One of the sensational pieces from Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2009 menswear collection, the Monogram Keepall Revelation is a stunner. The bag is distinctive with its raised Monogram pattern on soft black, grained veal leather which is inspired by scarification. Its is a permanent body modification which involves scratching, etching, or some sort of superficial cutting or incision to the skin. The practice is usually carried out as a rite of passage, common to African tribes. This eye-catching bag is a must-have for short breaks or for just toting around the city thanks to its practical size.
As mentioned above, Monogram Keepall Revelation is crafted from black, supple grained veal leather which is injected with silicone to raise and imprint the monogram (an info shared to us by reader Craig Richie). In the inside, the lining is also made from grained veal leather, but this time in rich burgundy-ish color. The bag also features an interior zipped pocket, D-ring for attaching keys, a removable and adjustable black leather shoulder strap, a luggage tag also in black leather, and brilliant silver brass hardware.
Monogram Revelation Keepall 45 measures 17.7″ x 10.6″ x 7.9″ and is available at Louis Vuitton for $4040. More pics after the jump…
