The underthings that underpin M&S profits ‘A needle, linen thread, beeswax and infinite patience protect each over-stitch from humidity and the passage of time. ‘One could say that a Louis Vuitton bag is a collection of details.

Hes not exactly open about his sources either, telling the publication that he has some contacts who simply work for Apple in China. Asked about the money hes made with his iPhone leaks, Dickson said, I could go over to Louis Vuitton today and buy one of their bags with the money I made this month. He admits the money he’s earned got him a lot of hate, but he also makes his cash from fixing iPhones and iPods. However, this summer he’s also made a handsome profit from selling iPhone 5C cases, which fetch $250 / 190 apiece, he says. Dickson says IPs from Apples headquarters hit his web site more than 900 times last month, adding that U.S. Homeland Security visited 67 times. Some people think I may be breaking the law, but they don’t really know what I do, he tells the magazine. I’m not breaking any laws that other people don’t do. Fortunes Dewitt suggests that Apple [could] choose to prosecute [Dickson] for selling iPhone parts without a license.

Daughter’s Got a Brand New Bag, and It’s Louis Vuitton
Do start by laying out everything you plan on packing in outfits. That way, if you are missing an accessory or packing one piece that goes with absolutely nothing else, you can fix it before you start putting things in your bag. Do use your jacket as a garment bag! Since you almost always pack some kind of outerwear, whether it’s a trench, a leather jacket, or a blazer, you can use it to protect your most delicate items. Put the piece or pieces most likely to snag inside the jacket and close it up. Now, nothing can grab! Do put your shoes in a V formation, with the heels against the side structure of the bag so they can’t be snapped. Flats go on the inside since they can bear a little more weight and pressure. Put each shoe in an individual shoe bag to not only protect, but to also provide padding that keeps them from sliding around.

Shell be the No. 2 executive in a unit that accounts for half of LVMHs pretax earnings, evidence that shes being groomed for a top jobperhaps the top jobat the Paris-based luxury giant. While Vuitton is still the worlds most valuable luxury brand, its losing ground to competitors such as Gucci and Prada ( 1913:HK ) as demand wanes for the iconic LV monogrammed handbag. A report last month by consultancy Millward Brown Optimor estimated that Vuittons brand value declined 12 percent over the past year. LVMH in April reported its weakest fashion and leather goods revenues in more than three years as sales flattened in China. As consumers make room for those luxuries that make them feel better by trading down on other items, it is the middle-of-the-road brands, such as Vuitton, that have suffered, Millward Brown Optimor said. Delphine Arnaults task will be to give the brand a more exclusive aura, deemphasizing its ubiquitous monogrammed canvas bags and introducing costlier leather bags. In the short term, that could depress sales growth, as LVMH also has said it plans to open fewer Vuitton boutiques.
The story began for Louis Vuitton as a trunk-packer for rich Parisians, a job in which he was able to hone a mastery of every bolt, lock and corner of travel cases from across the French capital. He built on his knowledge, finally opening his own house in 1854. The Orient Express was new and fashionable, and the meteoric rise of haute couture under Charles Frederic Worth meant better-dressed women went on trips with more and more clothes that needed cases to fit them in. Such was the demand that the norm in the late-19th century norm, as one display shows, was for a traveling lady to take a staggering 30 large cases on each trip. From this a thousand trunks were born, Louis Vuitton all perfectly preserved with their original wax coatings and all viewable at the exhibit: hat trunks, toiletries trunks, trunks that pulled out as a chest of drawers, metal trunks for humid countries. For the trendy yet tired, there was a trunk that folded out into a bed. As it still does under Jacobs, the house had a sense for the avant-garde as early as 1890: one gargantuan case boasts the title the “Never Full Bag.” Then there was the radical facelift of the 1990s.
Louis Vuitton exhibit: It’s the bag, stupid
I was a top model in Israel and learned a lot about fashion that way – designers, cuts, styles, fabrics. As a teenager I was always going to flea markets in Israel and dressed myself with the great fashions that I found there. I liked them so much better than the designer clothing that I could have gotten for free as a model. At the age of twenty-five, I decided to move to America with my mind and heart set on opening my own boutique. My dream since I was a little girl was to have my very own designer boutique. How do you select your pieces, Simona? I have a very discerning fashionable eye. It’s something I think you’re born with and develops with life’s journey and influences. I select my pieces based on the notion – that timeless beauty is what’s always in style and forever will be.
