“I think it is an amazing brand, I love that it has got such a heritage and it has been around for such a long time. I particularly like their luggage and all the trunks” - Alexa Chung at the London Louis Vuitton New Bond Street Maison Opening.
I just received my latest acquisition yesterday. It is a Louis Vuitton President Classeur Monogram briefcase.
Now some of you may think I am crazy to have so many briefcases in my collection.. but I absolutely love them.
The epitome of briefcases is the LOUIS VUITTON PRESIDENT.
There is an even larger LOUIS VUITTON PRESIDENT GRANDE but that is getting ridiculous!
The Louis Vuitton President is the epitome of style and class. YES it is getting a bit dated (being a hard case item). But it really is a classic.
I must say that in comparison to my Louis Vuitton Diplomate briefcase I ACTUALLY PREFER the Diplomate.. this is for a number of reasons:-
1) the diplomate is a much more usable size (the president is getting a bit big and grand being 1 larger in all areas than the diplomate).
2) the diplomate has a pen holder which sadly is missing from the monogram version.. the taiga version does also have this pen holder.
3) my diplomate is in taiga leather.. the LV monogram is a bit showy! . But it is perfect for a collector like me.
4) the president is too heavy! Being made of wood it is heavy. The diplomate is no light weight either.. but the president is very heavy as it is larger than the diplomate.
Personally I love my President. It is everything I thought it would be.
