Celebrate spring with Louis Vuitton and Sofia Coppola

As you might have noticed,
christian louboutin miami, Megs and I are absolutely spring-obsessed lately. Not only did the season just officially begin yesterday, but the weather in New York has been so sunny and perfect, so archetypically spring-like,
christian louboutin cork shoes, that it’s hard to think about anything else when the windows are open and a gentle breeze is teasing us every few minutes. To be inside working is positively unfair on days like the ones that we’ve been having, but such is life, I guess. We all have to make rent.

Right now, though, I’m considering skipping April’s payment, getting myself evicted and living in Central Park for the next two months. Naturally, I’d put that rent check toward the Louis Vuitton Sophia Coppola Bag PM in this amazing shade of turquoise. Who needs a roof over your head when you’ve got perfect weather and a perfect bag? I’m probably going to need my apartment back come June,
christian louboutin louis, though. Air conditioning is important to me.

I’ve always loved the Sofia Coppola bags because of their excellent leather and subtle design, but I had previously thought of them as more of an option for fall. (Or an option for people who carry black bags no matter the season. A lot of you live in New York.) I had completely overlooked this amazing color, right along with the gorgeous coral below. Either of these options is obviously perfect for spring and summer,
christian louboutin snakeskin pumps, and the convenient shoulder strap gives a note of casualness to a shape that can otherwise look a bit businesslike. I bet I’m not the only person doing handbag math right now. Buy through Louis Vuitton for $3950.

Judith Lieber Poodle Minaudiere

Good Lord knows that I hate poodles. I dispise them with every nucleus in my physical body, and beyond. Seeing their masters style them up like they are some sort of freakin’ art piece makes me want to spew. Perm and shaven butt, with poofed up afros that would make Snoop D-o-double-g himself turn Michael-pale of blushing,
christian louboutin size chart, I can’t take it.

Neither can I take this fug-farkin-fugly Judith Lieber Poodle Minaudiere. Good God,
christian louboutin claudia, it makes me want to flush my eyeballs with sulfuric acid,
mens christian louboutin shoes, the concentrated kind. Hot Dog? I say strip the posh dog‘s head and the tail, make it $4,
christian louboutin clutches,500 cheaper (hint: that would make it free) and I will give it some credit. Until then, it remains the fug bag of the week. I don’t know what it would take to top this off. Admire this hideous creation at Bergdorf Goodman.

Dolce & Gabbana wants to add some winter white to your wardrobe

For Dolce & Gabbana,
christian louboutin simple 70, the flap satchel has become something of a brand signature. We’ve all seen the Miss Sicily in everything from allover sequins to knitted wool, and now the Dolce & Gabbana Miss Rosa Satchel is here to bring some lightness to your heavy winter wardrobe.

This bag is technically a Pre-Spring 2011 piece and therefore won’t arrive until around the first of the year,
christian louboutin south coast plaza, but as long as you live in the Northern Hemisphere,
christian louboutin black patent leather pumps, that’s still plenty of time to pair it with winter knits and and dark colors. Just don’t put it anywhere near your dark-wash skinny jeans unless you want the entire back side to turn blue. (Not that I know this from experience or anything… Of course not… Who would be silly enough to do such a thing?)

What makes this bag such a brilliant winter options is the abundance (but not over-abundance) of grey trim. Instead of using tonal stitching and finishing for the edges of the leather, the designer used a medium grey that makes the look clearly appropriate for cold weather. It also doesn’t hurt that the creamy, ivory tone of the leather will coordinate perfectly with all your favorite cold-weather neutrals,
christian louboutin prive, no matter what they might be. If you’re not much of a jeans-wearer (and I’m certainly not), then this just might be your perfect everyday bag for winter. So long as you’re willing to ignore the dangling coin closures, that is. Buy through Nordstrom for $1925.

Kim Kardashian Has a Major New Hermes Birkin on Her Arm

Kim Kardashian was recently mobbed by paps while leaving lunch at The Ivy in LA – as you can see,
christian louboutin london stockists, she’s clutching a relatively teensy 30cm Hermes Himalayan Crocodile Birkin, which is an extremely rare Hermes bag. Kim has a special talent for acquiring the rarest of Birkins, of course, and then cycling a few out of her wardrobe by selling them at auction at a later date). You can peruse her extensive collection of Birkins and other Kanye West-approved handbags in "The Many (Many) Bags of Kim Kardashian."

The name "Himalayan" actually refers to the color of the Birkin, not the region from which the crocodile comes from – which,
christian louboutin madame butterfly bootie, yes,
christian louboutin shop, is needlessly confusing because Himalayan crocs sound like they could be a real thing,
authentic christian louboutin shoes sale, but are not. Kim’s bag is actually made from the hide of a Niloticus croc,
christian louboutin bianca, just like a lot of other Hermes bags. What makes this bag rare (and notably more expensive than other croc Birkins) is that the tanning process necessary to achieve this finish is particularly delicate. Reportedly, Hermes has no plans to keep producing the Himalayan Croc Birkin, so maybe this bag will be the next to appear on the auction block?

Juicy Couture Pave and Resin Link Necklace

I hope all of you had a great holiday weekend. My life never has a dull moment, including this weekend. Part of my family got a cabin to spend a relaxing weekend camping; relaxing turned frightening when some insect bit my Aunt and she has an awful allergic reaction. Note to all of you fellow city folk: it takes an ambulance 25 minutes to make it to your cabin when you are in the country. But she ended up fine and we still had a blast! In the end, I will always be a city girl. My roots may be country, but I am all about the big lights and hectic lifestyle. Along with this comes fashion, which I can’t live without.

This weekend I started to yearn for some new spring jewelry. The Juicy Couture Pave and Resin Link Necklace is simple and cute for the beautiful weather we are all yearning for (and some of us are already experiencing). Not overly ornate,
christian louboutin sneakers for sale, this necklace has a heart, Yorkie, letter ‘J’,
christian louboutin matches, a strawberry,
christian louboutin suede pumps, and a few more charms hanging from pink resin links. Juicy Couture wants your attention to be drawn to the large pave rhinestone link. A simple ribbon woven through links is used to close the necklace. I am not sure if I love the idea of having to tie a ribbon to close the necklace, but it may be suiting for the purpose of the necklace. Simple and fun for frolicking around this spring,
christian louboutin platform pumps, this necklace can dress up jeans and a tank for any occasion. Buy this accessory via eLuxury for $125.

Betsey Johnson Bow Lock Flap Clutch

I find myself fence-sitting just a bit on this one. On the one hand, I think the Betsey Johnson Bow Lock Flap Clutch is a cute,
christian louboutin peep toe, punky,
blue christian louboutin pumps, affordable take on a Chanel classic. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, it’s got a cute lil’ bow,
christian louboutin fernando, and the piped edges make me think of retro 50′s upholstery, but in a surprisingly good way. On the other hand, I like Betsey Johnson just how she is ridiculous. And I’m not sure that this bag is ridiculous enough to bear her name. To be Betsey Johnson, doesn’t it need to be bedazzled or printed or studded or SOMETHING? It’s just got a demure little metal bow. Which I like, but doesn’t Betsey usually include like 9 of those? Either way, I would have liked it to be larger. It’s cute as a clutch,
christian louboutin boutique, but I think it could be rocked as a day bag as well. Buy through ShopBop for $235.

Louis Vuitton Musette discount christian louboutin pumps

Louis Vuitton Musette

We had reported about the new Louis Vuitton Monogram Charms a few months ago, when the collection first hit the Parisian stage. Finally,
discount christian louboutin pumps, the first bags start hitting the shelves and the Purse Blog is on it! Introducing the new Monogram, the new Louis Vuitton Musette comes along and pleases us with what appears to be a hit for Spring/Summer of ’06. I am not a big fan of the classis Monogram Canvas myself,
christian louboutin uk online, but I must say that I really dig this variety.

The handbag sports luxurious silk with a vibrant charm bracelet print and is covered with a modern vinyl coating for protection. Tanned calf leather trim adds a vintage-like touch. The Musette is finished with a top flap and signature padlock. This new Louis Vuitton handbag measures 12.8″ x 13.4″ x 3.5″ and goes for a steep $2,
second hand christian louboutin shoes,140.00 via eLuxury. Many of you certainly know, but there is some that may not. eLuxury is the only store that is allowed to sell authentic Louis Vuitton merchandise on the web. What does that mean for all 3 million other stores that claim real LV for cheap? Be very cautious. If in doubt, you can always hit the Seller Watch on our Purse Forum,
real christian louboutin shoes on sale, and our members can help you verify a seller’s items.

Your first look at Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton is famous for a lot of things at this point,
hot pink christian louboutin pumps, and among them is the brand’s highly profitable relationship with the modern art community. Vuitton has collaborated with world-famous artists like Stephen Sprouse and Takashi Murakami on collections that have been nothing short of wildly successful, and in the process, that brand has spurred a full-on collaborative art trend among accessories brands as wide-ranging as Christian Dior and Coach. It’s a match made in retail heaven.

We reported a few months ago that the next artist to gussy up Vuitton’s signature handbags (in addition to accessories, shoes and ready-to-wear) would be Japanese dot-enthusiast Yayoi Kusama,
christian louboutin platform shoes, and now,
christian louboutin pumps sale, via Women’s Wear Daily, we have your first glimpse at what those pieces will look like. As expected,
christian louboutin miss fast ankle boots, they’re covered in varying amounts of polka dots, and the collection is also reported to include wave prints. The first wave of pieces (ready-to-wear and small accessories) will debut in stores on July 10 with a major handbag and accessories push coming in October. Check out more pieces after the jump, including a couple of glimpses at the collection’s bags! (As we understand it, the embellished Louis Vuitton Ellipse that Kusama is holding above is not part of the collection; instead, it’s a bag that the artist hand-customized for Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs.)

Hermes Breeds own Crocs to Meet Bag Demand

The economy may be hurting world wide, but those that love Hermes are still buying. In fact, Hermes has resorted to breeding its own crocodiles on farms in Australia to meet the demand for its exotic bags. It is reported that Hermes makes around 3,000 crocodile bags every year and demand continues to grow while the crocodiles are not readily available to fill orders. It can take three to four crocodiles to make one Hermes bag,
christian louboutin black suede boots, so the move to use their own farms makes sense.

While other brands are hurting, Hermes continues to churn sales increases. Along with their own crocodile farms in Australia, Hermes is also hiring an additional 50-100 leather workers to join the staff of 2,000 in Paris. What does this mean for us? An easier change to purchase a Hermes crocodile bag,
christian louboutin kitten heels, if we have the funds to do so.

[Story via Reuters]

PARIS (Reuters) French luxury goods group Hermes has resorted to breeding its own crocodiles on farms in Australia to try to meet demand for its leather bags, its chief executive said on Monday.

Customers sometimes have to wait several years for certain exotic-skin bags, which can fetch over 35,000 euros ($48,410).

It can take three to four crocodiles to make one of our bags so we are now breeding our own crocodiles on our own farms, mainly in Australia, Patrick Thomas told the Reuters Global Luxury Summit in Paris.

Hermes already faces a major challenge producing 3,000 crocodile bags a year, Thomas said,
christian louboutin wholesale, adding: The world is not full of crocodiles, except the stock exchange!

Crocodile farming can be expensive, with the reptiles having to be kept apart in separate rooms to protect their skins from bites,
christian louboutin pump, but even so allowances have to be made for natural losses that can amount to around a third of bred crocodiles.

Hermes’ leather goods, which account for 40 percent of its business, have been the most robust in the current downturn with the group taking on 50-100 leather workers this year to add to the 2,000 craftsmen it already employs at French sites.

Thomas admits the group has been pushing other areas of the business, such as fashion and textiles, so it is not so reliant on leather bags, but says this area continues to be its fastest-growing product line.

We cannot face demand. We have massive over-demand. We are limited by our ability to train new craftsmen, he added.

Even Orlando Bloom Likes Traveling with a Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Newly single dad Orlando Bloom and his son Flynn were recently spotted arriving in Los Angeles together with an eye-popping carry-on (and diaper bag, perhaps): the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama Neverfull Tote. This limited edition bag was part of a larger collaboration between the brand and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama,
christian louboutin used shoes, who is famous for her work with polka dots and psychedelic themes. This unique collab bag is no longer available,
christian louboutin new declic, but regular Neverfulls can be had by the bucketload for $1,030 at Louis Vuitton.

The Neverfull is nominally a women’s bag, of course – in fact, we JUST saw Molly Sims at LAX with her own customized Louis Vuitton Neverfull. However, the simple structure and renowned durability of Vuitton’s coated canvas do make it ideal for a variety of purposes,
blue christian louboutin shoes, including high-end daddy diaper bag. It’s still unusual though to see a celeb dude traipse through the airport with a Louis Vuitton piece that isn’t a duffel,
beige christian louboutin shoes, backpack or briefcase, though. We like your style, Orlando. If you enjoy the occasional LV-celeb lovefest,
