Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Bags: What's Your Pick?

luxury designer louis vuitton monogram bags collection
Owning designer bags like #LouisVuitton can never go wrong as these luxury bags can last for ages. The oldest bag seen here, the Louis Vuitton Monogram Montsouris Backpack, is probably about 20 years old! That's right, that's two decades ago and my LV backpack is still in very good condition. You probably can't tell it is that old, can you?

If you are in possession of a designer bag, it does somehow improve your mood. Well, at least it does for me. Besides, the distinctive scent of real leather keeps shoppers from coming back resulting in prices escalating over the years. It is certainly worth the investment, and if you are working hard and have the ability to appreciate the finer things in life, why not?

In Singapore, Louis Vuitton is a common sight as compared to places in Europe like Paris, and I am talking about authentic LVs. I am also seeing more and more ladies carrying Chanel and even Hermes especially in the business district these recent years. Singaporeans love to splurge on luxury goods, and if you are working hard enough, you certainly deserve your fruits of labour.

Following my earlier post on Louis Vuitton Monogram Accessories: Are you a LV Fanatic, I am now going to feature iconic bags of the Louis Vuitton French fashion house which include the LV Speedy bags and LV Neverfull bags. Well, I own both of them, but sold my LV Speedy bag years ago to make way for new stuff. The Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Neverfull was so popular at one time that it was always snapped up within minutes! Do you own the Louis Vuitton Speedy or Neverfull?

lv monogram canvas neverfull review
The LV Monogram Canvas Neverfull comes in 3 sizes. I got the medium one. The handles may look slim, but these leather handles can resist up to 231 lbs each!

I love the fact that the LV Neverfull can be " transformed " into another shape! Simply pull the leather drawstring ties on each side, and you will have another design!

The bag also comes with a D-ring inside which allows you to hook any other LV accessories like my Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Key and Change Holder. Pretty neat, right?

louis vuitton monogram montsouris backpack review
For my travels, I used to own the Louis Vuitton Keepall Bandouliere, somewhat similar to the LV Speedy bags but sold it as the size is too big for me. Then, I fell in love with the Louis Vuitton Monogram Montsouris Backpack! Named after the Montsouris Park on the southern edge of Paris, the Montsouris is finished with beautiful details, such as an elegant buckle, leather drawstring closure, and a natural cowhide base with saddle stitching. I like to pair it with my Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Poche Toilette 19 to keep my things neatly organized.

For work, I used to carry the Louis Vuitton Monogram Porte-Documents Voyage to the office on most days. This LV soft-sided briefcase is ideal for everyday use or relaxed business travel.

I like to pair my LV Briefcase with:
  • Louis Vuitton Small Ring Agenda + Louis Vuitton Golden Agenda Pencil  
  • Louis Vuitton Billfold 
  • Louis Vuitton Pocket Agenda 
  • Louis Vuitton Spectacles Case
  • Louis Vuitton Key and Change Holder

The Louis Vuitton Briefcase has a spacious interior, and few inside pockets for organization including a slot for mobile phone. The leather handles come with rings for attaching optional shoulder strap which may be purchased separately.

louis vuitton monogram canvas manhattan pm review
The Louis Vuitton Monogram Manhattan PM is definitely one of my favourite handbags. Inspired by Marc Jacobs's own leather goods collection, and combining Marc's urban and feminine style with classic Louis Vuitton signatures, the Manhattan PM is the must-have city tote in Monogram canvas.

The LV Manhattan PM features chunky metallic Louis Vuitton rivets and two outer gusseted pockets with push-lock closures. I would usually slot in my Louis Vuitton Toiletry Pouch to organize my stuff inside the bag.

Well, after investing in these luxury designer goods, do you know How To Spot That Fake Bag? With so many counterfeit bags surfacing on sites like eBay, be sure to arm yourself with some basics before you jump the gun.

If you are intending to splurge on a LV bag especially if it is your first, I suggest you read my Guide To An Authentic Louis Vuitton Bag!


  1. Yayy.. still have a lot of your collections, Shirley!
    That backpack is kinda bag on the go.
    If I were to choose, I'll definitely go for it ^_^

    Jhem |

  2. My LV is less than a year old. Hubby bought from Paris. Hardly use but for very special occasion.

    Thanks for the guide. Much appreciated.

  3. Well you cannot go wrong with Louis Vuitton I do like this one and Coach also Micheal Kors.

  4. Very impressive LV collection! I think it's really wonderful you have been collecting these bags over the years, I think it makes you love your collection even more.

    Having a designer bag always adds that special something to our outfit and it can even make us look more professional.

  5. Darling, I have to read you guide before buying a LV original bag, some Italian fakes are so
    well done... :)
    Great post!

    That backpack is wow

  11. You have such a wonderful collection. A LV bag for every occasion :)

  12. Good collections..I do not have any LV yet :(

    Rowena @ rolala loves

  14. What a cool collection! I love the backpack!

  15. Wonderful collection of LV dear. I'm a weakness when it comes to bag:) beside shoe:).

    Have a great day to you!

  16. When come to branded item like this, i'm a complete moron. Therefore, the safest is to go to the original shop.... afterall you already intended to splurge, isn't it? But of course your post on "how to spot that fake bag" and "guide to authentic LV bag" surely comes in handy.... at least when i'm the road, I can tell to a certain extend if someone is carrying a fake or authentic....** wink wink

  17. Ypu collection is really fantastic darling!


  18. Great collection, hun!!!
    The neverfull is my fav bag! :)

  19. Must really take good care of them right? I always use my bags to the bones so I don't dare to buy branded bags. So sayang to use them.

  20. Your collection is huge and I love all the bags. Great post.


  21. Louis Vuitton Monogram Porte-Documents Voyage is my keeper though I've never own LV. As said before, its an over rated brand here. I have other exclusive brands bought from Italy and Japan. I shall keep the brands a secret. You have such an amazing collection. All well kept.

  22. Wow amazing collection! I love all the pieces!


  23. Your collection is fantastic, Shirley. Love the Neverfull, just gorgeous. Yes Shirley it's a wallpaper, it's a 3d print and it looks really realistic. So much better than to have a real stone wall, because the wallpaper is washable and don't collect dust as a stonewall does with all the edges and such. That's why I didn't want real stones. Hope that makes sense, lol.

    1. Certainly looks very cool, Lenya! I'm gonna try wallpaper some day too :D

  24. amazing post ang blog! :)


  25. I've never owned a LV bag. That's certainly a great collection!

  26. shirley that backpack is so so cute!

  27. I had a LV Speedy once and enjoyed it.

  28. Like the first bag :)
    Maria V.

  29. I'm not big fan of LV, but one bag... why not?

  30. Even though they are all so beautiful, the backpack is my favorite one! Designer bags improve my mood too Shirley xoxo

    I wish you an happy day
    a big kiss

  38. Totally into all your LV collection Shirley! So love it! I am sure all are handy and special in own way.

  39. Your bags are all beautiful and you are a smart shopper & investor!
    I enjoy reading this LV post more than their LV website that doesn't write fun details like you.

  40. Super impressive collection. I like the neverfull bag, can just dump all your stuff in there

  41. "if you are working hard and have the ability to appreciate the finer things in life, why not?" yea!! I love this statement, you are absolutely true. one of your oldest collection of LV bags is at least 20 years old! I never knew it can last that long. I should be getting at least a designer's wallet since I am not using any bag..haha...thanks for sharing the LV collections.


A lovely note makes a beautiful day!
