Shown with lights and a plaque, it stands next to the modern travel bags that the store offers for sale. Customers are given the option to have their initials on the travel bags just like the initials brightly painted on the antique trunk. Celebrities such as Katie Winslet and Blake Lively are said to have taken part in this historic ritual. If customers dont wish to have their initials in big letters on the bag, they can choose to have them hot stamped onto their bags tag, free of charge. Every productsymbolizes the travel spirit, Dobkin said. You can see that even in the Lockit shoes, which are really popular. Theres a small lock that hangs off the zipper. Another part of the legacy is that everything in the store is handmade in artists workshops. The bags come from workshops in France, the leather from France and Spain, and the shoes from Italy. Even the holes in the belts are hand painted on the inside so that they match the top color, Mizrahi said.

And with its cavernous interior, versatile side drawstrings to adjust the shape of the bag, and impeccable construction (this is Louis Vuitton, after all), it might just be the perfect carryall. So you can imagine our excitement when we learned that for the first time, the iconic French brand released a collection of Neverfull totes in a dazzling array of colored Epi leather. Now, you may be asking what’s so hot about Epi leather, especially since it’s ribbed and structured rather than soft and supple. That raised texture means that it can withstand a beating (read: this bag knows how much it’s going to be used, and it’s ready to last a lifetime). But the best part about this new collection just may be the colors. You can now get a Neverfull in seven hues, from bright blue to deep red and brilliant orange.

These are the (now increasingly significant) interim collections that appear in the London stores in November and July respectively, just when regular customers need a fresh fashion fix. ‘Women want to add some excitement to their wardrobe all year round,’ says de Libran. ‘Something new and desirable.’ From the current pre-fall collection they might choose a swing-back orange mini-coat, a thigh-scraping skirt in lace-printed silk twill, or a double-breasted jacket with daringly extended shoulders and exaggerated sleeves: de Libran doesn’t pull punches when it comes to a strong silhouette. The inspiration for the collection, she says, was Francois Truffaut’s 1968 film The Bride Wore Black . ‘I didn’t watch the film again – it’s more important to work from memory than to be literal,’ she says. ‘So in the collection, there’s a veil of black over everything, and that softens the colour and creates a moodier feeling.’ Looks from Louis Vuitton’s 2013 pre-fall collection There’s also a proliferation of bows at collars, pompoms on shoes and jewel-encrusted heels. ‘Attention to detail is everything.
LVMH Lipstick Growing Bigger Than Bags as Vuitton Slows: Retail
That leaves LVMH better placed than rivals such as PPR SA to weather stagnating luxury demand. Sephora is a category killer, said Sanford Bernstein analyst Mario Ortelli. Investors concerned that sales of the Vuitton brand will keep fading are overcautious about LVMH. The owner of more than 60 brands — from Dom Perignon champagne to Bulgari jewelry — LVMH in April reported its weakest fashion and leather goods sales in more than three years. Its shares rose 0.1 percent to 136.8 euros at 2:25 p.m. in Paris, trimming this years drop to 1.4 percent, versus 19 percent advances for both PPR and Cie. Financiere Richemont SA. (CFR) Expanding Middle LVMHs Selective Retailing division, which includes Paris department store Le Bon Marche and duty-free shop operators DFS and Miami Cruiseline Services, accounted for 28 percent of 2012 sales. Ortelli recommends buying LVMH shares and holding PPR.
