Vintage Louis Vuitton Monceau

  1. Hey Guys,
    I just bought an LV Monceau on eBay for a really good price!
    I am really looking forward to it.
    Before I bought it, I checked everywhere and could barely find any informations about it, even here! Does one of you has one? Or can you give me some details about it?
     
  2. I have one! What are you looking to know?

  3. It was a very popular bag in the 1990s.

  4. I really like the monceau, the Pochette Metis reminds me of a modern reinterpretation of it.
     
  5. That’s exactly what it is.
     
  6. Your thoughts on it, maybe a few photos?
    Basically everything you can tell me
     
  7. How much did you get it for?

  10. A lot of used ones have a sticky pocket making the inside zip useless. A lot of used bags are missing the keys which is not that big of a deal because you can order them from LV if it matters. It's a very sturdy well made bag. 20150510_084547-1.jpeg

  12. Oh I didn't you coule order the key again! That's good to know! Do they still replace a sticky pocket?
    What are you using it mostly for?
     
  13. I don't know if they repair the pockets. I've never needed a repair on my bag. It usually happens in humid climates. Maybe yours won't have that problem.

  14. Your Monceau looks richly fabulous. What products do you use on it? I wore my Epi Monceau to a business conference this week and she was quite a beacon. I don't get too much attention when I wear my Mono PM but my Reverse PM draws quite a bit .
    Those who aren't LVoers may think it's fake and those in the know are wondering how did I snag one.

  15. @bag345addict - I removed the sticky in my pocket down to the soft grey flannel interlining. Although the grey fabric is surprisingly resilient, I don't plan to use the pocket. However if I do inadvertently put something in the pocket there's no risk of the item getting damaged.
