Bag of the Week: Louis Vuitton Montaigne Van Gogh Bag

The most captivating offering from Louis Vuitton in the year 2014 was the Montaigne. The bag promptly became an added reason for fashionistas to adore the brand even more. Holding all the promises of a functional hit, this style is named after Paris’ high fashion avenue, Montaigne. It has a structured exterior combined with well-organised interiors, making it an apt work bag. Chiefly made from the brand’s signature materials, Monogram canvas and Monogram Empreinte leather, it comes in three standard sizes BB, MM and GM.

Our pick this week is an excellent example of Louis Vuitton’s creative instincts and their inquisitiveness for art. The label collaborated with New York-based artist Jeff Koons in 2017 to curate a unique line of handbags and accessories, called Masters. A conspicuous progeny of this collaboration is the Louis Vuitton Montaigne Van Gogh bag.

The Collaboration – Masters

The collection features beautiful visions from Koon’s ‘Gazing Ball Paintings’ which is a series of re-creations of the masterpieces made by icons like Da Vinci, Titian, Rubens, Fragonard and Van Gogh. These reproductions are manifested elegantly on Louis Vuitton’s iconic handbags. The bags also carry the name of the original artists along with Koon’s initials, exhibited as a modified LV logo. This range is a sincere effort by the maison to connect fashion with culture and history.

The Bag in Detail:

This magnificent creation is a pleasure to the eyes with its breathtaking exterior enhanced by the influential Dutch painter, Van Gogh’s Wheatfield with Cypresses painting. The painting according to him was his best summer painting, depicting golden fields, azure skyline and a towering Cypresses tree. This leather bag is accented with signature LV Monogram details all over in shiny gold-tone. The rear is boldly emblazoned with the artist’s name, and its generous leather interiors come with his biography and portrait. Finally, this utilitarian beauty is styled with twin handles and a detachable shoulder strap that allows you to parade it on the shoulder.
