Talk about multi-functionality, Louis Vuitton’s Monogram Empreinte Saint Germain BB Bag got you covered. Giving you the best of both bags, you can have a wallet and a small shoulder bag in one bag. Cool, isn’t it?
If you remember, we’ve talked about this bag before, you can check this link to refresh your bag memory: Louis Vuitton Monogram Empreinte Saint Germain BB Bag. For today, we are going to take a closer look at this stunning LV piece.
At first glance, this bag has a timeless feel to it and the more you stare at it, the more you’ll fall in love with its classic appeal. The scarlet red color is just too lovely that no amount of words can give justice to it.
The BB size on the other hand is more square-oritented thus making it ideal for women who would like to carry only their essentials whenever they’re on-the-go. The leather on the other hand- the classic Monogram Empreinte Leather is one of LV’s sought-after prints that will never go out of style. The golden chain straps on the other hand completes its look.
It measures 6.7’ x 5.1’ x 2.8’ (L x H x W), priced at $1760 USD via Louis Vuitton boutique.Handbags
Shortly after we dropped a review about the Louis Vuitton Lockme II bag, Adrena sent us this message: ‘It resembles the Saint Laurent Moujik Bag, can you do a comparison?’
And yes, we want to.
So we took an image of the ’Lockme 2 Bag’ and the ‘Moujik Bag’. We compared the looks:
One large obvious difference is the front flap. The Lockme2 Bag has a larger flap while the Moujik Bag’s flap doesn’t even cover 50% of the front.
But there are also similarities – the luggage tag, the leather strap, the shape is not entirely the same but it’s close to. And both of the top handles are connected to the bag with eyelets.
Another obvious different is the LV closure on the front, while the Saint Laurent bag logo is printed very small on the flap.
The interior is also quite interesting. Both have two roomy compartments, one large and one small. The Moujik Bag has one more internal slot pocket while the Lockme 2 Bag has 1 inside pocket, 2 smartphone pockets.
On the exterior, the Moujik Bag features one back slot pocket.
If you take a closer look, there is one hidden difference that makes the Lockme 2 Bag quite interesting. It’s the 2 press buttons on the sides of the bag. These buttons are made to expand or tighten the bag depending on how much essentials you’re carrying. It makes the bag more comfortable to carry as its flexible and you can adjust to your needs.
The Saint Laurent Moujik Bag has been around longer than the Lockme 2 Bag, and furthermore, the Lockme 2 Bag is the upgrade and modernized version of the Lockme Bag.
