Louis Vuitton First LVook: Monogram Raspail

Now that the excitement of the Fall Winter fashion show has died down a bit, let us talk about what's coming out this week. Slated to be released on March 15, the Monogram Raspail is the latest offering for the Core Collection Line. It will come in 3 sizes PM $1060, MM $1190 and GM $1320. Even though the shape is very much like the Neverfull, the bag is structured with a zippered top. The rolled handles are long so it's exclusively a shoulder bag. It also has a signature handle fastener. I do LVoe the shape of the tabs that attach to the body. The interior lining is that rich burgundy colour, as opposed to the classic brown. I am surprised that the name is not akin to Totally or Delightful. All I can find about Raspail is that its a district in Paris and there was a François-Vincent (January 25, 1794 - January 7, 1878) who was a French chemist, naturalist, physiologist, and socialist politician. Also, this is not the first time that this name was used by LV. Below is a pic of a vintage Monogram bag of the same name. LVoe it!!!
