Already a hit in Singapore, the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Alma MM in Violette (SGD3200) is admittedly even more gorgeous in real life. I’ve seen it twice myself, once on the arm on a well-dressed matron, and another at the boutique. I think it is stunning and the higher price point means only a few will want to get it. What I am more worried about however are the ‘horror’ stories I have heard about fingerprints that won’t go away, colour transfers that ruin the bag and handles that may peel over time.
Anyone out there ever faced any problems with anything from the Monogram Vernis range?
And before I forget, Rei Kawabubo of Comme des Garçons and Louis Vuitton will be collaborating on 6 one-off ‘party’ bags to be launched in Tokyo come September. How exciting is that?
