We weighed up whether to race the semifinals and get more race practice on the course but not knowing if Artemis would be ready to start, against spending more time on developing the boat. Without going into detail, Barker said a number of subtle changes (some cosmetic) and improvements in various components should make us significantly faster around the course. Barker said the team would not race against Artemis on Tuesday, the teams last scheduled round-robin match, opting instead to use the time to work on the boat. Artemis Racing is back sailing the teams AC 72 , following a fatal training accident in Maybut has yet to start a Louis Vuitton Cup match.

Louis Vuitton tops 2013 global luxury brand list

Reese Witherspooon Steps Out With the Louis Vuitton W August 2, 2013 0 If you’re wondering what this Fall’s It bag is going to be, then here’s your answer, courtesy of Louis Vuitton and Reese Witherspoon . The star who has made a name for herself carrying the hottest bags on the market (remember how she was one of the first to carry the Fendi 2jours tote ?) was spotted yesterday out in LA with the Louis Vuitton W, which she styled with a light-blue sweater, skinny jeans, and leopard-print Louboutins. If the leather and coated canvas carryall looks familiar to you, then that’s because you’ve already seen it starring alongside Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton’s stunning Fall 2013 campaign , where it made its official debut with Vuitton’s other headline Fall bag, the Capucine. If its sleek silhouette, classic monogram detailing, and chic celebrity sighting are any indication, then it’s clear this will be the hottest accessory of the Fall.

The fashion house has tapped Irish broadcaster Angela Scanlon to front its just-released online campaign for the new Epi leather version of the Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag. The Neverfull, which originally debuted in 2007, now comes in a variety of brilliant shades, which means the flame-haired Scanlon was undoubtedly spoiled as she was asked to take the bags out for a spin around her top-choice East London haunts. Photo: Courtesy of Jamie Smith for Louis Vuitton “I’ve always been a huge Louis Vuitton fan,” Scanlon told us. “It’s just such an iconic brand, so when they asked me to showcase their Neverfull and LV pre-fall and Icons 2013 collections in my favorite spots in London, I rescheduled a couple of things! Seriously, what girl wouldn’t want to go gallivanting around town in her Louis Vuitton finery?” The style starwho jets back and forth between London and her native Dublinhit up local hangouts ranging from her pal’s flat and Canonbury Park to Les Trois Garcons antiques shop and even a laundromat. “I wanted to really showcase the places I actually hang out at, some of which are not very glam at all,” Scanlon explained. “I think that’s what I love about them! As for the laundrette, I go there to do what you generally do in a laundrette, but I always meet the most brilliant, random people. It’s a strangely productive place for me.” And really, is there anything a Louis Vuitton carryall doesn’t go with?

To break it down, thats 80 tweets per second! Check out the vid to see what the big to do is about the SyFy flick and watch omg! Insider for more of the latest in entertainment news. More Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Gucci were the top three global luxury brands of 2013, with Fendi and Coach entering the top 10 for the first time, a study said Wednesday. The 2013 BrandZ Top 100, a ranking of the most valuable global brands compiled by research firm MillwardBrown, found luxury firms struggling with the need to balance exclusivity with attracting new customers through use of social media. “On Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and other social media platforms, brands across the luxury spectrum mediated the tension between the exclusivity that protects brand desirability and the inclusivity needed to attract new customers,” it said. The survey said luxury brands had become more “accessible, collaborative and experimental”. After a modest purchase, for example, a firm might send a thank you note on twitter while a couture fashion customer might receive an invitation to an exclusive show. Handbag firm Coach owed its position at number 10 on the list to its presence in China where it added 30 stores by the end of 2012, taking its total there to 69.

Below are quotes from team representatives who attended todayas media briefing at the Americaas Cup Media Center. Iain Percy, skipper, Artemis Racing: On the battle against the clock to get his team ready to race: ‘Personally, itas been one of my most enjoyable weeks of sailing. Weave learned so many things at such a fast rate. But to say that weare http://www.tedxyse.com/louis-vuitton-outlet.html ready to go would absolutely not be the casea Our competitors launched their boat nine months ago. We launched our boat nine days ago. Obviously if we had nine more months we would progress a lot more. Thatas not an excuse. Itas our fault we are in this position. But those are the facts.

One of those being London based street artist, Eine. Eine, AKA Ben Eine, is best known for his neon light inspired, colour popping alphabet lettering, which has become a permanent fixture on many a Brick Lane and Broadway Market shop shutter. Although akin to the likes of Banksy and Gorillaz creator, Jamie Hewlett; Eine remained relatively unknown outside of the street art world.

Louis Vuitton Cup enters new phase

The contribution of the hull shape is quite a small factor now relative to the foils. Thats the biggest difference. If you want to change the mode of the boat in any way, the foils are the big ticket item. Luna Rossa’s equivalent to May, Giorgio Provinciali, assessed the new Artemis Racing AC72’s performance: Were really impressed with the reliability level they have achieved. These boats are really difficult with a lot of systems that can fail in some way, but they’ve appeared to be very reliable. It’s also impressive how stable their foiling is and how in control the boat seems to be downwind. Artemis Racing joining the party is most welcome. Looking at the strengths and weaknesses of the campaigns going into this Semi Final competition: Luna Rossa has much more time on the water on their side, but the slower boat, while Artemis Racing’s new AC72 appears to have a more modern design, but the crew lacks time in the boat.
