Launched in winter of 2006, Louis Vuitton made a huge splash with their Miroir Collection. With one of the most iconic and recognizable Monograms in the Luxury market, Louis Vuitton took the classic Monogram and dusted it with reflective gold and silver PVC.
Soon after its launch, the Miroir Collection gained popularity through heavy celebrity focus. Everyone from Paris Hilton and the Kardashians to Scarlett Johansson rocked these eye catching pieces through the early 2000s. Because of its popularity with celebrities as well as its new take on their monogram, everyone wanted to get their hands on these bags. Another reason for its intense popularity was due to the fact that only a limited number of these bags were ever created during its original launch, making it a true collectors’ piece!
