Hermes brand Louis Vuitton fraud ‘most important in history of French stocks’
One example of this is the iconic Speedy bag in blue. Displayed in the Icon Room, directly to the left when one enters the store, its part of the pre-fall collection designed by Michael Kors. Dipped in sequins, its a fresh take on the Speedy, which was created in the 30s and was the first handbag sold by Louis Vuitton. Louis Vuitton is combining history and legacy, while adjusting to modern life and fashion, Dobkin said. Its combining two worlds. Legacy is important to the company, as shown by their prominent display of travel luggage in the very front of the store. When Louis Vuitton first started the company in 1854, the only items he made were square trunks, which differed from the average, round boxes that people traveled with in that time period. In this way, Dobkin said, he revolutionized travel for his time. The elongated shape meant that people could pack more, and would therefore travel more often. The Ramat Aviv store features one of the first travel trunks made by Louis Vuitton, a gift from the Paris Museum.
Louis Vuitton celebrates Americana

(AP Photo/Jacques Brinon) Sponsored Links The Associated Press PARIS The Louis Vuitton man moved from the eastern Himalayas of last season to the sunny West Coast of the United States for this spring-summer 2014. “This was the American road trip, just enjoying and celebrating Americana from NASA through to the traditional things such as bandanas,” said designer Kim Jones, breaking a sweat backstage Thursday at the Paris show that was held inside a scorching conservatory. The collection ranged from the road trip, as imagined in khaki parkas with travel badges and cotton printed bandanas, to a whole mix of different American styles: From sportswear, as in white, blue and red silk graph check tailored shorts, to Gatsby-style evening suits in raw kimono silk with a classy curved lower part. As ever, when traveling anywhere Vuitton-style, don’t expect to rough it. Stylish and coiffed David Beckham looked approvingly on from the front row. Silhouettes were tight and masculine. The 41 classy looks were fairly eclectic and so served up a little something for everyone. The collection, however, produced no great creative surprises, apart from the piece de resistance: A fantastic retro black silk jacket with mother-of-pearl jacquard featuring the famed LV monogram.
Daughter’s Got a Brand New Bag, and It’s Louis Vuitton
When I ask how many of those bags they hope to sell, he answers: 2,700 BMW cars were sold last year in Poland. Thats quite a lot considering the price of these cars is 50,000 euros. Fifty thousand euros for a car is not the same as 20,000 for a handbag, I point out. Ask women. Many would prefer the bag, he answers. A buyer often behaves irrationally, so there is no way to tell who will buy what in the Warsaw store, explains Eggs. “I visited our shop in the south of Italy once. There was a young boy, at most 16 years old, who came to buy a leather belt for his mother. The few hundred euros he paid were mostly in change he had been saving the money for two years. When you witness that kind of situation you understand that the age, the education or the income arent the most important factors for our brand, he says.
Delphine Arnault on June 25 was named executive vice president of Vuitton, with responsibility for overseeing its product lines. Shell be the No. 2 executive in a unit that accounts for half of LVMHs pretax earnings, evidence that shes being groomed for a top jobperhaps the top jobat the Paris-based luxury giant. While Vuitton is still the worlds most valuable luxury brand, its losing ground to competitors such as Gucci and Prada ( 1913 ) as demand wanes for the iconic LV monogrammed handbag. A report last month by consultancy Millward Brown Optimor estimated that Vuittons brand value declined 12 percent over the past year. LVMH in April reported its weakest fashion and leather goods revenues in more than three years as sales flattened in China. As consumers make room for those luxuries that make them feel better by trading down on other items, it is the middle-of-the-road brands, such as Vuitton, that have suffered, Millward Brown Optimor said.

Not been keeping up with the fraud fight? Don’t worry, we’ve summarised the full details for you here , but basically Hermes has accused Vintage Louis Vuitton Handbags Louis Vuitton’s parent company of illegally trying to amass a majority stake in its shareholdings. As the case continued to play out in a French court this week, Hermes reportedly accused LVMH of committing the “most important fraud in the history of the French stock market.” It’s a heavy claim and Hermes representatives have shown no sign of wavering under the power of their words, but despite the severity of the accusations, LVMH is still claiming total innocence. In fact, a spokesperson has gone so far as to tell French newspapers that Hermes’ claims should be dismissed entirely, and considered a part of a wider slander campaign. Eeish. You can’t get more of an ‘it wasn’t me’ than that. What do you think?
