Louis Vuitton x Kakao Novelty Collection

Just when you thought you had enough of Louis Vuitton’s various collaborations, especially after recent launches with the likes of Fragment, Jeff Koons and Supreme, here’s a really cute one that no fan of the French luxury house should be without.

Not a real collaboration in the sense that there aren’t any RTW, bags or SLGs up for grabs, this collaboration is also only available at LV’s ongoing Volez, Voguez, Voyagez exhibition in Seoul. Fittingly, because it is in Korea, LV hooked up with Kakao Talk and released a couple of adorable novelty pieces that you know you want.

From a pack of 8 stickers (KRW36,000) to large A3 posters (KRW27,000each) featuring various Kakao Talk characters that are frolicking amongst LV’s trunks, there are also embroidered patches (KRW89,000) and embossed luggage tags (KRW245,000 each) for sale, much like the one above that features Ryan with his very own piece of LV luggage.

The bad news? You can only purchase these merchandise after you’ve visited the exhibition which is at Dongdaemun Design Plaza. The good news? You have until 27 August 2017 to make a trip into Seoul if you really want these fun collectibles. Or, beg any colleague/friend/relative who is making the trip soon, because once the exhibition’s over, they won’t be available anywhere anymore.

Louis Vuitton New Bags – Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection – A Homage To Japanese Culture

Louis Vuitton

The Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection is the fashion God’s love of Japan coming to life. Nicolas Ghesquière designed this set of Louis Vuitton new bags with only one thing in mind: japanese art and culture. Never have the flavors of Japan ever colored a range of bags in a captivating manner as Ghesquière’s. And we could not be more jubilant! It is no secret that the master designer is in love with the Japanese culture. It is only fitting that he would dedicate an entire fashion range of Louis Vuitton bags to the mystical island.

On a first look, you would only see a wonderful medley of colors and patterns. But those with an eye for fashion and style would not fail to recognize the wonderful style. It is an unusual, yet captivating charm weaved into these bags. The great fashion house unveiled the Louis Vuitton new bags at Miho museum, an hour’s drive from Tokyo. The collection features the typical Japanese themes such as Samurais, Manga, Kabuki, Obi belts. And, of course, the enchanting Japanese landscape. All were designed by the much-beloved Kansaï Yamamoto, with whom the Louis Vuitton designer has partnered up with.

Here are a few highlights of the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway

  • Louis Vuitton Speedy bags that almost entirely discarded the traditional LV Monogram canvas

If you know your handbags, you would be familiar with the traditional design of Louis Vuitton Speedy bags. That means sparse designs against a canvas of LV Monograms. There were a few Louis Vuitton speedy bags that sported this conventional pattern with Japanese-themed designs. Other bags had completely discarded tradition and done more bold, vivid Japanese patterns. The darker, sober colors of LV were seen to be replaced by the more bold colors of Japan.

  • Peeping eyes bags

This was a stunning new addition to Louis Vuitton’s collections. Yamamoto took a very bold step in adding a pair of huge eyes, peeping form the flaps of the bags. Peeping eyes bags include all kinds of handbags – Speedy bags, Petite Malle Cases, crossbodies and so on. The peeping eyes are characteristic of Japanese drama, which involves exaggerated eye-gestures. The addition of such unusually big eyes was a show-stopper. Perhaps it might have been used in this manner for the first time.

  • Japanese lanterns-inspired Bucket Bags

Nothing reflected Ghesquière’s passion for Japan as much as the Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags. These Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags are designed base on traditional Japanese lanterns, and designed with sober Japanese patterns. One of the Louis Vuitton Bucket Bags also stuck to tradition and sported the conventional LV Monogram canvas.

  • Tradition was not entirely eschewed

How could LV leave behind entirely the typical, chocolate-brown LV Monogram canvas? This is the pattern that is the hallmark of Louis Vuitton bags. The Louis Vuitton new bags range also has plenty of bags, designed as per tradition. The LV Monogram canvas features on every type of bag. That means all the classics: Petite Malle Cases, Speedy Bags, Hat Box Bags, Hobo Bags and so on.

All in all, the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 Runway Bag Collection is a daring new reinvention. This is generally expected from an all new bag collection. Chanel and Dior’s had stunning presentations of their captivating designs. After these Louis Vuitton had to do something to outdo expectations. Besides, it was a fitting tribute to the culture and history of Japan. As Ghesquière himself said, “Every cruise collection is a discovery and it’s a game of integrating the culture of the country we are visiting with a point of view that is very French and Parisian.”

Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring 2018

Louis Vuitton

Kim Jones, the creative director of Louis Vuitton, proved that he is one of the most innovative designers in the industry. With each collection for the luxury French brand, Kim pushes the boundaries of creativity. For the Men’s 2018 Spring Collection, he treated his guests with luxurious pieces perfect for an island visit. A totally bold collection, meant for those who want to spend days at the beach while looking impeccable.

“Every single thing has the DNA of travel put inside it, so you have these really light jackets. They do have to work in the real world and we’re very much about authenticity here. Every man can walk into a Vuitton store and find something for his lifestyle.”- Jones said.

Kim found his inspiration in a book called “Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Not Visited and Never Will”. That stimulated his imagination, so he decided to take his guests on a luxury island adventure.

“Someone gave me the book ‘Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Not Visited and Never Will’. I thought of specific Islands — New Zealand, Easter Island and especially Hawaii — but I was also inspired by the idea of an island and of travel — of moving easily from place to place and experiencing these different pockets of civilization, these different identities simultaneously.”- Kim explained.

The one thing that definitely dominated in the looks was the fun, colorful Hawaiian print. Retro short-sleeved Hawaiian shirts were in the center of the attention. The Aloha shirts were present in many designs. So if Kim says so, obviously these shirts are going to be the next big hit. The Spring 2018 Collection also featured the very popular athleisure style.

“It’s that multicultural, sort of subtropical vibe. I wanted something quite sporty, but I wanted the tailoring to be relaxed and the sportswear to be quite fitted and smart.”

Kim also showed some bold and unexpected choices. He paired socks with men’s strappy sandals, which is not something you see very often on the runways. The extra tight scuba pants were a major surprise as well. Many of the models were dressed in scuba leggings and shorts paired with loose shirts, sweaters, and even coats.

Jones offered a wide variety of accessories. You might think that women are all about bags, but he showed the complete opposite. Amazing male Monogram backpacks, messenger bags, and even luxury belt bags were the most prominent details in some of the looks. Besides the bags, the models were accessorized with cool hats and belts.

The colors that dominated were the shades of the ocean, and several fun shades such as green, coral, and red. For the more serious pieces, Kim chose black, gray, white, brown and olive. Most of the designs have a loose fit, but very well-tailored.

For this collection, Kim changed the recognizable LV letters, with the whole “Louis Vuitton” logo, printed across shirts, coats, and bags. Cool jackets and blazers are an inevitable part of every Louis Vuitton collection. You could notice several trench coats, bomber jackets, and oversized raincoats.

Kim teased his collection a few days before the show. He used his Instagram profile, and the official profile of the brand to share sneak peeks and details of the line. He also thanked the glorious Drake, who recorded a special song, made specifically for the Louis Vuitton show. The collaboration was previously announced, but for some reason, Drake didn’t seem to make it to the show. The single “Signs” played in the background, while the male models strolled the runway.

The venue of choice was the Palais Royal gardens in Paris. The front rows of the show were packed with celebrities. The legendary Naomi Campbell stunned in a Hawaiian print outfit. She shared the first row with the rappers Tyga, Travis Scott, the model Jordan Kale Barrett, designers Virgil Abloh, Stefano Pilati and the British singer Lily Allen, all of them friends of Kim. Celebrities flaunted all Louis Vuitton looks, supporting the work of Jones. Most of them rocked the fabulous exotic print.

Louis Vuitton has a long association with the America’s Cup that dates to the year 1983. The marquee is officially responsible for designing trophies for the coveted Match each year and in doing so it recently unveiled the brand-new Trophy and Trunk for the LV America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs, taking place from Sunday June 4th to Monday June 12th 2017 in Bermuda.


Five challengers including the likes of Land Rover BAR, Emirates Team New Zealand, Artemis Racing, SoftBank Team Japan and Groupama Team France will be battling it out against ORACLE TEAM USA (the ferocious defender and winner of the 34th America’s Cup), to ultimately win the 35th series of the America’s Cup. It is no small task to emerge victorious in a battle so grand, and thus LV has commissioned a new trophy and trunk to mark the supreme achievement. Crafted in 10kg of sterling silver, the new trophy stands tall in its 70-cm frame and is polished and satin-finished to perfection. It also dons the iconic Gaston ‘V’ mark and is an ultimate ode to the heritage and rich standing of the America’s Cup.

A Monogram trunk created especially for the Challenger’s Trophy also carries the famous Gaston ‘V’ in red on its front along with a classic blue microfiber interior and a bunch of other meticulous details. The superior Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs trophy will be awarded to the team that emerges victorious on June 11th or 12th on the Great Sound.
