America’s Cup sponsor Louis Vuitton wants a refund
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.
LVMH China Watch Sales Decline Offset by Overseas Buying
Oh, good grief. Because obviously, you dont have enough shoes in your collection already, July 15 marks the launch of the Louis Vuitton Shoe Salon (a.k.a. heaven) within the department stores Shoe Hall. Alongside a carefully curated selection of the brands luxury footwear, therell also be a limited edition LV heel on sale, titled the “Pump London.” As exclusive as it sounds, it’s actually even more so. Turns out, there are only 24 pairs of the pump being made, so expect hair pulling and elbow jabbing. Pics reveal the heel is as glorious as we’d hoped, made up in a mix of silk, satin, metallic calfskin blend, and hand-embroidered sequins. So seriously, start planning your winning tactics.
Investigators also suspect that Wirapol killed a man in a hit-and-run accident while driving a Volvo late at night three years ago. Critics say Wirapol is an extreme example of a wider crisis in Buddhism, which has become marginalized by a shortage of monks and an increasingly secular society. The meditative lifestyle of the monkhood offers little allure to young Buddhists raised on shopping malls, smartphones and the Internet. But the case of Wirapol has also shown the benefits of social media, says Songkran Artchariyasarp, a lawyer and Buddhist activist. “Buddhists all around the world can learn from this case,” said Songkran, who heads a Facebook group that collects tips about wayward monks.
Louis Vuitton Cup: On the water Images of Day 7
Sales are down but they are more than compensated by sales to Chinese outside the country, he said, without specifying the period for the decline. Swiss watch exports to China fell more… 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. Luxury companies from Prada SpA (1913) to Burberry Group Plc (BRBY) have been seeking to tap consumers in emerging Asia, who are purchasing more high-end bags, shoes, suits and jewelry as incomes have risen. Sales of watches and jewelry accounted for 10 percent of the LVMH groups revenue last year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
A monk with Louis Vuitton luggage causes huge scandal
Louis Vuitton, the posh French retailer that has been a primary financial backer of the competition, wants $3 million refunded because so few teams have entered. Louis Vuittonas initial sponsorship was for $10 million, according to an Americaas Cup source. Its contract was based on at least eight teams taking part in the Louis Vuitton Cup, a round-robin playoff to determine which team will ultimately sail against Oracle Team USA in the Americaas Cup championship. There are three teams entered in the Louis Vuitton Cup: Italyas Luna Rossa, Swedenas Artemis Racing and Emirates Team New Zealand. Since the 1980s, there have been anywhere from 7 to 13 teams taking part in the competition. Several potential challengers a from Korea, France, Australia, Spain and Italy a pulled out of the Americaas Cup, many citing the financial burden of competing at sailingas highest level. Louis Vuitton can get a $1 million rebate for each team less than six that participate, the Cup source said. That would mean the company is entitled to get $3 million back. Should any of the remaining teams pull out of the competition a which they have hinted they might do a Louis Vuitton would be entitled to even more money back. A spokesman for the Americaas Cup, which began this week and runs until September, said that Louis Vuitton’s actions were “a very old story.” “There’s nothing new here,” said America’s Cup spokesman Tim Jeffery .
