Louis Vuitton celebrates Americana
The collection also features the most expensive bag in the store, the Bowling handbag. At NIS 70,000, the Bowling is made of Louis Vuitton canvas, python and crocodile skins. We have one of the seven VIP rooms [in the world] because there was such a demand here, Ayelet Dobkin, a publicist for Louis Vuitton said. This store is three times bigger than the first Louis Vuitton store built in Israel. Louis Vuitton Sales Associate Asaf Mizrahi agreed that it was vital to add the exclusivity to the Ramat Aviv store. One of the core values of Louis Vuitton, he said, is rarity. Its why they dont overstock the store, only receiving one or two of each of the bags that they hold in the back. One example of this is the iconic Speedy bag in blue.

Daddy Duties? Kanye West Steps Out For Lunch With Louis Vuitton Baby Bag
Even North West’s changing bag is designer! Kanye takes some time out from daddy duties as he heads out for lunch toting a Louis Vuitton holdall
The proud new dad headed for lunch without his brood at the Marmalade Cafe in Kim’s hometown of Calabasas. It seems the rapper is becoming familiar with the local area after reportedly moving into the Kardashian family home whilst his mansion he will share with Kim is renovated. Dressed casually to grab a bite to eat, the ‘Yeezus’ hitmaker dismissed his usual ostentatious outfits in favour of a baggy navy T-shirt, jeans and hi-top trainers. In true Kanye fashion, he wasn’t too impressed with the paparazzi attention as he turned his head away from the cameras as he made his way into the eatery. No stranger to luxury the bag would have set the rapper back over 1000, but it’s nothing compared to the expensive gifts that best pals Beyonce and Jay-Z have sent for the little girl.
Sorry Louis Vuitton, China’s No Longer Into You
In order to stay ahead of the game, brands must have the ability to adapt (and) reduce the risk of brand saturation.

This years China World Luxury Index shows Chinese consumer interest in the luxury fashion segment is mostly fixated on 10 global brands.

Louis Vuitton buying Philippine croc skins
Located in Barangay New Katipunan in Kapalong, the 10-hectare JKMSAE farm breeds over 6,000 crocodiles both for conservation (Crocodylus mindorensis species) and trade purposes. The crocodile slaughterhouse is considered to be the most modern and second largest in the country. Mercado said that the JKMSAE slaughters at least 24 crocodiles a day. The reptiles first undergo an electric stunner and the coil is cut before their brains are picked to make sure that the crocodiles are dead. Mercado said that while the skin is sold to luxury bag makers, the crocodile meat, on the other hand, is sold in the local market and made into delicacies. Mercado stressed that crocodiles are very important to eco-balance for the productivity of wetlands, hence the farm is also into conservation efforts.

The collection ranged from the road trip, as imagined in khaki parkas with travel badges and cotton printed bandanas, to a whole mix of different American styles: From sportswear, as in white, blue and red silk graph check tailored shorts, to Gatsby-style evening suits in raw kimono silk with a classy curved lower part. As ever, when traveling anywhere Vuitton-style, don’t expect to rough it. Stylish and coiffed David Beckham looked approvingly on from the front row. Silhouettes were tight and masculine.
