For Fall 2009, Louis Vuitton introduces the Monogram Macassar collection, the first permanent Monogram line dedicated to men as seen from the Fall/Winter 2009 men’s runway show.
The line was inspired and named after the beautiful hazel-brown and black striped Macassar Ebony-a type of exotic wood used in making luxurious furnishings-the pairing of black matte leather with the iconic Monogram canvas evokes a sense of timelessness and elegance. Each piece from the line features a shiny palladium hardware, with a burgundy canvas lining that brings out the masculine side of the Monogram canvas.
The Monogram Macassar collection of luggage and city bags is available in nine striking pieces.. Check out the bags right after the jump…
