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!!!
