kimkourtney LVMH Buys Up 14 Percent Of Hermes

Luxury-goods holding house LVMH (Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton), whose names include heavy hitters Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Celine and Givenchy among many others, must be enjoying the returns on its luxury leather brands since it just pruchased 14 percent of super-status fashion house Hermes, most famous for its “Kelly” and “Birkin” (carried by Kim Kardashian above) bag styles. The rest of the company’s shares are held by members of the Hermes family. LVMH claims it’s not trying to attempt a total takeover, but given its aggressive history (check its epic attempt to grab Gucci), not everyone is buying that.

Givenchy continues to devour the accessorries game, as illustrated by this quietly commanding  leopard purse. It’s not new but the rust-colored spot combined with the hardware and the neat “Givenchy” stamp make it  fresh. Two more after the flip. Via WWD.

Kim, Kourt And Dash Come to New York City!

KimKourt Kim, Kourt And Dash Come to New York City!

Apparently Kourtney wasn’t joking about her plans to move to New York, and according to the NY Post part of that move includes opening another Dash store in SoHo [Update: Racked says it's at 119 Spring between Mercer and Greene] on Spring Street. Here she is with her little sister Kim strolling the streets of the City. Kim is not fooling around with her Gucci fur, over-the-knee Fendi boots and Birken bag, and both of them went over the top with their hat game. Love them or hate them, you have to appreciate how this family has given voice to glamorous fashion, eschewing the relaxed denim-cut-off looks that have become de rigueur just because they’re popular among 17-year-old models.

L-R Kinight Bag, Travel Bag

The Burberry Prorsum knight  bag seemed to have gone through a slight makeover, and  is now called a travel bag . The lining is now chequered, it costs about $800 less,  the studs are round instead of square,  gunmetal instead of silver but the dimensions are about  the same. So if like me this bag gave you fever, it’s now available at net-a-porter. On the next page images of the two.

Chanel Accessories Spring/Summer 2011

 Chanel Accessories Spring/Summer 2011

Chanel’s spring 2011 ready-to-wear collection had that same overly sensible theme of a lot of the more prestigous houses, as in boxy longish dresses, very little reveal of curves, sensible shoes….I understand the need to appeal to the women actually buying these clothes, especially in these tough economic times, but honestly I weep! But anyway, the point of this post is to zero in on Chanel’s accessories, which seem to be the only thing that matters these days among the heavy hitters designers, as in those with a large boutique chain business where rent must be paid. So that being said Chanel’s bags were a delight, very covetable, and somewhere in my future there exists a pair of velvet sandals. More after the flip, including closeups on some very neat earrings.

Starstyling Spring 2011

 Starstyling Spring 2011

Berlin-based Star Styling, whose Spring collection we viewed while visiting Capsule earlier this week, is know for its non-serious edge, but behind the joi-de-vivre attitude is a seriously strong color and materials story, which shows itself in the tops above. New technology materials are used to detail a down-to-earth, gauzy cotton for a look that is very new millennium moonage daydream. More after the flip, including some denim dresses and bags. Fun yes, but clever, too.

Claw12 Claw Key Chain And A Peek At Spring 2011

While at the Capsule trade show Tuesday, we of course visited Claw to see what the brand was up to. This ultra-awesome Claw key chain leaped out and were suprised to discover that it’s not new and has been in the Claw store for a minute. Nice, right? Especially since it has a weaponish feel to it. On the other side, the “Clawingdales” tote from Claw’s Autumn 2010 collection and a look at a tee from the Spring 2011 line.
