Louis Vuitton Introduces New Monogram Split at Men’s Spring 2018 Runway Show

Louis Vuitton News

THE BRAND’S MEN’S DESIGNER, KIM JONES, IS AT IT AGAIN WITH NEW TAKES ON LV’S FAMOUS LOGO

When it comes to bags, I sometimes feel like I look forward to Louis Vuitton‘s men’s show more than its show for women. Don’t get me wrong—the women’s bags put out by Nicolas Ghesquiere’s team are always a seasonal highlight for me, but men’s designer Kim Jones has a particular way of melding the brand’s signatures with a particular sort of sportiness that makes everything feel fresh, casual and easy to integrate into a wardrobe.

One of my favorite things about Jones’ men’s bags has been his use of color beyond the traditional chocolate and tan of the Louis Vuitton monogram, specifically his mixtures of black, grey and various shades of blue. The brand new Louis Vuitton Monogram Split print, which Jones debuted on his Spring 2018 runway in Paris last week, is the latest in this line of experiments. As you might imagine, the inspiration for the name comes from how the print looks on the bag.

Ghesquiere has played with inverting the traditional colors of the LV monogram in his women’s bags and then using both combinations in the same piece, and here Jones is doing something similar with the Monogram Eclipse color scheme he created: the motifs are the same color in each part of the print, but the background is different, half light and half dark. It’s a lot of logo, but the sporty finishes make that feel appropriate—after all, streetwear’s influence on recent fashion has brought about a full-scale resurgence of the major logo bag. Minimalists will hate it, but Louis Vuitton has never been for them anyway.

Handbags

Louis-Vuitton-Damier-Stitched-Chain-It-Bag

The Louis Vuitton Damier Chain It Bag might be headed to the bag fandom and fame with its one-of-a-kind DNA and tone on tone embroidery, which resembles the iconic Damier pattern.

Taking its inspiration from the architectural and structural spirit of the show, the Louis Vuitton Damier Chain It Bag was first released in 2017. In fact, it was exclusively only available in Louis Vuitton New Bond Street at Harrods thus only a selected few can own this design. The previous one was created un smooth leather, but today Louis Vuitton unleashes a newer version with the emblematic Damier Pattern.

Let’s get back to the bag details and keep it rolling. Featuring sleek lines and an impeccable design, this Chain It Bag looks promising as it features a statement chain embellishment. It also boasts of a distinctive nautical inspired design and a smart closing system which reveals a central button with LV circle signature to complete and finish its look.

Featuring a smooth calfskin leather with tone on tone Damier stitching, this gem is fabulously complemented by its silver colored metallic pieces. It also features a Toron retractable top handle and a removable leather strap for effortless hand, shoulder, and across the body carrying.

It also boasts of an inside zipped pocket and an inside flat pocket to keep your things organized. It measures 10” x 8” x 4” inches and is priced $3450 USD, $4250 CAD, $28700 HKD, $4400 AUD, ¥26600 CNY via Louis Vuitton boutiques.

Louis Vuitton builds plush trunks for the 2017 French Open Trophies

Louis Vuitton News


It’s time for the second grand slam of the year and we cannot wait to witness our beloved hotshots, (read Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Angelique Kerber) sweating it out for the legendary Roland-Garros’ trophies. Amidst the high-power struggles and some on and off court drama, one news that has managed to catch our eye is the unveiling of the novel LV trunks that will house the Grand 2017 French Open Trophies.


The French label has specially created two trophy trunks for the Suzanne-Lenglen Cup and the Musketeers’ Cup, each of which is awarded to the French Open Women’s and Men’s champions every year. Manufactured by Maison Mellerio, the oldest and probably the most revered Goldsmith in the world, the two trophies are a result of long hours of work and excellent craftsmanship. It’s no wonder then, that the prestigious cups have found a home as luxurious as the LV trunks.

Meticulously produced at the brand’s historic workshops in Asnières, the LV trunks boast of terracotta-colored interiors as well as the signature brass corners and lock. Adorned in the iconic Monogram canvas, one can also catch the quintessential ‘V’ mark on the front of them for an added dose of charm. It will certainly be exciting to know who bags these luxe LV trunks (and the French open trophies) this year.

Louis-Vuitton-x-Supreme-Eye-Trunk-for-iPhone

Now Louis Vuitton partners with Supreme in releasing new style of Eye-Trunk Cases. But they’re not released yet, so you need to wait until they hit the stores.

Sporting Louis Vuitton’s well-famed Monogram canvas in spicy red color, this iPhone case serves more than a protective cover as it can also double as a fashionable accessory that you can bring around. Take a closer look and you will notice that the Supreme Eye Trunk Case resembles that of a traditional Louis Vuitton trunk in a smaller and trendier iPhone Case version. A coveted phone accessory piece to own this season, this Louis Vuitton iPhone case is highly anticipated with its fashion-forward style. Donning a fiery color of red that has long been associated with passion and desire, this iPhone cover is further adorned with the LV and Supreme logo in white and further accentuated with silver-tone hardware.

The Supreme Eye-Trunk is available for both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. No details yet about its price but we expect them to be:

Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Eye-Trunk For iPhone 7

Fall-Winter 2017 Mens Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton News

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

I’ll be honest, this should have been a new post that focussed on the upcoming #LVxSupreme pieces that’s part of the FW/17, but with Louis Vuitton playing coy with anything related to that much-anticipated collaboration between the French luxury house and streetwear giant Supreme, here’s everything else from the Fall-Winter 2017 Mens Louis Vuitton collection instead.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Don’t get me wrong – the rest of the collection isn’t shabby at all, with most everything from bags and SLGs to shoes and accessories beautifully thought out by the man who can do no wrong, Kim Jones. And speaking of accessories, first let us savour the DJ turnable that comes in its very own Monogram Macassar trunk. If I have the money/skills/space, this would be it.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

Next we’ve got part of the collection that’s mostly in browns, from the backpack I love (Christopher PM) in mixed materials that’s part-Monogram Canvas and part-Epi in a variety of gorgeous earth tones. Then there is the massive Monogram Initials bag made solely for the use of storing (and transporting) vinyl records, along with a smattering of SLGs from the same line. Why Monogram Initials? Because the initials (in black leather) are literally stitched onto the Monogram Canvas surface for a look that’s truly graphic. And because this FW17 collection is big on mixed materials, you’ll even find pieces like the belt that comes with Monogram Canvas on the outside and Epi on the inside.

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

If Monogram Canvas isn’t your thing, here are some of the mostly-Epi bag and SLGs that you’ll find from F/W17, from the sling bag that’s mostly Epi on the front and trimmed with Monogram Eclipse on the side to a dash of SLGs in the same finish. You’ll also find more belts, scarves and of course, another set of pins that will rival even the #LVxFragment ones.

As usual, no word yet on their exact release dates (or prices in SGD) so expect more updates soon. On these and hopefully on the Supreme pieces.
