Another day of winter weather had law enforcement once again responding to wrecks, warning motorists to stay off the roads, and trying to find a little levity with some help from Walt Disney.

Officers with the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office and East Carolina University police staged an arrest of Queen Elsa of Arendelle on ECU’s campus about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Famously known for her snowy role in Disney’s Academy Award-winning animated film “Frozen,” the queen was “apprehended” as she was allegedly attempting to freeze Wright fountain. Officers charged her with being the cause of the area’s frosty weather.

Elsa, played by a 10-year-old friend of the sheriff’s office, was transported to the Pitt County Courthouse, where she stood before a judge. Sheriff Neil Elks pleaded that the ice queen be forced to leave the county. A county judge ruled that Elsa could be released as long as she fled the state, lifting her icy influence.

In addition to the fictional figure’s arrest, sheriff’s deputies had been updating residents about road conditions and other weather-related issues through its Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Deputies patrolling rural roads throughout the county were posting photos along their routes.

Jones has overseen the design on several Louis Vuitton Outlet impressive men's accessories collections over the past few seasons, but in the past, the emphasis has generally been on leather or Damier, Vuitton's less flashy signature print. This collection does feature a new take on Damier Graphite, one with graphic rope detailing that Louis Vuitton Handbags pays tribute to late designer and artist Christopher Nemeth. The unexpected star of the handbag show is monogram, though, and it makes its appearance in fairly straightforward ways: simply shaped bags and accessories that, on first glance, appear quite similar to bags Vuitton has made for decades. Many have contrasting trim or edge paint, though, and some come with collection-specific zipper pulls. Check out all the accessory photos below; you can expect these bags to hit stores in about six months. I was thinking about brands that are popular but that I don’t cover that much anymore, and Louis Vuitton came to mind. Like many others, my first high-end designer bag was from the brand, and it was the tiny Wapity Clutch (which I still own and still adore). Louis Vuitton Luggage Over the years, I picked up a few limited edition pieces, but I started to pull away from the brand and toward others. Louis Vuitton is most known for its monogram canvas, and while it has tried to distance itself from some of its most popular bags, it seems the people have spoken and Monogram may be making a comeback for the brand in a decidedly up-market way. The first monogram bag I’ve liked from the brand in quite a while is the Louis Vuitton Pallas. The majority of the Pallas bag is the Monogram canvas, but the interior of the bag has colored calf leather peeking out, giving it a very distinctive look. There’s a smaller crossbody version, the Pallas BB, which is, of course, the version I like best. The interior is more luxe than other LV bags, Louis Vuitton Shoes with microfiber lining. The price is also much higher, which seems to be the norm for LV in general now. There isn’t much more to this bag; it’s a great size, it has an adjustable shoulder strap, and it’s all about the Monogram. It's amazing how quickly Nicolas Ghesquiere has changed the aesthetic at Louis Vuitton. It's one thing to come in to a globally recognized brand after the decade-and-a-half tenure of a legend like Marc Jacobs and put together your own collection with your own quirks; it's quite another to do that in a way that the industry buys into whole-heartedly, as it seems to with Ghesquiere's Vuitton. Ghesquiere has already Louis Vuitton Sunglasses established the core of his handbag line, and that's mainly what you'll find in these lookbook images of Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2015, alongside a couple of 70s-style refreshes on the iconic Alma. The bags are good in the way that Ghesquiere has been good all along--they're casual and true to the brand, but they feel nothing at all like what came before them during the Jacobs era.

Another first: A red and black monogram Louis Vuitton Outlet print, as well as soft-sided versions of the Petite-Malle bag that was introduced with Ghesquiere's first collection. Overall, there was plenty to look forward to.Here's Rihanna, heading to dinner at Nobu in Tribeca on a particularly blustery night in NYC. She's carrying the Louis Vuitton x Frank Gehry Twisted Box Monogram Bag, which retails for $4,400 in select Vuitton stores as part of the brand's "Celebrating Monogram" collaboration with six fashion and design luminaries. (The asymmetrical shape of this bag is intentional, it hasn't been slightly Louis Vuitton Sunglasses smashed by Ri-Ri.) You can get a better look at the complete collection here, and read more about it on the brand's website. "Celebrating Monogram" is a varied and at times slightly bizarre collection, but it does feature several other notable contributions from Karl Lagerfeld, photographer Cindy Sherman, and design guru Mark Newson. The Louis Vuitton Taurillon Backpack (named for the type of leather it uses) is a small piece of the masculine-luxury look that Jones has built, but it’s a good representative for the vibe that permeates much of the brand’s men’s bags. It’s luxurious and simple; minimal, but not in an architecturally Louis Vuitton Luggage aggressive way. It has a traditionalism to it, and the design is well-edited enough that it doesn’t make men who don’t want to carry a purse feel like that’s what they’re doing. Nicolas Ghesquiere is onto his second major season of agenda-setting at the new Louis Vuitton, and his dreamy-mod vision of 70s nostalgia has returned for the Louis Vuitton Spring 2015 ad campaign. Ghesquiere started revealing the photos, lensed by Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber and Juergen Teller (just like last season) on his personal Instagram account at the end of last year, and now the brand itself has added a few more official ads to the lineup. The Louis Vuitton Shoes ads feature a couple of the same models from Fall 2014, including Freja Beha Erichsen, plus the addition of actress Jennifer Connelly. Connelly has been a fixture at Vuitton events and in the brand's clothes since Ghesquiere took the brand's helm, so her spot in the ads feels natural. Check out what Ghesquiere and Vuitton have released so far below; these photos should start popping up in fashion magazines soon. Nicolas Ghesquiere wasted no time in putting his own stamp on the iconic codes of Louis Vuitton, and the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2015 collection is the latest continuation in his reimagining of the monograms and materials that we all know and (maybe) love. The collection just hit stores and Vuitton's online boutique, and if you're not a logo lover, there's plenty for you here. Relatively few of these seasonal bags are made with monogram canvas, and many of them lack external branding at all. Instead, Ghesquiere's Louis Vuitton Wallets accessories team has let Vuitton's ultra-recognizable materials and shapes speak for themselves. With a brand that has such great recognition among consumers, there's no need to belabor the point, and these bags largely avoid doing that. Perhaps more importantly, they mostly seem like the kinds of pieces that would be a lot of fun to buy and use. Check out the collection below, complete with prices. The only thing missing is the Pinch bag; it's slated to be released soon, but there's no information available on the brand's website yet.

This price information comes to us Louis Vuitton Outlet via ILVoeLV.com, which is a reliable source of intel on Vuitton’s machinations, especially when it comes to handbags. The bag includes two finishes of croc and measures slightly over a foot wide at its largest point. There’s no word on how many of these bags will be made, but it’s likely to be an extremely limited piece. After all, only so many people can afford to buy a bag that costs more than 50 grand in the first place. On top of that, the bag has a, uh, very specific aesthetic. Most bags in this price range are simply exotic recreations of designs that the buying public has already embraced with open arms, like the Givenchy Antigona or Fendi 2Jours, but this Louis Vuitton Luggage one is an untested bag shape from new creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere’s first collection for the brand. The bag is easily more expensive than any of the other seasonal offerings we found online for Fall 2014, although I’d be shocked if it were made available via Vuitton’s website. Here's Nicky Hilton, headed to lunch at The Smile in downtown Manhattan, carrying a Louis Vuitton Trompe L'oeil Trocadero Bag, which, according to our research, seems to date all the way back to Fall 2006. I'd like to think she pulled this one out of the archives just for us. In any case, this Trocadero looks great with her simple little black dress and eye-popping animal print sandals. Nicky has two truly splendid editions of "The Many Bags" (which you can view here and here), Louis Vuitton Wallets but I don't think we saw this particular Louis Vuitton bag in either one of them. Which begs the question: is Nicky holding out on us?! Oh, what we wouldn't do in exchange for a full guided tour of her handbag stash. (Are you listening, Nicky? Let's make this happen.) It was rumored from the beginning that Lagerfeld, perhaps the project's most surprising participant, would make a punching bag, and not only that, but it'll come in three sizes, hang with handbag-like straps on its included stand and also function as a regular handbag. For more serious training, a full-size punching bag and storage trunk, both covered in monogram canvas, are Louis Vuitton Sunglasses also available for an undisclosed price. To finish out the theme, a set of boxing gloves and their weekender-like case are also part of Lagerfeld's capsule collection. Louboutin and Sherman went in particularly colorful directions with their contributions, while Kawakubo was as weird as you'd expect her to be and Gehry was duly architectural. Newson's fleece-paneled backpacks were easily the most wearable of bags in the collection, a sensibility that should serve him well at his new employer: Apple. If you didn't like the Twist Bag that Ghesquiere debuted for Resort 2015, your feelings might be less enthusiastic. Although its raised, tubular LV logo still feels clunky to me, everything else about the bag is pretty good. Perhaps more importantly, it doesn't feel like something Marc Louis Vuitton Shoes Jacobs would have made, and that's vital for a brand looking for a new direction and new excitement. A particularly interesting series of Twist bags were made of Epi leather with significant color variation, which is a first for one of the brand's most popular materials.

A couple weeks ago, Vlad and I were in louis vuitton outlet Texas for SXSW and attended the conference’s panel on Global Digital Trends for the Luxury Consumer. It wasn’t a fashion-specific panel, but during the talk, one of the presenters mentioned a recent Business Insider article about consumer perceptions of Louis Vuitton in China. According to one expert who spoke with BI, top-tier consumer tastes are shifting away from the French luxury giant. Monogram bags may wax and wane with customers, Louis Vuitton Shoes but they'll always be a huge part of many brands' sales. Monograms easily identify brands to onlookers, and many customers first find their way to love designers by recognizing the monogram; it's an easy association. I was one of these people: my first Coach bag was monogram, and my first Louis Vuitton was as well. At Louis Vuitton, handbags are king. The brand might now make full lines of ready-to-wear, outerwear, shoes, accessories and jewelry, but if the bags are selling, none of that other stuff really matters. With the new bags that debuted as part of the brand's Fall 2015 collection this morning, that shouldn't be a problem.The Louis Vuitton Monogram Infrarouge is the latest interpretation of the LV monogram, which features a black background with a rouge Louis Vuitton Luggage LV monogram print. There have been so many interpretations of the Monogram canvas, but this option feels bold and new. Louis Vuitton Monogram Infrarouge was first spotted on the Spring 2015 runway, and while I vaguely remembered it, I rediscovered it this past week and fell for it. The bold black and red variation looks stunning on the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle, which has become a fan favorite. There are two other bags currently available in the print, but if I had it my way, I'd get the Petite Malle in Monogram Infrarouge and call it a day. Prices range from $3,550 to $3,950 via Louis Vuitton. While there isn’t a set date for this increase, Louis Vuitton Wallets many sales associates have told shoppers to expect the price hike around middle of February to early March. Similar to Hermès, the expected price increase is 6%-10%. In 2014, there was only one price increase for Louis Vuitton, but in years prior, there had always two increases per year. This is why some shoppers discussing this issue on the PurseForum are worried about the upcoming increase–the length of time since the last one may mean that they’re in for a bigger hike than usual. While we all sit under a blizzard in New York, a lot has been happening in Paris. Couture shows just started, and immediately before them, the world's biggest menswear brands opened the Fall 2015 show season. One of the last shows on the schedule was Louis Vuitton, and under the guidance of men's creative director Kim Jones, the brand's iconic monogram canvas has made a comeback. Historically, “discreet” hasn’t often been a word used to Louis Vuitton Sunglasses describe Louis Vuitton bags, but times are a-changing at the French leather goods powerhouse. Several seasons before Nicolas Ghesquiere was brought in to helm the women’s side of the company, Kim Jones was hired to oversee the men’s side of things; his contribution to the brand’s legacy has already been tremendous.

There's no doubt about it: Nicolas Louis Vuitton Outlet Ghesquiere knows exactly what he's up to at Louis Vuitton. The designer sent his second major collection for the brand down his Paris runway yesterday morning, and the results felt like a strong continuation on what he's built so far. On top of that, a lot of the bags were quite good. The Louis Vuitton Icon and Iconoclasts Collection turned a lot of heads when it was announced, mostly because of the perennially bold-faced names from the worlds of fashion and design that had signed on to participate. Louis Vuitton tasked fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, Louis Vuitton Luggage Christian Louboutin, Rei Kawakubo, as well as architect Frank Gehry, photographer Cindy Sherman and industrial designer Mark Newson with creating artful fashion pieces using the brand's signature monogram print, and now we know what each of them did with the challenge. Just when we thought we’d found all the mind-bending price information we could handle for the upcoming season, Louis Vuitton has gone and reminded us that one of the many internal changes it’s making is adding more high-priced exotic bags to its selection. Louis Vuitton Wallets The Louis Vuitton Crocodile Lady Bag PM, which made its public debut in the brand’s Fall 2014 runway show, will retail for a staggering $54,500. I’ve got a Monday morning confession for you guys: I listen to too much Drake. Arguably, any Drake is “too much Drake,” but I probably listen to too much, even by lenient standards. We all have our crosses to bear. In one song that comes up often on my iPod (“Up All Night,” if you’d like to Google it and then judge me accordingly), rapper Nicki Minaj makes a guest appearance in which she speaks of giving Lil Wayne the “Louis Presidential Briefcase.” If she’s speaking of the Louis Vuitton Président Classeur Briefcase, Ms. Minaj clearly has fine taste. The Président Classeur is, like a Birkin, a bag that’s really in-your-face about being expensive and made of fine materials without being logo-ridden or otherwise obvious. It’s discreet, in a way, but in other ways, totally not discreet–you can tell it costs a zillion dollars from 20 paces, even if Louis Vuitton Sunglasses you’re not someone who’s well-versed in luxury goods. It’s the perfect status-symbol accessory for men (unless you count watches, which we don’t, because this is not the place for watches). Here's actress Emma Roberts, leaving the salon in West Hollywood with some fresh blonde locks and a Louis Vuitton Monogram Montsouris Backpack. This particular model of backpack is no longer made, and judging by the patina on this one's leather trim, I'm guessing Emma picked it up as a vintage piece. In case you weren't aware, you can now shop a vast assortment of vintage Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Fendi and Gucci bags and accessories at ShopBop. Emma Roberts has one of those Hollywood careers that perplexes me greatly. She's never been in anything wildly successful; in fact her biggest earners might've been the PG flicks she first appeared in way back in 2006-2007. Louis Vuitton Shoes And yet, her star never seems to falter, regardless of whether or not she's actually appearing in films. (I had the same thoughts recently about Rachel McAdams.) Anyways, Emma's been around long enough to amass an impressive designer handbag collection, which you can peruse at your leisure here.

Over the past several seasons, Coach has undergone a Tiffany Outlet transformation with Stuart Vevers at the helm while still keeping true to the core elements of the brand, and if you ask me, the brand has done a fabulous job. Coach's latest new bag has everyone buzzing, and not just because it's a good bag--there's also brilliant campaign behind it. Welcome the Coach Swagger, which comes in several sizes and plenty of colors. It's a design that's both beautiful and super cool in its aesthetic, and you can customize an image of your very own Swagger. Coach recently introduced its #whatsyourswagger campaign, the goal of which is for the wearer to make her Tiffany And Co Outlet Swagger truly her own. Maybe your bag is filled to the brim with work supplies, baby food and toys or vacation essentials; whatever the case may be, your bag is yours and yours alone, and Coach wants to embrace that. A handbag is an emotional purchase, so when you pick a bag you love, it has to work with who you are and your life. We partnered with Coach to showcase our swagger, and since my life is filled with so many different facets, I showed off three different types for the Coach #whatsyourswagger campaign. While Rambourg and the Business Insider article didn’t expand on whether or not this trend is reflected in other global markets, China is an important consideration for all global brands that hope to grow–Euromoniter’s most recent rankings put it as the 5th largest Tiffany Rings luxury market in the world, and although the Chinese market has slowed this year, global consulting firm Bain & Company still expect the nation’s important rising consumer class to double by 2017. Since Nicolas Ghesquière took the helm at Louis Vuitton, there have been some major, stand-out handbag moments for the brand. The Petite Malle, while quite expensive, has grown a major fan following along with other designs. Recently I shared the Monogram Infrarouge, a new black and red twist on the classic Monogram, and if you ask us, the Fall 2015 collection is Tiffany Necklaces filled with the best bags from the brand in recent memory. It looks like the sticker trend we've seen from Anya Hindmarch and other brands is something Ghesquière likes as well. The new Louis Vuitton sticker pattern brings a new edge to the Monogram Vernis leather. The feel of the pattern is very retro-contemporary, with vintage-feeling stickers on white glossy Vernis leather. The stickers include the Petite Malle Bag, as well as lipstick, nail polish, headphones, cars, and salt and pepper shakers. Each sticker has a vintage feel and gives a very old school look to classic LV designs. The Louis Vuitton Sticker Collection comes in a variety of items, including scarves, but as far as the handbags go, it's available in the Alma PM, Alma BB, Petite Malle and Tiffany Bangle Pochette Accessoires. Because the pattern looks busier on the larger PM version, I think BB gives the right amount of print against the black and white Vernis. Prices range from $910 to $5,500 via Louis Vuitton.

However, it’s worth noting that some sales Moncler Outlet associates are telling their customers they know nothing of a price increase, and that if there is one, it likely won’t happen until spring. Typically, stores and their associates are not made aware of the date of the increase until a couple weeks before it happens, and that news hits the shoppers and our PurseForum right after. We’ll let you know if we hear more, but if you have been eying a Louis Vuitton piece, you might want to get it now–even if the rumors about a February increase end up being bogus, it surely won’t be long until prices do go up. Many of the new Moncler Outlet shapes in this collection were petite trunks, some of which were customizable; they looked like they'd be perfect home decor objects instead of something that someone might actually carry. Vuitton's ardent fans have long collected the brand's trunks to display in their homes, and these smaller, non-monogram versions would be perfect for that. I can see the Instagrams now. The functional bags were also a treat. Most of them felt fresh and young without sacrificing the sophistication for which Nicolas Ghesquiere is known, and although the stone-studded Moncler Mens Coats ones were a little challenging for my taste, the rest of the group more than made up for it. A particular favorite was the white Alma, stamped with a big version of the brand's logo--somehow, it felt worlds away from the logo bags for which the brand is known. When it's still this cold at the end of March, it's impossible not to start thinking about travel to places on the globe where we can get some relief. In that sense, the Louis Vuitton The Spirit of Travel Spring 2015 campaign is perfectly timed--who wouldn't Moncler Mens Jackets want to look at images of models, beautiful bags in hand, frolicking in front of perfectly turquoise seas in the French West Indes? Models Liya Kebede, Julia Nobis and Maartje Verhoef were photographed by Patrick Demarchelier against the impossibly gorgeous background of St. Barths with the Alma Bag, Twist Bag and dozens of Vuitton's famed trunks, rendered in bright shades of the brand's durable Epi leather. We recommend immediate consumption of these images, if only to remind yourself that warmth Moncler Womens Coats is indeed possible. You can shop the Alma featured in the ads in 17 different colors of Epi leather via Louis Vuitton for $2,120. The Twist Bag, on the other hand, starts at $3,250 in Epi via Louis Vuitton. Ewan Rambourg, author of The Bling Dynasty: Why the Reign of Chinese Luxury Shoppers Has Only Just Begun, claims China’s elite are increasingly interested in a more subtle version of luxury, and the perception in the market is that Vuitton can’t provide it. Rambourg says China’s luxury consumers are turning toward more expensive brands and bespoke goods, with less focus on logos and more focus on the quality of the product. One quote in particular has been a subject of hot debate on our PurseForum: many Chinese consumers think, “I can’t buy Vuitton, I’ve seen it too much, it’s a Moncler Womens Jackets brand for secretaries.”

Check out all the accessory photos below; you can expect these bags to hit stores in about six months. I was thinking about brands that are popular but that I don’t cover that much anymore, and Louis Vuitton came to mind. Like many others, my first high-end designer bag was from the brand, and it was the tiny Wapity Clutch (which I still own and still adore). Louis Vuitton Luggage Over the years, I picked up a few limited edition pieces, but I started to pull away from the brand and toward others. Louis Vuitton is most known for its monogram canvas, and while it has tried to distance itself from some of its most popular bags, it seems the people have spoken and Monogram may be making a comeback for the brand in a decidedly up-market way. The first monogram bag I’ve liked from the brand in quite a while is the Louis Vuitton Pallas. The majority of the Pallas bag is the Monogram canvas, but the interior of the bag has colored calf leather peeking out, giving it a very distinctive look. There’s a smaller crossbody version, the Pallas BB, which is, of course, the version I like best. The interior is more luxe than other LV bags, Louis Vuitton Shoes with microfiber lining. The price is also much higher, which seems to be the norm for LV in general now. There isn’t much more to this bag; it’s a great size, it has an adjustable shoulder strap, and it’s all about the Monogram. It's amazing how quickly Nicolas Ghesquiere has changed the aesthetic at Louis Vuitton. It's one thing to come in to a globally recognized brand after the decade-and-a-half tenure of a legend like Marc Jacobs and put together your own collection with your own quirks; it's quite another to do that in a way that the industry buys into whole-heartedly, as it seems to with Ghesquiere's Vuitton. Ghesquiere has already Louis Vuitton Sunglasses established the core of his handbag line, and that's mainly what you'll find in these lookbook images of Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2015, alongside a couple of 70s-style refreshes on the iconic Alma. The bags are good in the way that Ghesquiere has been good all along--they're casual and true to the brand, but they feel nothing at all like what came before them during the Jacobs era.

A couple weeks ago, Vlad and I were in louis vuitton outlet Texas for SXSW and attended the conference’s panel on Global Digital Trends for the Luxury Consumer. It wasn’t a fashion-specific panel, but during the talk, one of the presenters mentioned a recent Business Insider article about consumer perceptions of Louis Vuitton in China. According to one expert who spoke with BI, top-tier consumer tastes are shifting away from the French luxury giant. Monogram bags may wax and wane with customers, Louis Vuitton Shoes but they'll always be a huge part of many brands' sales. Monograms easily identify brands to onlookers, and many customers first find their way to love designers by recognizing the monogram; it's an easy association. I was one of these people: my first Coach bag was monogram, and my first Louis Vuitton was as well. At Louis Vuitton, handbags are king. The brand might now make full lines of ready-to-wear, outerwear, shoes, accessories and jewelry, but if the bags are selling, none of that other stuff really matters. With the new bags that debuted as part of the brand's Fall 2015 collection this morning, that shouldn't be a problem.The Louis Vuitton Monogram Infrarouge is the latest interpretation of the LV monogram, which features a black background with a rouge Louis Vuitton Luggage LV monogram print. There have been so many interpretations of the Monogram canvas, but this option feels bold and new. Louis Vuitton Monogram Infrarouge was first spotted on the Spring 2015 runway, and while I vaguely remembered it, I rediscovered it this past week and fell for it. The bold black and red variation looks stunning on the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle, which has become a fan favorite. There are two other bags currently available in the print, but if I had it my way, I'd get the Petite Malle in Monogram Infrarouge and call it a day. Prices range from $3,550 to $3,950 via Louis Vuitton. While there isn’t a set date for this increase, Louis Vuitton Wallets many sales associates have told shoppers to expect the price hike around middle of February to early March. Similar to Hermès, the expected price increase is 6%-10%. In 2014, there was only one price increase for Louis Vuitton, but in years prior, there had always two increases per year. This is why some shoppers discussing this issue on the PurseForum are worried about the upcoming increase–the length of time since the last one may mean that they’re in for a bigger hike than usual. While we all sit under a blizzard in New York, a lot has been happening in Paris. Couture shows just started, and immediately before them, the world's biggest menswear brands opened the Fall 2015 show season. One of the last shows on the schedule was Louis Vuitton, and under the guidance of men's creative director Kim Jones, the brand's iconic monogram canvas has made a comeback. Historically, “discreet” hasn’t often been a word used to Louis Vuitton Sunglasses describe Louis Vuitton bags, but times are a-changing at the French leather goods powerhouse. Several seasons before Nicolas Ghesquiere was brought in to helm the women’s side of the company, Kim Jones was hired to oversee the men’s side of things; his contribution to the brand’s legacy has already been tremendous.

Over the past several seasons, Coach has undergone a Tiffany Outlet transformation with Stuart Vevers at the helm while still keeping true to the core elements of the brand, and if you ask me, the brand has done a fabulous job. Coach's latest new bag has everyone buzzing, and not just because it's a good bag--there's also brilliant campaign behind it. Welcome the Coach Swagger, which comes in several sizes and plenty of colors. It's a design that's both beautiful and super cool in its aesthetic, and you can customize an image of your very own Swagger. Coach recently introduced its #whatsyourswagger campaign, the goal of which is for the wearer to make her Tiffany And Co Outlet Swagger truly her own. Maybe your bag is filled to the brim with work supplies, baby food and toys or vacation essentials; whatever the case may be, your bag is yours and yours alone, and Coach wants to embrace that. A handbag is an emotional purchase, so when you pick a bag you love, it has to work with who you are and your life. We partnered with Coach to showcase our swagger, and since my life is filled with so many different facets, I showed off three different types for the Coach #whatsyourswagger campaign. While Rambourg and the Business Insider article didn’t expand on whether or not this trend is reflected in other global markets, China is an important consideration for all global brands that hope to grow–Euromoniter’s most recent rankings put it as the 5th largest Tiffany Rings luxury market in the world, and although the Chinese market has slowed this year, global consulting firm Bain & Company still expect the nation’s important rising consumer class to double by 2017. Since Nicolas Ghesquière took the helm at Louis Vuitton, there have been some major, stand-out handbag moments for the brand. The Petite Malle, while quite expensive, has grown a major fan following along with other designs. Recently I shared the Monogram Infrarouge, a new black and red twist on the classic Monogram, and if you ask us, the Fall 2015 collection is Tiffany Necklaces filled with the best bags from the brand in recent memory. It looks like the sticker trend we've seen from Anya Hindmarch and other brands is something Ghesquière likes as well. The new Louis Vuitton sticker pattern brings a new edge to the Monogram Vernis leather. The feel of the pattern is very retro-contemporary, with vintage-feeling stickers on white glossy Vernis leather. The stickers include the Petite Malle Bag, as well as lipstick, nail polish, headphones, cars, and salt and pepper shakers. Each sticker has a vintage feel and gives a very old school look to classic LV designs. The Louis Vuitton Sticker Collection comes in a variety of items, including scarves, but as far as the handbags go, it's available in the Alma PM, Alma BB, Petite Malle and Tiffany Bangle Pochette Accessoires. Because the pattern looks busier on the larger PM version, I think BB gives the right amount of print against the black and white Vernis. Prices range from $910 to $5,500 via Louis Vuitton.

Jones has overseen the design on several Louis Vuitton Outlet impressive men's accessories collections over the past few seasons, but in the past, the emphasis has generally been on leather or Damier, Vuitton's less flashy signature print. This collection does feature a new take on Damier Graphite, one with graphic rope detailing that Louis Vuitton Handbags pays tribute to late designer and artist Christopher Nemeth. The unexpected star of the handbag show is monogram, though, and it makes its appearance in fairly straightforward ways: simply shaped bags and accessories that, on first glance, appear quite similar to bags Vuitton has made for decades.

However, it’s worth noting that some sales Moncler Outlet associates are telling their customers they know nothing of a price increase, and that if there is one, it likely won’t happen until spring. Typically, stores and their associates are not made aware of the date of the increase until a couple weeks before it happens, and that news hits the shoppers and our PurseForum right after. We’ll let you know if we hear more, but if you have been eying a Louis Vuitton piece, you might want to get it now–even if the rumors about a February increase end up being bogus, it surely won’t be long until prices do go up. Many of the new Moncler Outlet shapes in this collection were petite trunks, some of which were customizable; they looked like they'd be perfect home decor objects instead of something that someone might actually carry. Vuitton's ardent fans have long collected the brand's trunks to display in their homes, and these smaller, non-monogram versions would be perfect for that. I can see the Instagrams now. The functional bags were also a treat. Most of them felt fresh and young without sacrificing the sophistication for which Nicolas Ghesquiere is known, and although the stone-studded Moncler Mens Coats ones were a little challenging for my taste, the rest of the group more than made up for it. A particular favorite was the white Alma, stamped with a big version of the brand's logo--somehow, it felt worlds away from the logo bags for which the brand is known. When it's still this cold at the end of March, it's impossible not to start thinking about travel to places on the globe where we can get some relief. In that sense, the Louis Vuitton The Spirit of Travel Spring 2015 campaign is perfectly timed--who wouldn't Moncler Mens Jackets want to look at images of models, beautiful bags in hand, frolicking in front of perfectly turquoise seas in the French West Indes? Models Liya Kebede, Julia Nobis and Maartje Verhoef were photographed by Patrick Demarchelier against the impossibly gorgeous background of St. Barths with the Alma Bag, Twist Bag and dozens of Vuitton's famed trunks, rendered in bright shades of the brand's durable Epi leather. We recommend immediate consumption of these images, if only to remind yourself that warmth Moncler Womens Coats is indeed possible. You can shop the Alma featured in the ads in 17 different colors of Epi leather via Louis Vuitton for $2,120. The Twist Bag, on the other hand, starts at $3,250 in Epi via Louis Vuitton. Ewan Rambourg, author of The Bling Dynasty: Why the Reign of Chinese Luxury Shoppers Has Only Just Begun, claims China’s elite are increasingly interested in a more subtle version of luxury, and the perception in the market is that Vuitton can’t provide it. Rambourg says China’s luxury consumers are turning toward more expensive brands and bespoke goods, with less focus on logos and more focus on the quality of the product. One quote in particular has been a subject of hot debate on our PurseForum: many Chinese consumers think, “I can’t buy Vuitton, I’ve seen it too much, it’s a Moncler Womens Jackets brand for secretaries.”
