I’ve got a Monday morning confession for you guys: I listen to too much Drake. Arguably, any Drake is “too much Drake,” but I probably listen to too much, even by lenient standards. We all have our crosses to bear. In one song that comes up often on my iPod (“Up All Night,” if you’d like to Google it and then judge me accordingly), rapper Nicki Minaj makes a guest appearance in which she speaks of giving Lil Wayne the “Louis Presidential Briefcase.” If she’s speaking of the Louis Vuitton Président Classeur Briefcase, Ms.

We already know what Louis Vuitton’s quest for fancier customers means on the high end of the brand’s price spectrum, but changes in LV’s mid-range bags, like those made of Epi or Vernis leather, have been a little slower to materialize.
We brought you the first look at Nicolas Ghesquiere’s inaugural campaign for Louis Vuitton two weeks ago, and since then, the brand has slowly released new images from legendary photographers Bruce Weber, Juergen Teller and Annie Leibovitz. We’ve collected them for examination, and if nothing else, they show a new creative director with an exceptionally clear vision.

Jones’ has done a great deal in his relatively short tenure at the brand to make the men’s line distinctive, including creating its own logo of sorts.
Here’s Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima, enjoying the luxuries of being rich and beautiful in Miami Beach, toting a Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse Graffiti Neverfull Tote. Although Neverfulls are pretty expensive, and this one in particular is quite rare, Neverfulls actually do make pretty great beach totes for those with the funds, as long as you don’t mind getting a little sand in the lining.
Even if you’re not a sports fan, you’re probably well aware by now that a lil’ soccer tournament has started down in Brazil. The 2014 World Cup is here to keep us entertained for the next few weeks, and when it’s done, the winning team will not only receive bragging rights for the next four years, but also a little bit of Louis Vuitton.
