Stylish Icons – Louis Vuitton Handbags

The color palette was dark with pops of deep forest green, burgundy and dark mustard thrown in. Louis Vuitton showed the current black/white trend as well as dark shades of brown mixed together. There was one distinct trend in handbags on the Louis Vuitton fall runway; the double handle satchel or Lady Bag. The double handle satchel was in the hands of almost every model during the Louis Vuitton fall show. The Alma, one of Louis Vuittons most iconic and classic handbag styles, was shown on the runway in several different forms from a wide east/west silhouette to small, medium, large and extra large. The fabrications on the Alma were classic Monogram Canvas, Monogram Vernis, Epi leather and two seasonal fabrications; a diamond pattern and a suede version. The large amount of Almas on the fall runway signaled the importance of the top handle satchel or lady Bag trend for fall as well as a return to classic and ladylike silhouettes for the season. In addition to the double top handle tote, Louis Vuitton showed several versions of their daytime clutch on the runway. The clutch featured a dome top, zipper closure and flat bottom and was shown in several fabrications such as classic Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas and Monogram Vernis.

But advertising watchdogs have found the French design house guilty of misleading customers with two advertisements depicting its ‘craftsmen’ – because the bags are not actually made by hand. Despite ads showing a ‘seamstress with linen thread’ and boasting of ‘infinite patience’, bags bearing the trademark pattern of an interwoven ‘L’ and ‘V’ are predominantly created by machine. Misleading: Despite ads showing a ‘seamstress with linen thread’, bags bearing the trademark interwoven ‘L’ and ‘V’ are predominantly created by machine The Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) will today ban both advertisements. Louis Vuitton has argued the ads pay ‘homage to the craftsmanship’ of its employees rather than an accurate depiction of the manufacturing process. Three people complained to the ASA, saying they did not believe the designer bags were made entirely by hand. And after being challenged by the ASA, the designers admitted that sewing machines had been used, but said production of the bags was ‘not automated’ and that there were over 100 stages in the making of each bag. The controversial ad showed a photo of a seamstress stitching the handle of a handbag, with the text reading: ‘The seamstress with linen thread and beeswax. The underthings that underpin M&S profits ‘A needle, linen thread, beeswax and infinite patience protect each over-stitch from humidity and the passage of time. ‘One could say that a Louis Vuitton bag is a collection of details. 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.

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.

Bloch cited collaborations between artist Robert Pruitt and fashion brand Jimmy Choo , and noted a historic collection by designer Yves Saint Laurent that pulled clear inspiration from the color blocking seen in Piet Mondrian’s iconic artwork. Louis Vuitton is known for embracing the art world and has collaborated with contemporary artists including Stephen Sprouse and Takashi Murakami. In recent seasons, the brand has collaborated with well-known international street artists for a series of high-end scarves called ” Foulards D’artistes .” Lady Aiko , a street artist from Japan, said the collaboration with Louis Vuitton presented another venue to express creativity and build bridges. “I designed this scarf for everyone, even audiences who are not familiar with graffiti and street art,” she noted in a Louis Vuitton press release. “Personally, it was not about passing graphics in exchange [for money] and celebrity,” she wrote in an e-mail to CNN. “They provided me with an interesting assignment.” The project also gave her an opportunity to travel to her native Japan and seek inspiration. Before you can say “sell out,” note these artists tend to be well-established in their craft and find that collaboration leads to creative opportunities they could not have previously imagined.

China loves Louis Vuitton, and so will investors

Over the past decade, there’s been a 50% increase in the number of Chinese millionaires, with most of them under 40 years old, according to CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets. And they love the glitz and glam: donning Louis Vuitton handbags and Richemont watches, sipping Dom Perignon champagne, and cruising around in Audis. “Chinese consumers have buoyed and kept the luxury markets around the world solvent,” said Shaun Rein, Shanghai-based managing director of the China Market Research Group. In addition to clamoring for designer goods at stores in Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong, Chinese tourists have dominated sales at flagship locations on New York’s Fifth Avenue and throughout Europe, where the goods are about 30% cheaper than they are on mainland China. A Louis Vuitton boutique in London was recently forced to limit shoppers to three purchases to make sure they would have enough left, said Kirk Cheyfitz, CEO of global marketing agency Story Worldwide, at the Bloomberg China Investment Strategies conference earlier this month. Playing the trend CLSA forecasts that China will become the world’s largest market for luxury goods over the course of the next decade, accounting for 44% of global sales by 2020, from 15% today. Emerging markets are hot: Place your bets Though they do take a hit during economic downturns, Magoon Capital Chief Executive Christian Magoon said the luxury brand companies are still sound investments. “Luxury brand companies are solid investments over the long term because it’s very difficult for new players to enter the space,” Magoon said. “These brands have tradition and status that makes them unique and gives them the ability to price things as high as they want.” Chinese buyers are Louis Vuitton’s biggest customers already, according to CLSA, and sales will likely keep growing alongside an increase in the number of Chinese millionaires.

Several floors up in the labels sleek headquarters on Rue du Pont Neuf, theres an endearing scruffiness to the Vuitton mens design studio, with bolts of fabric piled across tables, drifts of detritus, a lack of milk for coffee. The epicentre of scruff is Kim Jones own office, and at the eye of a storm of bric-a-brac sits the designer himself, the man charged with f creating menswear for the worlds most valuable luxury-goods brand 16.7 billion, according to the latest figures. If Jones doesnt dress the part, he also doesnt act it, which is refreshing. Indeed, before we sit down to talk, Jones whisks me through the studio where fittings for the catwalk show are ongoing, introducing me to show stylist Alister Mackie and most of the menswear team, before rifling through the racks and talking me through the collection in minutiae. Ive been to lots of designers studios the night before the show, big and small. Jones level of bouncing-off-the-walls enthusiasm is, sadly, not standard. Theres no grandeur to Jones, no world-weariness, no faux boredom nullifying the effort behind his work. He says love a lot: he loves his job, he loves selling clothes, he loves the opportunities that Louis Vuitton provides him with as a designer. 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.

While we didn’t walk away with a Damier print bag, we did pick up some tips that we’re definitely using for our next getaway. Do put your toiletries underneath your shoes. Your makeup bag or dopp kit will be a more structured item that will keep your gorgeous shoes from getting smushed. Do start by laying out everything you plan on packing in outfits. That way, if you are missing an accessory or packing one piece that goes with absolutely nothing else, you can fix it before you start putting things in your bag. Do use your jacket as a garment bag! Since you almost always pack some kind of outerwear, whether it’s a trench, a leather jacket, or a blazer, you can use it to protect your most delicate items. Put the piece or pieces most likely to snag inside the jacket and close it up. Now, nothing can grab!

While Vuitton is still the worlds most valuable luxury brand, its losing ground to competitors such as Gucci and Prada ( 1913:HK ) as demand wanes for the iconic LV monogrammed handbag. A report last month by consultancy Millward Brown Optimor estimated that Vuittons brand value declined 12 percent over the past year. LVMH in April reported its weakest fashion and leather goods revenues in more than three years as sales flattened in China. As consumers make room for those luxuries that make them feel better by trading down on other items, it is the middle-of-the-road brands, such as Vuitton, that have suffered, Millward Brown Optimor said. Delphine Arnaults task will be to give the brand a more exclusive aura, deemphasizing its ubiquitous monogrammed canvas bags and introducing costlier leather bags.

Vuitton raised prices by Takashi Murakami Louis Vuitton 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.

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.

(Photo: Louis Vuitton) Related This 2013 autumn/winter season will mark the first time that Louis Vuitton manufactures a product designed by an artist from the Middle East. As part of it’s autumn/winter Foulard D’artistes (‘Artists’ Scarves’) project, fashion powerhouse Louis Vuitton will adopt designs by three international street artists: Eko Nughoro from Indonesia, EINE from the UK and El-Seed from Tunisia, on it’s emblematic giant silk square. El-Seed is a Tunisian-born visual artist who paints large-scale murals of decorative Arabic script, in a style he describes as “caligrafitti”. He has painted bright murals in cities across the globe, from New York to Mecca to his Tunisian hometown Gabes. El-Seed first explored the art of graffiti in 1998 in Paris, where he spent his childhood. Later, when he moved to North America, he started combining graffiti with his passion for Arabic calligraphy (usually associated with the Quran and religious scripture). The artist likes to mix traditional script and contemporary pop-culture, giving birth to a distinctive urban graffiti. On his rendetition of the Louis Vuitton scarf, El-Seed illustrated four verses from a poem dubbed “Venice Carnival” by late Palestinian writer Taha Muhammad Ali. “I gave an homage to Venice, Italy through a few verses from poet Taha Muhammad Ali, a tribute to the beauty and elegance of this city and it’s openness to the Eastern world,” the artist announced on Facebook.

How the Louis Vuitton Cup changed the sport

Somebody will work the metal. Somebody will polish it. Somebody will shine it. Each time it is our challenge to get the best stone setter, the best polisher, make a team and make them work on a piece together. We are very lucky in Paris for historic reasons we have the best craftsmen in the world whose skills have been passed from one generation to another. From Louis XIV they were already making jewelry so the craftsman has passed the skills from generation to generation. How many pieces do you make per design? Some of them are unique. Some of them there will be more. It really depends.

How To Pack A Carry-on Bag From Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton exhibit: It’s the bag, stupid

A visitor takes a picture of fashion creations displayed at the Louis Vuitton-Marc Jacobs exhibit in the Art Decoratifs Museum in Paris, March 8, 2012.

Do put your toiletries underneath your shoes. Your makeup bag or dopp kit will be a more structured item that will keep your gorgeous shoes from getting smushed. Do start by laying out everything you plan on packing in outfits. That way, if you are missing an accessory or packing one piece that goes with absolutely nothing else, you can fix it before you start putting things in your bag. Do use your jacket as a garment bag! Since you almost always pack some kind of outerwear, whether it’s a trench, a leather jacket, or a blazer, you can use it to protect your most delicate items. Put the piece or pieces most likely to snag inside the jacket and close it up. Now, nothing can grab! Do put your shoes in a V formation, with the heels against the side structure of the bag so they can’t be snapped. Flats go on the inside since they can bear a little more weight and pressure.

Daughter’s Got a Brand New Bag, and It’s Louis Vuitton

There’s a small clue in the first room: portraits of the two men visit this site hang side by side, both sporting http://www.wsmisports.com/louisvuittonoutlet.html mustaches in the style of their age. “They’re both visionaries, though they would be the last to admit it,” said museum curator Pamela Golbin, “and they both lived an exact same story at a decisive moment in fashion.” Louis Vuitton faced industrialization of the 19th century and new train travel while Marc Jacobs was confronted with 1990s’ changing demands for marketing “making fashion truly globalized for the first time,” Golbin said. The story began for Louis Vuitton as a trunk-packer for rich Parisians, a job in which he was able to hone a mastery of every bolt, lock and corner of travel cases from across the French capital. He built on his knowledge, finally opening his own house in 1854. The Orient Express was new and fashionable, and the meteoric rise of haute couture under Charles Frederic Worth meant better-dressed women went on trips with more and more clothes that needed cases to fit them in. Such was the demand that the norm in the late-19th century norm, as one display shows, was for a traveling lady to take a staggering 30 large cases on each trip. From this a thousand trunks were born, all perfectly preserved with their original wax coatings and all viewable at the exhibit: hat trunks, toiletries trunks, trunks that pulled out as a chest of drawers, metal trunks for humid countries. For the trendy yet tired, there was a trunk that folded out into a bed. As it still does under Jacobs, the house had a sense for the avant-garde as early as 1890: one gargantuan case boasts the title the “Never Full Bag.” Then there was the radical facelift of the 1990s. Glossy fashion magazines landed and globalized demands meant that labels had to up their game and expand, or sink.

Displayed in the Icon Room, directly to the left when one enters the store, its part of the pre-fall collection designed by Michael Kors. Dipped in sequins, its a fresh take on the Speedy, which was created in the 30s and was the first handbag sold by Louis Vuitton. Louis Vuitton is combining history and legacy, while adjusting to modern life and fashion, Dobkin said.

iPhone Leaks Can Buy You a Louis Vuitton Bag, If You’re Smart

Shell be the No. 2 executive in a unit that accounts for half of LVMHs pretax earnings, evidence that shes being groomed for a top jobperhaps the top jobat the Paris-based luxury giant. While Vuitton is still the worlds most valuable luxury brand, its losing ground to competitors such as Gucci and Prada ( 1913:HK ) as demand wanes for the iconic LV monogrammed handbag. A report last month by consultancy Millward Brown Optimor estimated that Vuittons brand value declined 12 percent over the past year. LVMH in April reported its weakest fashion and leather goods revenues in more than three years as sales flattened in China. As consumers make room for those luxuries that make them feel better by trading down on other items, it is the middle-of-the-road brands, such as Vuitton, that have suffered, Millward Brown Optimor said. Delphine Arnaults task will be to give the brand a more exclusive aura, deemphasizing its ubiquitous monogrammed canvas bags and introducing costlier leather bags.

The guy in question is Sonny Dickson , an industrious fellow from Melbourne, Australia who maintains a blog thats chock-full of pictures showing leaked iPhone parts. Philip Elmer-Dewitt over at Fortune says the finance magazine contacted Sonny Dickson via Skype to ask him about his iPhone leaks, but also about himself. A cagy Dickson tells Fortune hes old enough to drink, with Dewitt pointing out that the legal drinking age in Melbourne is 18. Hes not exactly open about his sources either, telling the publication that he has some contacts who simply work for Apple in China. Asked about the money hes made with his iPhone leaks, Dickson said, I could go over to Louis Vuitton today and buy one of their bags with the money I made this month. He admits the money he’s earned got him a lot of hate, but he also makes his cash from fixing iPhones and iPods. However, this summer he’s also made a handsome profit from selling iPhone 5C cases, which fetch $250 / 190 apiece, he says. Dickson says IPs from Apples headquarters hit his web site more than 900 times last month, adding that U.S. Homeland Security visited 67 times. Some people think I may be breaking the law, but they don’t really know what I do, he tells the magazine. I’m not breaking any laws that other people don’t do.

How do you select your pieces, Simona? I have a very discerning fashionable eye. It’s something I think you’re born with and develops with life’s journey and influences. I select my pieces based on the notion – that timeless beauty is what’s always in style and forever will be. I do like to feature trends, but then we all become slaves to the latest trend, rather than what looks flattering on us an an individual. I know my clientele and I know what they like and dislike & style my boutique accordingly. I sell designers such as Chanel which speaks to every woman of every age.
