Louis Vuitton, With a Touch of the Southwest
Oh, good grief. Because obviously, you dont have enough shoes in your collection already, July 15 marks the launch of the Louis Vuitton Shoe Salon (a.k.a. heaven) within the department stores Shoe Hall. Alongside a carefully curated selection of the brands luxury footwear, Louis Vuitton High Heels therell also be a limited edition LV heel on sale, titled the “Pump London.” As exclusive as it sounds, it’s actually even more so. Turns out, there are only 24 pairs of the pump being made, so expect hair pulling and elbow jabbing. Pics reveal the heel is as glorious as we’d hoped, made up in a mix of silk, satin, metallic calfskin blend, and hand-embroidered sequins. So seriously, start planning your winning tactics.

Louis Vuitton Paying $3M Less For America’s Cup Sponsorship
I adore a bandana print; Mr. Jones transformed them into shirts, including an oversize version that evoked a caftan, as well as scarves and ties. Those weathered plaid shirts? He created a slightly oversize shirt in super-fine, washed cotton. One of the red, white and blue plaid sports jackets was actually a jersey, making it travel-friendly.
Louis Vuitton has sponsored the challenger series since 1983. The regatta has gotten off to a troubled start. Artemis Racings Andrew Bart Simpson was killed in a capsize on May 9 that destroyed the Swedish-based syndicates first boat. Artemis is still about a week away from beginning sea trials on its second boat and might not be ready to sail until the Louis Vuitton Cup semifinals in early August. Although the Louis Vuitton Cup started Sunday, Saturday will be the first time two boats have been together on the race course together when Emirates Team New Zealand is scheduled to face Italys Luna Rossa. The Italians boycotted the opening race against the Kiwis on Sunday while they awaited an international jurys decision on a rules spat.
