Louis Vuitton Launching Letter Writing Collection


French luxury brand Louis Vuitton is to open ‘Cabinet d’Ecriture’ pop-up store in Paris this December with a focus on luxury writing instruments and paper products. The new 750-square-foot (70 square meter) shop will be decorated with antique desks, and original Louis Vuitton book trunks. Customers will be able to indulge in a range of writing instruments including luxury pencils and pens (ballpoint, pencil, fountain and roller), leather notebook holders, writing sets, and other paper products. While Vuitton has created pens since the 1980s, the new expanded range is both wider in scope and more luxurious.

Andrew Lewicki knows that people have gotten used to seeing luxury brands extend their influence into other industries. From bicycles to tennis, rugby, football and golf balls, not to mention every kind of object and gadget, luxury brands have left their stamp on a multitude of products. This time, fashionistas who are already dreaming of soft, yummy, branded waffles in the morning will have to wait, as this branded waffle maker is not for sale. It is a piece of art, a sculpture by Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Lewicki whose imagery often plays with the paradoxes of modern life.

“Larger Than Life” Series for Louis Vuitton.


Luxury brand Louis Vuitton recently partnered with Paris-based photographer Vincent Bousserez to create this whimsical set of photos. Bousserez thought up an innovative way to emphasize the luxury brand’s product features like zippers, clasps, buckles and detailed stitching. With “Larger than Life,” the photographer created a series where miniature people are seen polishing sunglasses, climbing up onto bag zippers, or playing golf under the LV logo. As Louis Vuitton states, it’s “a fantasy daily life where golf players enjoy a night session on a monogram course or a couple who walk down a quite unexpected aisle.”

The New Louis Vuitton Ad Featuring Muhammad Ali.


Boxing legend Muhammad Ali will be featured in the new Louis Vuitton print ad launching on June 14th in 60 countries.  The ad was shot by Annie Leibovitz in Muhammad’s Phoenix home and features Ali and his little grandson wearing boxing gloves and sticking his chest out.  Mr. Ali now joins other icons who have posed for Louis Vuitton like Mikhail Gorbachev, soccer great Pelé, musician Keith Richards, Sean Connery, Bono, Francis Ford Coppola with his daughter Sofia, and former astronaut Buzz Aldrin.  Last year, Leibowitz shot Angelina Jolie on a wooden boat in Cambodia’s Siem Reap Province for the campaign.

Louis Vuitton Board Games.


Louis Vuitton presents “All Aboard Games,” a video created by “Ill Studio”, that takes the viewer on a “fantastic and surrealist voyage inside a Louis Vuitton game case.”  All of the iconic game symbols that the French brand have been using since 1888 are featured in this colorful piece. Chess, checkers, cards, dominoes, roulette, etc…  The film was released onto LV’s online magazine New, Now and falls in line with their trend towards promoting the vintage lifestyle and the brands historical roots.
