Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Menilmontant

June 1, 2011

When is a Saumur not a Saumur? When it is the new Menilmontant, of course. Louis Vuitton took the old classic and gave it a refreshing update, and gone are the details like the front belt buckle (replaced with magnetic closure instead) and expandable sides. The front flap is also pleated, and on the inside, expect details like a single zip pocket and two wide slots for all your paper-related bits and bobs.

Available in two sizes (PM and MM), the Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Menilmontant is expected to go on sale worldwide from June 2011. And for those who are keen, here’s an idea for the sizing. As far as the larger MM is concerned, it will measure 43 cm across by 30.5 cm, while the smaller PM will come in at around 40 cm by 29 cm. Which technically makes both much larger than the Saumur which only comes in at 29 cm in width.

Priced at SGD1720 for the MM and SGD1450 for the PM, it isn’t all that pricey either, which makes it a good candidate for those looking for an entry-level hands-free messenger. Still, I’ve got to ask. Between the larger revamped Menilmontant and the smaller classic Saumur, which do you prefer, and why?

BBoy, have you seen it? Is the lock functional on the bag? Or just decoration? (FB)
