If you follow us on socials, you’ll have seen that we welcomed a new member to the family this week… say hello to our new baby Louis Vuitton Onthego MM. Dreamy, right? To say we’ve fallen hard for the Louis Vuitton Onthego is an understatement, and judging from the reactions on our socials, so have you. It was a little bit of an impulse purchase, but one I definitely don’t regret making. But what is so fabulous about this gorgeous bag? Prepare to fall in love…
Although it doesn’t have a long legacy like the Neverfull or Speedy bag, as it was originally introduced as a new style to Louis Vuitton’s armory of bag styles in 2019, the Onthego is quickly becoming one of Louis Vuitton's iconic creations. The first Louis Vuitton OnTheGo tote bag was the giant monogram reverse monogram colorway in the GM (large) size made from coated canvas.
Louis Vuitton introduced the MM (medium) size OnTheGo tote bag in February 2020 and is arguably much more popular than the GM size. The MM size bag is a much better size for every day and much more similar to the most popular Louis Vuitton bag to date – the Neverfull MM.
For an everyday use bag, we believe the MM size to be a better choice. In addition, since the exterior of the Onthego MM is made entirely of canvas, it’s really lightweight, meaning the bag itself is not overly heavy, making it a really comfortable carry.
Both the front and back panels of the bag are composed of the monogram giant motif (aka giant monogram), with a twist. Specifically, one front panel has the classic monogram giant design, whereas the other side is reverse monogram giant canvas, which is great for when you want to switch up your look.
The size, quality, and variety offered by Louis Vuitton’s Onthego MM makes it an amazing luxury bag. Yes, it is expensive but so worth it. The bag is large and extremely trendy, but it’s also iconic enough to become a classic piece. Consequently, if you are debating the purchase, rest assured that you will be pleased with Louis Vuitton’s Onthego MM.
