The Material Boy #126
Louis Vuitton Monogramouflage Treillis Tote
Someone help me! Before I can get the Gucci Guccissima Leather Tote off my 'lust' list...in comes another bag that I am drooling all over again. I think I should be 'honorary member' for Baked Beans Boys Club...cos' I should be eating baked beans for the rest of the year. Darn...me and my wandering eyes.
I was not impressed at the start when I first laid eyes on pictures of this Louis Vuitton Treillis Tote. The proportion of the bag was kinda squarish and I feel it is not big enough for my tall frame. But today, while check other bag blogs, I was bombarded with a blogger posting about this bag. The post by www.louisvuittonlover.blogspot.com shows a fellow LV fan showing off his Treillis tote and that look huge and super cool. Especially when he is wearing his camo cargos. Hahaha.
Next, a fellow blogger whom I checked his blog regularly, DeluxeDuck (I forgot your name...please pardon me!) posted his new Treillis purchase and I was able to see the detailing on the bag. As does beautiful jacket makes the man, detailing make the bag! I love the dog tag on the bag, very cool. It says 'Monogramouflage, Édition Limitée, Takashi Murakami, Louis Vuitton' in perforated style typeface as per the military font type. Very cool! And the multiple internal pockets is a dear to have for getting organised. I also like the leather trimmings on the handles and last of all, the nice little D ring for hooking any bag charms! The fabric print actually look better up close:-) One thing that I thought would make the bag even more perfect is to use the topography lining they developed for spring summer 2008 bags and use it on this bag. That will be so appropriate. Makes it more 'military mission' themed:-) Dun you agree?
The price is on the high side for a mostly fabric tote. But it's limited edition..so that warrants a collector's price.
I bet this bag is on a long waiting list. Me want....but I cannot buy any more bags now...:-(
LV, can I help you to blog all about your bags for the rest of the year and you let me have this bag?:-P Wishful thinking on my part. We shall see. My birthday is coming up...who knows:-P
