Louis Vuitton Idylle Romance Bag Double Dose of Romance

Louis Vuitton Idylle Romance bag was born a little over 2 years ago.  The ultra feminine bag is beautifully crafted of Louis Vuitton Idylle canvas and contrasting calfskin leather trimmings, accented with Louis Vuitton rich golden metallic hardware.

Louis Vuitton Idylle Canvas – The Improved Version Of Mini Lin Canvas

Louis Vuitton Idylle canvas line and Louis Vuitton Mini Lin canvas line look so similar. No wonder many people/websites mix these two up. But Idylle is actually an improved version of Mini Lin. The discontinued Monogram Mini Lin canvas line is a blend of cotton and linen. It expresses the Monogram signature on a natural, supple, light and hard-wearing jacquard. Launched in March 2010, monogram Idylle is distinguished by an innovative canvas that creates a remarkably soft, light a study cloth. The fabric is thicker, more sturdy and water/stain repellent. All items in Idylle canvas line are built to be several times more durable than the Mini Lin line. The change of name reflects its rebirth.

French for ‘romance’, the discreetly elegant Monogram Idylle canvas is the ideal fit for urban and feminine lifestyles.

“Capture fresh, laid-back elegance with the beautiful Louis Vuitton Idylle Romance Bag.” – from Louis Vuitton official website.

This double dose of romance hobo is totally my type of bag – charming, lightweight, just the right size and very comfortable to wear.



Where to find the date code

Don’t panic if you can’t find its date code inside the main body of the bag. Indeed, it is a bit tricky to find the date code of the Louis Vuitton Idylle Romance bag. There’s a deep exterior pocket on each side of the bag. Look into one of them. In between the seams, you’ll find the date code printed on a little leather patch as shown on the picture below:).

Happy Weekend All!

It’ll be fairly quiet here for the next week or so, as we are flying to this place… one week of white sand beach & tropical island with no phone, no Internet. Though you might not hear from me personally during this period, new orders will be dispatched on Thursday, 22 November. More new arrivals are scheduled to be listed on Sunday, 24 November. Happy Weekend everyone!

The Gucci Kelly Bag

Hermes Kelly Bag was named after Grace Kelly.The then new Monaco princess famously carried a Hermes bag to hide her pregnant belly from the praying eyes of paparazzi. This is my favorite photo of Grace Kelly, totally unrelated to the Kelly bag I know. But I got distracted, by the innocent and slight melancholy look on the face of a confident and accomplished woman…

The bag became hugely popular after photos of Grace Kelly appeared in a magazine and other famous fashion houses all produced similar styled bags later.

 Louis Vuitton:



At Bags of Charm, we offer pre-owned luxury designer items. Most of the pre-owned handbags and accessories are gently used but some times we get them in new, never used condition, Like this never been used

Gucci Kelly bag:

It is crafted of high quality smooth leather & accented with gold toned hardware. This bag has a natural beige color, which makes it look good with outfits of any color. Elegance is the key factor of Kelly bag. It is perfectly structured with a top handle and front flap secured with a push lock. There are 2 keys with their own leather pouch and leather string to attach to the bag. What I like the most about the bag are the extra functional features of this bag. A long detachable shoulder strap! Who doesn’t like convenience? With a long shoulder strap, the bag can be used as hand free messenger bag. And this:

A gorgeous polished golden GG logo pocket mirror with a leather case.

That’s why we love high-end designer things – the attention to details. What else would make a better gift than this Gucci Kelly bag? New, but pre-owned so you still get it at hugely a discounted price. Be quick though, or I’m so taking that mirror.
