There’s something about Virgil Abloh and his ability to twist a regular object into something special (the 3% ratio as he calls it), giving it an added twist. Case in point? What seems like an ordinary 35 mm belt rendered in Louis Vuitton’s signature Monogram Canvas is now different. Look closely and you will find two additional loops (both adjustable and movable) which now can be used to attach some of your favourite key rings and charms.
Alternatively, you can consider loading it up with small pouches like the Box Phone Case and Round Case, both of which come in Monogram Canvasand are part of the Fall-Winter 2019 collection that’s now available in Singapore. The Box Phone Case (SGD995) measures 17 cm by 9 cm, which is a perfect fit for your iPhone XS Max, or it can always be used to store other essentials like cards and cash. The Round Case (SGD1110), on the other hand, is furnished with a gold-tone zip to secure your coins and keys within, measuring 8 in diameter.
But if you like to stand out from the crowd, there’s also the Box Pouch Bag Charm (SGD860), which can also be hooked onto belt loops, coming in a cube-like shape that measures 9 cm by 8 cm and furnished with a bold rainbow cross on the shiny monogram.
Pair them all with the Signature 35 mm Belt (SGD870), one that comes in 4 different lengths ranging from 85 cm to 100 cm, and you’re literally good to go. But if you find yourself needing something larger, you can consider getting the Rainbow Taiga Danube Messenger, one that will hold much more comfortably within.
