Louis Vuitton Launching New Damier Infini Line

I haven’t been this excited about a new men’s Vuitton line since Damier Graphite was unveiled.

Louis Vuitton Utah Tattoo Néo Greenwich

While I was crushed to learn that some of my favorite Louis Vuitton men’s spring runway bags featuring the tattoo work of artist Scott Campbell didn’t make it to retail, at least the one that did make the cut is gorgeous! Too bad it’s completely out of my price range! Cast entirely in the supple … Continue reading Louis Vuitton Utah Tattoo Néo Greenwich

Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring 2011 Runway Bags

In one word: utilitarian. With a head trip theme underlying the spring men’s collection, Louis Vuitton’s men’s studio director Paul Helbers, under the auspices of Marc Jacobs, channeled what he described as “a rhapsody of three virtual scenarios for a digital bohemian, a man who travels the world from behind his computer screen.” That translated … Continue reading Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring 2011 Runway Bags

Emilio Pucci Marquise Bag

Peter Dundas is a seriously underappreciated talent. This former designer at Roberto Cavalli and Ungaro–now creative director of Emilio Pucci–has never let his passion for cutting-edge design be marred by trends or corporate restraint. The same can be said for the Marquise bag, his first bag (not to mention the only one launched with a … Continue reading Emilio Pucci Marquise Bag
