This could be the start of something new. Having been around for a really long time, the Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Toiletry Pouch26 is what the name describes, a toiletry pouch (with a washable interior, no less) that’s covered in Monogram Canvas on the outside. Strangely enough though, it’s back in the limelight.
On a recent trip to Bangkok I spotted not one, but two guys sporting it as a clutch. Back in Singapore, I spotted another on Instagram belonging to a
dashing dandy magazine writer (yes, I mean you, Norman) and whilst flipping through a magazine just now, there it was again, this time in the arms of Alexa Chung who was attending an event.
In other words, it’s official. It’s ok to carry the Monogram Canvas Toiletry Pouch26 (or Poche Toilette26 in French) and use it a clutch, and one more you should include in your list of potential candidates. Available in 3 sizes, you’ll want to get the 26, the largest of the lot that comes in at 26 cm by 20 cm and frankly quite roomy. Priced at SGD485 (EUR254), besides being really durable (I’ve seen pieces from the 90s still looking as good as new), the fact that you can wipe down the interiors with a wet wipe is also a plus.
Now excuse me while I go hunt one down.
