Monogram Eclipse Speedy from Louis Vuitton’s Fall-Winter 2009 Collection is a glammed-up version of the classic, a chic bag with a tantalizing sparkle. The sequins are intricately stitched against the iconic Monogram canvas to form the Monogram which slightly obscures the pattern underneath, creating a sort of eclipse on the bag.
Eclipse Speedy also features two hotel room key inspired zipper pulls, long and comfortable flat calfskin leather handles with handmade leather knots and graphic eyelets, it has a double flat pocket inside for organization, and bottom studs to protect the base of the bag.
Monogram Eclipse Speedy 28 comes in two lovely colors, Black and Gold. Both measure 28 cm, an unusual size for an unusual bag.
Pieces from this line would not be considered as an everyday item thus additional care would need to be taken when using an item from the Monogram Eclipse collection, just as any sequined/embroidered item.
This piece is rare and its price varies a lot depending on the state of sequins but most of them go for over $2300.
