Louis Vuitton Monogram Fetish Collection


For Fall/Winter 2011, Marc Jacobs explored the mysterious allure of fashion and fetish. The inexplicable obsession, strictness and discipline, and a play between modesty and provocation. The show’s ultimate and not-so-obscure object of desire was the iconic Lockit bag, created in 1958 and recreated in a myriad guises: this time in the familiar Monogram Canvas.

But it’s not the same classic Monogram Canvas we’ve all seen, owned, and loved. It’s reinterpreted with an ultra-glossy patent finish in line with the collection’s play on extremes of matte and shine. Key elements of the design, such as the padlock from which the Lockit takes its name, are also covered in Monogram canvas, with touches of ivory resin – for the zipper pull, for example – providing a delicate counterpoint. Discover the collection below.

Lockit Clutch

The sexiest of the bunch, Lockit Clutch in glossy Monogram Fetish canvas would make a striking accessory for any evening affair. With its bold removable chain and handcuff set (which implies a woman’s attachment to her bag), it’s definitely a stunner.

Monogram Fetish Lockit Clutch features a patent Monogram canvas covering on the handles, padlock and key bell, a refined resin zipper pull, ivory stitching threads and edge-dying, and a luxurious matte goatskin lining. The clutch measures 13.8″ x 7.5″ x 3.1″, available at Louis Vuitton stores for US$2420

Lockit BB

The diminutive Lockit BB is a charming reinterpretation of a Louis Vuitton icon. Measuring 9″ x 9.4″ x 3.9″, his adorable little bag in the shiny Monogram Fetish canvas enhances its classic shape, while a sumptuous matte goatskin lining provides a chic contrast.

Lockit BB features a patent Monogram canvas covering on the handles, padlock and key bell link, and a polyester zipper pull and key bell. Available at Louis Vuitton for US$1560.

Lockit

The icon itself reinvented in the glossy and glamorous Monogram Fetish Canvas, but still keeping its charm and timeless silhouette.

Monogram Fetish Lockit features a patent Monogram canvas covering on the handles, padlock and key bell, a refined resin zipper pull, ivory stitching threads and edge dying, and an interior zipped pocket. Lockit measures 13.8″ x 15.3″ x 6.3″, available at Louis Vuitton for US$3050.

Lockit Voyage

This oversized version of the classic Lockit is a stylish addition to any outfit. The Lockit Voyage makes a great city bag or a travel companion thanks to its roomy interior that is lined with luxurious matte goatskin.

Lockit Voyage features patent Monogram canvas covering on the handles, padlock, and key bell, a refined resin zipper pull, ivory stitching treads and edge-dying, and a couple of interior zipped and flat pockets. Lockit Voyage measures 22.8″ x 21.6″ x 8.3″, available at Louis Vuitton for US$5000.

    Hi, I was searching for special edition LV that are possibly unique and only selling in Japan, and I stumbled across your blog. I have to say your blog is very interesting and I admire your passion and dedication to maintain a blog that only talks about LV.

    Well, since I am here and I read that you are resourceful, I am wondering if you know if there are any websites out there that I could look at some of the Japan special edition LV bags for this or past year? Or if you know the specific design that I should check out when I am in Japan?

      Answer for Jamie, have made contact with the customer center in Tokyo today to find if there is a special piece for Japan market. Unfortunately thier answer was no. Perhaps, there is a special piece in China????

      Hi Jamie, had contact with customer centre in Tokyo Japan and asked them about special edition piece for Japanese market from current new collection, unfortunately no special edition piece this time in Japan.
      Enjoy your trip to Japan!

  • I love this bag, must have for fall!

    I am lusting after this line, but honestly, LV has the nerve to overcharge because it is a limited seasonal collection piece and has a slightly different finish and decided to use white thread instead of signature gold. REALLY?!?

    I don’t know if anyone’s noticed, but there has been less and less use of leather yet raised their prices at least 10% to their permanent collections. I understand economizing, but don’t give less and ask for more.

    I’ve actually boycotted LV for now because I can’t justify the price for such mediocre pieces. I guess you can’t win ’em all every season!

    I love this bag but hate the price, too high for a canvas bag!

    • Bonnie K

      I have the fetish lockit and inside is lined with goat leather, I think that’s why its expensive.

  • Raquel

    Does anyone know just how limited the Lockit will be? What has been the overall response? I ask because I purchased it but now having serious doubts about it for some reason but at the same time, I don’t want to regret returning it. I have until this Friday the 9th to decide.

      Hi Raquel,
      Well, you should really know about the Lockit show collection before you purchased it. It is a bit silly to ask people’s adive. I have seen so many people just like you and always regret when they purchase the new bags. Better to think more than twice before you buy anything!!!

      • Raquel

        Actually I have decided to keep the bag and do not regret it at all for that matter Sam. I don’t just buy bags on a whim as you have indicated and do think things out. My only reasoning for questioning the purchase was because of the other releases like the Desire and the Addiction Lockits. After seeing both IRL, I clearly made the right decison. I see no harm in asking what other peoples opinions are on here. Your comment was not necessary for the record.

    Hi Bengt

    I was really interested in buying one of the fetish lockits however am rather confused.
    In your blog about the Fetish collection, the bag key bells are shown as monogram canvas whilst the zipper pull is in ivory resin
    In the Bag names and prices blog, the key bell is ivory resin – does lv make both?

    Do they have different names/prices?
    Can you clarify pls?
    Thanks
