I’ve been very interested with the Monogram Collage Lutèce since it exited the runway of Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2008 show. And I even got more excited after the news that it’s going to be released this season. And now, it’s here!
Lutèce is named after Lutetia Parisiorum, the ancient Roman city where Paris now stands. And with it’s exotic materials, Lutèce is definitely a key collector’s bag this season. Lutèce is crafted from sheepskin leather, lambskin lining and handcrafted collage lettering made from different materials and finishings such as resin, brass, python and more. The bag also has karung snake and polyester trimmings. with and engraved vintage Louis Vuitton silver lock and a fine python strap to carry on the shoulder or by hand.
With all those rare, lavish, and exotic materials, there’s no wonder that Lutèce is very expensive. This 15.5″ x 9″ x 1.4″ bag is made upon request and costs $9,750 with 50% down payment. Louis Vuitton stores are now starting to receive orders for this bag so if you’re interested, be sure to have $4,875 in hand.
Can’t afford the bag? Why not have a scarf?
