Ladies: Dipping into the Men's Collection... (and vice versa)

I thought this might be an interesting topic. Ladies - have you ever gotten anything for yourself from the Men's Collection? If so, what? (Guys - some Women's Collection pieces that you've collected over the years?)

I personally haven't bought any (yet), but I'm still a LV newbie. I think the Sac Plat PM that I got for Chinese New Year is quite androgenous though.

I don't have anything particular from the Men's Collection on my wishlist, but I'm super drawn to the Damier Graphite & Cobalt canvases! (I'm just not convinced about the nylon-looking shoulder straps that all the men's bags seem to come with...) Maybe I will get a SLG in the near future?

How about you guys? :smile:

All of my bags are from the men's lines (except my Keepalls which are of course unisex) but I did own a Musette, which was from the women's collection. Many of my SLGs though are, according to LV, women's!

The fabric straps on the men's bags are actually very comfortable and very well made. At first I was concerned that they might fray over time, but I've had no issues with mine! :smile:

That's good to know re the fabric straps - do you happen to know what they are made of? (is it nylon like I thought?) :smile:

I am female. Almost all my bags I prefer from the Men's line.
Macassar/ Keeplall 45, Kiton, Porte Documents Jour, Palk Backpack, District MM
Grafite/ Mick mm, Zippy Organizer wallet
Tobago leather carryall in yellow and black from 10 yrs ago.
I still have not worn all these bags yet, but I love that they are different and you do not see them on everyone!!!
I also have a bunch of Toiletry cases from the men's line. I bought the new cobalt but had to return because the strap was just way too long(Greenwhich).
I definitely recommend men's line for Women!!
I have no clue as how to post pics, thats why I never started a thread.

And all my SLGs are women's except the cles which is unisex?

DE international wallet (women's)
Cosmetic pouch rouge grenadine and DE (women's)
TP26 mono and DE (women's)

I'm a guy. I have a Speedy 40! I don't really use it as a purse tho, more of an overnight bag.
Also Monogram key pouch(clè) that I use daily. It's technically from the women't line.
And a Kusama Zippy(green) and Cosmetic Pouch(blue) that are always in my Mick PM. I love the colors on them. I always get compliments on them.
And I guess technically my Kusama Keepall is from the women's line as well. I think all the Kusama items were women's? But it seems very unisex to me.

I think that's it for my women's items? But I am not afraid to shop from both lines.

Oops. Edited to add my Toiletry Pouch 26! I use it for battery chargers, phone cords, and random items when I travel too.

I'm a guy, and own stuff from the mens line. I have a Keepall 55 Damier Ebene though, and I suppose that is unisex. I also have the new Damier Ebene Bleu Pocket organiser and Im not sure if that is womens..

It's great to know about everybody's unique collection! I am determined to get a bag from the men's collection (since I'm obsessed with Damier Graphite) - would be great for business school :biggrin:
