Louis Vuiton Pallas

I was thinking about brands that are popular but that I don’t cover that much anymore, and Louis Vuitton came to mind. Like many others, my first high-end designer bag was from the brand, and it was the tiny Wapity Clutch (which I still own and still adore).

While we all sit under a blizzard in New York, a lot has been happening in Paris. Couture shows just started, and immediately before them, the world’s biggest menswear brands opened the Fall 2015 show season. One of the last shows on the schedule was Louis Vuitton, and under the guidance of men’s creative director Kim Jones, the brand’s iconic monogram canvas has made a comeback.

Nicolas Ghesquiere wasted no time in putting his own stamp on the iconic codes of Louis Vuitton, and the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2015 collection is the latest continuation in his reimagining of the monograms and materials that we all know and (maybe) love.

Louis-Vuitton-Spring-2015-Ad-Campaign-11

Nicolas Ghesquiere is onto his second major season of agenda-setting at the new Louis Vuitton, and his dreamy-mod vision of 70s nostalgia has returned for the Louis Vuitton Spring 2015 ad campaign. Ghesquiere started revealing the photos, lensed by Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber and Juergen Teller (just like last season) on his personal Instagram account at the end of last year, and now the brand itself has added a few more official ads to the lineup.

Louis Vuitton Taurillon Backpack

Historically, “discreet” hasn’t often been a word used to describe Louis Vuitton bags, but times are a-changing at the French leather goods powerhouse. Several seasons before Nicolas Ghesquiere was brought in to helm the women’s side of the company, Kim Jones was hired to oversee the men’s side of things; his contribution to the brand’s legacy has already been tremendous.

Rihanna Louis Vuitton x Frank Gehry Twisted Box Monogram Bag

Here’s Rihanna, heading to dinner at Nobu in Tribeca on a particularly blustery night in NYC. She’s carrying the Louis Vuitton x Frank Gehry Twisted Box Monogram Bag, which retails for $4,400 in select Vuitton stores as part of the brand’s “Celebrating Monogram” collaboration with six fashion and design luminaries.

Rachel Zoe Gucci Nouveau Fringe Suede Bag

It’s that time of year again when LA celebrities grab their kids (or kids they’ve borrowed especially for the occasion), the paparazzi grab their cameras and everyone heads on down to Mr. Bones’ Pumpkin Patch. Here’s Rachel Zoe, pumpkin-picking with her sons Skyler and Kaius and her husband Rodger Berman.

Louis Vuitton Spring 2015 Handbags 6

There’s no doubt about it: Nicolas Ghesquiere knows exactly what he’s up to at Louis Vuitton. The designer sent his second major collection for the brand down his Paris runway yesterday morning, and the results felt like a strong continuation on what he’s built so far.

Louis Vuitton Icon and Iconoclasts Collection

The Louis Vuitton Icon and Iconoclasts Collection turned a lot of heads when it was announced, mostly because of the perennially bold-faced names from the worlds of fashion and design that had signed on to participate. Louis Vuitton tasked fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo, as well as architect Frank Gehry, photographer Cindy Sherman and industrial designer Mark Newson with creating artful fashion pieces using the brand’s signature monogram print, and now we know what each of them did with the challenge.

Nicky Hilton Louis Vuitton Trompe L'oeil Trocadero Bag

Here’s Nicky Hilton, headed to lunch at The Smile in downtown Manhattan, carrying a Louis Vuitton Trompe L’oeil Trocadero Bag, which, according to our research, seems to date all the way back to Fall 2006. I’d like to think she pulled this one out of the archives just for us.
