Angelina Jolie and Michelle Williams help Louis Vuitton regain their exclusivity as £3,000 Capucine bag becomes must-have
“I was shocked on lots of different levels. Firstly, I was American. Secondly, I was surprised that Louis Vuitton was even considering fashion. They had always been known for one thing, and here they were deciding that they wanted to move into all these different categories.” In the new exhibition, Jacobs has dedicated space not only to these but also to the people he says have most influenced his work. This, too, is unprecedented: portraits of Miuccia Prada, Rei Kawakubo, Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Dior will appear on the walls. If it’s plainly obvious that every designer has his or her references, Jacobs is prepared to name them, a mark of confidence if ever there was one.

At the moment thats Louis Vuittons Capucines handbag, which is selling out across Europe as fashionistas flock to get their hands on one. But would-be buyers have to have deep pockets it costs up to 3,250. Assistants at the Louis Vuitton shop in New Bond Street, London, said the bags had sold out. They are unlikely to be back in stock until the end of the month, and then in small numbers prompting suspicions the shortage may be a marketing ruse. But is it worth the wait and the cash? Fashion writer NICOLE MOWBRAY gives her verdict A-list fan: Angelina Jolie has been spotted with a Capucine After parting with a significant amount of cash for this seasons must-have bag, its more than a little galling when it becomes noticeably last season. Its even worse when the design pops up everywhere, thanks to labels and prints now being notoriously easy to fake. Louis Vuitton, with its much-copied tan and brown monogram design, must have felt the latter particularly keenly.
that referenced the 80s. What some shoes lacked in heft, they more than made up for in embellishments. Casual footwear, including an attractive pair of python loafers, had rivets. Apart from comfy moccasin slip-ons, the LV Cruise Collection also had slippers in leather and denim and barely-there two-strap sandals. For more dressy evenings, women can choose from a line of open-toe footwear in leather and suede with either platform or conventional heels. Since the clothes were meant to be worn on holidays during a shift in seasons, LV gave women various options to layer and uncover. During balmy weather in some island-resort, for instance, women may choose to pair an A-line cotton skirt with a sleeveless silk top inspired by the LV bandana. At the same time, they have plenty of light jackets, cover-ups and even hooded windbreakers to choose from should temperatures dip. The collection wont be complete without LVs it bags. For this season, Jacobs and his collaborators opted for a continuation of the reinterpretation of the classic Damier print.

No longer! To regain some of that “you can’t have me” sparkle, Louis Vuitton released the Capucine bag (made from the same coveted leather of a special Swiss cow that Hermes uses for the Birkin bag, no less). It costs $4,600,a price tag that guarantees rescue from ubiquity and deliverance into exclusivity. The brand built “It” bag frenzy like a pro: First, they cast Michelle Williams in a buzzworthily gorgeous ad campaign , then Angelina Jolie was snapped toting the bag around town. Then everyone from Hollywood starlets to Real Housewives wanted it. But of course, Vuitton only released the already sold-out bag in small batches, creating a months-long waiting list. (Nobody gets the bag until October, no matter how rich they are.) Congratulations Louis Vuitton, you’ve done it. Again?
