Louis Vuitton Monogramouflage Treillis Tote
Just about every season Louis Vuitton comes out with a set of Limited Edition bags. Sometimes those Limited Edition bags had the creative input from a high profiled artist. Takashi Murakami has shared his creative expertise with quite a few Louis Vuitton collections including the Multicolore, Panda, Cherry Blossom and many more. Takashi Murakami’s latest collection for Louis Vuitton is the Monogramouflage. Monogramouflage was inspired by one of Murakamiâ€™s major works â€œmagic ball.â€
The Monogramouflage collection has it’s pro’s and con’s. The collection is not eye candy, but yet the style of the bags are quite fabulous. One of the styles I absolutely love is the Treillis. To me it is so versatile and I could easily use it as an everyday handbag, or a school bag. The name tag adds a spectacular final touch to this handbag. Itâ€™s gorgeous and accents the bag very well with itâ€™s shiny gold hardware. The nametag even has a special message that says: “Monogramouflage Ã‰dition LimitÃ©e Takashi Murakami Louis Vuitton.â€
I wish Louis Vuitton had this bag in all the collections. Itâ€™s such a great bag to me, minus the hefty price. This bag retails for a steep $1,610 and will only go up in price one the next price increase comes our wayâ€¦ whenever that may be.
