The actress stars in the fashion house’s autumn/winter 2013-14 campaign, which focuses on two new handbags, the W and the Capucines. Sporting wine-colored lips, dark brows and her signature cropped haircut, Williams looks particularly edgy in the Peter Lindbergh-lensed shots wearing clothing from the fall collection. It’s certainly a far cry from the young girl we met on “Dawson’s Creek.” Of course, this announcement isn’t too surprising — remember how great Williams looked in her show-stopping Louis Vuitton gown at the 2012 Oscars? This partnership is also particularly noteworthy, since it marks the star’s very first major fashion campaign. (Williams did star in the Band of Outsiders lookbook back in 2012, though.) You can catch her new Louis Vuitton ads in Marie Claire France on Aug.

So it came as no surprise to see Sarah Jessica Parker carrying the latest W tote bag from Louis Vuitton during a recent outing in New York. The 48-year-old actress was spotted with the distinctive canary yellow accessory as she climbed from the rear of a car and made her way into an office building on Tuesday. Distinctive: Sarah Jessica Parker shows off her new W tote bag from Louis Vuitton on Tuesday With her hair tied back from her face and a pair of large sunglasses firmly in place, the usually good natured Sarah seemed preoccupied as she hurried past, one hand clutched tightly around the totes calfskin handles. And little wonder the luxury bag, which comes in a range of styles and colours, costs a sizeable $4400 (2907.17), no doubt a snip for Carrie Bradshaw, the designer obsessed columnist made famous by Sarah in HBO show Sex and the City. Made primarily from Veau cashmere leather, the bag which went on sale in July also includes palladium brass pieces, suede lining and various interior pockets. Smart as always: Sarah debuts the new $4,400 bag as she arrives at an office block in new York City Trendsetter: The Sex and the City star’s new bag went on sale in July Its also made up of a three-part shape that give it a distinctive look, while its exterior is decorated with the Louis Vuitton insignia. On another hot day in the Big Apple, Sex and the City star Sarah opted for a seasonal stripy vest top that showed off her toned arms -and a visible blue bra strap.

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.

To counter that perception, Arnault said the brand would move upscale and expand its leather bag offering while pruning its portfolio of LV-embossed canvas bags which make up two third of its business and generate gross margins of around 90 percent. LVMH Finance Director Jean-Jacques Guiony on Friday said Louis Vuitton’s margins rose in the first half, both at the operating and gross level, reversing a decline which analysts estimate started two or three years ago. “People feared that less canvas and more leather could impact Louis Vuitton’s margins,” said Exane BNP Paribas analyst Luca Solca. HSBC calculated that Louis Vuitton’s operating margin fell to 42 percent from 44 percent between 2011 and 2012. RELIEF Sales growth at LVMH’s fashion and leather goods division, of which Louis Vuitton makes up 75 percent of sales, doubled in the second quarter to 6 percent from 3 percent in the previous three months on a like-for-like basis. “It is a relief that there is an improvement in the second quarter and that the margin (at LV) stopped deteriorating,” said Zurich-based Andrea Gerst, who helps run the Julius Baer Luxury Brands fund with 417 million euros ($551.92 million)under management. Referring to Louis Vuitton’s performance regionally, Guiony said trading in Asia was “flattish,” in the United States “in the mid-single digits” while in Japan and Europe, it was “a bit higher or a bit lower than double digit.” Guiony added that the bulk of Chinese demand today was from tourists and estimated overall Chinese demand for the brand to be in “mid-single digits” terms.

It’s getting worked on now. Unfortunately, there’s quite a lot of work going on right now so it’s going to take a few more days than we thought. “We have our other wing on standby and ready to go. We’d like to use wing two because it’s more refined, but wing one is just as good and we’ve spent a lot of time working on it, making it good and reliable.” Artemis go into their first series still learning the limits of their boat. “Personally, it’s been one of my most enjoyable weeks of sailing,” Artemis skipper Iain Percy said of their preparations. “We’ve learned so many things at such a fast rate. But to say that we’re ready to go would absolutely not be the case. “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.

Vuitton’s grand strategy for Beijing

2.  An installation outside the store recreates the look of the runway show in Paris.

She put on a lacy black cocktail dress and matching peep-toe high heels, then presented the ensemble to a man relaxing on one of the store’s plush sofas. Outside the store’s glass doors, a crowd began to form around the installed velvet ropes, waiting for some of China’s biggest movie stars to walk down the red carpet and grace the opening of Louis Vuitton’s first women’s store in Beijing. Two decades after entering the Chinese market, the French fashion brand has become one of the country’s most sought-after names in luxury. Now, its most pressing challenge is to maintain the image of exclusivity – built from its beginnings as a trunk maker to European royalty – even as it continues to push for bigger sales in China. Louis Vuitton’s new women’s store at the Shin Kong Place in Beijing, with sections dedicated to luggage, handbags, clothing, shoes and accessories, is seen as a way to highlight among Chinese consumers the brand’s heritage of exclusivity. The Chinese are now the world’s top luxury spenders, making one out of every four luxury purchases globally, according to a report by consulting firm Bain & Company. “With this new store, we would like to take a step further and provide adapted shopping experience and service for our sophisticated clientele,” says Philippe Fortunato, president of Louis Vuitton China. Last year, in the annual China Luxury Study conducted by Bain, the French label fell to second place among Chinese women’s “most desired luxury brands” – after being in the top spot the previous two surveys.
