Le Cabinet d’Ecriture Louis Vuitton à Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Louis Vuitton continues to explore the world of writing with a completely dedicated space to this art form in the newly renovated Saint-Germain-des-Prés boutique. Inaugurated in time for the Holidays, it is the perfect place to acquire that special gift.

 Comprising of paper, writing instruments, notebooks and cases, there's a myriad of items that would surely delight those who still prefer to use pen and ink in their missives. For me, this is truly the height of Vuitton luxury. LVoe it!!!

From Sara with LVoe

Dear Francis
This week I drove 10 hours south to admire the wonderful windows at Galeries Lafayette Paris (and get a nice Christmas pressie for myself!!).
So glad you mentioned the window display in your blog because the trip was worth it. The staff at LV in Paris are so wonderful too!!
Picked up the monogram voile stole and the matching inclusion ring. Do any of your readers have the Magnetic Sautour?? Lvoe it so much but at over 1000€ couldn't do it.

Oooohhh...I LVoe your, Alma Sara!  Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos and congrats on your LV haul.  Perfect for Christmas indeed!

From James with LVoe

Hi Francis,
I wanted to thank you not only for your wonderful website, but also for the inspiration to wear what I really want to. I live in the Deep South and have always been afraid to carry the bags I love so much in fear of others people opinions. I'm overcoming that fear now with your help. Thank you.

Below is a picture of what I wore to a recent Downtown rooftop party/fireworks display. Louis Vuitton shoes, Graffiti scarf and my new Epi Sellier Dragonne Pochette.

Thank you again,

Awww, thank you so much James.  You LVook fabulous but more importantly, your email truly touched me. It's you and all of my readers that I have to thank for.
   LVoe the 'H' as well!  

From Richard with LVoe

 Hi Francis,

Just want to say I have been reading your blog for a long time and I'm a fan.I finally decided to buy my very first LV bag when I stopped by LV Elements in Hong Kong coming from rig work. Your blog helped me a lot on deciding which one to get. I chose the Beaubourg Cabas in Monogram same as yours. I truly am happy with it! I find it very functional yet full of style! Thanks so much and more power, Hopefully this is just the first of many more to come!

Attached here is a picture of my bag and me with it when I attended the Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2012 last May.

More power to your blog and keep posting!

Warm Regards,

The Beaubourg is definitely one of my favourite LVs.  Thanks for sending your photo!  LVoe it!!!

From Sanjeev with LVoe


I wanted to share with you and your views some pictures of the soft leather red Infini keepall! This bag is amazing! It has all titanium fixtures, including the lock and key. The leather is really soft and well made. Everything thing on this bag works. Celebrities are going to scoop these up fast! :). Enjoy!

Here is a pic with me and the bag. Will you post everything on your blog, I would be honored!! Keep up the good work and giving us the latest that is LV!

WOW, Sanjeev, the colour is amazing.  Congratulations on such a special piece.
   LVoe it!!!

From Nuno with LVoe

Hello Francis,
How are you? I hope this message finds you well and having a great end to your week!
I don't know if you remember me, I am the illustrator who wrote to you a while ago.
I recently painted another illustration featuring Louis Vuitton and I know how much you LVOE this particular brand so I thought I would send it to you, I hope you like her!
Your blog is my fist stop when researching Louis Vuitton, I am sure you must recognise every item in the painting!

All the best,
Thanks, Nuno!  The illustration is amazing!  LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!

Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2013 Ad Campaign

Ahhhh...the ad campaigns are rolling in.  In collaboration with the French artist Daniel Buren, this interpretation of the Damier pattern in bright, bold yellow heralds the coming of spring when these ads will appear in the dead of winter.  Shot by the great Steven Meisel, Marc comments: "“I have always loved Daniel Buren’s work, and Les Deux Plateaux in the Palais Royal in Paris – a series of striped columns of three different heights – was the inspiration for the proportions of the clothes. I felt that the idea of pairing the girls as ‘twins’ heightened the message of repetition, and the repetition of pattern, which is key this season. Sometimes, they are perfectly matched twins, and other times they are mismatched, wearing different lengths – mini or midi, or midi and maxi – reflecting the different column heights.”
I can't wait for the windows that Buren will design this coming March which will grace boutiques everywhere.  LVoe it!!!!

A Little Night At LV

It was the first time in the five years that I have been blogging about Louis Vuitton that Jeff agreed to come with me to one of their events.  It was for a good cause and a LVoely evening to spend time with my sales associates as well.  I recently posted that I never get invited to these things but I guess the LV angels decided to grant me this wish.
   LVoe it!!!

From Bangkok with LVoe


Just returned to USA from winter vacation in Thailand. I checked out some of the lovely 2013 LV shoes and accessories while at the Siam Paragon Louis Vuitton location in Bangkok and I thought about you.

Plenty of lovely, simple & tasteful belts and wallets for men and gorgeous & modern wedge heel shoe boots for ladies (see attached photo).

I LVOE your two blogs and your Facebook page, keep up the great work!

Have a wonderful day!
Awww...that's very sweet of you to think about me while you were on vacation.  Thanks for sharing your photo, T.  LVoe it!!!
