A Replica Louis Vuitton Montaigne That Breaks Old Myths

Pursevalley.cn Review

As you already know, finding a trustworthy website can be a tough job but that’s why I’m here for. I have a few favorite sites but when it comes to Louis Vuitton purses I’m even more selective. Louis Vuitton bags are very special and you should always check even the smallest details.

Since I’ve seen too many poorly made replicas out there that make my eyes and heart hurt I want to spare you of this terrible feeling. Not to drag this any longer, here is my friend’s review:

“Hi Eva!

I received my replica Louis Vuitton from PurseValley.cn. I think the bag looks good, I noticed that the strap is a little longer than the original one, that’s the only difference I have noticed so far. I would like to know your opinion. I hate to wear a bag if people can tell that is fake.

Please let me know.
Thank you!”

Congrats on your purchase! I think this is a really good replica LV purse and I’m glad you’re happy with your bag. Don’t worry, nobody will notice you’re wearing a fake Louis Vuitton bag.

From what I see in your photos, the Monogram Canvas looks just amazing, just like the authentic model. I know from personal experience the vachetta used on the replica handbags from Pursevalley.cn oxidizes and gets that dark honey color we all love so much! You can even speed up the oxidation process but it also depends on the model.

You know that myth you always read about online when checking articles on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton bags? The one saying that the monogram pattern should be symmetric anywhere fabrics are stitched together and that if the the pattern doesn’t perfectly match up it’s probably a knockoff? Please see the photos below. (Courtesy of purseblog forum)

The bag in these photos is the authentic version of the Louis Vuitton Montaigne bag. Have you seen a matching pattern? Because I haven’t! And this is not the only authentic bag with this “flaw”. So girls, please stop believing everything you read online! There are so many misleading guides on how to spot fake Louis Vuitton purses… If you’re ever in doubt, you can always send me an email or leave a comment on the blog.

So ladies, do you like this Louis Vuitton Montaigne bag?

Louis Vuitton Window Displays by Frank Gehry

Louis Vuitton News

World-renowned architect, Frank Gehry, winner of the 1989 Pritzker Prize, is turning his talents to the design of window displays for the first time. In September, Louis Vuitton store windows will feature Gehry’s sculptures alongside its Fall/Winter 2014 collection.

Strongly inspired by stylish schooners of the past, the sculptures are made from wooden structures covered in metal. “They are like sails filled by a following wind. We’ve called them Wind Wings,” explains the architect. Welcome from Canada Goose shop to purchase.

Bulging oblong, metal hulls are curved, twisted, exaggerated and grouped together. They partially cover one another, rolling against each other, nestled together, caressing one another. They stand like caparisoned horses, or shell-patterned mantillas. They are at once sails and hulls.

Shells, casings and armour alongside corsets and sheath dresses… The sculptures pay tribute to both architecture and fashion, two arts that protect the human body. The sculptures are static yet capture a sense of movement. Frank Gehry believes that architecture and sculpture must be dynamic.

From September, the Louis Vuitton window displays will dance on imaginary waves.

By creating subtle combinations, these basic elements can be used to vary the groups of sculptures. Like a composer with musical notes, a conductor with his musicians, Frank Gehry uses his metal sails to bring elegance and lightness to the Louis Vuitton window displays.

Passers-by and visitors will be able to view exclusive content when they scan the window displays with their mobile phones using the Louis Vuitton Pass app.

Louis Vuitton Fashion Photography

Louis Vuitton News

In October 2014, Rizzoli New York publishes an album of fashion photographs like no other. Bringing together nearly 200 images by leading photographers of yesterday and today, this book presents a photographic approach to the history of fashion featuring Louis Vuitton products, from its advertising campaigns to fashion articles in A-list magazines.

Initially focused on capturing the trends of the day, fashion photography has gone beyond the mere representation of a particular style or look to share a vision of a feminine ideal and bear witness to its evolution, achieving recognition as an art form along the way. An art that, filtered through the photographer’s eye, offers a reflection on society and its values. The 200 photographs presented in this volume offer a singular approach to women’s history and the history of photography from the 1950s up to the present. Included are photographs by major figures such as Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Henry Clarke, Patrick Demarchelier, Annie Leibovitz, Peter Lindbergh, Craig McDean, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Juergen Teller, Mario Testino, and Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, all of whom have excelled at conveying the spirit of Louis Vuitton.

Each of the book’s three main sections — fashion articles since 1977, Louis Vuitton advertising campaigns, flashback to the 1950s — includes an introductory text by the photography writer and curator Charlotte Cotton. The book’s preface is by Martin Harrison, a curator of art and photography recognized as one of the foremost authorities on Francis Bacon and the author of a number of monographs in the field.

A limited edition, available for sale exclusively at Louis Vuitton stores and online, features a deluxe white canvas binding, with a choice of three different cover photographs, by Patrick Demarchelier, Craig Mc Dean or Bert Stern.

Charlotte Cotton is an independent curator of and writer about photography. She was previously the curator and head of the Wallis Anneberg Department of Photography at LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) and earlier was curator of photographs at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. She is the author and editor of several books, including Imperfect Beauty (2000), Guy Bourdin (2003) and The Photograph as Contemporary Art (2004).

Martin Harrison began to think seriously about fashion photography when writing the catalogue for Shots of Style, Victoria and Albert Museum, 1985, an exhibition of great fashion photographs selected by David Bailey. He is the author of numerous books, including Beauty Photography in Vogue (1987) and Appearances: Fashion Photography since 1945 (1991). As well as many non-fashion books, he has published monographs on Lillian Bassman, Patrick Demarchelier, Lisa Fonssagrives, Peter Lindbergh, Norman Parkinson, Paolo Roversi, Melvin Sokolsky and Bruce Weber. He has been writing about Francis Bacon since 1999, and the 4-volume catalogue raisonné of his paintings will be published in 2015.

Michel Mallard, creative director evolving at the crossroads of art and media, provided the innovatory force behind the re-launching of magazines such as Vogue Hommes International, L’Officiel de la Mode, Jalouse. Exhibition curator, he has conceived and organized exhibitions with artists such as Melvin Sokolsky, Steven Meisel, Steven Klein, Guy Bourdin, Saul Leiter, Inez & Vinoodh, Peter Knapp. His Paris-based art direction studio has designed books for Thomas Ruff, Jonas Mekas and Jean Baptiste Mondino, among others. For 13 years he curated the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography. Among his many exhibitions stand out Fashion in the Mirror (2008) at The Photographer’s Gallery (London) and Art Director’s Cut (2005) at La Chaufferie (Strasbourg), the latter devoted to his own work as an art director.

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2014 City Bags Ad Campaign Featuring Michelle Williams

Louis Vuitton News

Following her highly successful debut as the face of Louis Vuitton, actress Michelle Williams is back this spring in a second advertising campaign spotlighting three key city bags: the new Lockit, the Capucines, and the iconic Alma.

Photographed once again by Peter Lindbergh, whose sensitive portraits embodied the spirit of the first campaign, Michelle Williams is here revealed in a new light, bringing her special acting talents to bear as she projects three different facets of femininity in a series of visuals styled by Carine Roitfeld.

Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2014 City Bags Ad Campaign Featuring Michelle Williams 8 Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2014 City Bags Ad Campaign Featuring Michelle Williams

For the Lockit, Louis Vuitton’s contemporary reinterpretation of its classic 1950s design, Michelle Williams is the essence of the stylish, self-confident Parisienne. Her nonchalant poses reflect the understated elegance of the new day bag in supple Veau Cachemire leather, which is featured in chic pastel shades. For the Alma, the actress is in playful spirits, showcasing the bag’s eye-popping colors of Epi leather as she perches on a pile of trunks. The ladylike Capucines, meanwhile, is ideally complemented by a more restrained, sophisticated mood.

From the compelling combination of force and fragility of the first campaign, to the vibrant contrasts of this second outing, Michelle Williams – as she has done so many times on screen – makes her own her latest role as the multi-faceted Louis Vuitton woman.

First rising to prominence in Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain (2005), Michelle Williams went on to give critically acclaimed performances in films such as Synecdoche, New York (2008), Shutter Island (2010), and My Blue Valentine (2010). In 2011, her performance as Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn earned her a Golden Globe and her third Oscar nomination. Michelle Williams has finished filming Suite Française, which is based on the award-winning novel by Irène Némirovsky, discovered decades after the writer’s death in Auschwitz.

The new Louis Vuitton advertising campaign with Michelle Williams will break in the May 2014 issues of magazines worldwide.

Louis Vuitton L’Aventure Pop-Up Store Opens at Hong Kong Pacific Place

Louis Vuitton News

“The Monogram must have been sent round every airport carousel in the world, and been through every cruise terminal and train station. The legendary signature has adventure embedded in its core”, says Tyler Brûlé, founder of Monocle magazine.

The “L’Aventure” pop-up store, an unprecedented space that highlights Louis Vuitton’s expert authority on travel, opens 4 April 2014 at The Space on 4/F at Louis Vuitton Pacific Place, Hong Kong, offering a selection of luggage in the legendary Monogram canvas, travel accessories, and looks for the modern traveller. From trunk beds destined for expeditions on the African continent to luggage designed to equip half-track vehicles across Asia, adventure is intrinsic to Louis Vuitton.

Designed in a collaboration by Tyler Brûlé with his team, the pop-up store, which has been transported from the prestigious Avenue Montaigne in Paris, France to Hong Kong to accompany great travelers of the modern age who crisscross the globe, is the perfect embodiment of the spirit of adventure. Upon entrance, a bold window display of brightly colored monkeys and LV’s classic trunks and bags dangling from a golden palm tree greets visitors. Inside, a leather hammock is positioned next to potted palms. Eyes are immediately drawn to artist Letman’s boldly colorful illustrated mural, depicting a playful rendition of LV personalization codes – a striking contrast against the store’s warm wood floors and dark wood ceilings. Opposite the mural, vintage trunks are displayed on shelves suspended by cowhide leather straps. Stepping in, you feel as if you’ve entered the golden age of travel, rediscovering a world where travelers think nothing of traversing continents with a dozen trunks.

“L’Aventure pays tribute to the spirit of travel, the thirst for conquering the unknown, and celebrates elegance on the move with tasteful and functional luggage that fulfill the requirements of each new generation of travelers, from the golden age of the ocean liner to the conquest of the air to the advent of the automobile.

To accompany globetrotters from the past to the present, wherever they may roam, this store will offer not only luggage and “L’Aventure” travel accessories, but also a number of unique services by artisans such as:

The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie Experience

Louis Vuitton News

Haute Maroquinerie, high leathergoods… objects of desire, the pinnacle of Louis Vuitton’s craftsmanship and the ultimate shopping experience. This exclusive service allows every woman to create a unique bag of her own, by choosing the style, the leather and the color according to her preference. Understated elegance. Perfect for the most discerning, for the leather connoisseurs.

Only a handful of Louis Vuitton stores offer this service. But luckily, the Haute Maroquinerie is touring around the world giving women a chance to experience the service without having to travel abroad to the Haute Maroquinerie salons. The Haute Maroquinerie caravan is currently in Manila at the Louis Vuitton Greenbelt 4 store in Makati City.

I was invited by Louis Vuitton Philippines to see and experience the Haute Maroquinerie service. And here’s what happened.

Step 1: The Shapes

Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie The Shapes The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie Experience

The Haute Maroquinerie private customization session takes place at the VIP Salon. Upon entering, clients are offered a gorgeous Louis Vuitton canapé and dessert set prepared by Chef Colin Mackay of Sala Restaurant. The customization session begins with the client choosing from five different shapes inspired by the Maison’s most iconic pieces; Lockit, Triangle, Noé, Néo-Steamer (Trapèze) and Milaris (Berlingot).

Haute Maroquinerie 3 The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie Experience

Sac Lockit – Closed or even padlocked, yes, but nonetheless open to the winds of modernity. Created in 1958, the curved lines, like a taut architectural sketch, translated into instant success for this bag. Time has brought volume and suppleness to its impeccable appearance. Available in PM, MM and GM sizes.

Sac Triangle – This “work bag” was designed in 1934 to accompany women involved with needlework wherever they went. Renamed the Triangle in the 1980s, its originality has brought it back to the forefront.

Sac Noé – This chic bucket was named after the biblical character Noah. If ever there had been a flood, it would have been one of Champagne. Created in 1932 to transport five bottles of the “divine brew”, this drawstring bag worn over the shoulder brings a dash of classicism to today’s elegant woman. Available in PM and GM sizes.

Sac Néo-Steamer (Trapèze) – Introduced in 2011, the bag’s mysterious shape hints at well-kept secrets. An exception to the rules of geometry, this bag shows off its originality with a casual elegance.

Sac Milaris (Berlingot) – It’s a craving. Gourmand and desirable, round and square, supple and roomy. Carried in the hand or slipped into the crook of the elbow, it opens wide to more easily accommodate all that you need for a day, a week or forever. Available in PM and GM sizes.

I chose the bi-color Milaris PM because of its supple and plump silhouette. It may look small on the outside but once opened, the interior space is very generous. Also, Milaris has a secret pocket, which adds a nice touch.

Step 2: The Leathers and Color

Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie The Leathers The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie Experience

After deciding on the shape, Ms. Angela opened the Haute Maroquinerie trunk. Spread out in front of me were swatch books of the finest leathers I have ever seen, in a myriad of different colors ranging from neutrals to trendy brights.

The colors are divided into three families: Traditional LV Colors which features the signature House colors like Blanc, Blanc Cassé, Gris Souris, Taupe, Noir, Moka, Brun, Tabac and Caramel. Next are the Timeless Colors, which is a classical palette composed of Cassis, Violet, Iris Noir, Rouge, Bleu Marine, Bleu Océan, Bleu Canard and Bleu Azur. And last, the bright Vibrant Colors which include Vert Forèt, Kiwi, Pomme, Pistache, Ocre, Mandarine, Capucine, Grenade and Aubergine. Cognac is also available as an exclusive color for the Nomade leather.

Haute Maroquinerie 15 The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie ExperienceThe leathers divided into three groups of colors.

Haute Maroquinerie 16 The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie ExperienceVeau Ecorce swatch book.

The exceptional leathers are broken down into three distinct groups. Supple Calf Leathers, Firm Leathers, and Exotic Leathers.

The Supple calf leathers were unbelievably soft with varying differences in thickness and the size of the grain. Veau Ecorce has this very prominent grain which I adore. It’s the thickest of the 3 supple leathers and is suitable for both supple and structured bag shapes. Veau Bougiehad a very fine full grain as the skins came from young calves and feature a waxed finish. It’s the supplest one out of the 3 Supple leathers and is suitable for supple bag shapes. And theVeau Soie, smooth as silk. It has very fine and elegant texture, underlining the transparency of the skin and the natural slight grain of the calf. It’s the smoothest of the 3 supple leathers, but it’s more prone to surface scratches.

The Firm leathers. Chèvre Frisson, a goatskin, sourced from India has an outstanding strong grain as a result of a hand massage graining process, wrinkle is regular. It’s the only goat leather at Louis Vuitton and is both structured and relaxed for a very elegant frequent use. Chèvre Frisson comes in 8 colors: Blanc, Gris Souris, Noir, Moka, Kiwi, Grenade, Rouge and Bleu Marine.

Another Firm leather is the Nomade cowhide leather. It has a natural, even and delicate grain. Vegetal tanning was used to keep the total transparency of the skin. No additional coating was applied. Even in the darkest colors, all the natural characteristics of the leather are visible, each bag being unique. Some wrinkles may be visible on the surface of the skin as proof of authenticity. It only comes in dark earthy colors due to its vegetal tanning: Noir, Moka, Tabac, Iris Noir and Cognac.

The last of the Firm leathers is the Veau Box, made from young calf. It has a fine grain, with natural and very regular wrinkles. This leather has a brilliant sheen that gives it sophistication. It comes in 5 colors. Unfortunately, Box is not available in the collection at the moment.

Haute Maroquinerie 17 The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie ExperienceExotic crocodiliens swatch book.

The final leather group: the Exotics. The crocodiliens swatch book carries the most beautiful samples of crocodile leather in matte and brilliant finishes – both available in 16 colors.

For my bi-color Milaris, I chose the Veau Ecorce leather because I’m a big fan of textures. I wanted the bag to be light, calm and easy on the eyes so I chose Taupe for the front and back parts of the bag and Bleu Azur for the side gussets. The combination was so beautiful.

Haute Maroquinerie 19 The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie ExperienceDoublures / lining swatch book.

After picking the exterior leather and colors, I was given a swatch book for the doublures or the lining. Haute Maroquinerie offers two interior leather options: goatskin or lambskin. Goatskin is a grained leather that is both supple and resistant; it is thicker than the lambskin lining and is recommended for a bag with character inside. Lambskin, on the other hand, is totally smooth, without marked grain. It’s as soft as silk, very buttery with a sensual and intimate feel. However, lambskin is extremely sensitive to scratches.

After touching and comparing the swatches, I had no second thought of choosing the lambskin. As for the interior leather color, I can only choose between the two exterior leather colors I picked earlier. I chose Bleu Azur. It made the interior look fresh and spacious.

Step 3: The Hardware

Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie The Hardware The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie Experience

Next up is the hardware. There are two options available: gold and palladium. Discreetness is a key word for the Haute Maroquinerie collection. The hardware showcases a simple Louis Vuitton Paris engraved on the padlock. The LV Monogram is nowhere to be seen. I picked palladium hardware for my cool-colored Milaris.

Step 4: The Personalization

Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie The Construction The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie Experience

To make the bag truly yours, you will be given the option to add a personalization patch with your name (or name of your loved ones) that is heat-stamped on a piece of leather and will be sewn into the interior leather lining.

Haute Maroquinerie 20 The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie Experience

Haute Maroquinerie 23 The Louis Vuitton Haute Maroquinerie ExperienceMy very own Haute Maroquinerie handbag.

My bag was a Taupe and Bleu Azur bi-color Milaris PM in Veau Ecorce, with a Bleu Azur lambskin lining and Palladium hardware. I looked at my Milaris on the flat screen, admiring every angle. I was very happy with it!

After a 50% down payment, the order will then be sent to the Louis Vuitton workshops in Asnières, France. It will take between six months (for the Supple and Firm leather bags) and a year (for the Exotic bags) to be completed.

Haute Maroquinerie Caravan at Louis Vuitton Philippines

Haute Maroquinerie is by appointment only and the caravan is set to leave the country on the last week of February 2014. So if every you’re interested with the Haute Maroquinerie, call Louis Vuitton Philippines at (02) 756-0637 for inquiries on booking an appointment slot.

Thanks so much to Louis Vuitton Philippines PR Manager Daniela Fénix San Agustin, Louis Vuitton Philippines PR Assistant Mary Reyes, and Louis Vuitton Assistant Store Manager Angela Poblador-Antonio for this fun and memorable experience!
