The last two issues of Vogue Paris have been filled with initials.
Carine splayed her pages with LVs, GGs, Fs, and Cs on handbags, weekenders and trunks.
I’ve never owned a logo bag–save for my mini Liz Claiborne, gifted at age 5–but lately…I don’t know…that Céline bag….
Be forewarned: Logo bags are back.
In the office, I’ve been obsessing over Kate’s vintage navy Gucci with a red and green grosgrain stripe. Britt, the queen of simplicity, even admitted to coveting that vintage Gucci monogram.
I’ve always had a soft spot for Louis Vuitton’s weekender, which Gwyneth used to carry around in the ’90s, back when logo bags were more than kosher–they were a requisite.
But in general, logos still feel like they belong to a fast, in-your-face crowd of which I don’t belong. And yet the small Céline boston bag, which rings in at $770, and comes in navy, tan or burgundy canvas, keeps calling my name. Britt thinks–and I must concur–that the reason I’m so taken with the bag, other than the fact it was approved by Phoebe, is because it’s so much cheaper than Céline’s all-leather satchel. I must subconsciously think it’s a bargain.
Regardless, I do think that, with all this minimalist fashion, logos may yet again have a place in our accessories wardrobe. Will you pony up for a monogram?
