Ahhh…the iconic Louis Vuitton Monogram Print. With the many bags that this print is on, I’m sure you’ve seen it everywhere. But what I would like to know is, do you love it or despise it? It’s a design with great history and is known all over the world. So I’m here to speak about it and get your input!
Did you know? Did you know that the Monogram print wasn’t the first design that Louis Vuitton created? Although it’s know for it’s classic look, the first print made by LV was their Damier design! Damier was made in 1888-1889 and was a huge hit. But the Monogram came out around 1896. Why? Well when the brand became famous, the Damier checkered print was looked upon as a easy design to copy. Thus many counterfeit trunks were made to copy the beloved design. So in order for the fashion house to regulate copiers, they made the Monogram print in hopes to deplete that issue. Either way, both designs were re-introduced in the many years that passed and are still adored by handbag users today. And I’m sure Louis Vuitton knew that not only would it stop counterfeiters but it would a beautiful design that people would love and would last a lifetime.
However, many people have different opinions about the look. Some people think its to gaudy or that there’s too much going on…and some people absolutely fan over the design.
I for one, love the Monogram print. Even though it’s not the first design by LV, it’s still very classic. I think it will last forever, both in the boutiques and in the re-sale market. They’ve created different variations of the print, and in love it when a brand takes a classic and plays with it to create new products.
I also love the vachetta leather that comes with the Monogram print. It adds additional character to the piece and I love watching the leather age and darken over time.
Don’t get me wrong though, I love all the prints that the fashion house puts out there. But the Monogram print will always be my favorite and go-to design. I also love how they incorporated it into their leathers as a stamp…truly beautiful.
So what are your thoughts on it? Do you love it or hate it? Or are you one of those who can adore it but doesn’t know what to pair it with? I’d love to know!
