Louis Vuitton‘s Marc Jacobs commemorates the late fashion designer and artist Stephen Sprouse with this Tribute Collection, which is new for 2009 and will be sold shortly after a book on Sprouse’s life hits the bookshelves in January.

I suppose it is not entirely new, but this morning was the first time that I actually saw this Louis Vuitton commercial playing on TV while flipping through CNN’s Newsroom. You we can disagree over Vuitton’s luggage, I am fairly certain though that you, too, will think that it’s a beautiful piece.

Louis Vuitton Crocodile Neverfull

In the South, we’re a little weird about college football. If any of you grew up or went to college south of the Mason-Dixon line, you’re already aware of this phenomenon. Not only do our college teams garner much more ardent support than any of our professional teams, but people devote themselves to their Alma maters with an emotional vigor that is rare to find elsewhere in all of sports.

Louis Vuitton may be known for their monogram but their logo free designs lure in many LV lovers worldwide. Between the Epi Line and the Suhali Line, Louis Vuitton is able to reach out to those who yearn for a designer bag from a top house without the logo being splashed on.
