Sarah Jessica Parker debuts her new $4400 Louis Vuitton tote bag as she steps out in stripes

So it came as no surprise to see Sarah Jessica Parker carrying the latest W tote bag from Louis Vuitton during a recent outing in New York. The 48-year-old actress was spotted with the distinctive canary yellow accessory as she climbed from the rear of a car and made her way into an office building on Tuesday. Distinctive: Sarah Jessica Parker shows off her new W tote bag from Louis Vuitton on Tuesday With her hair tied back from her face and a pair of large sunglasses firmly in place, the usually good natured Sarah seemed preoccupied as she hurried past, one hand clutched tightly around the totes calfskin handles. And little wonder the luxury bag, which comes in a range of styles and colours, costs a sizeable $4400 (2907.17), no doubt a snip for Carrie Bradshaw, the designer obsessed columnist made famous by Sarah in HBO show Sex and the City. Made primarily from Veau cashmere leather, the bag which went on sale in July also includes palladium brass pieces, suede lining and various interior pockets. Smart as always: Sarah debuts the new $4,400 bag as she arrives at an office block in new York City Trendsetter: The Sex and the City star’s new bag went on sale in July Its also made up of a three-part shape that give it a distinctive look, while its exterior is decorated with the Louis Vuitton insignia. On another hot day in the Big Apple, Sex and the City star Sarah opted for a seasonal stripy vest top that showed off her toned arms -and a visible blue bra strap. That’s what you call a profile picture: Paul Weller’s wife Hannah Andrews posts selfie of her gravity-defying baby bump The casual look was completed with a pair of skinny jeans with striped detail and a pair of strappy black heels. Sarah who lives in New York with husband Matthew Broderick and their three children recently celebrated beloved mother Barbaras 75th birthday with a sumptuous dinner party at the citys upmarket French restaurant Le Charlot.

Louis Vuitton Buys Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France

LVMH Chief Executive Bernard Arnault, France’s richest man, said in January that Louis Vuitton’s slowdown was voluntary and the brand had put the brakes on opening new shops to preserve its exclusivity. At that time, Arnault publicly admitted for the first time that Louis Vuitton, LVMH’s biggest contributor to profits, was at risk of being too ubiquitous. To counter that perception, Arnault said the brand would move upscale and expand its leather bag offering while pruning its portfolio of LV-embossed canvas bags which make up two third of its business and generate gross margins of around 90 percent. LVMH Finance Director Jean-Jacques Guiony on Friday said Louis Vuitton’s margins rose in the first half, both at the operating and gross level, reversing a decline which analysts estimate started two or three years ago. “People feared that less canvas and more leather could impact Louis Vuitton’s margins,” said Exane BNP Paribas analyst Luca Solca.

That decision ensures a semifinal match between Luna Rossa Challenge and Artemis Racing. Artemis Racing first day of sailing on the Big Blue. (Photo: Sander van der Borch/Artemis Racing) Barker told a press conference in San Francisco on Sunday that the team had thought about how to use the time between the end of the round robins and the final. We weighed up whether to race the semifinals and get more race practice on the course but not knowing if Artemis would be ready to start, against spending more time on developing the boat. Without going into detail, Barker said a number of subtle changes (some cosmetic) and improvements in various components should make us significantly faster around the course. Barker said the team would not race against Artemis on Tuesday, the teams last scheduled round-robin match, opting instead to use the time to work on the boat. Artemis Racing is back sailing the teams AC 72 , following a fatal training accident in Maybut has yet to start a Louis Vuitton Cup match.

In a somewhat aggressive move, LVMH has revealed its financial share in Hermes has grown from 22.6% to 23.1%, despite being issued a 8 million fine earlier this month . Now, that doesn’t sound like much of climb in everyday numbers, but in the world of stocks and shares? When you’ve already been warned off by official regulating bodies? It’s on a par with flipping the bird. Sparking rumours that family-run Hermes might be in more financial trouble than they’d care to articulate, there’s talk that new shares in the company are being leaked by those at the top, to help to keep the books afloat. Yikes. Hold on to your Birkins folks, it could be a bumpy few months for poor old Hermes!

The survey said luxury brands had become more “accessible, collaborative and experimental”. After a modest purchase, for example, a firm might send a thank you note on Twitter while a couture fashion customer might receive an invitation to an exclusive show. Handbag firm Coach owed its position at number 10 on the list to its presence in China where it added 30 stores by the end of 2012, taking its total there to 69. The survey said it was among the firms making extensive use of social media and the Internet, “emailing over 1.2 billion messages to selected customers”. Models wear creations for Gucci women’s Fall-Winter 2013-14 collection, part of the Milan Fashion Week earlier this year. Gucci was named the third-most valuable global luxury brand, after Louise Vuitton and Hermes. Picture: AP And it found that the Chinese customer continued to be key to the fortunes of luxury firms in Europe. Although, the sector felt the impact of government limits on official gift giving and slowing economic growth in China, purchases by Chinese and other Asian tourists to Europe “buoyed luxury sales in the economically troubled markets of western Europe”, it said.

These boats are pretty new. We made probably a 20 percent improvement in boatspeed over the past 10 days. We are still developing our boat every single day, said Luna Rossa skipper Max Sirena. For experience, I can say that time on the water is helpful to go around the marks, but Artemis Racing is full of great sailors and Im pretty sure they will push hard to be ready to race. One thing that might work in favor of Artemis Racing is the newness of the AC72. In the grand scheme of things, the AC72 Class could still be considered in its infant stages.

So we’ve rounded up a few tips from our friends over at thevivant.com on how to check if your new LV purchase is in fact the real deal. Ready for a lesson in Vuitton perfection? Here we go… TIP 1: Always remember that the O’s in Louis Vuitton should have a perfectly round shape many counterfeits use oval shaped O’s instead. TIP 2: Check that the Louis Vuitton bag you are considering buying actually exists. Sounds obvious, but there have been examples of the Vernis being sold in black even though Louis Vuitton never made it in black. TIP 3: Louis Vuitton is extremely careful about the way that its monogram is placed, and it is usually completely symmetrical from side to side. TIP 4: Not all Louis Vuitton bags are made in France, so if your bag says ‘Made in USA’ don’t automatically assume it’s a fake.

Investors were concerned that Louis Vuitton’s growth was running out of steam after enjoying more than two decades of annual increases above 10 percent, driven by a rapid expansion around the globe. The stock in industry leader LVMH (LVMH.PA) rose as much as 5.7 percent – their biggest one-day gain in more than three years. LVMH Chief Executive Bernard Arnault, France’s richest man, said in January that Louis Vuitton’s slowdown was voluntary and the brand had put the brakes on opening new shops to preserve its exclusivity. At that time, Arnault publicly admitted for the first time that Louis Vuitton, LVMH’s biggest contributor to profits, was at risk of being too ubiquitous. To counter that perception, Arnault said the brand would move upscale and expand its leather bag offering while pruning its portfolio of LV-embossed canvas bags which make up two third of its business and generate gross margins of around 90 percent. LVMH Finance Director Jean-Jacques Guiony on Friday said Louis Vuitton’s margins rose in the first half, both at the operating and gross level, reversing a decline which analysts estimate started two or three years ago. “People feared that less canvas and more leather could impact Louis Vuitton’s margins,” said Exane BNP Paribas analyst Luca Solca. HSBC calculated that Louis Vuitton’s operating margin fell to 42 percent from 44 percent between 2011 and 2012. RELIEF Sales growth at LVMH’s fashion and leather goods division, of which Louis Vuitton makes up 75 percent of sales, doubled in the second quarter to 6 percent from 3 percent in the previous three months on a like-for-like basis.

Louis Vuitton Raised Most Non-Leather Handbag Prices, HSBC Says

The trunk maker owned by Paris-based LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA (MC) lifted prices on bags such as the Speedy and NeverFull by about 10 percent in the euro region, Antoine Belge , an HSBC analyst, said today in a note to clients. Vuitton raised prices by at least 10 percent in the U.K. and U.S., and by 5 percent to 10 percent in Asian markets including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore, the analyst wrote. The euros strength against some currencies may lead LVMH to charge more, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bernard Arnault said Jan. 31. Vuittons price increase in Japan, the biggest ever by the brand in the country, was taken to offset the impact of the yens slide on sales, the company said Feb. 20. In addition to protecting margins, the price increases must be seen, in our view, as a means to accelerate LVs repositioning towards more leather, Belge wrote. The decision will probably weigh on the number of items sold, though its the right thing for brand equity longer term. Vuittons 2013 sales may rise 6 percent, excluding currency moves, while volume may decline 2 percent to 3 percent, Belge wrote.

Michelle Williams For Louis Vuitton Dawsons Creek Star Models For Fall Campaign All eyes are on The Great Gatsby star, as she stuns in the latest Louis Vuitton campaign. The actress is debuting some new designs and one of her sexiest looks yet! The campaign, due to launch in September, captures the blonde beauty looking extremely high-fashion and chic, sporting a spiked pixie and dramatic red lip. The ad, which has a very punk couture vibe, aims to promote LVs new bags: the W and Capucines. The photographs, shot by Peter Lindbergh, show a completely different side of the big screen starlet, as she dons a black mani and a shoulder-clad dress from the Fall 2013 Collection. We love that shes rocking this edgy look since we didnt get to see Michelle embracing her inner-punk at the 2013 Met Ball. The Oscar-nominated actress looks confident and beautiful as she poses on a gold-detailed trunk with the new French designer goods. We love this look so much that we think Michelle should adopt it as her new signature style! Its one of the few celebrity-featured campaigns where we forgot shes an actress, and instead thought she was a model.

Though she has a sweet-as-a-button appeal, corsets , metallics and playful hems are all part of her style rotation. Fortunately, it looks like that fearlessness has paid off with a new gig as the face of Louis Vuitton . The actress stars in the fashion house’s autumn/winter 2013-14 campaign, which focuses on two new handbags, the W and the Capucines. Sporting wine-colored lips, dark brows and her signature cropped haircut, Williams looks particularly edgy in the Peter Lindbergh-lensed shots wearing clothing from the fall collection. It’s certainly a far cry from the young girl we met on “Dawson’s Creek.” Of course, this announcement isn’t too surprising — remember how great Williams looked in her show-stopping Louis Vuitton gown at the 2012 Oscars? This partnership is also particularly noteworthy, since it marks the star’s very first major fashion campaign. (Williams did star in the Band of Outsiders lookbook back in 2012, though.) You can catch her new Louis Vuitton ads in Marie Claire France on Aug. 2 or wait until they hit September and October fashion magazines Stateside.

“With this new store we would like to take a step further and provide adapted shopping experience and service for our sophisticated clientele,” Philippe Fortunato, president of Louis Vuitton China, says in a statement. Last year, in the annual China Luxury Study conducted by Bain, the French label fell to second place among Chinese women’s “most desired luxury brands” after being in the top spot the previous two surveys.
