About a year ago Louis Vuitton introduced a new camera style bag called the Saintogne Bag and it was an instant hit for the brand. The bag’s success is truly not that big of a surprise, as putting a fresh and modern Louis Vuitton take on classic bag structures has worked very well for the brand in the past. Not to mention, camera bags have been wildly popular the last few seasons, popping up amongst almost every contemporary and premier designer’s assortments.
For summer 2019 Louis Vuitton has introduced another camera bag to its lineup, and Damier Ebene fans will be very happy. Similar in shape, size and structure, the Louis Vuitton Santa Monica Bag now comes in Damier Ebene canvas with smooth cowhide leather in addition to monogram vernis, which was released for Spring 2019.
Loyal fans of Louis Vuitton will remember that the Santa Monica Bag used to exist as a clutch bag, and Vuitton’s website states that this bag is a new version of the compact, casual-chic Santa Monica bag. It’s comparable in size to the Saintogne bag, and with overall dimensions of 8.7 L x 5.9 H x 2.8 D, it’s a great size for everyday. Inside there is a slit pocket, and the bag can be hand carried via the top handle or worn cross body with the long strap. Purchase now via Louis Vuitton for $1,650.
