Personalisation is the luxury world’s antidote for weary shoppers looking for uniqueness, so it wasn’t surprising when Louis Vuitton recently launched a very covetable collection of necklaces called Me & Me.
While anything personalised may be a dime a dozen these days, this collection has a lot going for it mainly because a) it was designed by Nicolas Ghesquiere who can do no wrong in fashion editor’s eyes b) because it really is quite chic, cool and fresh c) its affordable.
Each necklaces features a graphic alphabet charm that is in keeping with this season’s retro 1960s/1970s vibe. Each one is decorated with small screws that reference Vuitton’s iconic trunk studs and make them look almost handmade. All letters of the alphabet are available and it really is a great gift for yourself or a friend.
Also be sure to check out the V collection which features a similar letter V in various guises from pendants and cuffs to belts.
Who knows, maybe the V will eventually replace the monogram?
