For over 150 years, Special Orders have been a tradition at Louis Vuitton, who take pride in fulfilling a traveler’s most exceptional requests like helping them to satisfy a specific need, express their individuality, or realise a dream.
Louis Vuitton has always offered personalisation services such as hot-stamping one’s initials onto a wide selection of soft leathergoods and accessories or hand-painting one’s initials onto hard-sided luggage. Taking this one step further, Louis Vuitton is proposing a new way to personalise a monogram bag and really make it one’s own.
Since 2008, Louis Vuitton proposes a new personalisation concept: Mon Monogram. With Mon Monogram, it is possible to create and own a truly unique bag by personalising one of two Louis Vuitton icons – the Speedy handbag and the Keepall travel bag and both of these in all sizes. And starting on 1 June 2009, this service will also be extended to the iconic Pégase 55 suitcase in both classic and business versions.
Creating a Mon Monogram piece. Mon Monogram Pégase.
A set of two-tone initials of up to three letters, either vertical or diagonal stripes, or a combination of both initials and stripes can be chosen from a range of 17 different colours resulting in more than 200 million possible combinations per bag.
Customers can visualise exactly how their bag will look via an in-store computer simulation. Once their choice has been made their order is then sent directly to one of the Louis Vuitton workshops where their personalised unique Monogram bag is created and hand assembled. The fabrication of the Mon Monogram can take from six to eight weeks. Mon Monogram personalization is currently offered in around 100 Louis Vuitton flagship stores worldwide.
