Celebrating 30 years of the Louis Vuitton Cup
Font Page 1 of 1 It was in the early 1980s when the accomplished French sailor Bruno Trouble had the idea of finding a sponsor for the qualifying series of the America’s Cup, sailing’s greatest race. Until then, teams had organized – and paid for – the America’s Cup selection series themselves. “The concept arose from the fact that we challengers were tired of footing the bill for the organization of the qualifying regatta,” Trouble said. “It occurred to me that instead of spending money on the selection process, we should find a partner. That’s how it all started.” Trouble turned to the French-based, internationally acclaimed luxury goods company Louis Vuitton , founded in 1854, just three years after the start of the America’s Cup in 1851. “I had a meeting with the skippers (of the challenging teams), and I called Henry Racamier , the chairman of Louis Vuitton,” Trouble said. “It took a phone call and he said, ‘OK, I’m in.’ ” The first Louis Vuitton Cup, to determine which of the challengers will face the defender of the America’s Cup, was held in 1983. That first race marked a turning point in the history of the America’s Cup, as an Australian team skippered by John Bertrand wrested the Cup from the New York Yacht Club and ended America’s 132-year winning streak. This year represents the 30th anniversary – and eighth regatta – of the Louis Vuitton series. Round-robin qualifying races begin Sunday, and continue until the start of the semifinals on Aug.

Fiona Apple swore, did a back-bend and stormed out of a Louis Vuitton event performance
After swearing at the crowd at a Louis Vuitton event for speaking during her set, the singer walked out, reports Womens Wear Daily. Apple grew more agitated with the crowd at the event, who would not stop talking, as the night wore on. She tried several times to get the audience to be quiet: she hit a metal ball, swore several times both quietly and loudly, and told them they were rude. Eventually, Apple said, Predictable! Predictable fashion, what the fk? and walked out of the venue. Those were not the only Apple antics last night: The singer also stood on her piano, performed a back-bend on the bench, and hit herself in the head with her microphone. The event, held at the Tokyo Station Hotel, was part of Vuittons Timeless Muses exhibit honouring model Kate Moss, filmmaker Sofia Coppola, architect Charlotte Perriand, French actress Catherine Deneuve, author Francoise Sagan, and 19th century empress consort Eugenie de Montijo. The exhibit will run for three weeks, starting Saturday August 31, and will feature videos and items representative of each muse.
