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.

Hermès Kelly Relax

In step with the move away from overly constructed bags, Hermes has reissued the Kelly with a style called “Relax,” which reflects the nature of its leather. This is a big-tote-sized bag and is quite a lot slouchier than it appears in this image. And though it may be more laid back in appearance, the price of $11,000 is right in line with the rest of Hermes’ super-pricey offerings.

HermesSS3 Hermes Spring 2010 Accessories

Hermes’ presentation for its summer 2010 accessory collection is artsy as can be (aka, I’m confused) with a theme entitled “Tales to Be Told.” Definitately the campaign has an Alice-in-Wonderland feel, albeit minus the color. The bags shown on this page are the best part for certain and lovers of cleanly-line classics should find them swoon-worthy. Next page there are some hats, another bag and shoes.
