His friend and fellow Brothers For Life gang member Yehya Amoud was shot dead in the same attack. Adam Achrafi, 18, and Naef Chaouk, 19, were also arrested over the alleged Louis Vuitton heist. All three were charged with aggravated break, enter and steal and were refused bail when they appeared in Central Local Court on Thursday afternoon. Detective Inspector Simon Jones of The Rocks local command praised the work of the police. ”We’re excited the work that they did last night has resulted in, as I said, a quick arrest but ultimately putting three accused persons before the court fairly promptly,” he said. Sydney’s high-end retailers have been the target of a spate of glam raids over the past year. Kaftan queen Camilla Franks lost more than 700 garments in two raids on her Bondi store and once at Paddington last year. They were worth more than $240,000. Italian fashion label Prada was struck last October when thieves reversed a car into its Castlereagh Street premises in the middle of the night and filled the boot with 15 racks of accessories.

Louis Vuitton Raised Most Non-Leather Handbag Prices, HSBC Says

Reese Witherspooon Steps Out With the Louis Vuitton W August 2, 2013 0 If you’re wondering what this Fall’s It bag is going to be, then here’s your answer, courtesy of Louis Vuitton and Reese Witherspoon . The star who has made a name for herself carrying the hottest bags on the market (remember how she was one of the first to carry the Fendi 2jours tote ?) was spotted yesterday out in LA with the Louis Vuitton W, which she styled with a light-blue sweater, skinny jeans, and leopard-print Louboutins. If the leather and coated canvas carryall looks familiar to you, then that’s because you’ve already seen it starring alongside Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton’s stunning Fall 2013 campaign , where it made its official debut with Vuitton’s other headline Fall bag, the Capucine. If its sleek silhouette, classic monogram detailing, and chic celebrity sighting are any indication, then it’s clear this will be the hottest accessory of the Fall.

A striking example is their hot, new Louis Vuitton handbag. In general they admirably keep leather and their famous monogram from looking dull or similar to anything the Louis Vuitton house has created before. Most certainly, such a highly-anticipated Louis Vuitton campaign always comes along with a juicy bombshell celebrity. The French design house has a history of very fine taste in celebrities, such as Uma Thurman who launching the famous Louis Vuitton Manhattan handbag; Scarlett Johansson and even the timeless Kate Moss. Notably, most recently their advertising campaigns have been lighter. ## Even better this time, they snatched up Academy Award nominee Michelle William, famous for her role in the movie My Week with Marilyn. The innocent girl with a dash of sexiness matches perfectly the pattern of celebrities the Louis Vuitton design house has chosen over the years. Williams innocent and flawless beauty was photographed by Peter Lindbergh, with mysterious, dark romantic make-up that is hard for blondes to get away with, but under the hands of the one and only Stephane Marais with her solid reputation as an extraordinary fashion make-up artist they managed to rock the look. Marais says “makeup is part of custom. It is an expression of moods and values,” in an interview with Vogue.

Vuitton raised prices by at least 10 percent in the U.K. and U.S., and by 5 percent to 10 percent in Asian markets including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore, the analyst wrote. The euros strength against some currencies may lead LVMH to charge more, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bernard Arnault said Jan. 31. Vuittons price increase in Japan, the biggest ever by the brand in the country, was taken to offset the impact of the yens slide on sales, the company said Feb. 20. In addition to protecting margins, the price increases must be seen, in our view, as a means to accelerate LVs repositioning towards more leather, Belge wrote.
