Louis Vuitton Vendôme Flex

Louis Vuitton introduces the Vendôme Flex collection, three signature staple styles for the men’s wardrobe.

This classic and timeless line includes a Derby shoe, loafer and Chelsea boot, and combines shoemaking expertise with all of today’s needs for comfort and elegance. Each of the three Vendôme Flex styles requires the mastery of expert artisans at the Louis Vuitton shoe workshop in Fiesso d’Artico, Italy. The traditional Goodyear-welted seam has been enhanced with a new flex technique, the result of an extensive reworking of the traditional sole, lining, and upper leather to improve their softness. Special technical materials have also been placed within the insole to provide comfort formerly reserved for sneakers.

Comfort aside, these iconic and timeless shapes exude a modern and relaxed attitude in a contemporary style. The Derby is made from a single piece of waxed calfskin, while the loafer and Chelsea boot feature accents of Louis Vuitton’s emblematic Monogram canvas across the former’s upper, and along the tab of the latter. Crafted in the finest leathers and sublimed by exceptional craftmanship, the three Vendôme Flex styles indulge in a world of supple elegance, breathing independence and freedom with every step.

Louis Vuitton Crafty Collection

Featuring vivid hues and magnified ultra-graphic prints which play with the LV Monogram Giant motif, the LV Crafty collection expertly blends fine craftsmanship and pop style.
Its creations draw inspiration from two artistic movements from the second half of the 20th century: graffiti art and neo-expressionism. During the 1980s these urban, underground trends ventured into new and established creative territories, including New York museums and galleries.

Today, the LV Crafty collection is suffused with this graphic boldness which first adorned the Monogram canvas. The collection revisits a print chosen from the House’s archives and paired with the Monogram Giant motif in black. Available in two colour schemes, cream and red or the more autumnal cream and caramel, LV Crafty appears on the House’s most iconic pieces – Onthego, NéoNoé and Boite Chapeau Souple.

The Monogram Empreinte leather has also embraced the LV Crafty print, adding subtle and elegant touches around the chapes, on the handles and to the accessories, which brighten up and energise the sleek black or white leather.

The collection will make its debut in all Louis Vuitton stores at the end of July, highlighting the House’s wide range of expertise for a full selection of trainers, accessories, ready-to-wear, travel and more to start off the fall season in style.

New Bag Crush for Pre-Fall 2019

This is my new bag crush for Pre-fall 2019 that will be available in stores from August: LOUIS VUITTON‘s Monogram Giant that is twisted with animal prints inspired by the Cruise 2018 collection.

I love this one: Onthego tote in Monogram Giant

The iconic Louis Vuitton Monogram canvas slips into neutral tones, pairing black and caramel or ivory and tobacco. In turns oversized, miniaturised or classic, the House’s iconic Monogram teams up with zebra and leopard prints in a variety of graphic and tonal combinations.

As Zebra prints are trending for F/W 2019, the NéoNoé bucket bag is a great investment piece.

Interpreted with a jungle spirit, the understated Onthego tote, the classic Neverfull and the new NéoNoé bucket bag reveal contrasting facets.

LoL, Sandra

Another piece to dream of: the Neverfull in Monogram Giant
