Louis Vuitton Monogram World Tour
On his many travels, Gaston-Louis Vuitton used to collect hotel and airline stickers, and always took a fascination to the labels on luggages and trunks he saw, as he felt it was telling of the owner and the adventures they had been on. It was this spirit of wanderlust that was the main inspiration behind the new Louis Vuitton Monogram World Tour Collection.
Creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere has transposed this tradition of travel stickers on the classic Louis Vuitton Monogram icons, from its classic city bag Speedy to the LV55 watch and the Pégase suitcase. The stickers feature dynamic cosmopolitan cities like Tokyo, Paris and Milan, or paintings from the Hyper Realistic Movement. This collection is a fun, playful take on the classic Monogram series and a great way to pay homage to the design house’s long-standing association with travel. Head up to our gallery to check out the new collection up close!

You’ve already seen the first few pieces from this collection, now see the rest from Louis Vuitton’s Monogram World Tour collection. Yes, that’s the official name of this festive range of bags and SLGs, inspired by founder Gaston Louis Vuitton’s love of hotel and airline stickers which he collected whilst on his own travels. You’ll be familiar with the bags and SLGs too, all icons in their own right that Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière has chosen for this animated and fun line that’s just perfect for Christmas.
Now comes the next most important question. How much? Well, I’ve got all the prices here for you, so all you really need to do is to decide if the recipient has been naughty, or nice. And if anyone’s been wondering, I’ve been really nice all year. So there.
First up (from left to right), we’ve got the Monogram World Tour Zippy Wallet (SGD1230), then the Monogram World Tour Pochette Felicie(SGD1430) that actually comes with 2 extra SLGs on the inside that can be used together or separate from the bag, one a zip pouch, another a flat pocket card case that comes with 8 credit card slots. Last but not least, there’s the Monogram World Tour Sarah Wallet (SGD1100), which happens to be a favourite amongst many, by the way.
