Nite Out

From Melbourne with LVoe

Featured today is Nix and his good friend Jennifer as they pose with their Roxbury Drive and Bedford, two of my favorites from the Vernis collection. They look fabulous, don't they?! But aside from their LV's, I was astounded by the Ferrero Rocher installation in the background, this being my favorite chocolate. Thanks for sharing, Nix. LVoe it!!!

New Vernis Colors for Spring Summer 2009

I decided to use the painting "Tampuhan" by the renowned Philippine painter, Juan Luna to showcase Vuitton's new color palette for the Vernis Line. Painted in 1895, the scene depicts a lovers' quarrel set in a typical Philippine colonial house. It is a snapshot of life in old world Manila. As you can see, the new colors of the Vernis compliments this painting beautifully. From the top we have Rose Pop, Vert Tonic, Bleu Galactic and then Orange Sunset. Vernis Colors:

Huh???!!! I wonder if LV US will do the same...

First LVook: Denim Pochette Brodée

Even though it's practically freezing where I am, I can't help but feel the warmth and excitement that the Spring Summer 2009 Collection brings. This new interpretation of the Vuitton Denim is quite interesting. The monogram and flowers are teased out of the fabric but this time with colors that vie for Nature's palette. I can't wait to see this because I LVoe it!!! More from the collection to come in the following days. Photo:

Paparazzi puuuuhhh-leeezzz!!!

You can take pics now inside the 5th Avenue store!!!!

For the longest time, LV never allowed outright photography within their stores but I just received an e-mail from a little P birdee that this is something that they allow nowadays within the New York Flagship. I cannot vouch for the other stores but just a tidbit info for all you Holidays shoppers in the Big Apple. Here are photos from eastriver39 of flickr of the Maison in all its Holiday Murakami splendor. Thanks, P for giving me another reason to take a trip to NY!

Speaking of Exhibits: Rock on Mars at the Deitch Project

Ushering 2009 with a bang, the Deitch Project is hosting a retrospective of Stephen Sprouse's work called Rock on Mars. It promises to transform its 18 Wooster Street Gallery into a 'realization of the artist's rock and roll futuristic vision.' As you all know, our highly esteemed Marc Jacobs is a huge fan of Sprouse's and in conjunction with the project, he has created a new collection for Vuitton resurrecting the Sprouse Graffiti from 2001 but this time in glow-in-the-dark luminescent form. Collection hits stores in January 9, 2009 to coincide with the exhibit's opening. Click the link above for more info.

Sunday at the National Gallery

Jeff and I have been wanting to see the exhibit, Pompeii and the Roman Villa, at the National Gallery of Art. What better way to enjoy a lazy Sunday than to spend it with antiquities. For the Gallery's site, click here or for the exhibit's downloadable brochure, click here. Me and Mon Monogram in front of the Capitol

Louis Vuitton iPod Trunk

Karl Lagerfeld really LVoes his iPods! Aside from the Fendi Juke Box that he designed to supposedly hold his 40 iPod collection (it only holds 12), he has now commissioned the Vuitton atelier to construct a Taiga trunk that will hold 20 iPods, a set of JBL iPod speakers, subwoofer, and iPod docks. I guess I won't be seeing this in store unless I happen to be there when Tito Karl picks up his special order.

Adieu, Whisper!!!

After several harrowing trips to LV, I had to say goodbye to my Whisper GM. The handle glaze was unraveling and even with replacements, the same problem happened within a day! The Store Manager decided that it was a material defect and she asked me to return it. So, I'm really sad since it was the bag that was with me and Jeff in Paris, a silent witness to all we experienced in that trip.

Enter the Dream

Visit I LVoe, LVoe the soundtrack!!!

Capping off Men's Nite

First LVook: Boyz, this is for us!!!

Spring Summer 2009 Men's Collection Taken from the Japanese website these Spring Summer 2009 pieces are the first to come out from the men's collection. I think the release is meant to coincide with the opening of the all men's line Omotesando Store on November 23. They appear to me as variations of the ever popular Keepall and truly functional Reporter. I am not sure if these would only be available in Japan or will they be released to the world market. We'll see. There's a buzz that New York City will also have an exclusive Men's Vuitton Store in the not so distant future. Visit

$50K Housewarming Present

Zac Efron, High Musical's dreamy heartthrob has reportedly purchased his 'long-time' girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens, an antique $50,000 Vuitton trunk as a housewarming present for her $2.5 million house. Phew, a lot of figures there! Vanessa, who has been photographed with several LV's will surely LVoe it. I wonder what are the specifics of this expensive piece and if it was owned previously by somebody famous. It would be the perfect entry for my Tuesday Trunk Tidbitz! Here's hoping that pics would show up soon.
