No, this isn’t new at Louis Vuitton, but one of the more under-the-radar designs you’ll find today at the French luxury house. Sporting that schoolboy satchel silhouette in a mix of bright bold hues, here are some interesting points about this underrated Neo Monceau.
Launched 4 seasons or so back, this satchel-inspired bag takes design codes from the classic Monceau, a vintage design that was finished with trunk-like elements like the lock mechanism on the clasp. This bag retains the same boxy shape, measuring 22 cm wide and 18 cm high, and you will be pleased to know that it features an interesting mix of 4 different colours. There’s Black over on the main body, Bleu Roi Blue on the shoulder strap, Coquelicot Red found on the handle, sides and interior, as well as Safran Yellow featured as a luggage tag attached on the handle.
Made from hardy Épi grained cowhide leather, you can be sure that this unisex Neo Monceau makes for a lovely companion by your side, thanks to its classic silhouette that’s pretty timeless. The easy-to-use interior is also a plus, with a bigger compartment for several SLGs and a smaller slot in front for other bits and bobs. Priced at SGD3450 each, the bag is still available for sale today, available in the same four-colour combination that’s visually interesting from all angles.
