For as long as I can remember my family has taken the usual trips to Nantucket, Cape Cod, and the Hamptons area. It was something we did as a family and many times it was for 4th of July or Memorial Day or just some other long weekend. There is a point to my blabbing on about my childhood. The Louis Vuitton Monogram Mini Initials Keepall for men reminds me of my vacations spent in the beautiful areas of Nantucket, Cape Cod and of course the Hamptons. I saw this new release by Louis Vuitton and my mind began to automatically reminisce to my younger years of preppy times in the Northern Atlantic region of the States. The keepall reminds me of sail boat rides, picnics on the beach, tea time, parites set up by my parents, fresh fruit, and of course fireworks. I just see this bag and think of that hot preppy beach boy that stayed right next to us every summer. You know that kind: blond shaggy hair, blue eyes, tan, killer bod, etc. Ahhh those were the days.
The keepall is newly reinvented based on the classic Men’s Keepall for this Men’s Spring/Summer show. The bag is made of a simple cotton and linen Monogram Mini Initials canvas and shows off leather handles and of course the rope shoulder strap. What I find to be the most attention grabbing is not only the rope shoulder straps but also the vintage inspired silkscreened “V”. The trim of the bag is none else than calfskin, including the handles and shoulder pad. The inside of the keepall is lined with polyester and cotton and contains an inside pocket for a Blackberry, PalmOne, etc. The bag also features golden-finished brass hardware, a removable rope and leather shoulder strap, removable leather ID tag, and for travel purposes it easily folds flat. The Louis Vuitton Monogram Mini Initials Keepall measures 18.4″ x 10.8″ x 19.2″ and can be yours (or a Father’s Day Gift for your hubby) at eLuxury for $2070.
