Extreme Makeover: Gaudy Homes Edition

Check out this home in Mexicali called the “casa de Louis Vuitton.” Anyone who stencils the bling-y logo on the outside of their home is either a genuine LV super-fan or someone so crazy-pants they’ve taken knockoffs to the next level. But, hey, it certainly distracts from those sketchy bars on the door and windows. [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »

Behind The Scenes Of The Louis Vuitton 2010 Fall/Winter Campaign

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Louis Vuitton campaign for fall/winter 2010, featuring Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova — or, as Marc Jacobs calls them, “three of the most beautiful women, I think, in the world.” The ladies pose for photographer Steven Klein in a faux dressing room done up in old-school Hollywood glamour. There’s lots of ’50s ponytails, retro-dresses, and, of course, bags, bags, and more bags. It’s definitely a return to tailored femininity; punk rock, it ain’t. Makeup artist extraordinaire Pat McGrath makes a cameo. It’s all very pretty-pretty and perfect for those among you who consider yourselves girlie girls. Keep reading »

Tourist Fined €1000 For Buying €7 Counterfeit Louis Vuitton Bag

In an apparent effort to be as ridiculous as possible, Italian mayor Francesco Calzavara has instituted insane fines for people caught purchasing counterfeit goods. Ursula Corel, a 65-year-old tourist visiting from Vienna, learned this the hard way last week when she was fined €1000 while haggling for a €7 Louis Vuitton replica on the beach near Venice. We’re not fans of counterfeiting — it’s tacky and ethically questionable — but this still strikes us as a punishment totally not in keeping with the crime. True, without buyers, the €7 billion counterfeiting industry would be crippled, but putting that large a burden on the buyers seems more like a desperate attempt on the part of the state to bring in revenue than a legitimate punishment for buying a fake Louis. Thoughts? [The Guardian] Keep reading »

The FIFA World Cup Trophy Travels In Style

When you’re made of 18-karat gold and malachite, only the best travel accommodations will do. A classic monogram Louis Vuitton trunk functions as the home of the FIFA World Cup trophy as it travels to the games in South Africa. [Paris, 6/1/10] Keep reading »

Inevitable: The Louis Vuitton iPad Case

We’re actually surprised this hadn’t happened sooner, but here she is: the Louis Vuitton iPad case, available in the iconic LV logo leather or a smoky graphic print. Predictably, the price tag hovers around some 350 dollars. Another surprise—these models aren’t out yet, and apparently won’t hit stores until 2011. Either people are running to get the Chinatown knockoff already, or Louis Vuitton is a marketing genius who knows that brand fans get way too worked up over anticipation.
