Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Néonoé

Categories:Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITON

Louis Vuitton’s Néonoé is, without a doubt, a familiar one. For one, it’s an elevated twist of the ever-iconic Noé bag that has been around since 1932. Two, you might have actually seen the Néonoé out and about on the streets in the past couple of months, as it was released back in March as part of Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2017 collection.

With a Monogram Canvas body, the Néonoé comes in two mainstay colours (actually more like a trim) in Coquelicot and Noir that jazz up its otherwise mundane body. Then there are the seasonal hues, like Rose Poudre and Yellow that you’ll also find on the bag’s inner lining and strap that was released for SS17.

An interesting bag thanks to its adjustable strap that allows you to wear it in 3 different ways, simply adjust the length via its snap buttons. Move it to its longest and you can carry it across your body, or shorten it up for a completely different look in the form of a shoulder sling/tote. And because the strap is detachable, you can also choose from a wide array of shoulder straps Louis Vuitton sells separately for a totally different look.

Available in a single size, the 26 cm by 22 cm fits just about everything you need for a day out. An easy-to-reach revamped drawstring closure, which comes in the same colour as the bag’s strap and inner microfibre lining, completes the look. Priced at SGD1910, the bags might be currently sold out, but there’s no harm heading down to the boutiques to leave your name on the wait list as you can be sure this good-looking number will be restocked before you know it.

Louis Vuitton F/W17 Shiny Epi Pochette Métis

Categories:Louis Vuitton

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. But if you want to sell more of the same thing, you come up with more variations, of course. Yes, I’m talking about Louis Vuitton’s now iconic (and much-loved) Pochette Métis, first launched in 2013 in Monogram Canvas and now reinterpreted by Nicolas Ghesquiere for the F/W17 collection. Having since been launched in Monogram Reverse, Monogram Infrarouge and even Monogram Empreinteleather, this season you’ll find it in Shiny Epi, which is basically patent Epileather.

What’s also new is its size, with the Shiny Epi Pochette Métis coming in Mini. Measuring 20 cm by 14 cm by 6 cm, it’s definitely smaller than the MM, with the added hanging key holder chain a new feature. Available in Navy (matched with Monogram Reverse) and Orange (matched with Monogram Canvas), you can carry it via its top handle or wear it across the body by using the long chain sling.

But if Shiny Epi ain’t your thing, know that the Pochette Métis will come in Denim Epi (MM size), in florals printed on Epi leather in both sizes and even one that comes with brogue detailing on the front flap of the bag. In other words, as and when more pics (and prices) come in, there’ll be more updates soon enough so stay tuned.

LOUIS VUITTON CRUISE 2018 RUNWAY BAG COLLECTION

Louis-Vuitton-Cruise-2018-Runway-Bag-Collection

Straight out of the Miho Museum outside the city of Kyoto, Japan, Nicolas Ghesquiere’s genius floated through the air with his latest Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection. The collection is nothing but a riveting homage to Japanese culture with which Ghesquiere has fell in love with. Others described it as his open love letter to Japan and this is more than evident with what we’ve seen in the runway.

Featuring unique designs that are suffused and imbued with Japan’s trademarks such as the colorful dresses of kabukis and geishas, the tenacious lifestyle of the samurais, and the cutesy and quirky style of the Kawaii, the bag collection is indeed a pleasant surprise to many. It is in fact a collaboration between Nicolas Ghesquire and Kansai Yamamoto, a world-renowned Japanese designer.

You can see that there are Louis Vuitton’s classics and cult favorites gracing the collection. The Petite Malle, the Speedy and a new flap bag all in Monogram Canvas and Monogram reverse prints are unstoppable with their refined grace, injected with quirky and offbeat designs such as a kabuki taking a peek with her curious eyes, traditional prints of fishermen, and Samurai armors to name a few.

We are also seeing a new bucket bag, which is inspired by traditional Japanese lanterns and several small hot box bags in different sizes, prints, and finish. What could we say? This collection is entirely an amalgam of all things quirky and fun.

Cinderella proved that a pair of great shoes can change your life. And we couldn’t agree more, but we do prefer comfortable espadrilles over fancy slippers. Never missing out on the trends of the fashion world, Louis Vuitton is now introducing its Monogram Waterfall Espadrilles much to the delight of its patrons.

These Louis Vuitton Monogram Waterfall Espadrilles look undoubtedly fashionable and ultra chic. The famous Monogram Denim is now seen on a pair of espadrilles. The bright colors will lighten anyone’s mode up and will matches to any colorful accessories. The Monogram Denim is really where the gem is; the iconic Monogram logos are spread throughout the shoes and they’re very notable.

If you’ll take a closer look, you’ll notice that the espadrille sole is made up of a layer of natural braided rope and a rubber outsole for that added touch of comfort and ease so you’ll never have to worry about having tired feet.

As a definite summer style staple, these espadrilles are a fun and fabulous choice, which you can mix and match over your equally stunning summer outfits. Get outside and take on a leisurely walk as you slip on these comfy espadrilles, pair them over your white shirt and denim shorts, and with your sunglasses and you’ll look stylishly fabulous!

PETA IS NOW A LOUIS VUITTON SHAREHOLDER

Categories:Louis Vuitton

In a strategic move similar to one it's employed in the past with brands like Hermès and Prada, PETA just bought a stake in Louis Vuitton parent company LVMH in order to fight alleged animal rights abuses from the inside of the company. The announcement comes a month after the activist group released a disturbing video about the crocodile skin industry in Vietnam. The video, which graphically depicts the killing of crocodiles farmed for their skin, was accompanied by a statement from PETA declaring that the process used by one of the farms supplying Louis Vuitton is "inhumane."

"Reptiles lay motionless in thousands of tiny concrete cells, some shorter than their own bodies, for 15 months before finally being slaughtered," PETA claimed in a blog post on the subject. "At another farm, workers hacked into thrashing crocodiles' necks and rammed metal rods down their spines as blood poured from the wounds, and one crocodile is shown still moving after being skinned... Experts have found that crocodiles remain conscious for over an hour after their spinal cord has been severed and their blood vessels cut."

LVMH's director of environment, Sylvie Bernard, responded to PETA by claiming that Louis Vuitton has "no knowledge of a partner that would practice the method referred to... any cruel method involving the suffering of the animal is in clear contradiction with our principles and rules." The brand also alleged that its tannery Heng Long hasn't purchased any skins sourced in Vietnam since 2014.

Still, the animal rights group doesn't seem satisfied with LVMH's response, and by purchasing a stake in the luxury conglomerate, PETA is now able to be present at shareholder meetings. The idea is that PETA representatives will then be able to question the board in front of other shareholders in a way that they hope will influence brand policy from the inside. It's the same tactic the animal rights group has used to address ostrich skin usage at Prada and crocodile skin in Hermès' famous Birkin bags.

"From demonstrating on the street to speaking up in the boardroom, PETA will push LVMH to stop selling any bag, watchband or shoe made from a reptile's skin," the activist group stated.

Louis Vuitton: #MakeAPromise For UNICEF

Categories:Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: LOUIS VUITTON

When I was just a teeny-tiny boy (which wasn’t too long ago), I remember doing the pinky promise with my best friends and school mates over the things we hold so dear to our little hearts. The intertwining of the pinkies between two individuals signifies a promise made.

To make a promise today holds so much more. A promise we make today, is a promise we hold for life.

Since 2016, Louis Vuitton has made a promise to the world’s most vulnerable children. Children living in war-torn conditions; children exposed to diseases and natural disasters. It is in this promise that Louis Vuitton has committed, through UNICEF, to help bring life-saving humanitarian support to these children in need.

Why #MakeAPromise?

Louis Vuitton renews its promise to bring hope for a better life by launching its first #MakeAPromise day on 12 January 2017 to raise funds for children in need.

A specially designed silver Lockit necklace/bracelet has been created for this year’s #MakeAPromise. In full sterling silver, the necklace is about 20 cm long, and the bracelet length stands at 17.5 cm, but adjustable to between 15 cm and 16 cm. And for each sale of the necklace/bracelet, USD200 is donated to UNICEF, which will go toward protecting children from diseases and providing disaster relief.

So come and make a pinky promise with me today.
