Louis Vuitton x Billie Achilleos Leather Animals

08 June 2011, 15.06 | Posted in Art, Design, Fashion, bags | 2 comments »


 To Celebrate the launch of their ‘Mon  Monogram’ service for small leather accessories, Louis Vuitton collaborates with artist Billie Achilleos via Chameleon Visual on a collection of animal  representations made of louis Vuitton Leather accessories.

 Each animal highlights an element in the design of the products. The Armadillo was to highlight the soft yet durable quality of the leather. The Chameleon displays the variety of colour. The Grasshopper is constructed from products with zips and poppers that make satisfying noises like that of the musically gifted insect. And finally my favorite, the Beaver, who’s functionality chops wood, builds dams…and provides cleaver ways of organising ones life in men’s bags and wallets

 The video above highlights the process while you can see pictures of the animals up close on the flip courtesy of Billie Achilleos. Love to see women in the arts getting their shine!

Louis Vuitton Handbags Autumn 2011

 Louis Vuitton Handbags Autumn 2011

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again, when it comes to Louis Vuitton runway shows, keep an eye on the bags for they are  the label’s money maker. The Autumn 2011 collection shown during Paris Fashion Week was overall a strong one, with what looks like four or five different themes, starting with the logo collection, which was highlighted by bags with frame silhouettes (which Miu Miu also showed). Generally frame bags have an automatic vintage feel and LV’s are no exception, though the glossy logo leather somehow gives them a gangster moll edge, which adds to their appeal. There was also a satin logo group, and a tote handbag  collection, featuring rich colors like burgundy and green. Finally a fleece fur group, the kind of bag you buy when you are a very rich girl blessed with multiple LVs and are looking for something novel and different. A very solid, back-to-basics collection that should do great at retail. Many more images on the next page.

PFW Video: Kate Moss Smoking For Louis Vuitton

10 March 2011, 15.07 | Posted in Fashion Week, Models, Runway Show, celebrity | No comments »


No idea Kate Moss had been retired from the runway for seven years prior to her appearance yesterday on Marc Jacob’s Paris Fashion Week runway for Louis Vuitton Autumn 2011. Or that the day she appeared was some sort of anti-smoking day. In any case, her puffing and half-exposed bum are garnering lots of mainsream news presentation, though we’re still not certain if this is a plus for LV or not. In a way, it’s already overexposed, then again, having Kate sprinkle her magic fairy dust on brands has proven more or less to be money in the bank.

 Louis Vuitton Ailleures Canvas Totes Summer 2011

How perfectly these Louis Vuitton “Ailleures” (in English, “somewhere else”) canvas tote bags perfectly evoke the seductive allure of lazy days spent on the beach. Available in one of three different silkscreen prints, titled ”Promenade,” “Riviera” and “Adventure,” the bags come in two sizes, small for city days when you want to hold on to memories of the beach and another large enough to handle a towel, flip-flops, and a handful of sand. See the other two styles on the next page.

ZhuZhuShanghaiTVPresenter 401x540 Louis Vuitton Influencers Accessories Lookbook Spring 2011

The fact that brands place their products on celebs is a well known practice, but it’s a little less known that they actively seek out folks recognized as “influencers,” people who are known for planting the seeds for new trends the masses eventually follow. Louis Vuitton makes the practice a public one by having a combination of celebs and influencers model its necklaces, bracelets, earrings and of course scarves for its Spring 2011 accessories lookbook. Shanghai tv presenter Zhu Zhu is featured above and there are more on the next page, including Keith Richard’s baby girl. Via Fashionlvr.
