LOUIS VUITTON MONOGRAM CANVAS JUNGLE DOTS BAG COLLECTION

Louis-Vuitton-Monogram-Canvas-Jungle-Dots-Bag-Collection

Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Jungle Dots Speedy 30 Bag
Size: 15.7′ x 10.6′ x 5.9′ (L x H x W) inches
Price: $1370 USD, €980 euro

The iconic Monogram Canvas gets a little twist again for this season. The French fashion house decides to mix it with the most-recent ‘Jungle Dots’ print to create and wild and cool look.

Here’s what you need to know…

The Jungle Dots Collection is purely made for the spring summer, which is why it’s also called the Palm Springs Collection. The Palm trees are carefully painted in pink and placed behind the red-bold dots.

The pattern is refreshing and joyful, the dots evokes wild and tropical animals passing through the palm leaves. The print is very feminine and perfect for a trendy bright summer style.

Love it.

This print is featured on iconic handbags like the speedy bag but as well as on small accessories like wallets. We’ve even spotted the wallet on chain.

While Louis Vuitton made the Palm trees pink, there’s also another color available – green. So green Palm trees adorned with monogram canvas. I am not sure whether this style is practical for all seasons, but its certainly qualified for the summer.

In nature, colors mean a lot. Some insects with bright purple color are warning the enemies to stay away because they’re dangerous.

The jaguar has black dots all over its body; when you accidentally meet one, make sure to run away – quickly.

But anyways, Louis Vuitton proudly presents a new print for this season and it’s called the ‘Jungle Dots’. So carry these babies to give a statement – I am confident, strong and dangerous.

The Jungle Dots Bag Collection ranges from iconic handbags like the Speedy Bag to the tiniest accessories like the Zippy Wallet. The colors are bright but beautiful and remarkable – red background with dark purple dots are going to have people eyeing on you.

But that’s okay; I am companied with my friend Louis Vuitton. Please meet my bag.

And for those that can’t immediately see (because it’s designed transparent) – if you look closely and with attention, you can notice the Monogram Vernis print attached additionally on the top of the Jungle Dots. It’s completely transparent, so it’s understandable if you don’t recognize it instantly.

So that’s the secret weapon.

These beautiful bags do come with a price tag. Let us share the details…
