I’m not exactly sure why Louis Vuitton is calling it what it is, but I’ve checked the press kits and look books twice over to make sure I got it correct. Officially referred to as the Louis Vuitton Monogram Idylle collection, it comprises 2 new bags as well as 2 reinvented classics. First up, we’ve got the Louis Vuitton Monogram Idylle Elegie, which resembles the Monogram Mini Lin Angele that came out last year. Available in 3 colours including Fusian (shown above), Encre (bluish-gray) and Sepia (dusty-pink), this tote will retail for SGD2030 once it is released in March 2010.
Next there is the Louis Vuitton Monogram Idylle Romance, a single-handled hobo that can be ‘closed’ by latching the buckle. On each side is a deep side pocket. Also available in the same colour palette I’ve mentioned earlier, the one shown here is in Encre, or the bluish-gray version and retails for SGD1960.
May I present the Louis Vuitton Monogram Idylle Speedy30 Bandouliere which comes with its very own removable/adjustable shoulder sling. I know many of you have been waiting for a version like this to launch for the longest time and well, your prayers have been answered. Measuring 30 cm by 21 cm, I also like the fact that it comes with double zippers on the top, a feature not seen in a regular Speedy. It will also come in all 3 colours, including the ones in Fusian and Sepia shown above and will be priced at SGD1650 each.
And last but not least, another reworked classic, the Louis Vuitton Monogram Idylle Speedy45 Voyage. No guys, I did not make a mistake. It is really known as the Speedy45, and not the Keepall45. I’m guessing this is so because the entire collection is primarily targeted at the ladies and therefore they decided to give the luggage piece a name with a feminine ring to it. Feminine or not, I’m personally keen on the one in Encre, just need to see it in person and see if I can pull it off. Priced at SGD2120, this is the 2nd bag from the Spring-Summer 2010 Womens Louis Vuitton collection I am eyeing. Not good at all if you ask me…
The Monogram Idylle collection is tentatively set for a March 2010 launch, but I will update the blog as soon as I get any more updates.
