An eye-catching piece, isn’t? This masterpiece is actually discovered in the House’s archives, the 50s-era kimono design has been injected into this fabulous tote bag.

Kimono is a Japanese traditional garment, the word ‘Kimono’ actually means ‘thing to wear’. The name also alludes to the V-cross motif, inspired by the Japanese robe.

The tote bag is created partly in monogram canvas, the graphic pattern on the calf leather in multicolor is a modern addition that goes well with any of your casual chic clothing. Carrying this bag means adding cultural knowledge into your outfit, as well as dazzling people’s eyes because of these fabulous colors.

The interior features a central zipped compartment; it’s spacious enough to carry all your essentials. The bag also comes with a removable leather strap and it opens and closes with the transversal snap hook closure.

LOUIS VUITTON KIMONO TOTE BAG

Louis-Vuitton-Kimono-Tote-Bag-Red

Last week, we gave an introduction about the Louis Vuitton Kimono Tote Bag. This is a new type of handbag designed for the Spring Summer 2015 Collection.

It’s alluring because of the two traditions combined in one – the V-cross motif and the Japanese Robe.

The V-signature is inspired by the Classic Advertisement of 1965, on the ad it was written: ‘Volez Voguez, Voyagez avec des Valises Louis Vuitton’. And if you’ve been following us recently, you couldn’t have missed the importance of the V symbol embellished on new the new handbags since Nicolas Ghesquiere took over the giant ship.

The other tradition is the Japanese Robe – the tote bag is partly designed in Monogram Canvas and the other half in fine calf leather. The Calf leather is available in different colors like black, red or purple.

The Louis Vuitton Kimono Tote Bag is both roomy and remarkably light, it’s a pleasure to carry. It features long Toron leather handles, 1 central zipped compartment and 4 bottom studs.

The brand’s signature is written on the front of the bag. Measuring 17.3’ x 15.7’ x 5.9’ (L x H x W) inches, priced at $3250 USD, €2280 euro via Louis Vuitton boutique.

Louis Vuitton Monogram World Tour

Handbags

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!

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

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 Monogram Rouge Noir Petite Malle Souple

Louis Vuitton News

louis_vuitton_monogram-rouge-noir-petite-malle-souple-gm

As promised, here’s another post on Louis Vuitton’s S/S15 collection that features not only a new bag, but a new ‘colour’ as well. Given Nicolas Ghesquière’s update for the new season, he has taken the traditional brown/beige Monogram Canvas and updated it into a black/red combination that’s actually quite stunning. Called Monogram Rouge Noir, this coated canvas will be making an appearance on a selection of bags, SLGs and even shoes, including the one shown above which I’ll get to next.

One of the pieces I fell hardest for when I previewed it last year during the press presentation in Bangkok, it’s a squishy soft-sided take on the Petite Malle which has done very well for the French luxury house of late. Looking almost exactly like its predecessor right down to its leather trim and front clasp, it’s topped with a zip that runs right across the bag for easy access.

Available in 2 sizes (the MM and the GM), the unisex Petite Malle Souple will also come in toile and calf leather, but for now, let’s just focus on this beauty. Besides being easier to handle (it’s squishy, remember?), it’s also a tad (just a tad) easier on the pocket, with the MM and GM retailing for SGD4800 and SGD5650 respectively.

To be released sometime in early March 2015 (late February if we’re lucky), there are only 2 things you need to do right now regarding this bag. Save. And wait list. Which is what I’ll be doing as far as this baby is concerned.

How To Clean And Care Your Louis Vuitton Alma Bag in Monogram Canvas

Handbags

louis-vuitton-alma-bag-care-clean-maintenance

Yesterday we stole a couple of hours of Victoria’s time and ask her everything about cleaning and caring designer handbags. Because we noticed that she has already been infected by ‘bag obsession’ (no cure for that, I guarantee), we needed her to share some real-life experience. We took her favorite Louis Vuitton Alma Bag as an example; ‘Victoria, please tell us your story!’

I purchased this Louis Vuitton Alma bag because I am OBSESSED with handbags and Louis Vuitton, the Alma is such a classic bag for any person of any age and in my opinion one of the top classics in the LV collection.

My shopping experience with Louis Vuitton is always amazing, I always shop at my home store which is in the United States in Florida at the International Mall in Tampa. They are always so welcoming and helpful.

I purchased the Alma I believe in Tampa, Florida that is where most my Louis’ are purchased!

I think I purchased this bag about 5 -6 years ago or probably more than that! The retail price then I believe it was a little over 1000 I believe? now I believe it currently retails for 1500.

Why did you choose this leather and what is your experience so far?
Louis Vuitton Monogram is the first and top styles to come in most bags, the far most popular to really say “ I am carrying a Louis Vuitton” when I first purchased the Alma they did not carry it in the Damier Ebene, vernis. ☹

Have you accidentally damaged your bag so far? If so, then what was your initial response and how did you resolve it?
OH my! This is a big one, I am soo protective over all my handbags, they are expensive bags and to not take care of them is so upsetting. In Florida in rains constantly, I constantly and putting them under my shirts if I don’t have an umbrella or find a plastic bag to shove them in! I had once got the bottom wet, my little brother put my bag on the floor of a restaurant ( YES HE DID) I don’t ever do that, and of course… it was slightly wet.

In which occasion do you often use this bag? (as an everyday?)
I only use this bag maybe every other month for a week. I frequently change out my handbags, and working in an office environment I sometimes don’t like bringing my high end bags.

What do you do to maintain your bag?
I always keep my handbags in the original dust bag this is a must! It keeps it from getting moisture in or any dust bunnies or anything that likes to hide! I also keep stuffing inside the bags so it doesn’t loose its shape!

Do you use any products? If so, then what are the products and prices? Also how often do you maintain your bag and how do you put these products in use?
I do use products, I love the Kate Spade Conditioner and leather cleaner they are both available for only $10 a piece on Kate Spades web site! I usually clean my bags every 2 months or so, but definitely before and after I use the handbag!

Have you tried any products that didn’t work out in the past?
I haven’t had any bad luck with products, all I can suggest is make sure you use LEATHER cleaner, some people just use soap and water never do that!

Where and how do you store your bag?
I store my bag in my handbag containers which is actually in it’s physical dust bag. I never keep it out of the dustbag unless I am using it… I actually think when I am using it at night I put it back in the dust bag. ☺

Do you have any more tips and advices for newbies?
Love your handbags! They are expensive pieces but they can last forever, take care of them and if you ever have questions ask! Bring them into someone to clean if you don’t trust yourself. Most Louis Vuitton stores have people they recommend to send the handbags too!
