Daughter’s Got a Brand New Bag, and It’s Louis Vuitton
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.

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!

That way, if you are missing an accessory or packing one piece that goes with absolutely nothing else, you can fix it before you start putting things in your bag. Do use your jacket as a garment bag! Since you almost always pack some kind of outerwear, whether it’s a trench, a leather jacket, or a blazer, you can use it to protect your most delicate items. Put the piece or pieces most likely to snag inside the jacket and close it up. Now, nothing can grab! Do put your shoes in a V formation, with the heels against the side structure of the bag so they can’t be snapped. Flats go on the inside since they can bear a little more weight and pressure. Put each shoe in an individual shoe bag to not only protect, but to also provide padding that keeps them from sliding around. For extra support and space-saving, roll belts into the toes of your flats or boots.
Why Louis Vuitton’s Latest Muse Angela Scanlon Likes to Hang Out at Laundromats
It’s just such an iconic brand, so when I was asked to showcase their Neverfull and LV pre-autumn/winter 2013-14 and Icons 2013 collection in my favourite spots in London, I rescheduled a couple of things! Seriously, what girl wouldn’t want to go gallivanting around town in their Louis Vuitton finery?” Scanlon chose a diverse array of destinations for the shoot – including a laundrette; her favourite restaurant, Les Trois Garcons; Columbia Road Flower Market; and Canonbury Park. The 28-year-old – who is represented by Liz Matthews, the same agency that this site catapulted Alexa Chung to international fame – first began her relationship with Vuitton over “coffee and cake”. “I adore what the brand stands for,” she said. “It’s respectful of the heritage, but is always moving forward and innovating. I think Marc Jacobs has modernised the brand and every season there are so many pieces that I see myself wearing and, let’s face it, wearability is sometimes a dirty word in fashion but Louis Vuitton makes it appealing and special and unforgettable.” Her personal style muses include Annie Hall, Lou Doillon and Alison Mosshart – an eclectic mix, who have all influenced her “schizophrenic” way of dressing. Topshop and J Crew are next on her dream list of labels to work with. “My style is casual, mismatched and always with something inappropriate thrown in,” she said.

Delphine Arnault on June 25 was named executive vice president of Vuitton, with responsibility for overseeing its product lines. Shell be the No. 2 executive in a unit that accounts for half of LVMHs pretax earnings, evidence that shes being groomed for a top jobperhaps the top jobat the Paris-based luxury giant. While Vuitton is still the worlds most valuable luxury brand, its losing ground to competitors such as Gucci and Prada ( 1913:HK ) as demand wanes for the iconic LV monogrammed handbag. A report last month by consultancy Millward Brown Optimor estimated that Vuittons brand value declined 12 percent over the past year. LVMH in April reported its weakest fashion and leather goods revenues in more than three years as sales flattened in China. As consumers make room for those luxuries that make them feel better by trading down on other items, it is the middle-of-the-road brands, such as Vuitton, that have suffered, Millward Brown Optimor said. Delphine Arnaults task will be to give the brand a more exclusive aura, deemphasizing its ubiquitous monogrammed canvas bags and introducing costlier leather bags. In the short term, that could depress sales growth, as LVMH also has said it plans to open fewer Vuitton boutiques.
