Ask The Bagaholicboy #66 – Monogram Vernis, Monogram Canvas Or Epi?

Q: Dear Bagaholicboy, you have one fantastic blog! Witty, interesting, concise, yet bursting with information. I’m a new reader and you can bet I’m hooked!

I would greatly appreciate your opinion and expertise on a new Louis Vuitton bag the SO is getting for my birthday. I love frame bags and this time round I am thinking of getting something from the stunning Monogram Vernis collection. However I am afraid of pen marks, fingerprints, peeling and colour transfers, all my worst nightmares!

The bags I have in mind currently are the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Bellevue PM in Amarante (I cannot get over the beauty of this colour!), Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Reade PM in Pomme D’Amour, the Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Popincourt and the Louis Vuitton Epi Lockit in Ivory. I would like a colour and design that would go with almost any outfit (I’m dreaming, I know) and I adore classic looking bags.

Thanks for your time and I hope you enjoyed your holiday in Hong Kong.

P.S Why do I get this feeling that you’ll be voting for the Epi Lockit?

A: Dear Serene, thanks for your email! You read me right. I would definitely vote for the Epi Lockit (which by the way is one of my favourites as well). But instead of Ivory, why not consider the new Louis Vuitton Epi Lockit in Cassis? I like to think of it as a House classic updated with a fresh new colour. You won’t be able to match it with every outfit for sure, but that’s also why we have a collection of bags right? 

But if you are brave enough to bear the perils of owning a Monogram Vernis piece, I say get the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Alma MM. Much more classy and definitely another icon from Louis Vuitton, the one in Amarante is to die for!
Love, Bagaholicboy
