Louis Vuitton, With a Touch of the Southwest

Victoria Beckham Shows Off Louis Vuitton Look On Instagram

Wherever Mr. Jones goes, he never loses sight of Vuittons sensibility. I adore a bandana print; Mr. Jones transformed them into shirts, including an oversize version that evoked a caftan, as well as scarves and ties. Those weathered plaid shirts? He created a slightly oversize shirt in super-fine, washed cotton. One of the red, white and blue plaid sports jackets was actually a jersey, making it travel-friendly.

Louis Vuitton brings bags of class to Tel Aviv

The only Louis Vuitton store in Israel relocated there in mid-June and is one of only seven of their stores in the world with a VIP room. At present, the room features the Rare and Exotic Collection, a group of handbags made with variations of united states animal skin and Louis Vuitton canvas. The collection also features the most expensive bag in the store, the Bowling handbag. At NIS 70,000, the Bowling is made of Louis Vuitton canvas, python and crocodile skins. We have one of the seven VIP rooms [in the world] because there was such a demand here, Ayelet Dobkin, a publicist for Louis Vuitton said. This store is three times bigger than the first Louis Vuitton store built in Israel. Louis Vuitton Sales Associate Asaf Mizrahi agreed that it was vital to add the exclusivity to the Ramat Aviv store. One of the core values of Louis Vuitton, he said, is rarity. 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.

LVMH chief’s daughter to take top role at Louis Vuitton

Top British designer Julien MacDonald (L) smiles as he looks up at Delphine Arnault (R) ahead of the..

Along with younger brother Antoine, who is currently chief executive of luxury Italian shoe maker Berluti, Bernard Arnault’s eldest daughter Delphine has been groomed since her teens to take senior roles within LVMH. A graduate of prestigious French business school EDHEC and the London School of Economics, she first learned the ropes of the family-controlled business as a teenage sales girl at a Dior boutique. She now sits on the LVMH board. In her role at Dior, Arnault was credited for bringing creative director Raf Simons on board last year after the departure of John Galliano. Simons’ modern take on heritage Dior designs has since met with critical and commercial success, propelling sales and demand for couture clothes. In December, Christian Dior Couture reported sales for the half-year to October 31 up 18 percent at 632 million euros ($840 million) and said margins had improved. Delphine Arnault’s father is chairman, chief executive and controlling shareholder of LVMH and the wealthiest man in France, controlling 60 luxury brands and a business that spans fashion, perfume, wine and watches. Bernard Arnault caused an uproar in France when he sought Belgian citizenship last September – a move he said was meant to protect a foundation designed to control his family’s holdings in LVMH if he dies, not to dodge new wealth taxes.

(Florian Holzherr) By Adam Tschorn June 10, 2013, 2:21 p.m. LAS VEGAS — A Louis Vuitton-commissioned James Turrell installation, which recently opened at the French luxury brand’s City Center store here, is not only one of the most intimate and unexpected ways to experience the artist’s oeuvre, it may just be the best antidote we’ve found yet to counteract the swirling, light-caused disconnectedness of Sin City chaos. Titled “Akhob,” (a word from Egypt’s Amarna period that means “pure water,” according to a guide), the permanent installation, which opened on the fourth floor of the Louis Vuitton boutique last month, is the largest of Turrell’s “ganzfeld” (light field) installations to date. It consists of two chambers, each with a circular opening, and a pattern of slowly changing light, which repeats every 24 minutes. Viewers are suffused in a shifting palette of vibrant pinks, electric blues and a peculiar shade of orange that makes the circular orb space at the room’s center look like the surface of the sun itself. At times the edges of the two chambers are clearly visible, at other times they bleed into a disorientingly uniform field of color. Although I’m certainly no art critic, and my knowledge of Turrell’s oeuvre prior to “Akhob” consisted of a partial walk-through of his current LACMA retrospective (though in fairness that included being slid, MRI-like, into a metal sphere called “Light Reignfall” where, for about 12 minutes psychedelic kaleidoscope images swirled, eddied and broke like waves over my optical nerves), I can say from personal experience that after a day and a half in Las Vegas, I’ve yet to find a better course correcter than a half-hour stint bathed in the glow of “Akhob.” Pure water indeed. “Akhob” is the latest of three projects commissioned by Louis Vuitton , including a modular, light-based sculpture called “First Blush, Oct. 2005” that was created for Vuitton’s Champs-Elysees flagship store, and a series of 2006 photographs juxtaposing one of the brand’s iconic wardrobe trunks against the Arizona desert landscape of Turrell’s ongoing Roden Crater project.

Louis Vuitton Loses Ground as World’s Most Valuable Luxury Brand

Photograph by: Francois Guillot , AFP/Getty Images PARIS – The Louis Vuitton man moved from the eastern Himalayas of last season to the sunny West Coast of the United States for this spring-summer 2014. “This was the American road trip, just enjoying and celebrating Americana from NASA through to the traditional things such as bandanas,” said designer Kim Jones, breaking a sweat backstage Thursday at the Paris show that was held inside a scorching conservatory. The collection ranged from the road trip, as imagined in khaki parkas with travel badges and cotton printed bandanas, to a whole mix of different American styles: From sportswear, as in white, blue and red silk graph check tailored shorts, to Gatsby-style evening suits in raw kimono silk with a classy curved lower part. As ever, when travelling anywhere Vuitton-style, don’t expect to rough it. Stylish and coiffed David Beckham looked approvingly on from the front row. Silhouettes were tight and masculine. The 41 classy looks were fairly eclectic and so served up a little something for everyone.

Louis Vuitton, spring 2014.

Thats no coincidence. Oddly enough, the words Miuccia Prada used to describe her womenswear collection that season, Minimal Baroque, were echoed by Dior Homme designer Kris Van Assche today (thats just an interesting aside). You got the feeling Riccardo Tiscis Givenchy was just playing to the crowd the crowd of baying, rottweiler-branded fans, rather than the fashion crowd. There was a mixed reaction to his print-heavy offering. Some saw it as a commercial goldmine, but I dont think anyone, honestly, could see it as fresh, new or really exciting. A look from Riccardo Tisci’s spring 2014 collection for Givenchy I had no urge to find out anything more about those garments.

While the bagmaker owned by LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA (MC) remains the most valuable luxury brand for an eighth straight year, rivals are better managing the trade-off between exclusivity and affordability, according to the report. The value of PPR SAs (PP) Guccis brand surged 48 percent to $12.7 billion, ranking it the third in the luxury list, while Pradas worth soared 63 percent to $9.45 billion, placing it fourth, Millward Brown Optimor said. Hermes stayed in second place at $19.1 billion, unchanged from last year. 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 that are feeling the impact of this polarisation, Millward Brown Optimor said in a statement. Rolex, Chanel, Cartier, Burberry, Fendi and Coach rounded out the top 10 most valuable luxury brands in the study.
