Louis Vuitton Louise and Vivienne Bags: How Logo Can You Go?

Louis Vuitton Louise and Vivienne Bags

Check out the latest incarnation of the famed and long-lived LV logo. It has evolved from the allover monogram to an unabashed blast of precision-perfect hardware. Look familiar? It reminds me of the YSL logo clasp. The resemblance is actually uncanny, as it’s essentially the same concept. But something about Louis Vuitton’s initialized closure reads just a tad more grown-up.

I have yet to take the plunge because I like my logos as small or indiscernible as possible. Then again, there’s something to be said for wearing your brand on your sleeve. Or on the front flap of your bag. It’s modern and stylish in a loud, tongue-in-cheek, in-your-face kind of way. The Louise shoulder bag in patent or flat leather and clutch form; the Vivienne LV long or compact wallet and color-blocked satchel: there is no shortage of styles, to say the least. The hardware is so big, so overt and even obnoxious that the final result is kind of fresh and fun. Wait, did I just talk myself into this? What do you think of it? Is it time (yet again) to make no apologies for your brand of choice? Louis Vuitton Louise and Vivienne prices range from $1,460-$4,150.

    I like YSL’s version more, looks classier then the Louis Vuitton version.
    I would greatly appreciate it if you could discuss the quality in terms of craftsmanship and materials in addition to the design. It would be very handy to know when deciding between bags that are similar. Thanks

    The quality of Saint laurent is not as good as the lv. I had a similar issue and I went with the lv. I wished both boutiques on the same day and compared them.
