How to Pack a Carry-On Bag From Louis Vuitton
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.

Louis Vuitton Bags Stolen From Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport
One of the core values of Louis Vuitton, he said, is rarity. http://www.avlogbook.com/louis-vuitton-outlet.html Its why they dont overstock the store, only receiving one or two of each of the bags that they hold in the back. One example of this is the iconic Speedy bag in blue. 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 exhibit: It’s the bag, stupid
At last night’s event to celebrate the new personalization atelier in the brand’s SoHo store (you can get everything from a luggage tag to a purse to a trunk hand-painted or hot-stamped), we witnessed an incredible demonstration by expert packer Lamar of how exactly to fit a week’s worth of wardrobe into one suitcase petite enough to go in an overhead compartment. 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!
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. In the short term, that could depress sales growth, as LVMH also has said it plans to open fewer Vuitton boutiques.
Daughter’s Got a Brand New Bag, and It’s Louis Vuitton
Just a week after samples of Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2012 collection were lifted from a Paris train , thieves have made off with loads of Louis Vuitton from Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport! Women’s Wear Daily reports that a small group of masked bandits (yes, real life bandits) overtook four airport employees and a security guard at one of the terminals and nabbed ten skids containing $400,000 worth of Louis Vuitton merch. While there aren’t too many more details, we have to wonder: ten skids? How many Speedys can five thieves carry?? Stay tuned for updates — hey, maybe the leather goods will turn up with the Marc Jacobs samples. Those would be some seriously fashionable thieves.
