Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram, My Very Own Monogram
June 2, 2009 by J.T.
Louis Vuitton has always been an expert when it comes to travelling in luxury. And over the years, LV has extended that craftsmanship to produce a vast array of fine leather goods, adding a touch of chic to every imaginable accessory one would ever need.
Take for example the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag and the Keepall travel bag, these two classic bags have become iconic luxury staples that everyone simply wants and needs. And while these two iconic bags have been around for quite some time, they still tend to attract the most attention, especially since they’re often re-invented by Louis Vuitton Artistic Director Marc Jacobs every season.
Since 2008, the brand has continued to marry tradition & modernity by offering its personalization service called “Mon Monogram”. Always keeping to its roots, Louis Vuitton has continuously offered the possibility to personalize one’s accessory, a tradition that dates back for over century. This personalization happens by way of a painting service that was once only available to Trunks and hard-sided luggage. This made to order technique is now available for the Speedy and the Keepall.
More importantly, the Mon Monogram personalization makes your bag unique. A set of two-tone initials of up to three letters, either vertical or diagonal stripes, or through a combination of both initials and stripes that are chosen from a range of 17 different colors resulting in more than 200 million possible combinations per bag. And given the popularity of the Speedy and Keepall, the Mon Monogram service will certainly make such iconic bags stand out from the rest of the crowd.
The Mon Monogram will also solve those awkward moments at airport carousels where someone else picks up your Keepall thinking it’s their own (unless of course they have your initials and know your favorite colors). Mon Monogram is available in all Speedy Keepall travel bag sizes.
And starting as of June 1st, 2009, this service will also be extended to the iconic Pégase 55 suitcase in both classic and business versions. The stores that offer “Mon Monogram” (over 100 stores in all) feature a computer so the clients can create the “Mon Monogram” of their dream and visualize exactly how their bag will look.
Once their choice has been made their order is then sent directly to one of the Louis Vuitton workshops where their personalised unique Monogram bag is created and hand assembled.
The fabrication of the Mon Monogram can take from six to eight weeks.
