One of the hardest parts of building and maintaining a brand is that once public perception shifts from “this thing is great” to “this thing was great,” it’s always difficult (and sometimes impossible) to turn back the tides. The aging appeal of Louis Vuitton‘s famous monogram was one of the big reasons Marc Jacobs left the brand and Nicolas Ghesquiere, LV’s current creative director, signed on, and in his three years at its helm, Ghesquiere has done a lot to reenergize tastemakers’ love for Louis. His latest line, called Louis Vuitton Monogram Colors, is one of his best efforts yet.

Monogram Colors takes the iconic brown monogram canvas and recasts it on a trio of simple bags trimmed with swathes of leather in two or three contrasting colors per bag. All the bags currently a part of the collection are in the Tuileries family: the large Tuileries Hobo, with a single, short shoulder strap; the medium-size Tuileries Besace, with both a short shoulder strap and long crossbody strap; and the Tuileries Handbag, which is a medium-size satchel.

Prices for the bags aren’t available on Louis Vuitton’s website quite yet, but a number of close-up modeling shots of all three bags in several colorways are, and you can check them out all below.

I love these! If they don’t stick a silly price on them I’ll most likely get one.

I like the satchel version. LV sure produces a lot of new styles per year. I am going to look into the pricing of the satchel and see if it seems in line with the look and materials of the bag.

A bag ban is when you prohibit yourself from buying any more bags for a while. It’s for when you have done way too much damage and need to curb yourself. haha! I think we’ve all been there. 😉

Ah yes “bag ban”, been there. Down to one bag a year from two. Much better pace.

$2490, $2230 & $2080 US. Not bad, considering the fact that LV likes to introduce new bags at ridiculous prices. These prices make more sense but I still don’t know if I like them. I need to see them in person to decide.

OMG, I am so in love with these bags!! And I am heading to Paris in March so will purchase one there! These are fabulous (can’t think of a better word!).

I like this shape better than the Speedys-it’s more slenderizing when carrying on shoulder. I’d like to have the one with black trim.

I like the handbag. The satchel looks really big. Too big to be an everyday bag at least for me. The strap also appears to be very wide. I have broad shoulders, and even those things don’t stay put.
According to the LV site, the small satchel is $2,080, the larger one is $2230, and the handbag is $2490.
It’s a cool idea, but I will definitely have to pass. Is there anyone else like that? I oftentimes find myself liking LV bags but not enough to purchase.

totally agree. Don’t know how many times I went into a boutique WANTING to buy but never finding something I connected with enough to actually buy.
