The controversial ad showed a photo of a seamstress stitching the handle of a handbag, with the text reading: ‘The seamstress with linen thread and beeswax. The underthings that underpin M&S profits ‘A needle, linen thread, beeswax and infinite patience protect each over-stitch from humidity and the passage of time. ‘One could say that a Louis Vuitton bag is a collection of details. But with so much attention lavished on every one, should we only call them details?’ A second ad showed a woman making a wallet, with the text stating: ‘The young woman and the tiny folds. In everything from Louis Vuitton, there are elements that cannot be fully explained. ‘ ‘What secret little gestures do our craftsmen discretely pass on? How do we blend innate skill and inherent prowess? ‘Or how can five tiny folds lengthen the life of a wallet?

Louis Vuitton Prize Giving Gala at the Fairmont
Jones level of bouncing-off-the-walls enthusiasm is, sadly, not standard. Theres no grandeur to Jones, no world-weariness, no faux boredom nullifying the effort behind his work. He says love a lot: he loves his job, he loves selling clothes, he loves the opportunities that Louis Vuitton provides him with as a designer. And those opportunities are, it seems, endless as endless, perhaps, as Louis Vuittons pockets are bottomless. Barely two years into his tenure at the house, Kim Jones has designed cashmere-neoprene wetsuits, a buttery kidskin life-jacket, and done just about anything that can be done to crocodile. For autumn/winter he created a fox-fur coat with leopard spots laser-etched into the pelt; for next spring, silk was woven with minute strips of mother-of-pearl in the LV logo to create an iridescent monogrammed tuxedo. It will cost around 68,000. But for all that abundance, Louis Vuitton is, in Kim Jones own words, a travel company. That might sound a little like Thomson Holidays, but Jones means that the root of the brand remains in travel. The original Monsieur Louis Vuitton started business as luggage-maker and packer to Empress Eugenie in 1854, when copious clothes and the girth of the crinoline required an artful hand and extensive luggage for any kind of trip.
From girl-next-door to smouldering Louis Vuitton model: Behind the scenes of Michelle Williams’ first fashion campaign
“Industry experts believe that a good portion of fashion is more inspired by the street today than the runway,” Julian added. “With so much available to us via technology, Web, 24/7, the most ingenious ideas get expressed from the street then get transferred to the deluxe avenue.” Julian spotted many artists at the menswear trade shows for Spring 2014 in New York this past summer. They were there to decorate the venues with their art as well as partner with brands. Celebrity fashion stylist Phillip Bloch has seen this trend in action, but notes that it’s nothing new. “Fashion a lot of times comes from the street,” he said in a phone interview. The Metropolitan Museum of Art displayed through last month a punk fashion exhibit that has been featured in Vogue magazine. Bloch noted that many designers also showed punk-inspired pieces in their fall 2013 fashion shows. Fresh inspiration is the lifeblood of fashion. “Especially in the creative worlds, it’s necessary for survival,” Bloch said.
