-quality material called "grain leather" is used for the epi. Grain leather is so-called genuine leather and is characterized by its excellent durability. It is also used in dress shoes in the United States, and is said to have a life span of about 40 years.

Of course, the epi made from such grain leather has excellent durability, so it can be said that it can be used for a long time.
In addition, fine embossing makes wrinkles less noticeable and keeps the beautiful texture forever.
One of the characteristics of this material is that the gloss and color change depending on how the light hits.
One of the reasons for the simple yet timeless design is that the appearance changes with the way the light hits.

The design is also characterized by the embossing of the wheat ears that flutter in the wind.
It's not as flashy as Monogram or Damier, but it has a sophisticated design with no waste and gives an adult-like impression.

A variety of color variations of the epi

Epi is attractive for its calm and simple embossing, but another appeal is its abundant color variations.
Initially released, there were 5 colors: black, brown, green, blue and beige, but as the years went by, new colors were developed, and 11 colors were announced in 2012 and 8 colors were announced in 2014.

Some of the colors are out of print, but we continue to develop a wide variety of colors in line with the changes of the times.

The standard colors are black "Noir" which gives a calm and mature impression, "Passionate red" "Cocrico" and pastel pink "Magnolia" which gives a feminine feminine impression.
