I asked Restricter if I could post her spy pics from Louis Vuitton New York's Fall Winter 2009 2010 Event and she gladly agreed. So here they are folks, enjoy!
I got to visit the boutique today and lo and behold my sales associate produced the LVook book for me to see with releases for the rest of the year. First off, the East-West Mahina After the success of the line, it is no wonder that LV would be releasing a horizontal counterpart to its predecessor. Coming in two colors, chocolat and acajou (cognac), these babies will cost you a little over 2K. (PM $2260 7.5" x 15.4" x 7.1" and GM $2580 10.8" x 17.7" x 7.9") Next we have a new installment to the Multicolore collection called Courtney. Comprising of a city bag sized MM ($2620 15.3" x 10.6 x 9") and GM ($2950 16.7" x 11" x10") as well as a clutch (missed the price on that one 10.9" x 2.7" x 6.6"), this multi-riveted Multicolore is not for the faint of heart. Last but not the least is my personal favourite of all that I saw tonite. An extremely special Louis Vuitton GM Shopper. A by-deposit-only piece, the Monogram Canvas is trimmed in python with alligator handles. It's truly a special bag for the bargain price of $14900. (*Yikes*) There were still a lot more so I would suggest contacting your local store to get a chance to view what's in store for all Louis Vuitton LoVers out there! LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!

co·quette Pronunciation: \kō-'ket\ : a woman who endeavors without sincere affection to gain the attention and admiration of men. Truly, this pochette embodies that definition! A Fall Winter 2009-2010 Runway Piece, the oversized clutch lives up to its name with its glamourous stitching, rivets and that magnificent metallic pull that is a characteristic feature of this collection. Be ready to fork out mid-2K's if you are desirous to include this in your accoutrements. Thanks, H for the pics! LVoe it!!!

Presenting to you the first LVeak of the Fall Winter 2009-2010 Ad Campaign featuring the ethereal, air-brushed Madonna with the Pre-Fall Monogram Canvas Irene. The color palette reminds me of the Scarlett Johansson pics from two years ago (click here ). Obviously, the ad was inspired by Horst's famous photo of Coco Chanel, a sharp contrast from the bar scene of Madonna's previous campaign. Click here to see them. LV Ad photographed by Steven Meisel
There was too much testosterone yesterday with Louis Vuitton's Men Spring Summer 2010 Collection that I decided to feature these ultra-feminine accesories, the bandeaus. Coming out soon to match the Fall Collection, my favourite of the three is called the Eugenia. Pictured here in Rubis, the Eugenia is a reinterpretation of the monogram flowers that reminds me of cotton prints from the 70's. Up next is the Trunk & Bags Bandeau sporting the hardsided pieces of the House. This elegant, classic pattern is sure to win the tradionalist in all of us. Lastly, we have the familiar Stephen Sprouse Leopard Bandeau. The artist's design has become a staple of Louis Vuitton and this will surely delight those who are on a budget and would like to own something of Sprouse. Hopefully the current price of $150 (it just increased from $145) will hold for the next few months until these delightful silk ribbons will be released. Special thanks to Dinh for the photos! LVoe it!!!
