Don’t crucify me for featuring Louis Vuitton monogram bags, I’m just the messenger– this showed up in my inbox and had to share! Wow, did they really bedazzle each logo with sequins? Imagine the labor… I’m tired just thinking about it. The Speedy Gold above is $2,160 (hefty!) and love the new handles. The Alma Eclipse ($2,470) in black sequins is quite eye catching. You have to admit they are getting really creative with the iconic monogram. MJ said he was inspired by Parisian muses of great creators.
“… The Victorie de Castellane, the Loulou de la Falaise, the Betty Catroux… all these people that I remember that were just about the joy of getting dressed. The joy of being a woman, the joy of being a girl, the rebellion of saying “I don’t care what’s going on, “I’m just going to have a good time. Maybe it’s a little Marie Antoinette too.”
Marc Jacobs played with fabric on the bags just as he did with the RTW (which I’m obsessed with by the way, LV ready to wear is friggin’ hot!). What do you think of the Speedy Gold Sequin? Snob or Slob? (Update: just added the Alma Eclipse, what do ya think?)
