Opener

They no longer displayed knockoffs of high-end designer bags in the open. And it could get even worse if a proposal by Councilwoman Margaret Chin (D-Chinatown) making it a misdemeanor to purchase counterfeit items becomes law. She took me between two cars and behind a van, and a man who had followed us up the street showed me a catalogue. Inside were four pages of laminated Louis Vuitton products — wallets and purses and bags of all sizes and colors. I pointed to a basic Go To My Site wallet and he said “Okay” and walked around the corner. Two minutes later he came back with the wallet I had selected and assured me it was high quality. “It’s good,” he said, manipulating the zippers. “You pay me $40.” After I paid, I went to Louis Vuitton’s flagship store on Fifth Ave. and found the exact same wallet — at first glance at least — for $765.

They’re also, of course, traveling by private plane. The video has sparked criticism from all over the world, prompting Thailand’s Office of National Buddhism to announce it is now monitoring the monks for inappropriate behavior. The agency’s director-general Nopparat Benjawatananun said this week : “When Lord Buddha was alive, there wasn’t anything like this. There were no cars, smartphones or cameras, so the rules were much simpler. While the monks need to keep themselves abreast of new knowledge, current events and technology, they are restrained to choose the appropriate tools. Nopparat added that the Buddhist monks in the video were acting “inappropriately, not composed and not adhering to Buddha’s teachings of simplicity and self-restraint.” Glad that’s settled. He did, however, offer one interesting piece of data by way of explanation:  ”In many cases, it was the followers who gave the monks the luxury. Some bought them sports cars.

A Dinosaur’s Story introduced some of the friendliest pre-historic animals to the world, Louis Vuitton is introducing the most stylish. The often-imitated French fashion house recently filled its Fifth Avenue Maison windows with accessory-clad dinosaur skeletons, bringing the reptiles back to the future for the world to see. The golden dinosaurs interact with handbags — the Speedy, the Sofia Coppola, the Alma, and the Noe to name a few — as well as mannequins dressed in LV’s pre-fall ’13 collection. Museum-style signage offers informative product details and sets the merchandise apart as treasures to be looked at and admired. Thankfully, these dinosaurs are more welcoming than they are frightening, inviting in passersby and reassuring us that a keen sense of style is everlasting.

We’ve long thought Louis Vuitton’s epic handbags are museum quality, but now their flagship store will be, too. Starting tomorrow at Louis Vuitton’s Fifth Avenue Maison, models of dinosaur fossils will appear in the windows, propping up and interacting with classic Vuitton bags including the Speedy, the Sofia Coppola (created in partnership with the filmmaker), and the Alma. Mannequins dressed in Vuitton’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection will “ride” the dinosaurs, too (but with considerably less carnage and more status accessories than Laura Dern in Jurassic Park). The project was inspired by a visit to the French Natural History Museum in Paris’s Les Jardins des Plantes. As these exclusive behind-the-scenes images from the Vuitton studio prove, when history repeats itself, it sometimes gets much more chic.

When it comes to luxury goods, few cities in the world can match Dubai for authenticity, variety and price. However, while brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Coach have a dedicated buyer marker here, for those just shy of the odd thousand dirhams to get that dream bag, a bargain offer is always on hand, or on the internet. So how do you tell if the great deal you just sourced is an original or a fake. We bag an expert, a fake and an original bag of two major brands and walk you through the process.   Responding to questions from Emirates 24|7, Louis Vuitton said, “In order to preserve our ability to efficiently fight against counterfeiting, we are unable to provide details on our manufacturing procedures or those used in counterfeit products. “However, please note that Louis Vuitton does not stamp serial numbers on its products as means of identification or authentication.” Our bag expert in the video does talk about a ‘bag code’. So what is that? The statement adds: “Louis Vuitton does use manufacturing codes in our products; however, the presence of a number on a piece does not determine authenticity.” Also, Louis Vuitton cannot comment on or guarantee the authenticity of products purchased elsewhere. Shopping through Louis Vuitton’s exclusive distribution network is the only way for customers to ensure that their Louis Vuitton product is authentic.

Here, carpenters create the skeletons of those legendary LV trunks with supple wood sourced from France and Africa, the combination of which helps the luggage withstand variable weather conditions. Nearby, the less exotic leathers are stored — lamb and goat for linings, veal and cowhide for exteriors — all at a constant temperature (between 16 and 19 degrees Celsius). The house’s signature material is flesh-colored natural cowhide leather, the basis for all monogram bags. The more exotic leathers — stingray so thick you can’t stitch into it, python skins as long as eight meters — require specific expertise. Each exotic skin is colored and given a matte or glazed finish, then cut with pressurized machines, except for special orders, which are always cut by hand. Upstairs, craftsmen assemble and perfect the pieces. Glimpsing an unfinished handbag lining is like catching someone in her underwear: it appears denuded, vulnerable.

We have rounded up a list of Louis Vuitton accessories for fashion conscious fathers. While all the three bags belong to their Summer Spring 2013 collection, the cufflinks and bracelet will also help to jazz up the world’s best father’s style statement.
