LVook See: Louis Vuitton Fall Winter 2010 2011 Trunkshow

I know that it's been awhile since I have posted in my blog. I have been battling a bag funk lately but nothing beats a Louis Vuitton Trunk Show to keep the LVoe alive. Let's start off with the re-interpretation of the iconic Fleur de Jais Speedy with its glittering black sequins and flocage. I must admit that I was hoping for more ummppphhh, but the Speedy was just okay. I would have preferred if Marc used the same black leather on the tabs for the handles. Instead, the vache seems to be competing with the overall LVook but I LVoe the brass feet underneath that protects the embellishments. I did like the LVook though on the clutch version, the Manège. I'm all about clutches lately and this takes the cake. One worry though is the rubbing of one's hands at the bottom where sequins and flocking abound though the handly vache wristlet is a welcome alternative. Next we have the Monogram Volupté as represented by the Beauté (small) and Psyché (large). The coated jacquard has an interesting feel to it and upon close inspection I was amazed at how the Monograms were woven. Lastly, I played quite a bit with the multi-exotic Carrousel. The shape is delightful in petite form and is crafted with crocodeeel handles, autruche flap, lambskin lining and a clochette trimmed with mink fur. This will give any PETA supporter a heart attack...(and you thought Lady Gaga's dress was a bit much)! Of all of the pieces I saw tonight, the Carrousel has got to be my most favourite. Small enough for formal dining and quite colourful for a casual run of the town. Ooohhh, and it comes with its very own pillow stuffer to keep the shape! LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!
