Five reasons everyone should own a Louis Vuitton S

01:00, 1/1/1970 .. 0 comments .. Link

 

 

We’ve already covered why you need to own a Balenciaga motorcycle bag and a Chanel flap bag, but those obviously aren’t the only iconic bags that a woman needs in her wardrobe. Your bag collection shouldn’t be missing a Louis Vuitton Speedy, but if it is, we’ve got a few things you might want to consider.

 

1. In the world of designer handbags, they’re relatively affordable: Despite the fact that the price of a Speedy has gone up by over $100 since I bought mine a few years ago, they’re still something of a steal in the great scheme of designer bags. Speedies start at $665 for the 25 cm monogram version, and for an iconic bag from one of the biggest luxury companies on the planet, you’re not going to find a better deal. Bags with similar storied histories and famous followings will set you back thousands of dollars.

2. Don’t like monogram? There are dozens of other options: Monogram canvas may be the most popular material for this particular bag, but don’t let that fool you in to thinking that it’s the only one. A lot of people aren’t fond of logo prints (I happen to be one of them), and for those people, there are Damier and Epi leather options always available, as well as whatever graced the runways that season. Fall/Winter 2010 will be of particular interest to Speedy lovers – Vuitton showed nothing but dozens of different Speedies in a variety of leathers and exotics. If you want logos,replica Designer, however, Vuitton comes up with a new version practically every season – watercolor, roses, cherries,replica miu miu bags, pop-art pandas, graffiti. I could go on, but you get the idea.

3. Louis Vuitton bags are practically indestructible: This one requires little explanation for a true bag lover – even people that aren’t Vuitton fans know that their bags are historically very well-made, particularly the traditional styles. Also, if your Speedy were to require repair, Vuitton has better service for those kinds of things that almost any other brand I can think of,Miu Miu handbags, save for Hermes. As I mentioned previously, however, good luck finding an Hermes bag for less than a grand.

4. The shape can fit in any woman’s wardrobe: Speedies range in size from petite to quite large, and if you’d rather not wear a bag on your arm, Vuitton offers a crossbody strap to keep you hands-free. The brand’s purists will caution against using it, but crossbodies have become so very modern in the past year that wearing a Speedy as a messenger might actually be a good way to update it. Once you’ve decided how to carry it, even the 25cm version has plenty of room for all of your daily essentials.

5. If it was good enough for Audrey Hepburn, it should be good enough for most of us: Grace Kelly may have been a fan of Hermés, but Audrey Hepburn was continually photographed wearing her favorite Louis Vuitton Speedy. Some people may say that the bag is played out, but don’t let people who chase labels dissuade you from enjoying a bag that has an important historical place in the lineage of the luxury handbag. With all of the different size and design permutations, there’s a Speedy out there to suit every style.

Fashion Week Handbags Louis Vuitton

01:00, 1/1/1970 .. 0 comments .. Link

 

 

In a show with such an astounding number of beautiful handbags, I barely know where to begin. Who would have thought after last season’s tribal tassel disaster that Marc Jacobs would come up with such a feminine, pretty, and functional collection of handbags at Louis Vuitton. I would have been the last one to guess it – in fact, I remarked to a friend last week that I was barely even looking forward to the Vuitton show.

But that’s the genius of Marc Jacobs. Just when you think that you’ve got him pegged, when you think that you know what he’s going to do and how you’re going to feel about it,replica miu miu bags, he veers off in the opposite direction at full speed and gives you the last thing you could have ever thought he would come up with.

This season,replica bags, he took us straight back to 1940s France, with tea-length tweeds, tailored waists, and bosom-hugging dirndls. The look reminded me of the French farm girls in the opening sequence of Inglourious Basterds,Miu Miu handbags, but with an obviously high-end, Parisian twist. It was a beautiful collection, made only more beautiful by the gobs and gobs of gloriously detailed, traditionally wrought handbags in every material that one could imagine: crocodile, ostrich, leather, fur, lace, satin, beads, you name it. Almost all of the bags were plays on the traditional Speedy shape, with a few wristlets thrown in for good measure. Many Vuitton fans have been lamenting the loss of a certain amount of traditional from the staid fashion house – for those customers, this collection is a shot of sunshine straight from handbag heaven.

Event Recap Cocktail Hour with Daniel Lalonde of

01:00, 1/1/1970 .. 0 comments .. Link

 

 

In rather hectic fashion, Shannon and I made our way to New York last Monday for the unique chance to meet and greet the Chief Operating Officer of Louis Vuitton North America, Mr. Daniel Lalonde. When we received the invitation last week whilst being on vacation,replica Designer, there was no real hesitation before realizing that we had to take advantage of this unique opportunity.

The Location

Louis Vuitton Corporate Showroom NYC

Shannon and I had high hopes that the event was going to take place in the flagship store on 5th Avenue, in our fantasies we had envisioned Vuitton clearing a whole floor off eager shoppers and letting the event attendees roam the palace freely.

The disappointment was only faint when a kind SA in the store pointed us to the adjacent building down 57th Street,replica miu miu bags, where part of Louis Vuitton N.A.’s corporate headquarters are located. To my pleasant surprise, the showroom was presenting beautiful pieces of LV’s fall collection, some of which I captured on camera.

 

The Crowd

Louis Vuitton Corporate Showroom NYC

Overall, I believe a good 25 people circled in and out of the showroom during the two hours that we chatted, networked, analyzed and cooperated. The publishers invited were mainly local New York fashion bloggers, some of which included our good friends Daniel and Rebecca Saynt, Yuli Ziv, Wendy Lam and the ever-so-fabulous Gala Darling. There were more, sadly I had not the chance to meet everyone.

The Challenge

Random Capture

Purpose of the cocktail & hors d’?“uvre hour with Vuitton’s CEO and the delightful Vuitton staff was to continue the ongoing dialogue between the fashion house and us online fashion publishers and bloggers.

Generally speaking, the big challenge faced by independent fashion bloggers is the hesitant recognition and support by well-established fashion houses. Despite the Internet realm and its fashion bloggers having massive customer outreach, strong influence on buying decisions and readerships that challenge long-time print magazines, the relationship between online publishers and companies like Vuitton, Hermes, Gucci and the likes, is still in its infancy. To continue the relationship analogy, fashion houses and traditional print media enjoy a long-lasting marriage with kids, while online publishers are just out on their first date, clumsy, nervous and dripping ice cream on the date’s shoes.

The Dialogue

Louis Vuitton Cerf Clutch ~$2575Shannon and I actually had the opportunity to introduce ourselves and have a chat with Mr. Lalonde when he entered the showroom. To our astonishment, he seemed very receptive to our ideas and genuinely interested in our suggestions, requests and input. Not that we expected otherwise, but it was a very refreshing moment to realize that we were being heard and that we had (hopefully) contributed to paving the way for a closer relationship between publishers and LV. A very cool feeling to converse with a corporate head figure that makes decision on a daily basis that have an effect on millions of people. Humbling, really.

The CEO was not the only corporate figure in attendance that night. It was a sleek gentlemen who I met near the entrance of the showroom,replica bags, who turned out to be the LV Director Of Advertising Eric Lichtmess. I noticed a yet-so-slight accent in his voice, it turned out that he was indeed from a city near where I grew up in Germany. We engaged in a very interesting discussion on general advertising strategies, Vuitton’s future plans in terms of online presence and devised plans for a possible collaboration. Very nice chap, a delight to talk to.

It was an absolute pleasure to meet everyone in attendance, including the PR managers (thank you Lesley) and other bloggers. Shannon and I had a great time and left the event with a feeling of accomplishment. The travels may have been crazy hectic, but there really is not a price tag on having opportunities, such as this one.

Beyonce Style Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork

You all thought we would never have to talk about the fug that is the Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork again. You all are so mistaken. Come to think of it,replica Designer, I can’t recall seeing someone carrying this bag in public,Miu Miu handbags, until now. But Beyonce has a golden ticket; she owns and even carries one of 24 of the Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork Bags. If your body was as bootylicious as hers, would you also carry this bag? Any chance that you think it looks better on an actual person than in the ads?

All I can say is that I am not crying over my loss not owning this handbag. :lol:

More images below! And a special thanks to PB reader Jo An for sending me the pics!

Ask Megs Louis Vuitton Speedy versus Neverfull

01:00, 1/1/1970 .. 0 comments .. Link

 ,Miu Miu handbags

 

Hi,

I go on your site daily and love it!!. I love to read your reviews and have bought some of the bags you have recommended. I have a quick question. I am torn between two Louis Vuitton bags. I am interested in the Neverfull MM and the Speedy 35. I am going with the Damier version. I am looking long term and would be interested in your opinion.

I am more traditional than not and I am a stay at home mom. I did purchase a YSL muse bag over Christmas. I got the cranberry color. It really is beautiful. Also, I am 40 years old. I want it to be age appropriate.

Thanks so much,

Jenna E.

It has been a while since my last installment of Ask Megs. In fact, it has been 2 years. We get dozens of emails daily and many of them are questions about bags. Because I spend all day researching,replica Designer, looking at, and shopping for bags, I love to help anyone else out in their quest. This week I am spotlighting Jenna E., who is torn between purchasing the Louis Vuitton Damier Neverfull and the Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy.

 

Jenna, it comes down to preference and what use you need from your handbag. That first line I just told you is entirely vague and probably annoying to read. But I promise to clarify my feelings on each bags, which hopefully will help you pick which is the best fit for you.

Louis Vuitton Speedy

The Louis Vuitton Speedy is one of the most classic, most iconic, most recognizable handbags of all time. Many designers have tried to channel the Speedy when designing a bag, but nothing beats the original. The shape alone is worth buying (which is a major part of it being a Speedy). Now comes in personal preference. The Speedy does not fit over your shoulder, at all. My Speedy bags sit at the crux of my arm, and depending on how much I put in the bag they end up being heavy and hurting my arm a bit. So I just use it as a hand-held bag, and that is the true use. If you are looking for a bag to go over your shoulder, this is not the bag for you.

Furthermore,replica bags, the Speedy does not keep its shape very well. The larger the Speedy size, the more you will lose the shape. Also, the more you put in the bag, the more it will lose its shape. There are aftermarket items used to give the shape back to your bag, but without that, your Speedy will slouch. An inside zip pocket helps out with some organization, but not much.

It sounds like I only gave negatives for the Speedy, which was not my intention. I love my Louis Vuitton Speedys, and I own 3 of them. The 25 cm, 30 cm, and 35 cm. The 35 cm is best for everyday use and will hold more essentials. It will never change being one of the most classic handbags ever. I personally love it, but felt the need to share the downsides.

Louis Vuitton Neverfull

The bag you want to compare the Speedy to is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull, which has become another House staple. How can you not love this bag? It is lightweight, roomy, and reversible. The strongest point of this bag is its ease of use. The side laces allow you to tighten the bag into a more compact shape or let them out to a full tote size. Either way, the volume of the inside of the bag is vast. And of course, it is reversible, which is a nice touch and not found on many (if any) designer handbags.

It is not that the Speedy is not lightweight, but the large and long shoulder straps of the Neverfull will allow you to put this bag over your shoulder with ease and allocate the weight better for carrying. The shoulder straps are long and slender, without any additional chains or weight, which will not have it dig into your body.

The look of the bag is not nearly as iconic as the Speedy, but it is a great, simple, everyday tote. And an everyday tote is an essential for any collection. However, you did just tell me you bought a YSL Muse. The Muse offers a similar shape to the Speedy but looks more like the Neverfull if you have the side pulls cinched. I am having a hard time leaning either way for you. I would suggest deciding if you want a bag that can be worn over your shoulder comfortably or not and which looks strikes you the most. Hope this helps!

Another Louis Vuitton lawsuit imminent

01:00, 1/1/1970 .. 0 comments .. Link

 

 

We remember the recent coverage of Louis Vuitton’s lawsuit against the Korean carmaker Hyundai in March. This time around,replica bags, I am afraid that LV’s next legal slapping may just involve the lovely Mythbusters crew and multiple layers of explosive, tightly-wound pork skin.

 

Since I am currently abroad in Germany, I did not get to watch the latest installment of my favorite Discovery Channel show Mythbusters until earlier today. The myth at hand sought to prove whether or not ancient armies could have used animal hides to build their canons. The first all-leather build failed miserably,replica Designer, so in best MB tradition, Kari, Grant and Tory went on to build a pig-skin-super-canon with several reinforced layers to withstand the blast of the black powder.

As a silly play on designer leather handbags, Kari adorned the whole barrel of the leather canon with their own flavor of ‘MB’ monogram. It just so happened to closely resemble the Louis Vuitton monogram,Miu Miu handbags, which had been subject of several lawsuits in the past. As we know, LV is very protective of their brand and their logos – I for one would just hate to see my favorite geek crew get in trouble over this awesomely busted myth.

Time will tell.

Anna Kournikova does Louis Vuitton

On with our Celebs week! I have decided to feature an athletic woman. And who better to do so with than the ever beautiful Anna Kournikova. Tell all your boys out there peering over your shoulder to quit drooling: she is not a model,replica miu miu bags, she’s a tennis player (although I swear men forget that). I must admit that I really do think she is beautiful and she wears this Louis Vuitton Multicolor Speedy 30 like it is her job. If I were the bag I would not want to leave her perfectly toned and tan arm either,replica bags, or the arm of her boy toy Enrique for that matter ;-)

louis vuitton keychainWelcome to Tuesdays with Twiggers,replica bags, a new weekly guest blogger dedicated solely to all things Louis Vuitton.

Someone once told me that the right accessory can make or break an entire outfit. Now the same can be said for your handbag! Feeling blah about that boring black Balenciaga? Or maybe that brown Bottega is getting boring? The solution has been right in front of us,replica miu miu bags, or should I say dangling right in front of us, for years. That’s right,replica Designer, that keychain you’ve been carrying can double as a bag charm. Even that fancy Hermes scarf tied around your neck can adorn your bag. Think bright colors to take away the boredom of that basic black or brown bag! I stumbled upon this little cutie a couple weeks ago and my bags have been thanking me ever since. Made by Louis Vuitton, this resin keychain can easily clip onto every bag out there. With so many bright colors it will match any outfit I wear! The small, gold Louis Vuitton plaque adds a little touch of elegance. And at only $225 it won’t break the bank.

Call 866-VUITTON or go to www.eluxury.com to purchase.

About Hermes and Louis Vuitton A trip to Cologne

01:00, 1/1/1970 .. 0 comments .. Link

 

We do apologize sincerely, but there is a very good reason things have been slow this week here at the purse blog. After 2 months of separation, the resident love birds Megs and Vladi have finally been reunited in the central European country of Germany. Yay! Weather’s nothing to be excited about, but emotions certainly are on the high side — things are just fabulous. Aside from all the time spent together, we also felt highly compelled to pursue our passion in fashion and do some shopping slash browsing through Europe’s major cities to check out the latest trends and goodies in the handbag market. First stop on the journey: Cologne, Germany.

Aside from its monstrous, intimidating and impressive, almost 760 year-old Koelner Dom (left) and the beautiful Rhein River,replica bags, there also appeared to be quite enticing shopping opportunities, potent enough to pull a whole lotta moolah out of foreign (and local) pockets. Getting off the ICE, we immediately found ourselves in the very center of town, right by the gorgeous Dom. After a quick detour into its chilly, ginormous nave,replica miu miu bags, we headed right for two of our favorite, exorbitantly pricey Parisian Haute Couture fashion shops: Hermes and Louis Vuitton. Despite having forgotten to shoot pictures of evidence, you can believe us that those two stores are placed within one store of each other (separated by a Chopard store), conveniently located right on the plaza facing the Dom. This venue does ensure exposure to heaps of international visitors, either dropping by to get presents for the loved ones at home, or willing to indulge themselves with high-class goodies.

Louis Vuitton Pochette AccessoiresWe first strolled into the LV store. What had already captured our attention from the store front was Louis Vuitton’s seemingly different Monogram Cerises line of bags. The colorful cherries exemplify a fresh and intriguing homage to Louis’ traditional signature monogram canvas — right in time for the fruity and fun spring. While the two of us don’t seem to agree on much at times, we both found the Louis Vuitton Sac Plat completely over-the-top — it seemed to lose LV’s sophistication in the cherry tree. However, Megs immediately fell in love with the $355 Louis Vuitton Pochette Accessoires for two reasons: first off, rather than taking away from the classic monogram that everyone seeks, the cherry only added a zing to make the pochette unique, and secondly the cherry came just in time to add a spring fling to an unwavering Louis Vuitton simple-style. Other than this new Monogram Cerises line, the store seemed a little small and showed a large focus on travel gear, like the Annette travel bag we previously featured. You think you are paying a lot for Louis bags in the US? Thanks to the lousy exchange rate, buying a bag in the US is a bargain, considering that you’d pay 25-35% more in Germany.

Hermes Kelly BagSaving the best for last, we then set foot into none other than the creme-de-la-creme Hermes store. Although my girl was dying to buy a bag, she couldn’t — for obvious reasons. What is remarkable about this store was the overall feeling of the sophisticated and high-class ambiance. Within the two floors, we did check out the vast variety of one-of-a-kind couture clothing and accessories, ranging from ashtrays to jewlery and beach towels. For a mere $450 you can get the towel wet, sandy, drained in sun screen and splattered with seagull droppings.

Just like Samantha on the infamous Hermes Birkin Bag search episode on Sex And The City, my girl immediately scoped out the hardware to see first hand the bag that even people who are rich and famous are only privy to purchase. To our disappointment, the Birkin Bag really is that rare and you really do have to be put on a waiting list if you’re approved to buy one. We still fell in love with the Hermes Kelly Bag, that went for a modest EUR 14,000 — gasp. Like Samantha, we felt empty without the Birkin Bag, but Hermes still managed to impress us and prove that they are in a league of their own.

On a side note, we did run into a local aution house, that happened to sell 100% authentically fake Gucci bags for a mere 15 Euros a pop, leaving us extremely tempted to buy all five of ‘em. Just kidding.

Overall we had much fun doing what we do best — tracking down the handbags that leave every shoulder unempty,Miu Miu handbags, every wallet a little lighter and every girl happy. Stay tuned for next week’s report from Paris, the fashion capitol of the World.
