Inspired by Marilyn Monroe, this Monogram Multicolore from Louis Vuitton is utterly beautiful.
This is a 100% authentic Louis Vuitton Marilyn
in black multicolore monogram and vachette with golden brass hardware.
The Louis Vuitton Monogram Multicolore collection was first introduced in spring 2003 by Japanese pop artist, Takashi Murakami who decided to revamp the traditional monogram toile and give it a splash of color. He created a new vibrant canvas pallet with 33 silk-screened colors. Together with Marc Jacobs, the Multicolore line became a huge success and is still highly sought after today.
The Monogram Multicolore Marilyn Noir, inspired by Marilyn Monroe, is becoming rarer to find in such an amazing condition and makes a fabulous, compact day bag or roomy evening bag.
Semi structured with a beautifully rounded silhoutte, the canvas is in an excellent condition. Absololutely pristine multicolore motifs, all in a perfect condition throughout, bright, precise and without any rubs or fading.
The vachetta is also very good, with only very light honeying, some minor drying to the trims and a few light marks to the top strap as show above.
The golden brass to the body of the bag is bright and shiny with minor scratches to the pushlock and base plate. The very tip of the base plate shows some light oxidisation.
The chain strap is slightly dulled but displays no tarnish or oxidisation and the interior is lined in clean soft taupe alacantre with one small mark as shown.
