Illustrious Photographer Todd Selby of theselby.com in his East Village Studio. Mr. Selby collaborated with Louis Vuitton's "The Journey of a man's wardrobe" for Fall Winter 2010 2011. The Mon Monogram pieces in the background were a gift from the company. Photo credit: The New York Times
Even though we are dead smack in the heat of summer, I LVook forward to what LV has in store for us in the Fall, particularly the accesories. The Columbian Beret is one such example. Sporting stripes that evokes collegiate wear, the 100% wool would be perfect to ward off autumn's blustery wind. Gris, Cassis and Red are the colour choices so take your pick! LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!! $325 at www.louisvuitton.com.

I believe in Art and its free expression, but being an ardent devotee of the Blessed Mother, the Vuitton Madonna is kind of hard to take for me. Artist, Francesco De Molfetta, 31 takes an image of Our Lady of Lourdes, and interprets it with her veil being that of the iconic Monogram Canvas. He claims that he created the work "to denounce a society based on the cult of appearance through the use of a brand that represents the search for ephemeral happiness." The biennial is held at Isola del Gran Sasso in the central region of Abruzzo. I think he's just going for the shock factor...just my 2¢.
I just received the Men's Fall Winter 2010 2011 Catalogue today and would like to share with y'all my instant faves. Hopefully we can get the hi-res photos soon. Enjoy!

One thing that I never leave the house without is my trustee Simple Card Holder. I have my driver's license, debit and train card in it. Add to the fact that it was one of the first LV's that I purchased way back when, it holds a certain sentimental value. But, I am pleased to feature the Neo Card Case from the Macassar Collection. This one can hold three credit cards and a bit of cash or maybe some receipts. The black breaks up the Monograms quite beautifully. $250 at www.louisvuitton.com.
Capone fron New York is soooo in LVoe with Louis Vuitton that he would like to share with us some photos feauturing his large collection. Sigh, I wish that I have a cabinet full of Louis. Thanks for sending it in, C. LVoe it!!! I LVoe this shot!!!
The Monogram Macassar Line is expanding with an new interpretation of the Sac à dos, a backpack for the Vuitton Man. Slated to be released in mid-August, the $2800 shoulder bag has ample room for daily essentials. I LVoe the strap detail that is peeking out at the front.

Today was really hot but it was fun spending it with my good friend, Angel. Brunch at Arjay's was followed by a trip to Georgetown. Of course, despite the heat, we had to pass by Georgetown Cupcakes. After standing in line for about a half hour in 95 degree weather, we were able to grab our favourite treats. To top it all off, the owners, Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis were there, I guess to promote their show on TLC that premiered last July 16. Check it out at TLC.com. Sorry Katherine. I think Angel got nervous taking the photo.
