Louis Vuitton Monogram Savane Collection

If you’re a fan of the weird and the wonderful, a fan of Kim Jones, a fan of Chapman Brothers and a fan of Louis Vuitton, this new collection, from the French luxury house’s S/S17 collection for the boys, is definitely for you. Simply known as the Monogram Savane collection (Savane being the French word for savannah), it’s pretty obvious to see why.

Filled with beasts that roam the wide open lands of Africa given the #ChapmanBrothers treatment, they look slightly deranged with googly eyes and menacing teeth, which in a strange way, is also why these pieces are so appealing. The other thing to note is the house monogram that’s been given a mini-makeover of sorts. Outlined, instead of the solids we are more used to, it works well on the Ink (a dark blue) or Watercolour (a light cream) that most of the bags, small leather goods and additional accessories this seasonal collection will be made available in.

First up, we’ve got the Louis Vuitton’s classic Pochette Voyage MM (shown above) that comes with a crazed-looking lion on the Monogram Savane Inkprint. Priced at SGD1160, there’s another in Monogram Savane Watercolour print that comes with a giraffe and a rhino, which you’ll see posted on my Facebook page later.

Another interesting beast to consider is this, the Messenger GM that comes with a bug-eyed zebra. Complete with an adjustable strap, a main compartment with a pair of front pockets and finished with a front flap, it’s a bag that’s good for both play and work, provided of course you work in the creative line. Priced at SGD3800, don’t you just adore zebra’s crazily extended tongue as well?

And then there are the small leather goods, of which a small selection is shown above. From the iPhone7 Folio (SGD470) that comes in Monogram Savane Ink to the Pocket Organiser and the PF Brazza in Monogram Savane Watercolour (prices are unavailable as yet), these pieces will all make great additions for fans of Louis Vuitton. Or to those who appreciate quality, great design and a sense of humour.

For those looking for a proper billfold, there’s also the PF Multiple in Monogram Savane Ink, which will set you back by just SGD820. And for the perfect finishing touches, there’s everything from bag charms (or key rings) to a set of coin-like brooches. The bracelet, which looks like it’s inspired by pull-tabs from drink cans, looks pretty cool too. And yes, there will be more updates (bag styles and prices) to come so do stay tuned.

Bag Review: Louis Vuitton Monogram Nano Dora

Louis Vuitton

As you get older like me (ouch!), you will find yourself wanting to carry bags with less weight. A month ago, I went to the Louis Vuitton boutique and saw the cutest mini bags. They are lightweight and easy to carry because of the shoulder strap which works for crossbody wear. Alongside the classic mini pieces (speedy, noe, alma), there was the mini version of the Monogram Dora.

NanoDora1

It is a very cute, structured nano bag. But woaah the price is already at par with that of a regular sized Speedy! Would you rather go with this adorable little bag or would you pay for the larger Speedy? 

The Monogram Nano Dora can fit a card case, your phone, a lipstick, a powder compact, and probably a pair of sunnies, though I won’t exactly push it only because I don’t know how squished it might get inside with all your other things. But it definitely fits 

NanoDora2

I would probably buy this bag if I have a lot of $$$, but hah since I am currently cutting down on the stuff that has cluttered my closet, I will just save my money for something else 

And speaking of clutter, I decided to put up a group on Facebook called THE CLOSET RAIDERS. This is an online bulletin board for everyone to post CLOTHES and SHOES (no bags or wallets please– if you have a designer bag *worth over PhP 10K, send me a PM on instagram.com/shopthebaghag for consignment) that they no longer use or wear. I have a lot of stuff I will post in the next month, after I get back from my fashion week travels. It is a closed group so please ask to be added

Saint Laurent YSL Monogram Collection

Other Brands

saint_laurent_ss15-ysl-monogram-collection1Consider this a refresher post. For those of you who might have been slightly confused between Saint Laurent’s YSL Monogram and Toile Monogram collections, here’s help. Whereas Toile Monogram refers to anything that comes in repetitive YSL monogram print, YSL Monogram is any bag that comes adorned with the YSL logo, designed by artist Cassandre in 1961 on Monsieur Saint Laurent’s request.

And while the Toile Monogram collection is more straightforward in terms of styles available (it’s also permanent so pieces don’t really change much from season to season), the YSL Monogram is much larger, with bags and SLGs in almost every style from both permanent and seasonal collections that all come adorned with the YSL emblem.

saint_laurent_ss15-ysl-monogram-collection2So what style of bags can you expect from the YSL Monogram collection? Everything really, from quilted leather shoulder bags to top handle handbags. Then there are the hobos, the satchels and of course, the sexier sling bags that many have grown to love.

saint_laurent_ss15-ysl-monogram-collection3Because this post wouldn’t be quite complete without some examples of bags from the YSL Monogram collection, here are some current season beauties you could most definitely check out, from the one in embossed croc to tanned leather Université, with prices ranging from SGD2890 to SGD3230 for the lot shown above. Or head online via this link for a more complete selection.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane

Louis Vuitton

Replica Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas HavaneBag Front

Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane is the perfect example of style and grace. It is more than an elegant purse. It is the irresistible merge of precious materials and unimaginably refined lines. The LV Pallas allures us with the most seductive mix of Monogram canvas, natural cowhide leather trim and colored calf leather. It tempts us with a distinctive design and a comfortable feel.

The Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane is a very functional and luxurious tote purse made from the Iconic LV brown coated canvas. There are many color variations for this model and these refer to the supple calf leather used on the V shaped top of the bag: Pink, Clementine, Amethyste, Pistache, Havane, Aurore, Cerise, Quetsche, Noir and Saffran. This upper part of the LV Pallas reveals secured compartments and enhances its feminine design and accentuated functionality.

Louis Vuitton Pallas Monogram measures 13.4″ x 10.2″ x 4.7″ and the Havana version is actually a lighter shade of brown. I like this color best as it manages to perfectly represent the emblematic elegance and simplicity of the iconic LV brand.

The Pallas Havana replica from these pictures is one of the best representations I have seen so far. I was impressed with the quality of the monogram canvas that has a very authentic shine and texture. When you touch it, it feels very supple and durable. Also, the pattern printed on the canvas fabric is very exact, featuring an exact reproduction of the LV logo and flower motifs.

The Louis Vuitton Pallas Monogram bag has a rectangle shape while the sides are small triangles that allow the purse to expand or contract depending on the volume of the things you need to carry inside. The purse isn’t small at all. It is quite large, perfect for accommodating all the things you need for keeping an active life style. By all means, it is a very functional and versatile bag, the accessory that every city gal needs in her closet.

Tote bags are very practical and very comfortable, but lately most of these come with a snap closing tab or hook. I hate it when my things are so exposed to unwanted eyes or hands. Luckily, the LV Pallas Monogram Havane has a zipper closing system. The V shaped top part of the bag reveals a gold color thick and durable double zip closure. As you can see in the photos, my LV replica has the same type of zipper that safely closes the bag. The zipper is made from a beautifully crafted gold metal, very think and sturdy.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane Close Up

The original LV Pallas purse comes with natural cowhide Toron Leather handles. This type of handles are nicely rounded and sewn on the inside to offer an extra robustness and a defined arched shape. Also, as a dramatic effect, the inside margins of the handles are red color. The Palas Monogram Havane replica I have purchased has the same type of Toron leather handles that manage to look pretty authentic and elegant. In addition, the handles are attached to the bag by two rectangular thick metallic plates that are engraved with the circled R, “LOUIS VUITTON and “PARIS” written on different rows. This authenticity marking can be seen also on the real bag.

Fake Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane Inside

At the inside, the purse has a delicate microfiber lining in the same color as the colored calf leather used on the top part of the bag. In the case of my replica, at the inside there is a brown smooth textile fabric that looks very nice and genuine. Just like the original Pallas, this LV fake has two interior pockets that are perfect for accommodating your smart phones.

Fake Monogram Pallas Havane Zipper

If you are more of a shoulder bag type then you will be pleased to find out that the Louis Vuitton Pallas comes with a beautiful adjustable and removable Monogram canvas strap. You can adjust its length to fit your height and body construction by using a gold buckle. My fake Pallas Havana also came with this very useful strap and I have already tried it on. It feels very comfortable and light, but I prefer the tote handles instead.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane Replica Handbag

The most important thing on a fake bag is getting the authenticity markings right and it looks like this Pallas fake has succeeded in correctly imitating all the LV logos. The most visible one is the one embossed on the colored calf leather on the upper part of the bag. Just like on the real product, my replica correctly reads out the circled R letter, “LOUIS VUITTON” and “PARIS”. Next, at the inside there is a squared leather tab in the same color as the leather handles that says “LOUIS VUITTON”, “PARIS” and “Made in France”. And the most subtle ones are the stamping of all the metallic pieces with the Louis Vuitton name and initials. Luckily, my knockoff successfully passed this test as well.

Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane Imitation Purse

The stitching on the LV Pallas Monogram isn’t that obvious and pronounced. The colors of the threads are carefully selected as to be in similar tones as the ones of the canvas and leather. The handles have beige color threads while the body of the bag is sewn in brown color. Both the original and on the replica bag the stitching is perfect. The threads are evenly spaced apart and do not have any loose threads. The base of the purse is reinforced by stiches placed vertically on the outer sides and by a X shaped stitching on the center. Also, on each end of the stitched X there is one gold metallic feet.

Replica Louis Vuitton Monogram Pallas Havane Tag

All the Pallas bags have gold color hardware and every part of metal on it carries the Louis Vuitton name or initials. My Pallas Havane replica has the same gold color hardware that seems to be very well finished and engraved with the exact same authenticity marks, including the four rounded studs that support the base of the purse.

The Louis Vuitton Pallas Monogram Canvas Havane is one of the most chic and functional luxury designer bags. Due to its unique shape, generous size, versatile use and subtle folds it can serve ideally as a stylish carry bag for the utterly modern woman. This is why, if you have your mind set on a glamorous LV Pallas replica, I advise you to read this practical and thorough review. It can make the difference between a successful purchase and a real disaster.
