LVMH Lipstick Growing Bigger Than Bags as Vuitton Slows: Retail

‘This sale which runs for 10 days provides another extended opportunity for buyers around the world to purchase handbags and accessories by some of the greatest designers of all time.’ Handbag history: A lesson Hermes Kelly and Birkin bags continue to be highly sought-after and have become increasingly popular since they were first designed. Birkin bags were inspired by English actress and singer Jane Birkin in the 1980s. In a chance encounter with the former Hermes CEO on an airplane, the celebrity suggested the design for a weekend bag, which paved the way for the consistently popular Birkin bag. The Kelly bag was named after Grace Kelly, who in 1956 had just become Princess of Monaco and was seen carrying the original leather ‘Sac a depeche’ to hide her pregnancy. Photographs of the young starlet were sent all over the world, leading to the bag being known as the Kelly. Originally designed in 1935 the shape is a classic form which has gained worldwide acclaim. Actress Jane Birkin circa 1967 (left) and Coco Chanel (right) Chanel Chanel, ever practical, introduced a handbag suspended from thin straps in 1929, as an alternative to the clutch – freeing up the busy woman-about-towns hands for other things. When she returned from retirement in 1954, Chanel decided to update her handbag even further and called the bag 2.55 after the date of creation, February 1955. The 2.55 remains the most popular bag today, both vintage and new. In fact, Chanel released an exact copy of the original 2.55 in February 2005 to commemorate the bags 50th birthday. It remains a design classic, with its quilted exterior and double chain straps. Fans will know that the burgundy leather interiors were said to be inspired by Chanels convent school uniform and that when this bag has the Mademoiselle lock, it is known as a Classic Flap. The Double C lock was introduced in the 1980s.

Fashion Dissection: Who Rocked It Best At “Louis Vuitton” Opening Event

Vicente Mercado, chairman of the board of J.K. Mercado and Sons Agricultural Enterprises, Inc. (JKMSAE) that owns the crocodile farm and slaughterhouse, said that other premium bag makers also buy the skins that they get from the slaughtered saltwater crocodiles or the Crocodylus porosus species. Quality crocodile skin commands a very high price and is said to be sold per centimeter. 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.

and U.S., and by 5 percent to 10 percent in Asian markets including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore, the analyst wrote. The euros strength against some currencies may lead LVMH to charge more, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bernard Arnault said Jan. 31. Vuittons price increase in Japan, the biggest ever by the brand in the country, was taken to offset the impact of the yens slide on sales, the company said Feb. 20. In addition to protecting margins, the price increases must be seen, in our view, as a means to accelerate LVs repositioning towards more leather, Belge wrote. The decision will probably weigh on the number of items sold, though its the right thing for brand equity longer term. Vuittons 2013 sales may rise 6 percent, excluding currency moves, while volume may decline 2 percent to 3 percent, Belge wrote.
