Remember the days of stately Louis Vuitton outlet trunks rolling off aeroplanes, ships, and trains covered in stickers of landmarks from far-away lands? This concept of transforming your luggage into a travelling postcard is coming back into fashion, courtesy of replica Louis Vuitton.
Stuck on you
Louis Vuitton’s new ‘Make It Yours’ campaign of patches and travel stickers applies a 21st-century twist to a nostalgic concept from the ‘good old days’. The fashion empire is offering five different collections to choose from, ranging from cars, lipstick, and headphones to ringed planets, initials, and —just as those of yesteryear — iconic landmarks from cities around the world, including London, Paris, Shanghai, Seoul, Tokyo, Miami, and more. With bright, neon colours, customers can set their replica handbags apart from all others and make them as personal as they like. Who knows, a new trend may emerge of comparing stickers on your favourite bag instead of stamps in your passport.
Drumming to the beat of personalisation, Louis Vuitton’s new Tambour Moon collection is now available with interchangeable straps.
Louis Vuitton expands its Tambour family with the new Tambour Moon line for men and women, and opens the door to customisation thanks to a new interchangeable strap system that is compatible with all Tambour watches, past and present.
A drum roll for 15 years of resounding Tambour success
Created in 2002, the Tambour marked Louis Vuitton’s replica watchmaking debut and has appeared in countless guises over the years. Mechanical complications like chronographs, regatta timers, tourbillons, minute repeaters, mysterious movements and the famous Spin Time have all been incorporated in the round case of the Tambour, along with high jewellery models. French for ‘drum’, the Tambour watch is distinguished by its rotundity and the generous edge of the case where the 12 Louis Vuitton letters are engraved.
Faithful to its drum-shaped case, the cheap Louis Vuitton Tambour Moon features a new crescent-shaped silhouette. A subtle design tweak, the concave depression on the dial area adds volume and depth.
A GMT watch for Louis Vuitton’s eternal spirit of wanderlust
For a brand that built its reputation on trunks, travel is a recurring theme at Louis Vuitton outlet, and the Tambour Moon model for men, above, comes with a practical GMT function allowing travellers to consult the time in two different places simultaneously.
The two-tone version in steel and the limited-edition pink gold model accentuate the sensation of depth with their sloping black flanges and applied rose gold numerals. The dial, decorated with a black rice grain pattern reminiscent of Louis Vuitton’s famous Damier Graphite canvas, highlights the GMT function, with a lacquered hand, shaped like a ‘V’ in honour of the iconic LV monogram, coloured the same yellow as the iconic Tambour watch, which echoes the waxed thread on Louis Vuitton’s replica bags.
Capturing the moment: Tambour Moon Chronograph
Chronographs are the very definition of a sports watch. The new Tambour Moon Chronograph displays Louis Vuitton iconography throughout. Like the GMT model, this 44mm chronograph features the weave of Damier Graphite canvas on the indented dial and yellow accents to highlight the chronograph functions.
Three women’s versions of the Tambour Moon Star Chronograph with a black, white or mother-of-pearl dial form part of the new collection. The Maison’s hallmark star-shaped flower – the ubiquitous design that appears on the LV Monogram – was dreamed up by cheap Louis Vuitton’s son Georges Vuitton in 1896 to brand his luggage business. Placed at 6 o’clock, the pink gold flower adds a touch of femininity to this new Tambour watch.
In addition to the women’s chronograph, the Tambour Moon Star watch, below, available in black and white models, uses the iconic pink gold flower motif at 6 o’clock, which doubles up as a small seconds, completing a full rotation every 60 seconds.
The choice is yours
The current trend for interchangeable replica watch straps is now a reality for all Tambour watch models – including the Tambour Slim – allowing owners to choose from a wide selection of straps made from leather, alligator, rubber and other iconic Louis Vuitton replica fabrics, including Monogram and Damier canvas. Developed by Louis Vuitton’s R&D department, the patented strap-changing system means that no tools are required except, of course, for a touch of imagination and style to endow your Tambour with as many different personalities as you like.
Retro-inspired patches add a touch of old-world civility to your carry-on.
Do you have a Google alert set for “Steamer Trunk”? Have you ever gone down a deep eBay hole in an attempt to find the luggage carried in The Darjeeling Limited? Do you find yourself longing for a golden age of travel, when men wore suits to fly First Class and women had leather carrying cases specifically designed for their hats?
As a nod to the brand’s heritage as the go-to luggage supplier for the fin-de-siècle jet set, Louis Vuitton replica just added a new service to their personalization program called “My LV World Tour,” which lets you customize certain replica handbags (including carry-on-friendly styles like their rolling suitcases, classic Speedy, the Neverfull tote, and the Keepall duffel) with fun, retro patches that make your bag look like it’s been across the Atlantic on the Q.E. II at least twice.
Choose from emblems featuring Grande Dame hotels like the Majestic in Paris and the King Edward in Hong Kong, or iconic images from cities around the world: Miami gets a cheerful pair of pink Flamingos, Rio a silhouette of Sugarloaf Mountain. You can even have one featuring your initials and a date—perhaps your birthday, wedding anniversary, or something to commemorate a particularly memorable trip.
Walk into any Vuitton boutique to pick out the patches you want on your bag (for certain styles, you can even choose the color of the lining and the leather trim), and then somewhere between 8-12 weeks later, you’ll have the vintage-inspired luggage of your Wes Andersonian dreams. We’d like to imagine that carrying it will add a touch of old-world civility to your next trip—almost as if the person next to you is sipping champagne instead of housing a crinkly bag of Pop Chips. Almost.
