So...I am torn. It's between a Celine micro luggage tote in smooth leather in black or the Louis Vuitton Montaigne mm in empriente leather in noir. Stock photos for reference. First one is Celine and second one is LV. I like both of them!! And can't decide [emoji30] IMG_1486845841.041339.jpg IMG_1486845855.275236.jpg

I think the LV just kinda bends in that place naturally when you have the middle compartment zipped. My choice would be the Montaigne; if I remember correctly, it has a long strap and the empreinte leather wears like iron. The Luggage looks dated and it's pretty much all open space, minimal organization and safety.

+1 I think the luggage has had its moment. The LV is beautiful and extremely well made. I'd go for the Montaigne.

...all very good points...I really like the Celine's robotic frame and the LV empriente leather. I am missing one good classic black bag and both are lovely. [emoji53] and in the same price category.

I think I would go with whatever seems more practical - the empriente seems it! Celine for me loses out to Chanel due to formal look

There is much less sag and more structure in the mm and bb size Montaigne. The one in the pic looks like the gm size to me. It really is a beautiful bag in the bb and mm size. You don't hear many complaints about this style in the LV clubhouse sub forum.

I am late to the party but I would have chosen the Céline too!
I have seen both in stores or in consignment stores and the Montaigne leather is not as durable....

I'm late replying too but you made a great choice. The micro luggage is a fabulous bag, one of my all time favourites. Congratulations and enjoy [emoji4]
