Koreas domestic economy has already entered a recovery path, said Jean Lim, a Seoul-based economist at the Korea Institute of Finance.
Bernard Arnault, the boss of parent company LVMH, said in January that Louis Vuitton planned to prune its portfolio of canvas bags, which make up two thirds of its business and generate gross margins of 90 percent. Analysts expect gross margins from leather bags such as Capucine to be slightly lower. Shop assistants said they took delivery of only a handful of Capucine bags every other week over the summer, intimating Louis Vuitton may have deliberately caused the shortage to create a buzz around the product – taking a leaf out of Hermes’ book. LVMH and Louis Vuitton declined to comment. Officially citing production constraints, Hermes is known in the luxury world for its shortages and waiting lists, particularly for its popular 7,000 to 30,000 euro Birkin and Kelly bags, which help strengthen the brand’s appeal. “I take it as a very positive sign that the Capucine bag is sold out,” Exane BNP Paribas analyst Luca Solca said.

The same restraint was evident in ankle boots and loafers the seasons it bag can be held or slung across the body. 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.
Louis Vuitton brings back the bohemian look
With it, the brand seems to be celebrating craftsmanship rather than the brash logos for which it has been known of late. Creating a buzz: Louis Vuitton launched the 3,000 Capucine bag earlier this year with the help of Michelle Williams Waiting list: There’s currently only one of the Capucine bags displayed as a sample in Louis Vuitton’s London’s New Bond Street store Indeed, the success of the bag marks a turnaround for the brand, which has been struggling to win back its reputation as an upmarket and exclusive label. The Capucines is made with full-grain Taurillon calf-leather, which comes from the top layer of a hide. It is subjected to minimal chemical processing (which can weaken it) and so is known for its quality, durability and signature texture. This is the same leather used by Hermes which is famous for still operating long waiting lists for its coveted Kelly and Birkin bags, decades after they launched.

Scroll down for video Model moment: Michelle Williams smoulders in Louis Vuitton’s autumn/winter 2014 campaign, but it took an army of hair-stylists, make-up artists and photography assistants to capture the perfect picture Perfect shot: With wine-colored lips and dark eyebrows, the actress models two of the French fashion house’s latest handbags, the W and the Capucines, while taking direction from famed photographer Peter Lindbergh ‘It’s like falling in love, I fall in love with characters like falling in love in life,’ said Ms Williams during the shoot. ‘I don’t try and mastermind it, I hope to try and stay very present and open to what is moving me in the moment. And generally that tends to be something that’s challenging. If it’s not challenging, then why do it?’ she added. The campaign marks Ms Williams’ first major fashion endorsement, aside from a brief spell as an ambassador for Band of Outsiders for spring/summer 2012.

The actress discussed her role as Marilyn Monroe, revealing just how seriously she takes each character in the lead up to a film.
Angelina Jolie and Michelle Williams help Louis Vuitton regain their exclusivity as £3,000 Capucine bag becomes must-have
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.

From girl-next-door to smouldering Louis Vuitton model: Behind the scenes of Michelle Williams’ first fashion campaign
If this look strikes your fancy, it can be yours for $2.35 million. Not only does the space have the easily identifiable logo painted above a stately bed, but there are other high-end brand names like Chanel and Versace that adorn the walls, too. Handbags (we’re assuming they’re the real deal) and furnishings that match the French line complete the space. Tacky or chic? You decide.
