When A Label Knockoff Is Much More Than A Rip-Off

Most tourists that visit New York know that if you want a Coach bag, but don’t want to pay Coach prices, you can head down to Chinatown and buy a Coach knockoff for a fraction of the designer price. The counterfeit business is a multimillion dollar illegal industry, and you’d be surprised how many fashionista…

Gwyneth Paltrow In Nothing But Fishnets And Diamonds

Gwyneth Paltrow looks mighty fine posing in nothing but fishnets and Louis Vuitton jewelry in the new issue of Vanity Fair. She could teach the “America’s Next Top Model” cadre a thing or two about looking innocent and thoroughly sexy at the same time. Smize away, girl. [VF]…

Quickies: Angelina Jolie Goes Sans Fards For Louis Vuitton & Taylor Momsen Flashes Her Boobs Again

Angelina Jolie’s first print ad for Louis Vuitton features the actress with no makeup (sans fards!!!) and wearing her own clothes. Because Louis Vuitton is so relatable. [Dlisted]
Denise Richards, Charlie Sheen’s ex and mother of his two young daughters, is apparently writing a tell-all about their marriage and divorce. I suppose I would be…

Let’s Hope Sofia Coppola’s New Movie Isn’t As Boring As Her Louis Vuitton Line

Sofia Coppola’s new film, “Somewhere,” is set to debut at the Venice Film Festival next week (sorry if you weren’t invited—you’ll have to wait for the December release date). We’re itching to see it because, no matter the story line, Sofia’s work is usually a visual playground of nostalgic places, saccharine candy colors, and compelling…

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.

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…

Paris Hilton’s Moving Boxes

Really, though, all of that is just her luggage for a trip to South Africa for the World Cup. If only she were planning a not-so-covert move far, far away … [Fashion Indie]…

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…

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]…

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…

Louis Vuitton Bag Monitors Your Emotions For You

The last time we heard from Louis Vuitton, they were offering $2,000 garbage bag purses. What’s next? A bag that monitors your emotions for you. In theory — and we do mean “theory” — the bag will “feel what you feel” while you take your walkabout. A jewelry accessory attached to the bag features a…

Louis Vuitton Spawns $2,000 Garbage Bag Purses

It’s not a garbage bag, it’s a purse. And it’s not just any garbage bag purse, it’s a Louis Vuitton garbage bag purse. I think it’s great. I mean, I took my garbage out this morning, and I thought, you know, if I was doing this with a Louis Vuitton garbage bag purse, I would

Louis Vuitton Gets The Draw On The Uggs/Jimmy Choo Collaboration

Early this week we told you Uggs and Jimmy Choo are teaming up for a collaboration. And we used the power of Photoshop to imagine a pair of high-heeled Uggs. But lo and behold, Louis Vuitton already has a version of this shoe.

Topshop Does Louis Vuitton Bunny Ears On A Budget

Louis Vuitton’s now-famous bunny ears retail for about $335, which, given that you have to tie them yourself, is a bit steep for us. To remedy the situation, Topshop has just knocked them off at a lower price ($36!) and with a more convenient headband attachment. Yes, this remains a particularly ridiculous accessory, but they’re…

Louis Vuitton And Damien Hirst Put Some Junk In Their Trunks

Here’s a lesson in how to be cool and highly pretentious at the same time: Louis Vuitton collaborated with Damien Hirst to create these surgical trunks inspired by a David Cronenberg film. [View on Fashion]…

Sequins For Men?

The staff of Dazed Digital got a sneak peek at some of the goods from Louis Vuitton’s men’s collection. The spring 2010 line apparently includes these very shiny dress shoes covered in silver sequins. As far as sequins in men’s fashion go, they’ve thankfully stayed put in the closets of Chippendale’s dancers. Is this Loui…

Would You Wear Bunny Ears?

Remember those Louis Vuitton bunny ears from 2009? Well, two women at New York magazine got their hands on a pair of them and took their new stylish ears out for a test-drive. For starters, the ears, when you first get them, are way bigger and somewhat less easy to style than you might…

How Do We Feel About Fanny Packs?

Personally, I hate fanny packs. To me, they represent crowds at amusement parks and tourists in Europe that give Americans a bad name. You know what I’m talking about. But Marc Jacobs is trying to bring back the pack, as he sent his models down the runway during the Louis Vuitton Spring 2010 show sporting…

Move Over Madonna

When one door closes, another opens. We’ll sort of miss Madonna’s insanely airbrushed Louis Vuitton ads, but we certainly don’t mind staring at their new spring muse, supermodel Lara Stone. [Fashionologie]…
