Louis Vuitton FireBird

The LV Jokes Bags was sold out, the Pochette Bonbon Rose purse is the recent popular topic among handbag blogs, What’s next? How about this Firebird bag? These bags are all in the Summer 08 collection and designed by Marc Jacobs together with the American artist, Richard Prince. If you asked me whether I love the new Firebird bag, I would tell you I don’t know. But I found that people are very crazy for this baby. I really admire Marc Jacobs for taking the bold to make changes, adding value to this luxury brand and keeping LV brand vibrant. No doubt why he becomes so famous.

The velvet trimmed Firebird, featuring LV classic monogram, is big! Dimensions are 16.1″ x 14.1″ x 3.5″. The new shape, the creative design and the color combination really make this bag alluring and special. But the price is stunning, too! Is it worth $5400? Well…the fact that it is currently out of stock online should give you the answer.

Kate Bosworth with her Chloé Shoulder Bag


Los Angeles

London

Kate Bosworth, the “Superman Returns” girl, was spotted in both LA and London, wearing the same outfit during the last two days. I am totally attracted by her bag, so I try to find out more about it. So far, the only thing I know is that it is a Chloé shoulder bag, but I find a similar bag on Net-A-Porter. Although this is not exactly the same as Kate’s bag, they are from the same collection of Chloé. The Apricot Saskia patchwork pouch has buckle detailing, a logo plaque, a small zip at front, magnetic studs closure and is fully lined. If you want to see this summer collection, check it out at Chloé offical web site.

Louis Vuitton Tahitienne GM

Last week, I wrote about the LV new print – “Monogramoflauge” and from our vote result, it shows that, among a dozen of people, 9 out of them do not like the new pattern. I wonder if the result will relfect the reality? But I am still very excited to see a “Monogramoflauge” bag! I think sometimes we need to make changes to make our lives fun and exciting. The classic LV Monogram is fabulous but something new like the Tahitenne GM is also marvelous! The Tahitenne canvas with LV Monogram bag is inspired by the catalogue published in 1924. It has adjustable leather handles, golden hardware, inside zip pocket and protective studs at base. This LV bag measuring 8.3″ x 13.8″ x 20.8″ is great for picnic day or beach day.  The $1160 bag comes in 3 other colors (menthe, sandy and lilac) but pink is my first choice. Currently, it’s not available online, call your local LV store for detail.
