Photo: zimbio Sofia Coppola just before she married fiance French musician Thomas Mars in Italy. I recognized instantly the luggage tag on her Cruise Collection 2012 Bag. It's one of those perforated Saumurs. LVoe it!!!
As I was reminiscing about the Irène, a question was posted with regards to the small bag in the Rihanna pictures. I didn't even noticed it but it in the last photo, the R&B artist was being shown the Monogram Vernis Mirada, one of the new releases this Fall Winter season. The website states: With soft rounded curves and vintage-inspired details, the Mirada is the epitome of retro chic. Feminine Monogram Vernis leather and a removable shoulder strap make it perfect for day or evening. Available in Rouge Fauviste and Amarante, it is priced at $2710.
Dear Francis, Just had to share these photos with You........as You were in our thoughts.......when we made our first ever LV purchases on Thursday, at the Queens Plaza store, Brisbane! Here am I unpacking my first choice of a Monogram Canvas Speedy 35 with shoulder strap............and my brother Riley who chose the 'Attitude' Sunnies in Silver! Riley is loving himself sick! Hope you're proud of us!! Tilly Rockhampton Queensland Australia Awww...I'm really touched...thank you so much for thinking about me, Tilly & Riley and what fabulous purchases! Enjoy them in good health. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!! LV Brisbane
I'm stuck at home waiting for Hurricane Irene to hit and can't help thinking about the Irène from Pre-Fall '09. I know a lot of folks missed this limited run and wish it were a Core Collection piece. *Cheezy, I know, but I'm bored*.

Named after the King of the demi-gods of Hindu lore, Indra is Louis Vuitton's latest addition to it's masculine leather lines. Crafted out of calfskin and embossed to mimic elephant hide, this lush new "cuir" is tickling my fancy. Slated to be released this Fall 2011. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!

Oooohhhh...Japanese Chins and LV...perfect combo! I would like to introduce to y'all, Sake and Sushi, Chins from Montreal, Canada. Their mom, Leanne, has graciously captured the lil' pooches in her vintage Louis Vuitton. In case you're wondering Sake is the black and white one and Sushi the blonde. Thanks for the photos, L. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!
I know this is strictly a Men's Collection but the Damier Infini in Fusion (Red) is to die for and I'm sure there are some confident ladies out there who can pull it off. Featured here are the Porte-Documents Voyage (priced at $2420) and the James wallet (priced at $600). The embossed calf leather is the latest addition from the men's runway; I wonder if its successful enough to become a permanent collection.

Since 1997 Marc Jacobs has been the creative designer for Louis Vuitton and has brought life to the aging company. Now with the rumor mills churning about his "most likely" heading up the Dior House, are we ready to let him go?

Wow, Sara just brought my attention to this fabulous women's shoe. Crafted out of python skin that is finished in metallic gold, it is then painstakingly hand-painted to create an iridescent effect. I just LVoe, the Vuitton flower detail. The vamp is also hand stitched which makes this piece of footwear a bit pricey for around $US1600. Sara, I guess you're in big trouble now.

SOOOO CUTE...The Fascination Lockit BB with Frame is simply adorable! Crafted out of shiny patent leather and embroidered a la matte bouclette just like its bigger cousins, little Noir number would be perfect as an occasional bag for that special evening. But if it were me, I would tote this baby to the gym to house my nano and membership card. HA! Priced at $2700 :0) LVoe it!!!

Speaking (or blogging about sweet SAs)...I picked up my luggage tag today that I had embossed with my initials. My SA had to recruit one of her colleagues to perform the deed since she says she does not trust herself to do it. Before they actually embossed it onto my tag, they practiced first on a piece of vache and texted a photo of it to me to inquire if the spacing was to my liking. I was so surprised to see the swatch that I asked if they could give that to me also. She texted me a laugh followed by a 'yes'. I became more excited about that instead of my actual luggage tag. It's the first time that I have seen and touched vache "in the raw" and it smells heavenly. Imagine taking a whiff of freshly churned cream with a hint of vanilla. That's how special LV leather is!!! Thanks M & S for the experience that that small piece of leather gave this ol' Louis Vuitton Lover. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!
My darling Sales Associate informed me today that the Epi Collection will have 12-15 NEW colours that are slated to be released at the same time for January 2012. Oy, that's a myriad of colours to choose from! I wonder what they will be. Have you guys heard anything?
The Lockit Pulsion - what can I say? Crafted out of shearling from handle to base, this fuzzy bag can truly only work for the cold weather months. Unless you're the type that sleeps with your LV's, this is quite an expensive stuffed toy at $3450 a pop! The colour of the one photographed is the Gris but it also comes in Caramel and Marine.
The Louis Vuitton Ostriches have finally arrived in my local store. This time, not a whole bird is featured unlike that of New York but it appears that the bags have grown Struthio legs. I should have taken a photo of the whole window so you could've seen the full effect of the pair that were about to drop from the ceiling. It's pretty funny. The "Eggs" window looks like a huge incubator where Vuitton SLG's are hatching before your eyes. It's really a clever way of showcasing the collections and definitely would stop you in your tracks to take a second LVook!
Every man needs a stylish Key Fob so the Vuitton interpretation with two of its masculine pattern, Ebène and Graphite is a most welcome addition to the Men's Accessories. Slated to be released either August or September, these would be perfect stocking stuffers for the Holidays. LVoe it!!!
