Do you remember the year 2008? It was the year that Britney Spears made her comeback with the release of her sixth album, Circus. It was also the year that the Twilight series premiered and Jay-Z married Beyonce. Talk about throwbacks. 2008 was also the year that Louis Vuitton released one of its super popular late 2000s bags, The Tivoli. The Tivoli came in two versions, a PM and GM, both available in classic Monogram Canvas.
It had a top zip, and the PM version was a great alternative to the Speedy for those who wanted more anonymity. In my hometown it was a bag that I remember a couple of my classmates carrying—it was one I lusted after and I remember the popularity of it at the time, seeing it toted around town and carried at the local mall by stroller moms in the larger version. While I remember this bag clearly thanks to its easy, yet stylish silhouette, the top zip with its little gold disk charms on the zipper and pleated canvas front body, after looking back at this bag further it seems the Tivoli wasn’t as popular with the celeb set for some reason.
When I think back to this bag I instantly remember its popularity (tPF was, and is!, active with love for the Tivoli), and its run at Louis Vuitton is not to be ignored. Though it only remained in the House’s lineup for not even a decade, coming to a production halt back in 2014/2015, it was a beloved bag during its run. I still love this bag though and wish it were around today. Its longer handles made wear easy, and the larger version, the GM, also featured adjustable straps. The Tivoli is readily available on the resale market for those who still adore it too and below are some of the few celebs seen spotting this style.
So tell me LVaholics, do you remember this late 2000s icon? Would you like to see it return?
