LVook-See: Monogram Fetish Lockits
Nothing beats spending the weekend than playing with Louis Vuittons! Especially if they are the soon to be released Runway Bags. The three that I saw were from the Monogram Fetish Collection comprising of the Lockit, Lockit BB and the take-my-breath-away Lockit Clutch. The Clutch's amazing detail is the solid brass manacle that is attached to a chain. Ample enough to hold some stuff for an evening, I don't think it can be used as an everyday bag. Hmmm...I think I can pull it off while shopping at the grocery store. The chain is detachable, though it is permanently fastened to the manacle. I wish it weren't so because it's a great bracelet in itself. The next two pieces are the petite Lockit BB and its bigger brother, the Lockit. The BB is utterly useless but absolutely adorable. I bet this is a test run piece to see if it will sell to match the highly popular Alma BB. The Lockit on the other hand sits comfortably once held though I wish it came a tad bit bigger. It's definitely the most functional of all of them. Lined in sumptuous goat leather, the beige makes the interior bright which is an advantage if you are looking for something. Take note: Goat explains the high price tag. I LVoe the clochette detail on the Monogram Fetish Clutch. Even though the tiret is quite short, the large lip makes it balanced somehow. The side seam of the Lockit also has this "cut" to it that is an interesting detail. Of course, a Lockit won't be complete without a lock but for this line it is wrapped in canvas. All three have white contrast stitching, white glaze and white resin zipper pulls that makes the collection unique. Priced at $3050 for the Lockit, $2420 for the Clutch and $1560 for the BB, they are scheduled to be released on August 15 so better hurry if you want to reserve them. LVoe it!!!
