To a non LV lover, the mono and ebene will just look like 2 brown bags. But I think they are totally different. I have speedies in both prints. Go for it!sophiae- true. I was worried about color transfer. I showed the ebene to a couple of friends and they thought it looked too much like my mono. I was thinking about getting the zippy wallet but I think I am going to hold off and get the damier ebene first!
