Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Alma MM


A fellow handbag lover recently brought something to my attention. Apparently, Señora Cartera hasn't featured many Louis Vuitton bags. In fact, less than 4% of all the posts on this site have been dedicated to King Louis. This is not a calculated slight on my part, ladies. I just like to spread the love (and sometimes hate) around to the entire designer handbag world. With that said, I'm keeping my word by bringing you news of a new color on an classic Louis Vuitton style.

The Monogram Vernis collection is one of my all-time favorite LV lines (besides the Epi Leather collection), and the Monogram Vernis Alma MM is a style every woman can find some use for. The 'Alma', one of LV's most recognizable designs, is a perfect foil for each season's new color additions. For fall, Louis Vuitton is bringing us this timeless design in a color called bleu nuit. This midnight blue is subtle, sophisticated, and works for either day or evening. You can purchase the Monogram Vernis Alma MM in bleu nuit thru Louis Vuitton's website for a rather steep $2010.

If you like the 'Alma' as much as I do, I'd also recommend the Epi Alma in black. It's an absolute classic bag you'll circulate within your wardrobe for years to come, and it's considerably less expensive at $1310. Too bad they didn't make an Epi Alma in bleu nuit. I would have nabbed that bag on the spot.

    i like the classic shape of alma bags. this color in vernis is amazing, but epi is my favorite too and I would LOVE to get my hands on an epi keepall in bleu nuit! btw, i saw lil kim wearing this bag weeks ago! i guess those are the perks of being one of marc jacobs' closest friends!

    I caught Lil Kim carrying the Alma as well. She inspired me to write about my favorite Louis bag. Glad you like the bleu nuit. I think it's one of their best colors to date.
