Tuesdays with Twiggers: Louis Vuitton Updates Website for USA Customers

For months Louis Vuitton has been telling its American customers that the www.louisvuitton.com website would be undergoing extensive renovations. Early this week these renovations were revealed. Customers perusing the USA version of the website will now be able to see prices for every single item in the Louis Vuitton catalog. In addition, Louis Vuitton is now offering e-shopping through its website (previously the ONLY authorized online retailer was eLuxury – also owned by LVMH). Perhaps my favorite new feature is that when you purchase through the website you can also order heat stamping (your initials stamped into your bag or luggage tag in a variety of different fonts and colors). I am so thrilled with these new changes, and have spent the last day clicking away and updating my Christmas wishlist with prices and website links to help direct the PHH (purse hating husband)!

Visit www.louisvuitton.com and click on USA to see for yourself!

Ranging from the over sized Keepall used for travel, to the everyday Speedy, to the Mini Sac HL for small goods or your small tot, Louis Vuitton has invented a shape that will never go unnoticed. Choose the size that fits your need and the material that fits your wants.

louis vuitton xl handbagTuesdays with Twiggers: Just when I think I’m done they lure me back in! This time it is the gorgeous Louis Vuitton XL handbag that has done it. I am a huge fan of the trendy oversized, super-slouchy handbags that we always see the Olsen twins carrying around, and this new handbag fits this description perfectly. If you are a fan of oversized bags then feast your eyes on this beauty that is available in the XL size (29.5″ x 12.8″ x 5.9″) and the XXL size (32.2″ x 16.5″ x 11.4″). Or, as I like to call them, enormous and ginormous! The Louis Vuitton XL and XXL are made from soft, luxurious Mahina leather with microfiber lining. In addition a top clasp keeps things secure, and side buckles can adjust the size of the bag. I’m absolutely loving this bag, but alas the price has me contemplating buying the Chanel Baby Cabas first! What do you think? Thumbs up or thumbs down?

The Louis Vuitton Epi line pleases the crowd that shuns logo handbags while remaining easy to use and clean. If you own a piece from the LV Epi line you can vouch for the fact that these bags are easier to clean than a spill on your kitchen counter. The leather is durable and thick, which makes it harder to scratch and easier to wipe anything off. Grab a piece of paper towel, Kleenex, or a wet cloth and wipe off the spill. The bag will look like new and last for ages. The textured Epi leather is one of the favorite aspects, adding dimension, and the smooth leather trim finishes the bags off nicely. Below we found four fabulous Louis Vuitton Epi bags under $1000 at eLuxury’s exclusive Louis Vuitton boutique! Take your pick.

louis vuitton spring 2008 handbags

Tuesdays with Twiggers: Little by little my love for Louis Vuitton has been waning. I have been experiencing this irresistible urge for soft, smooshy leather in bold, bright colors. So it was with great anticipation that I eagerly waited for the pictures from the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008 RTW show to surface, and for Louis Vuitton to lure me back in. I wanted color? Well Marc must have been listening;although I’m thinking he didn’t fully understand what I meant. How do I begin to sum up the show? Maybe one word can do it: confused. The possible inspiration: Spongebob? (See picture below).

The color palette was beautiful and vibrant, full of blues, yellows, watermelon pinks, and so much more. However, Marc Jacobs decided to throw them all on one bag! Bags with 3 or more colors, plus different colored handles, are too much for me to handle (literally and figuratively). An interesting twist on the bags was somewhat psychedelic monogram patterns, as well as turning many of the iconic bags into frame bags with little tags hanging that stated their name (i.e. papillon, speedy, and alma). There are also bags with ‘Louis Vuitton’ spelled out all over the bag (Think last season’s Marc Jacobs bags that did the same). This season is definitely not for the faint-hearted, or for someone looking for a classic piece to carry for years. I am intrigued enough to wonder what bags will actually make it into production.

louis vuitton mini grimaud handbag

I have been obsessing over this Louis Vuitton man bag since the second our favorite Bal Harbour SA ‘J’ allowed me to lay my eyes on it. The Mini Grimaud from the Bequia line is the ultimate, sophisticated man bag that inherits bold features from its vintage sister Grimaud (which was recently brought back to life in Damier canvas, without the traditional shoe inserts, though). The calf leather is very thick, which makes the Mini Grimaud a heavy carry even in an empty state. Numerous chunky brass pieces and the heavy-duty zipper add additional weight, which does limit the bag’s portability (not a comfortable aeronautical traveling bag) but makes a perfect companion for weekend convertible trips to the Hampton’s. For $2,550, you get a sturdy short-traveler that will last a lifetime. Available via 1-866-VUITTON or eLuxury’s exclusive Vuitton boutique.

louis vuitton cornelia ankle bootThere comes a time in every woman’s life where you throw reason out the window and just decide to go for it! For some women this might be deciding to date a certain man, or accept a job offer. In my case it is these shoes, the Louis Vuitton Cornelia Ankle Boot. These are not your Mom’s frumpy ankle boots from the 1980s, these are simply divine works of art. Immediately upon seeing these boots the pleasure center of my brain completely overtook the sensible part of my brain and screamed out in pure shoe fetish ecstasy. Made of croc-stamped patent leather with a feminine rounded toe and a killer 4.75″ stacked heel, these exquisite boots just scream out ‘BUY ME’! These are the kind of shoes that can make any outfit look out of this world. At a mere $1,090 we should all be running out to buy a pair. Or if you have a little more spare cash available then buy them in both available colors, grenat and black.

louis vuitton monogram denim

Since it was released, I have loved the monogram denim line. It is casual chic, with the logo still visible but a little less noticeable and a laid-back touch of style. Especially when I am in the Mid West, but even when in south Florida, laid back style goes a long way. Louis Vuitton offers an array of Denim products to meet your fancy! My next trip to the fabulous Bal Harbour Louis Vuitton shop will include my perusing the denim collection and picking up a little piece of blue.

bernaud arnault louis vuitton We are all very aware that we pay mark up on our designer handbags, and if you are not aware, get out from under that rock. I love designer handbags, obviously, but sometimes even I gasp at the price tags. If you ever shop with me you may see me peering at price tags and my face becoming flush and then I walk off and browse more. That is from the price tag, the exorbitant price tag. But I keep on buying and I keep on sharing with all of you the next hot handbags and those that are not. The writer of Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Lustre, Dana Thomas, compared Louis Vuitton to McDonald’s, being recognizable as the golden arches with no pizazz from the chairman of Louis Vuitton, Bernard Arnault.

Dana Thomas is stuffing envelopes with copies of Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Lustre and writing notes to go with them. What to say to Bernard Arnault, chairman of Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, one of the world’s biggest producers of luxury goods? “Oh, I dunno. ‘I hope you enjoy my book’,” she says. Arnault will have a fit.

The French mogul is fingered as a fiendish money-making former property developer with no artistic sensibility and Louis Vuitton is characterised as the McDonald’s of the luxury industry. “A million served,” says Thomas drily. The logo is as recognisable as the golden arches. “It really is. I would certainly put it in the top 10, along with Nike, Coca-Cola.”
