Louis Vuitton Tropical Journey Collection


As far back as I can remember, Louis Vuitton has always had a summer collection, a selection of bags and SLGs dedicated to the arrival of everyone’s favourite beach-lazing, pina colada-sipping and suntan oil-applying time of the year. But while that’s practically every single day in our part of the world, don’t let that affect you when getting into the spirit of ‘Tropical Journey‘, made up of two distinct prints, Monogram Jungle and Monogram Bay.

Which is what you’re seeing on the Speedy30 that’s shown above, the Monogram Jungle print a mix of fronds and dots, the fronds referencing tropical palm trees, the dots symbolising the patterns you’ll find on the fur of wild animals. Given that context, the print does make perfect sense, no?


Besides the Speedy30 which will retail for SGD1880, by the way, you’ll also find other bags in this special limited edition capsule collection, from the Neverfull MM (comes in two colours, the one in Sugar Pink/Coqulicot and Poppy/Denim, which is also the one you see above with the blue dots) to the Palm Springs Backpack PM (far right), also in both colours. Priced at SGD2110 and SGD2910 respectively, I’m thinking these will be very popular as well.

Now, let’s address the bag on the left of the image shown above, which sports the other print from #MonogramJungle. Spotting the same fur print dots but without the palm fronds, staring at it makes my skin crawl, and I’m guessing it’s because of my trypophobia. In other words, thanks, but no thanks; I’ll pass on this print.


Seriously. #MonogramJungle #nuffsaid


Moving on, besides the Speedy30 and the Neverfull MM, there’s also a Keepall and a Pégase, both of which you can see here via this link. There is also a smattering of SLGs in both prints, and before I sign off, here’s another image of the Palm Springs Backpack PM bags in both colour combinations that are slowly but surely growing on me.


You’ve seen Monogram Jungle, now have a look at #MonogramBay, inspired by nautical-inspired chains that also showed up on Louis Vuitton’s earlier Cruise and Spring-Summer collections. A new design created by Nicolas Ghesquière, you find this print on the Neverfull and the Speedy as well as a selection of SLGs too.

Oh yes, one last thing. Like LV’s America’s Cup collection, this capsule collection will also be launched in Singapore on 1 April 2016. Wait list now, or regret forever.
