Louis Vuitton Ellipse PM Monogram Handbag Review

By Bebefuzz

The Louis Vuitton Ellipse PM bag is a structured classic perfect for everyday outfits. Here is a review about its size, design, and functionality.

Size

The Louis Vuitton Ellipse PM bag measures roughly 12.5 inches wide, 10.5 inches tall and 5.5 inches deep. I consider this to be a medium-sized handbag. It easily fits a lot of essentials. With plenty of room to spare, it carried my wallet, phone, backup charger, cardigan, sunglasses, keys, tissue paper, and chapstick.

For those who like the look of this bag but carry a LOT, or like a bigger handbag, the Louis Vuitton Ellipse MM may be a better option. It measures approximately 16 inches wide, 13 inches tall, and 8 inches deep. Comparing Louis Vuitton Ellipse PM vs MM, the MM is considerably larger, and its size is similar to the Celine Mini luggage bag.

For sizing reference, I stand 5 feet 5 inches barefoot. I gravitate towards small to medium-sized bags, so I prefer the PM over the MM size.

Design

I adore the structure on this bag. It is very very rigid, and it would take a completely reckless owner to ruin the shape. To me, this discontinued bag is much more beautiful than the Speedy bag due to its polished structure and design. It is simple yet interesting, making it a very classic handbag.

Vachetta leather is only used on the handles and trim of the monogram Ellipse. Since exposure to dirt, sunlight, oil, and moisture darken vachetta leather, this bag will age considerably better than a monogram Alma bag which has vachetta leather for the entire base.

The neutral brown and tan colors of the monogram bag allow the bag to match most casual and semi-casual outfits. Most of the bag's exterior is LV monogram canvas which is very resistant to wear and damage. Not only does it look good, but the monogram is awesomely durable. Aside from the iconic LV pattern, there are reasons why Louis Vuitton monogram is so popular. :)

Functionality

The opening utilizes 2 zippers and can be opened very wide. The inside is one large space with one small side pocket. I find this bag to be very convenient to use. And, given the hard exterior, you really don't have to worry about anything getting squished.

For the longest time, I stayed away from bags without a shoulder strap. But, recently, I can't seem to get enough of bags with handles. Surprisingly, I am not inconvenienced by a bag resting on my wrist, and the resulting look is very lady-like.

Hope you enjoyed this post. If you are shopping for Louis Vuitton bags, I hope that this was helpful. And, be sure to peruse all the pre-owned authentic Louis Vuitton bags on sale here.
