    Default Sick and tired of those monogram LVs!

    Anyone else than me who are sick and tired of there monogram LVs`? They just look so boring and also you are strotting around like an advertising girl with it.

    I love the epi noir madeleine for example (just bought one) but whats up with the monogram, does it feel good knowing everybody knows it's a LV or whats the deal...

    Eh, I don't know.

    I love the look of a patina'd Monogram Speedy, but not enough to buy one.
    I also really love the Vernis in Pomme d'Amour, and I guess that counts as monogram.

    Thankfully, it's not really as bad as it was - I don't see nearly as much LV monogram or as often, as one did 5 or 6 years ago. At the same token, while I prefer Damier Ebene to the Classic Monogram, I don't really care enough about LV to even notice monogram anymore; doesn't turn my head or turn my stomach.

    At the same token, I'm not really one for obvious, blatant logos and branding - different strokes for different folks, I guess. *shrug.*

    It's a love / hate relationship. I admire, but I don't really carry alot of signature bags.

    Some signature bags make me want to puke.
    I just wished that they would be more subtle.

    I'm sick of seeing it everywhere! It's getting too common. Luxury goods used to be something only the upper class can afford, now almost everyone can (with online shopping, ebay etc)!

    I love my monogram bags. I love the classic look of an LV monogram bag. I prefer the smaller bags like my tivoli pm and speedy 25. My larger bag (galliera pm) I got in azur. I think that everyone should carry what they love. For the price we are paying we need to get something we will be happy with :)

    My first designer bag was a mono Gucci bag...more than 20 years ago. I had not bought another mono bag in all that time and have not carried that Gucci in years. I am a die hard Jimmy Choo fan with a few Bottega Veneta, Pradas and Chanel, but all of the sudden I fell in love with a mono LV...go figure!

    I prefer brands with small logos (if there must be some or one). I do love my LV Tivoli GM though. I know what you mean.

    LOL it's funny you say that in a bag forum however with that said it truly is to each his own. I don't own any LVs yet. I hope to someday. I really want to get one before I am 50 and by then I want Chanel.

    At least your not in my situation where all you see are wall to wall monogram Coach bags...ugh.

    These days all designer handbags with logos are everywhere. I personally love the monogram it's classic and never gets old to me but I also like designers like Rebecca minkoff. It just depends on how you wear it.

    I could never get tired of the monograms... Plus, it's not like you wear the monogram canvas everyday. If you're a purse addict you'll wear a different one each day, like I do, and when you're one step towards forgetting about that collection, you remember...and get your hands on some bag you own in your closet.
    I admit I love the Empreinte collection a lot more than the Monogram Canvas, but heck, the first one was recently released and I didn't have time to get tired of it YET.

    It is funny that you talk about getting tired of something that has been around for OVER 100 years. If you're tired of it, that means you know nothing about the brand and its rich history.

    Just because something has been around for over a hundred years doesn't mean it's made for everyone. Pendleton has been around for over a hundred years, does that mean everyone is a fan of the plaid flannel look? Of course not. I think what tnoivles was saying is that she's not sick of the brand itself, but rather the over popularity of the monogram signature.

    For me, I like Louis Vuitton shoes and accessories. But when I browse, I'm not looking for something with the monogram "LV", I personally like the Epi, Damier and Sofia Coppola collections. Although in some cases it does depend on the bag.
