Timless elegance is personified in the petite shape of the Monceau malette. Made of supple Monogram over canvas, its compact dimensions open up to reveal many useful pockets and compartments, making it an ideal candidate to welcome in our Louis Vuitton diaries series ! 

It was in Milan, in the Autumn of 2015, that I discovered the versatility of such an iconic piece of collection that is (unfortunately!) not carried by the Maison de Couture anymore... Your best chance at landing your hands on the Monceau these days would be to try every single vintage reseller you know in the hopes of finding the coveted handbag before someone else does. Whenever looking for a very rare match, LUXUCA in Montreal is my number one destination, selling and authenticating luxury designer handbags and accessories that's either new, pre-owned or vintage, below retail prices.

The minute I saw the Monceau malette, I was immediately seduced by its sturdy look and vintage appeal. The unique design of Monogram canvas matched with elegant pleats makes this a versatile day-to-night bag with style. It also boasts a matching leather strap for short-shoulder, long-shoulder and cross-body carry; a total arm candy upgrade ! I didn't really need to think twice before picking up that big boy as it offers both on-trend design and flawless functionality in one single lightweight and compact bag. The Monceau malette compliments nicely any chic update on officewear or can dress-up even the most playful ensemble such as this Blugirl Folies owl print number, as seen in the images above and below ;)
