One of the new releases for 2014 (along with the Montaigne), the Marais – named after the historic district in Paris – in the iconic Monogram canvas is a modern update of the classic bowling bag. Its structured yet supple shape exudes femininity while its casual chic style and practicality make it an ideal companion for work or for daily excursions in the city. Just put everything inside, carry it by hand or elbow, and you’re ready to go.
Functionality is the main essence of the Marais. It features a secure and well-organized interior as it features three zippered compartments, the center one offers generous space and a flat pocket. Also the exterior front compartment has a large flat pocket (for the BB) or a double smartphone pocket (for the MM). Other details include two-way zipper with padlock, leather key bell, shiny golden brass hardware, natural cowhide leather trims, burgundy-colored microfiber lining, and protective bottom studs.
Marais comes in two sizes, the diminutive BB (11.4″ x 7.1″ x 6.7″) and an all-around MM (15.7″ x 9.4″ x 7.9″). Available at Louis Vuitton stores for US$1980 and US$2130 for the BB and MM respectively.
