Q: Hi! I love your blog! Been reading it since I discovered it by accident while searching for articles on the Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Neverfull. Just wanted to ask your opinion on which Epi bag you will recommend. I am a corporate lawyer and need a good bag which can present that ‘corporate’ image. I’m deciding between the Louis Vuitton Bowling Montaigne PM or the Louis Vuitton Epi Passy. Any thoughts? Would you suggest another bag? I like that both bags are epi leather and very structured. However, I am worried that the Passy is too open, having no zippers. Thanks!
A: Dear Hazel, thanks for writing in! With regards to your question, I feel that the Louis Vuitton Bowling Montaigne PM (SGD2210) is a much better choice for the fact that it provides more privacy than the other bag you shortlisted. Working in such a high-pressure job means lots of rushing around and if by accident your bag gets knocked off the table when your clients are in the room, it would be both embarassing and awkward. Get a bag with a full zip I say. And since you are still deciding, I would also recommend the Epi Alma, a classic bag that encompasses both form and function beautifully. Colours I think would suit your work wardrobe are Black and Cassis.
