On Wednesday we reported that Kanye West released his new line for Louis Vuitton. Three of the seven designs went on sale last week in England and the rest will not be out until late July, when they will be available worldwide. Louis Vuitton tells PEOPLE, “We did a lot of presales but they’re not sold out yet.”
Also take note he is NOT interning for the Gap. The rumor was in fact false.
Kanye West released his new Louis Vuitton shoe’s this past week and in most places, they sold out FAST. Kanye interned with Louis Vuitton and now it is rumored he is interning with Gap to learn more about the business as well. The line consists of three models; The Mr. Hudson, the Jasper and the Don. Prices Range From $700-$1140
Some trademark suits just seem silly, as if filed because someone in the office needed something to do that day. But we fully support the suit LVMH filed against P. Diddy’s Bad Boy Records for unauthorized use of its intellectual property by fractured girl group Danity Kane. The suit was just settled amicably out of court; financial terms were not disclosed, but Bad Boy agreed to remove images of Louis trademarks in Danity Kane’s self-titled debut album and two videos. If we were LVMH, we wouldn’t want our Louis Vuitton monogram mixing in with the pleather, metallic-silk-screened frocks, plastic jewelry, and other offensive items of apparel in Danity Kane’s closet, either. Bad Boy might have seen this coming — recently Sony BMG had to pay LVMH more than $150,000 after Britney Spears fashioned a pink Louis Vuitton–monogram dashboard for the car she drives through the sky in her “Do Somethin’ “ video. And if Britney‘s not getting away with it, you know Danity Kane stands no chance. Now if only we could take legal action against non-trademark-related wardrobe offenses.
Louis Vuitton’s new Graffiti & Rose collection, which features a range of accessories, is a homage to Stephen Sprouse, who collaborated with the house’s creative director Marc Jacobs eight years ago.
Bags, shoes, bangles, sunglasses, leggings, scarves and clothing – all contain the neon colored graffiti done by Stephen Sprouse.
To celebrate this month’s Stephen Sprouse book and exhibition, Marc Jacobs even got naked for Harper’s Bazaar and posed for fashion photographer Terry Richardson holding a bag from the Graffiti collection.
Sofia Coppola “created” a bag for Louis Vuitton. As a film director, I wouldn’t have troubles imagining how she managed to design something, like Sofia herself admits:
”I am able to ask people to make exactly as I would”.
But saying that the perfect bag doesn’t exist is an offense to the rest of the consumerism world who finds the perfect “something” at least once a month! Now you should all know that this perfect bag is called SC Louis Vuitton and it comes in gray suede, burgundy, blue calf leather and monogram canvas (appx $2,200).
So not only she’s truly creative and a fashion current consumer (to say that the perfect bag doesn’t exist, you really have to up to date with everything that has been done in the matter!), she also reinvented the wheel! Making an evening clutch with a mirror inside, now, there’s got to be only 40 % of the (serious) evening bags of the world that don’t have one!
The miracle clutches come in the same colors as the bags, plus a golden version. (appx $1,100). And you have to consider the brilliant cut of an Yves Saint Laurent shoe (originally made in the 70s and belonging to Sofia’s mother) redesigned (like we’d actually search and confront too see how much re-designed was applied to it!) and signed Louis Vuitton (appx $1,100)!Oh, isn’t this fashion in its truly pure form? Let’s see who’d be willing to pay $2,200 for a LV without LV allover it! (via iht.com, wwd)
