Qatar-backed Louis Vuitton expands hotel portfolio
“If you look at the footprints of high-end European brands within Asia, they tend to be relatively small, but growing very quickly,” said Jason White, a portfolio specialist for the T. Rowe Price Overseas Stock Fund ( TROSX ), which holds shares of Cartier jewelry-maker Compagnie Financiere Richemont (CFR, Switzerland and Audi-maker Volkswagen (VOW, Frankfurt). White added that sales of BMW (BMW, Frankfurt) and Mercedes-maker Daimler (DAI, Frankfurt) are also surging in China. Over the past decade, there’s been a 50% increase in the number of Chinese millionaires, with most of them under 40 years old, according to CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets. And they love the glitz and glam: donning Louis Vuitton handbags and Richemont watches, sipping Dom Perignon champagne, and cruising around in Audis. “Chinese consumers have buoyed and kept the luxury markets around the world solvent,” said Shaun Rein, Shanghai-based managing director of the China Market Research Group.

Louis Vuitton raid: three arrested after designer handbag heist
At the Louis Vuitton factory I saw workers making shoes from scratch, and I even got to hammer a locket onto a heel myself! I used to see clothes and shoes as just, well, clothes and shoes. Not anymore,” she gushed to the US edition of Glamour magazine. “The pieces I wore in Venice were exquisite – each its own work of art.” Dianne continued to reveal how designer labels have transformed her understanding of fashion. The 27-year-old says a stylish outfit can alter your mood as well as how others perceive you. “Fashion can change the way you feel about yourself – and how youre seen. Im usually low-key, but when Louis Vuitton dressed me, I felt somehow mischievous and fabulous at the same time,” she laughed. “But also, when I wore those gorgeous dresses and heels, I was reminded that, as an actress, the style choices I make influence how directors think of me. Theres power in fashion.” The final piece of knowledge Dianna shared with the magazine is how important it is to be dressed appropriately. “Last but not least, I must say, when lifes big moments happen, its awfully nice to be dressed for them.
The leather goods created by French businessman Louis Vuitton are no exception: back in the 19th century, he started producing luggage trunks for Emperor Napoleons wife. Louis Vuitton eventually became a world-famous brand, and some claim that the design house might even have played a role in changing the way people travel. This is the message that the brand is aiming to spread in Macau by holding an exhibition, which is taking place at the ground floor of One Central Macau, until September 8. The Art of Travel exhibition was actually created exclusively for the Chinese audience, explained the managing director of Louis Vuitton Macau, Jeffrey Hang. After exhibits in Nanjing, Guangzhou, Wuxi and Shenyang, in mainland China, Louis Vuittons Art of Travel comes to Macau with the aim of showing it to an even bigger audience. In Jeffrey Hangs opinion: The exhibit really gives you an essence of what Louis Vuitton was all about, where the brands roots are, and its heritage. He added that, as opposed to doing something with products that people already know, this is more about going to the essence of who we are. At the ground floor atrium of One Central Macau, a tent contains treasures from the past: a suitcase from another century or a trunk that can become a wardrobe. The exhibition tells a fictional story of a traveler who stopped in Macau and collected items related to the town. Inside the tent, visitors are also able to learn about the brands evolution: from the first-ever produced trunk to the latest trolley. It definitely changed the way people travel, Jeffrey Hang declares, adding that the exhibition intends to give viewers a sense of what it would be like to be a romantic and sensitive traveler. Louis Vuitton is a French fashion house founded in 1854 by a luggage designer of the same name.
