Patina: Vintage Vuitton

PATINAnoun\pə-ˈtē-nə, ˈpa-tə-nə\ (as defined by

   : a surface appearance of something grown beautiful especially with age or use

  : an appearance or aura that is derived from association, habit, or established character

Nothing link the luxe patination that has enveloped this classic Randonnee canvas tote from Louis Vuitton. This bag is over 10 years old, but it's best years lie in the distant future. 

I personally have a predisposition to vintage luggage, art, leather, cars, furniture, and the list goes on. For one, the just don't make things how they used to; secondly, when I find a vintage piece the patination inspires me to fabricate a mental fable that shares the journey of the said item. For me this is the essence of the notion that "life is good, but living is better!"
