Last week you discovered what bags Louis Vuitton had to offer as far as their new Monogram Eclipse bags were concerned, which included everything from iconic classics to new styles given the Black/Greytreatment, which have been a hit since the day they launched. Today we turn our attention to the essentials we will use most every day, the small leather goods (or SLGs) that are as handsome as it gets when it comes to the vast array available now from this collection.
First up, a pair of the larger SLGs (shown above) that are big for a good reason. On the left, we’ve got the Pochette Voyage MM (SGD960), a 26 cm by 20 cm zip clutch that’s trimmed with cowhide leather on the top. Small as it might sound, it’s actually pretty roomy, and you can fit a lot in, wallet, mobile charger, keys, mints and then some.
On the right is the Zippy XL Wallet, for those who have too much to carry around on any given day, or (and more seriously), the perfect travel wallet. What’s on the inside? Well, for starters, 16 credit card slots, 3 gusseted compartments and 2 flat compartments for cash and receipts. Then there’s the extra large coin compartment, and even a pocket on the inside that will fit most smartphones, which is always a bonus. And when it’s priced at SGD1710, you really can’t argue with that, especially when it comes with so much on the inside.

Next we’ve got the 4 more SLGs that are truly everyday essentials. From the iPad Cover Box (SGD1710) that keeps your iPad safe along with 12 credit slots on the inside, it’s like the perfect mini workbag on the go, assuming of course you’re one who works extensively on the go.
Classics in their own right, here are the 3 wallets (from the left to right) that no man I know will not mind owning, from the Pocket Organiser (SGD455) to the Multiple Wallet (SGD670) and of course, theBrazza Wallet (SGD830). One’s a card case (with a flap), the other’s your standard classic billfold and lastly, the long wallet for those who believe in more is more.

And to round up the collection, here are some accompanying pieces you could consider if you’re all about the matchy-matchy when it comes to the things you own. From your standard keychain (SGD455) that you could attached your car (or house) keys to, to the 16 cm by 11 cm Box Clutch (SGD1350) that’s sort of your tiny wallet on the go (think lunch bag, but for boys), complete with credit card slots and flat pockets for cash.
Then there’s the Ribbon Cardholder Box and the Ribbon Cardholder, which I think will be extremely useful for those who work in corporate environments that require keycard access from point to point. Priced from SGD505, you can pick them all out now at Louis Vuitton boutiques across Singapore.

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.

Next we’ve got the ‘big guns’, starting with the Monogram World Tour Speedy30 Bandouliere (SGD2330), the Monogram World Tour Neverfull MM(SGD2110) which incidentally comes with a black trim (very Monogram Macassar, if you ask me), with the Monogram World Tour Alma BB(SGD2010) rounding up the montage.

Finally, another look at some of the icons given the Monogram World Tourtreatment, because everything looks better on pink, right? Besides the 6 I’ve just featured, other bags that you’ll find ‘stickered’ include theKeepall50 Bandouliere (SGD3100) with vachetta or black trim, the Toiletry Pouch26 (SGD645), the Nano Speedy (SGD1510), as well as other accessories like scarves and key rings to complete the look.
Louis Vuitton has once again featured funky stickers on their iconic handbags for their Fall/Winter 2016 Collection. The World Tour Stickers presents a variety of patches like Louis Vuitton logo, cars, and flamingos. These stickers can be seen on Louis Vuitton’s famous handbags. These includes City Streamer in Veau Satin leather, Speedy, Petite Malle and Twist in Epi Leather, all in black color. It will also be available in Monogram Canvas bags including Speedy, Alma, Neverfull, Petite Malle, Palm Springs Mini Backpack as well as Travel bags and Small Leather Goods.Louis Vuitton
Widely reported online with the same fervour as the coming of the apocalypse was news that broke on WWD that Louis Vuitton was discontinuing theMonogram Multicolore collection, one of the last vestiges of the previous creative director Marc Jacobs that came about as part of a collaboration with celebrated artist Takashi Murakami.
Available in two colours (or rather, two different base colours decorated with Vuitton’s signature monogram in every colour under the rainbow and then some), it’s a print that’s brash, fun and loud, and some have speculated that given current creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere’s new aesthetic for the luxury house, this print might also have been too much for his taste.
Slated to be gone by end July, I did some checking of my own (and by checking, I mean
mean it’s 50% from sources who can’t be named and 50% from my plastic snow globe aka the crystal ball) and have come up with a slightly different ending. Whilst it is true that the Monogram Multicolore line will no longer be available in Europe or the US, the collection will still be made available to the rest of us in Asia.
In other words, you’ll still find the bags and the SLGs like the Sarah Wallet (SGD1210) and Zippy Wallet (SGD1290, shown above) in the interim and until the luxury house decides otherwise. Because in fashion, nothing does actually last forever, so consider this your second chance.
Now excuse me, I need to go hunt down the Monogram Multicolore Zippy Coin Purse in
Black before it’s really, really gone.
I don’t know about you, but I feel dizzy each time I see a shopping bag that costs almost $3,000. Sure, I understand that Louis Vuitton and Christian Louboutin are two of the most emblematic names in the fashion world, but creating a simple shopping bag, putting your name on it and asking for a fortune for it is something totally crazy from my point of view.
Unquestionably, I am a huge fan of designer handbags. I love everything about these luxury purses and for me the beauty of a Louis Vuitton bag can’t be outmatched, but I am very sensitive when it comes to throwing money out the window like this. LV purses are elegant, sophisticated, functional and made from the most exquisite materials, but something about a $3,000 just doesn’t feel right. This year, under the slogan “Celebrating Monogram”, the very famous brand has launched a few very interesting models. One of these is the Christian Louboutin purse that features the signature red accents, feminine bows, metal studs and the iconic Monogram.
If you know a thing or two about the mythical Parisienne bags then this LV purse by Christian Louboutin is the most beautiful and modern reminiscence of this timeless style, reinterpreted in such a chic and glamorous way. Shopping, errands or picking your kids up from school, this purse is the perfect accessory that will outrageously and stylishly complement your best city outfits. Christian Dior has designed this tote shopping bag to go with the iconic Monogram canvas and a bright back panel of red calf hair. Of course, this is one of the most practical and versatile purses that you could ever wear due to its interior pockets and compartments that were created for super-chic organization. Plus, the studded outer pockets and the leather ribbons are very sophisticated.
The Louis Vuitton Shopping Bag by Christian Loubutin is a novelty in the fashion world, but as we know replica watches manufacturer…it will soon be available online in a cloned version. When the fakes are out on the market, here is what you need to know about its quality and technical particularities. These tips will help you buy an authentic looking LV by Christian Dior replica shopping bag. The fake bag should measure 30 x 31 x 12 cm and one side must be made out of the well-known Monogram canvas while the other side from a soft red calf-hair material. This is the most surprising part of the bag- the fact that one side is in Monogram with a studded outside pocket while the other is in an eye-catching red fabric. The handles should have an arched shape with the stitching at the inside.
Also, the inside of the LV Shopping Bag by Christian Louboutin replica bag should have a beige leather interior with a middle inner zipped pocket made from Monogram and red calfskin, a large inner flat pocket from red calf skin and a double smartphone pocket from red calfskin.At the outside there is no hardware except the studded pocket and the 4 bottom brass studs. So be carefull when you are shopping with it. Don’t leave it hanging around with your important belongings at the inside. Also, another lady-like detail of this purse are the knotted leather ribbons that are placed on the sides of the bag.
Simply follow the below guideline for ordering a Louis Vuitton shopping bag by Christian Louboutinreplica and you will surely get your very own exquisite luxury purse at a very decent price.Louis Vuitton
The Monogram Vernis Montana is a LV that contradicts the LV classic handbags. It is different; it has color and a lot of personality. I have a lot of Louis Vuitton purses; I have to admit that I love them all. I always get a lot of compliments when I wear my LV bags so I decided to color myself a little bit with a new and beautiful handbag. This is the reason I chose the Monogram Vernis Montana.
The Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Montana replica bag is not a large size bag, it is very close to the size of a mini bowling bag but it is amazingly beautiful. The handles are very slim but sturdy enough to stand on their own. The bag also has a long shoulder leather strap that can be detached. The leather of these bags is gorgeous. It is glossy and feminine and it has these magnetic colors that literally take your breath.
The interior of the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Montana replica bag is very spacious for a little bag. It has a large zipper pocket to keeps the phone or the money in a safe place. The bag is closing with double zipper and with a padlock for more protection. It has shiny golden brass and patent calfskin trim. It stand on four protective gold bottom studs connected one with the other through a big stitched “x”.
I love the aspect of this Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Montana replica bag, it is a Louis Vuitton that looks different but shows the same personality and quality a Louis Vuitton does. It is an elegant handbag created for classy women. Even if it is not a bag to wear at work you can easily complete your outfit when your husband takes you out for dinner or when your friends need a girl’s night out. I’m sure you’ll turn all the heads around you.
