You all know that my love for bags started at a very, very young age. I don’t even think I hit double digits when I knew I wanted to own a Louis Vuitton Speedy bag one day. In fact, I recently came across an old collage when I was cleaning my room at my parents’ house, and sure enough, there was a hastily cut magazine clipping of a Speedy, stuck between some Puma sneakers and a jean jacket that I thought was crazy. . cold. When I think about my love for designer handbags, I’m really not sure where it came from. I didn’t grow up with a mother who was devoted to fashion, or a brother of the order who was interested in all things design. I got my love of accessories from my grandmother, but her idea of a good bag always had less to do with the name on the inside of the bag and more to do with the price tag. And even if it sounds silly, I always say that I was born to love bags.
I added a Neverfull to my growing bag collection in my early twenties. Not long after, Louis Vuitton launched the Mon Monogram option and eventually released a version that included a zippered bag. Every time a new Neverfull option came along, I was disappointed that I got the original. And that traditional continues, because I love the last option:Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM Patches. We introduced you to this collection a few months ago, but we were excited to finally get our hands on one of these pieces to see for ourselves.
Neverfull patches are available in size MM, which is the medium. This bag is a great size for an everyday bag compared to the GM, which is the size I personally own and am obsessed with for travel. My Neverfull GM has been everywhere with me, from road trips, train rides, long flights, you name it, it’s been through it all, but it’s a little big for everyday use. One of the things I love about a Monogram Canvas tote bag is the durability factor. My bag is years old and although the leather has aged, the body shows hardly any wear. The MM is not only great for everyday use due to its size, but the durability out of the box is also a huge plus.
As the name obviously implies, Patches Neverfull MM features playful graphic patches on Vuitton’s traditional Monogram Canvas. The patches differ in that some of them are painted while others look more like real embroidered patches. Inside, the bag is a bright hot pink and features a zippered interior pocket just like the Neverfulls that have come before. This bag also comes with a removable bag, a feature I wish my dear Neverfull had too!
