Louis Vuitton Celebrating Monogram: The Icon and Iconoclasts by Christian Louboutin

As ubiquitous as the LV Monogram is, it still amazes me how it can transform itself. I am pleased to write about this latest collaboration of the House of Vuitton. In my 7 years of blogging, I have a LVoe and hate relationship with the Monogram, but somehow it still captures my imagination. As I mature and my tastes tend more to simple, brand less, functional pieces, there is still a part of me that celebrates the initials, diamonds and flowers as George Vuitton conceived it over a century ago.
For this particular post, I would like to start off with Christian Louboutin's interpretation of the famed brown canvas.  Envisioning no doubt a Parisienne in one of her shopping trips, he outfits her with his studs, bows, and signature red colour which is oh so very, Christian!
Priced at $5150 for the shopping tote, I don't think I be wheeling the $23300 shopping cart to my grocery store any time soon. 
It's fun, it's whimsical and it's limited!
LVoe it!!!

Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2014 2015 Ad Campaign

Three iconic photographers lent their magic to Louis Vuitton's Fall Winter Ad campaign this year. Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber, and Juergen Teller were chosen to portray the LV woman through the eyes of Nicolas Ghesquière.  Entitled "Series 1", the ads were shot in Miami, New York & Venice and features Charlotte Gainsbourg (NG's muse), Liya Kedebe, Freja Beha Erichsen (who opened this year's show), and Jean Campbell.  Check out the video after the photos. 

Louis Vuitton Tuileries

Ahhh….the classic Monogram Canvas…still LV's main seller is interpreted here with long vache straps that runs across its body. Adjustable to suit any frame, this $1810 bag measures 17.3 x 10.2 x 5.9" so it's quite large for toting the essentials. Crafted of pliable canvas, it will surely be a hit for those LVooking for function and style.

Louis Vuitton Marly

I have been so out of the "Louis Vuitton scene" for many months, that when I read about the much tooted Marly, the first thing I thought was a reincarnation of the discontinued bandouliere version. Much to my surprise, a city tote that boasts of a day to evening LVook came up in my searches. I guess this is LV's version of its Fendi cousin, the 2jours. 
Crafted out of Epi leather, it comes in MM and BB sizes, the latter of which are more suited to the fun colours that it comes in. Priced at $2810 and $2350, respectively, it's not bad, but in my day those were the prices for limited edition runway bags. Gosh, I am so old even in Louis years.
MM colours (dune, indigo, coquelicot, fuschia, black) ; BB (pistache, figue, coquelicot, black)
