Monograms have their fair share of fans, especially with Louis Vuitton’s extensive repertoire of Monogram Canvas bags that constantly rank high on must-have lists. Here to help you get familiar with the logos are five varied styles.
Some may be familiar favourites, while others fall under the new-in category. Nevertheless, they all fit within the narrative of Louis Vuitton classic mini bags, each crafted in the brand’s signature Monogram Canvas with natural cowhide leather trims.
The list begins with two wider options. Firstly, the Wallet on Chain Ivy (SGD2540), which measures 23.5 cm by 12 cm. While inspired by the Sac Recoleta handbag from Louis Vuitton’s archives, it comes with a new adjustable, detachable strap and gold-tone chain. The magnetic closure is also easy to use, and it contains three card slots within.
Next, the versatile Félicie Pochette flap pouch, which easily offers the most bang for your buck in this line-up. Measuring 21 cm by 12 cm, it contains two useful accessories that you can remove and use separately. One is a zipper pouch, while the flat pocket holds eight card slots. Together, they make for a neat three-in-one at just SGD2070.
Then, we move on to miniature offerings, starting with the Micro Chantilly (SGD2380). At 13 cm by 12.5 cm, it truly lives up to its namesake, just in tiny form. The sophisticated micro saddle bag also comes with a removable and adjustable strap to enable shoulder and crossbody carry.
Similarly, the Mini Pochette Accessoires On Chain is essentially the same MPA but smaller. It also comes with an additional chain and retails at SGD1190. Word has it that there are now very limited quantities available in-store, so if this darling catches your eye, hurry.
Lastly, the Mini Bumbag (SGD2810) is a downsized version of a similar men’s style. Measuring 17 cm wide and 9.5 cm high, it features a zip pocket in front and a central zip compartment for holding everything else. This, too, comes with a long adjustable strap and shorter gold-tone chain, both removable.
