Louis Vuitton brings bags of class to Tel Aviv
And with its cavernous interior, versatile side drawstrings to adjust the shape of the bag, and impeccable construction (this is Louis Vuitton, after all), it might just be the perfect carryall. So you can imagine our excitement when we learned that for the first time, the iconic French brand released a collection of Neverfull totes in a dazzling array of colored Epi leather. Now, you may be asking what’s so hot about Epi leather, especially since it’s ribbed and structured rather than soft and supple. That raised texture means that it can withstand a beating (read: this bag knows how much it’s going to be used, and it’s ready to last a lifetime). But the best part about this new collection just may be the colors. You can now get a Neverfull in seven hues, from bright blue to deep red and brilliant orange. If there’s a way to add an instant burst of chromatic personality to your outfit, this is it. We love the idea of the blue for Summer perfectly paired with a white sundress but if you’re looking to get a little more mileage out of your bag, we could totally see carrying the purple or red Neverfull straight into Fall. Priced at $1,990, these bags certainly aren’t cheap, but remember how we said they would last a lifetime?
Vuitton tones down for Russian tastes

If customers dont wish to have their initials in big letters on the bag, they can choose to have them hot stamped onto their bags tag, free of charge. Every productsymbolizes the travel spirit, Dobkin said. You can see that even in the Lockit shoes, which are really popular. Theres a small lock that hangs off the zipper. Another part of the legacy is that everything in the store is handmade in artists workshops. The bags come from workshops in France, the leather from France and Spain, and the shoes from Italy. Even the holes in the belts are hand painted on the inside so that they match the top color, Mizrahi said.

‘This sale which runs for 10 days provides another extended opportunity for buyers around the world to purchase handbags and accessories by some of the greatest designers of all time.’ Handbag history: A lesson Hermes Kelly and Birkin bags continue to be highly sought-after and have become increasingly popular since they were first designed. Birkin bags were inspired by English actress and singer Jane Birkin in the 1980s. In a chance encounter with the former Hermes CEO on an airplane, the celebrity suggested the design for a weekend bag, which paved the way for the consistently popular Birkin bag. The Kelly bag was named after Grace Kelly, who in 1956 had just become Princess of Monaco and was seen carrying the original leather ‘Sac a depeche’ to hide her pregnancy. Photographs of the young starlet were sent all over the world, leading to the bag being known as the Kelly.

God gave me talent. Discretion wasnt always fashionable among Russians. Animal print bras, gaudy frocks and logoed luggage were de rigueur in 1990s as the wealthy few sought to relive pre-1917 revolution excesses, according to Alla Verber, fashion director at Tsum department store in Moscow.

Swiss watch exports to China fell 19 percent in May, according to the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry. Sales have declined as economic growth has weakened and as the Chinese governments austerity campaign has curbed demand for high-end products popular for business gifts. The watch sector overall has been declining in China this year due to the economic slowdown and also off the back of the anti-corruption measures, Aaron Fischer, an analyst at CLSA Ltd. in Hong Kong, said by phone today. Southeast Asia Chinas economy grew 7.5 percent in the second quarter from a year earlier, slowing for a second straight period.
