Long coat, long skirt

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Long-coat-long-skirt-sartorialist

I love this combo of long and long on The Sartorialist.  We’re so used to the oversized boxy silhouette that this looks different and sweet.

I also just noticed the Vuitton bag. I’ve recently fallen back in love with the classic Vuitton monogram used in the most simple context and you can’t beat a functional cross-body bag.

I’m not sure of the name of that exact bag, but the Pochette Metis is similar in size and shape (and you can buy a separate buff-coloured strap).

Books and Bowie at Louis Vuitton

Love books? Love Bowie? Love Vuitton? Here’s a treat for you then. Louis Vuitton has tapped David Bowie as its latest guest curator for its Curated Bookshelf. A secret gem in itself, the ‘Librarie’ can be found in the Louis Vuitton Maison in London’s New Bond Street, one of a number of Vuitton book stores that reflect different themes. Continue reading

Louis Vuitton Icons SS14 inspired by Charlotte Perriand

I do love the wearability of Louis Vuitton’s Icons collections. Devoid of the drama of the RTW collections, these pieces have a lasting usefuless that also transcends seasons. To emphasise that point, inspiration is taken from architect and designer Charlotte Perriand, both the woman herself (timeless black-and-white portraits of her in sportif mode dotted a showroom wall at the press day) and her modernist furniture and interiors.

Sofia Coppola goes goth for Louis Vuitton ad campaign

Sofia-Coppola-Louis-Vuitton-SS14

Here’s Sofia Coppola modelling for Marc Jacobs’ last ever Louis Vuitton campaign. The SS14 images have just broken and were shot by Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templer with Guido Palau and Pat McGrath on hair and make-up duty.

Marc Jacobs rallied a few of his favourite muses to model for the campaign, chiming with the prevailing trend of the last few seasons for an all-ages approach to fashion (Edie Campbell, Catherine Deneuve and Fan Bingbing also feature).

Sofia Coppola rarely lends her face to ad campaigns and I so admire her for this. Instead she works with designers who she is genuinely friends with, hence those Marc Jacobs fragrance campaigns we all love, and this slightly goth-y Vuitton one.

Flashback! Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton 1998

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It’s easy to forget that Marc Jacob’s early shows for Vuitton were much more pared back than what we see now. There are hardly any catwalk pictures online from that time but I absolutely love this video of the AW 1998 Louis Vuitton show (above), featuring Naomi Campbell, Kirsten Owen and a demure-looking Gisele.  Any of these looks would easily look current today.

Louis Vuitton’s Vivienne bag – logo or no logo?

Louis-Vuitton-Vivienne-Bag

So much for super-brands shying away from obvious logos, Louis Vuitton recently launched this Vivienne bag (£2,880) with a can’t-miss-it brass logo closure. I’ve taken a secret shine to it as the rest of the bag is neat, clean and understated. Buy it here.

Louis Vuitton meets Eine and a Shoreditch street art tour

Eine-Louis-Vuitton-scarf

When I posted about the Eine X Louis Vuitton scarf a couple of weeks ago, it was really hard to find out any info. That’s because it hadn’t been launched yet. I’d seen a snippet in Red magazine and that was pretty much all. In fact, the scarf launches today, exclusively at Selfridges, Oxford Street for one week, sold in the new ground floor Louis Vuitton accessories pop-up. (Not to be confused with the pop-up on the second floor.) Continue reading

Ben Eine X Louis Vuitton

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Ben eine louis Vuitton

The art-fashion convergence continues to broker commercial collaborations. I quite like this one between Louis Vuitton and street artist Ben Eine. Eine has reimagined his signature typographic letters for Vuitton, arranging his colourful words on a silk square scarf. Although given the choice between knotting it round my neck and framing it, I think I’d prefer the latter.

I actually can’t find any info on this collab I’m afraid. Instead I found this very sweet video of Eine talking about his work a few months ago…

UPDATE: Ok I found some info. A lot of info!

On Parisian ‘lovelocks’ and a clever interactive campaign from the British Heart Foundation

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I didn’t know this ’til recently but in Paris there’s a romantic tradition of lovers clamping padlocks scrawled with heartfelt messages on bridge railings to symbolise their love. Andrew Bunney cleverly took this idea to create his sterling silver ‘lovelock’ (available from Dover Street Market), while Louis Vuitton recently did something very similar with its Lockit line of fine jewellery
