Monogram bags may wax and wane with customers, but they'll always be a huge part of many brands' sales. Monograms easily identify brands to onlookers, and many customers first find their way to love designers by recognizing the monogram; it's an easy association. I was one of these people: my first Coach bag was monogram, and my first Louis Vuitton was as well.
Over the past few years, there's a major push away from classic monograms and logos, but many brands are putting a focus back on their signatures. Louis Vuitton continuously remakes its classic LV monogram with seasonal interpretations that lures so many in.
The Louis Vuitton Monogram Infrarouge is the latest interpretation of the LV monogram, which features a black background with a rouge LV monogram print. There have been so many interpretations of the Monogram canvas, but this option feels bold and new.
Louis Vuitton Monogram Infrarouge was first spotted on the Spring 2015 runway, and while I vaguely remembered it, I rediscovered it this past week and fell for it. The bold black and red variation looks stunning on the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle, which has become a fan favorite. There are two other bags currently available in the print, but if I had it my way, I'd get the Petite Malle in Monogram Infrarouge and call it a day. Prices range from $3,550 to $3,950 via Louis Vuitton.
