This is no ordinary Monogram Empreinte leather, but rather, an all-new iridescent finish that gives the leather a slight shimmering sheen when placed under light. Louis Vuitton describes this as a ‘pearly finish’ on the embossed monogram leather, and you will be able to find several bags and SLGs that come in the Navy Nacre (otherwise known as navy blue) colour now.
Love something small but functional? You can opt for the Enveloppe Carte De Visite (SGD590) and the Key Pouch (SGD560), measuring 10.5 cm by 8 cm and 13.5 cm by 7 cm respectively. The former is mostly built for holding essential cards, but no one’s stopping you from folding a small stack of cash and placing it within the main compartment if that’s your go-to mode of payment.
The Key Pouch, on the other hand, has evolved to become a modern-day coin purse, with the extra clasp perfect for attaching onto larger bags as a miniature charm as well.
Two other styles include the relatively new Cléa Wallet (SGD1470) along with the classic Zippy Wallet (SGD1690). The Cléa is a well-designed SLG with 2 gusseted compartments, a coin pocket and 6 card slots in a compact format, while the Zippy Wallet is the perfect continental (19.5 cm by 10.5 cm) that always holds more than it should.
Lastly, there’s the Speedy Bandoulière 20 (SGD3550) comes in a refreshed size that measures 20.5 cm wide and 13.5 cm high, making this a great option for those who have always wanted a Speedy that’s slightly smaller than the 25.
Aside from the new iridescent Navy Nacre Monogram Empreinte leather, this Speedy Bandoulière 20 will be sold together with a contemporary chain-and-leather strap, allowing you to sling the Speedy casually across the body for that stylish everyday look.
