monograms



I've been interested in monograms a lot lately. Not sure why. Monogrammed towels, vessels, luggage, stationary, etc. I've always been a bit turned off by the classic Louis Vuitton monogram, mainly because so many shiny new LV monogram bags are often seen carried on the shoulders of velour-wearing bobble heads. The vintage luggage is quite appealing though, we saw a bunch at the flea market in Paris (at equally intriguing price$) but what fun you can have on their website, personalizing some luggage with your own name and different coloured stripes!

I did some in red, but I like the kelly green and pale blue too... not that it matters, as personalized luggage is not in my near future!

i take lv monogram as a clever pattern, like it, and dont understand lv controversy around it. btw that kleenex thing on twitter, doesn't sound green... :/

I know, but for me sometimes it is hard to see past what others have done to this pattern. Yes, that kleenex thing is ridiculous.
