Irish broadcaster Angela Scanlon modelling two of Louis Vuitton’s new Epi Neverfull bags Originally designed in 2007 in Monogram and Damier, the new Neverfull bags are made of Epi leather: the first colour leather line of the Louis Vuitton House, created in 1985. The grained Epi line was transformed in 2012 to include the seven new vibrant shades – orange, purple, teal, navy blue, yellow, black and fuchsia – which the July launched Epi Neverfull comes in. Each rainbow hue retails at 1,160 online and in store.

Sporting wine-colored lips, dark brows and her signature cropped haircut, Williams looks particularly edgy in the Peter Lindbergh-lensed shots wearing clothing from the fall collection. It’s certainly a far cry from the young girl we met on “Dawson’s Creek.” Of course, this announcement isn’t too surprising — remember how great Williams looked in her show-stopping Louis Vuitton gown at the 2012 Oscars? This partnership is also particularly noteworthy, since it marks the star’s very first major fashion campaign. (Williams did star in the Band of Outsiders lookbook back in 2012, though.) You can catch her new Louis Vuitton ads in Marie Claire France on Aug. 2 or wait until they hit September and October fashion magazines Stateside. Do you think these shots prove that Williams has global style star potential?

The fashion house has tapped Irish broadcaster Angela Scanlon to front its just-released online campaign for the new Epi leather version of the Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag. The Neverfull, which originally debuted in 2007, now comes in a variety of brilliant shades, which means the flame-haired Scanlon was undoubtedly spoiled as she was asked to take the bags out for a spin around her top-choice East London haunts. Photo: Courtesy of Jamie Smith for Louis Vuitton “I’ve always been a huge Louis Vuitton fan,” Scanlon told us. “It’s just such an iconic brand, so when they asked me to showcase their Neverfull and LV pre-fall and Icons 2013 collections in my favorite spots in London, I rescheduled a couple of things! Seriously, what girl wouldn’t want to go gallivanting around town in her Louis Vuitton finery?” The style starwho jets back and forth between London and her native Dublinhit up local hangouts ranging from her pal’s flat and Canonbury Park to Les Trois Garcons antiques shop and even a laundromat. “I wanted to really showcase the places I actually hang out at, some of which are not very glam at all,” Scanlon explained. “I think that’s what I love about them! As for the laundrette, I go there to do what you generally do in a laundrette, but I always meet the most brilliant, random people. It’s a strangely productive place for me.” And really, is there anything a Louis Vuitton carryall doesn’t go with?

So it came as no surprise to see Sarah Jessica Parker carrying the latest W tote bag from Louis Vuitton during a recent outing in New York. The 48-year-old actress was spotted with the distinctive canary yellow accessory as she climbed from the rear of a car and made her way into an office building on Tuesday. Distinctive: Sarah Jessica Parker shows off her new W tote bag from Louis Vuitton on Tuesday With her hair tied back from her face and a pair of large sunglasses firmly in place, the usually good natured Sarah seemed preoccupied as she hurried past, one hand clutched tightly around the totes calfskin handles. And little wonder the luxury bag, which comes in a range of styles and colours, costs a sizeable $4400 (2907.17), no doubt a snip for Carrie Bradshaw, the designer obsessed columnist made famous by Sarah in HBO show Sex and the City. Made primarily from Veau cashmere leather, the bag which went on sale in July also includes palladium brass pieces, suede lining and various interior pockets.

The latest figures added to evidence of a rebound in the luxury sector as solid demand in Japan and the United States combined with recovery in Europe to offset China’s slowdown. Investors were concerned that Louis Vuitton’s growth was running out of steam after enjoying more than two decades of annual increases above 10 percent, driven by a rapid expansion around the globe. The stock in industry leader LVMH (LVMH.PA) rose as much as 5.7 percent – their biggest one-day gain in more than three years. LVMH Chief Executive Bernard Arnault, France’s richest man, said in January that Louis Vuitton’s slowdown was voluntary and the brand had put the brakes on opening new shops to preserve its exclusivity. At that time, Arnault publicly admitted for the first time that Louis Vuitton, LVMH’s biggest contributor to profits, was at risk of being too ubiquitous. To counter that perception, Arnault said the brand would move upscale and expand its leather bag offering while pruning its portfolio of LV-embossed canvas bags which make up two third of its business and generate gross margins of around 90 percent. LVMH Finance Director Jean-Jacques Guiony on Friday said Louis Vuitton’s margins rose in the first half, both at the operating and gross level, reversing a decline which analysts estimate started two or three years ago.

But as it turns out, she’s so consumed by consuming that she doesn’t even notice her high-roller investor husband Hal ( Alec Baldwin ) is cheating on her. “Don’t you have everything you want?” he asks, as if his philandering and shady business dealings shouldn’t matter so long as her answer is “yes.” Even after the money is gone (along with the husband), Chanel “CCs,” Louis Vuitton “LVs” and Hermes “H’s” are still so much a part of Jasmine’s identity that she can’t let them go. She’d rather wear the same Chanel boucle cardigan every day than have to shed that part of herself. And when she meets an eligible bachelor with political ambitions, clearly what he’s most interested in is that she looks the part. Although there are funny moments in the film, it is really a tragedy, most of all because Jasmine has never taken the chance to get to know herself beyond what’s on the surface.

In a somewhat aggressive move, LVMH has revealed its financial share in Hermes has grown from 22.6% to 23.1%, despite being issued a 8 million fine earlier this month . Now, that doesn’t sound like much of climb in everyday numbers, but in the world of stocks and shares? When you’ve already been warned off by official regulating bodies? It’s on a par with flipping the bird. Sparking rumours that family-run Hermes might be in more financial trouble than they’d care to articulate, there’s talk that new shares in the company are being leaked by those at the top, to help to keep the books afloat.
