A Bag Inspired by Gods? Louis Vuitton Monogram Olympe Nimbus

There is a new member to the UGLY BAG CLUB. Louis Vuitton is in a great position where the house has pricing power and there is no shortage of gals lining up for the next LV IT bag. But, is this pushing the limit a little? I want to say it looks cheap but at $2100 it is anything but cheap. Granted, I am almost certain lambskin is going to be soft and supple, and the tonal monogram embroidery is rather time consuming but what the hell.... This bag which measures 13.8"x 11"x 2.8" is named after Mount Olympus, home to the mighty Greek gods and the matted leather is to resemble the misty fog enveloping the mountain. The braided handle looks bulky, which I can imagine will just sit so well on my shoulder. The last straw is the name plate attached to the front of the bag. This bag is officially out of my shopping list, what about you?

  1. I really like this bag, I like that it is quite slouchy.

  3. I usually go for more structured bag, so the shape is not my usual like. I love the colour and the lambskin, but by this picture alone, I cannot quite find the connection between the bag and me so far...

  4. That bag is fugly! And the name plate is not only ludicrous but completely disjointed with the rest of the design!

  5. To be fair, I will go visit the boutique and see for myself if I am right or I shall take back every word I have written about this bag. : )

  6. Hmmm . . . I love a great gray bag, but this isn't one of them. It seems LV is trying to counter all the counterfeiters out there by mixing it up these days. I'm a little logo'd out, so this is an improvement on some of their more overtly monogrammed stuff.
    Speaking of copies, I know what you mean about the the Miu Miu dress being knocked off; it's inevitable, I suppose. That area of intellectual property is so tricky right now. xoxox CC
