We came across a photo of a Louis Vuitton bedroom in a house for sale in Kemah, Texas. If this look strikes your fancy, it can be yours for $2.35 million. Not only does the space have the easily identifiable logo painted above a stately bed, but there are other high-end brand names like Chanel and Versace that adorn the walls, too. Handbags (we’re assuming they’re the real deal) and furnishings that match the French line complete the space. Tacky or chic? You decide. Photo courtesy of Realtor.com If this is too flashy for your taste, don’t worry. According to the listing on Realtor.com , the sprawling 6,113 square-foot home in a gated community has a lot more to offer. It’s on a lake with a private pier and has three pools and a spa.

But above all, we needed this new trophy in order to win the honor of racing against the defender and carrying on the adventure.” Bertrand and his team aboard Australia II won 48 of 54 qualifying races, and beat the British syndicate Victory 83 by 4 races to 1 in the finals to go up against defender Liberty, skippered by legendary American sailor Dennis Conner . Bertrand recounted the battle against Conner: “The first team to win four heats would walk away with the oldest trophy in the world. We were down 1-3 and couldn’t afford any more mistakes. Even so, we missed our start and took off several lengths behind the Americans – it couldn’t have looked any worse. But we were ready for war, and we summoned up the strength to come back 2-3, and then equalize at 3-3.” On Sept. 26, 1983, Bertrand carried off a victory that was celebrated for months in Australia and lamented for four years in America (until Conner won the trophy back in 1987).

And those opportunities are, it seems, endless as endless, perhaps, as Louis Vuittons pockets are bottomless. Barely two years into his tenure at the house, Kim Jones has designed cashmere-neoprene wetsuits, a buttery kidskin life-jacket, and done just about anything that can be done to crocodile. For autumn/winter he created a fox-fur coat with leopard spots laser-etched into the pelt; for next spring, silk was woven with minute strips of mother-of-pearl in the LV logo to create an iridescent monogrammed tuxedo. It will cost around 68,000. But for all that abundance, Louis Vuitton is, in Kim Jones own words, a travel company. That might sound a little like Thomson Holidays, but Jones means that the root of the brand remains in travel. The original Monsieur Louis Vuitton started business as luggage-maker and packer to Empress Eugenie in 1854, when copious clothes and the girth of the crinoline required an artful hand and extensive luggage for any kind of trip. Vuitton still put malletier trunk-maker under their logo. Which is why Jones and Vuitton seem such a perfect fit: travel is in his blood. Jones father was English, his mother Danish, and although born in London in 1979 he grew up in Africa.
But with so much attention lavished on every one, should we only call them details?’ A second ad showed a woman making a wallet, with the text stating: ‘The young woman and the tiny folds. In everything from Louis Vuitton, there are elements that cannot be fully explained. ‘ ‘What secret little gestures do our craftsmen discretely pass on? How do we blend innate skill and inherent prowess? ‘Or how can five tiny folds lengthen the life of a wallet? Let’s allow these mysteries to hang in the air. Time will provide the answers.’ Luxury label: The fashion brand makes some of the most expensive bags in the world and has used Kate Moss in past advertising campaigns In 2007 the label launched one of the world’s most expensive handbags, called the Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork Bag – which cost around 24,000 and was snapped up by celebrities including singer Beyonce. Bosses at Louis Vuitton told the ASA that its ‘artisans were trained over many years to be able to carry out the various activities involved in the creation of one of their accessories’ and said the models in the photos were ‘instructed’ how to pose by experts. Bosses at the fashion house admitted that sewing machines were used as they made the items ‘more secure and (were) necessary for strength, accuracy and durability’. But ASA bosses found that Louis Vuitton were in breach of the truthfulness clause, saying it ‘considered that consumers would interpret the image of a woman using a needle and thread to stitch the handle of a bag in the ad to mean that Louis Vuitton bags were hand-stitched’.
