The second line from the Cruise 2009 Womens Louis Vuitton collection, the Monogram Scuba uses neoprene (a synthetic rubber used more commonly in wetsuits, laptop sleeves and car fan belts) as the base for their bags that come in either fluorescent Fuchsia or Orange. There are 3 different pieces in this collection, an oversized tote also known as the Monogram Scuba GM (shown above) and the Monogram Scuba MM, a smaller holdall-type tote (shown below).
Last but not least to round off the collection, there is the Monogram Scuba Clutch (shown above), which also comes in Orange. Again no word yet on the prices, but I will have updates soon. And even though Marc gets my vote for his innovative use of materials, this collection ain’t exactly a favourite of mine at the moment. I may change my mind once I see them for real, but for now, this is my stand.
