Louis Vuitton is at it again. The brand is known for its striking ad campaigns, featuring everything from romantic train scenes to Muhammad Ali and his trusty Louis Vuitton Keepall, and for the classic Louis Vuitton Alma Bag, Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs has tapped models Karlie Kloss, Daria Strokous, Jac Jagaciak and Iris Strubegger to take the bags for a city stroll.

The best things about Louis Vuitton, in my view, are the sheer volume of handbag designs the company produces every season and the enormous leather goods history on which Vuitton has to draw. For the Louis Vuitton Monceau BB, new for Spring 2013, both of those uniquely Vuitton elements come in to play; the result is a beautiful, modern take on an old favorite.
There are few sure things in life (other than death and taxes, as the old trope goes), but a bevy of beautiful handbags at a Louis Vuitton show is absolutely on that short list. The company makes no bones about the importance of leather goods to its business, and creative director Marc Jacobs always makes sure to put the best of the best on display for editors, buyers and LV fans alike.
Everyone knows the iconic Louis Vuitton Speedy, and everyone also knows that Louis Vuitton updates this coveted classic with each season. For Louis Vuitton Spring 2013, Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs decided to add a geometric note with lots and lots of squares. Checks make a huge appearance, but my attention went to this updated version of the LV classic, which has been dubbed the Louis Vuitton Speedy Cube.
We know Jillian Michaels isn’t a stranger to weightlifting, so it’s no surprise that she’s handling her giant Louis Vuitton Mon Monogram Keepall like it’s a clutch. The Mon Monogram is a customized version of the aptly named Louis Vuitton Keepall – each bag is personalized with your initials and up to two colored stripes of your choosing. Jillian opted for orange with fuchsia lining.
Louis Vuitton is inarguably the biggest designer handbag brand in the world, but putting your hands on exactly the Vuitton bag you want can be maddeningly difficult, especially if that bag was a limited edition or came from a previous season. Louis Vuitton keeps such a tight control on its retail inventory that sometimes, all seems lost. But it’s not, especially when we have things like the Handbags by Louis Vuitton: Picks by Bella Bag sale at Rue La La to pull us through.
There are few brands from which I will happily buy monogrammed pieces, and Louis Vuitton is one of them. It’s not that I actively seek LV out, but somehow, it seems to seek me out – Louis Vuitton just does that to me. The brand has reinvented its monogram in so many ways that it never feels old to me, which is a pretty neat trick on the part of the brand’s designers.
For reasons that are perhaps obvious, I don’t follow men’s fashion as closely as I do women’s, but I love to look through the looks after the Louis Vuitton men’s show every season. Vuitton is a unique brand in that it has almost equal appeal to both genders; where most companies specialize, Vuitton achieves equal-opportunity luxury. When you take a look through these pictures of the bags, shoes and accessories from Louis Vuitton Fall 2013, it’s not difficult to see why no one can get enough LV.
Why are we posting about this? Well, it’s Wednesday, so I say, why not? Today in random but tasty news, we have L.A. Clipper Ronny Turiaf pictured at his birthday party with a custom Louis Vuitton Cake. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have a major sweet-tooth, and something about a cake being made to look like a bag just gives me happy feelings.
The iconic Louis Vuitton Speedy is easily recognizable and widely adored. As one of the most well-known handbags, the Speedy is reinterpreted season after season in a variety of renditions by Marc Jacobs and his accessories team. I always look forward to what they will come up with, and while some versions aren’t my taste, I always find at least a couple that are.
