In the Reflection of the Lens

In this short film directed by KT Auleta and shot in Los Angeles, Louis Vuitton presents the Spring/Summer Sunglasses collection for women. Behind the wheel, the collection is presented in the rear vision mirror of the car navigating different landscapes. Certain models in this collection take their inspiration from the iconic Louis Vuitton trunks and the engraved plates on the temples and metallic studs remind us of these codes.

This film is complimentary to the menswear sunglasses film also shot in Los Angeles, pursuing the male character of the motorbike rider through diverse landscapes as the opposite side of the lens.

Steps in choosing dresses for the bridal party

Choosing dresses for the bridal party is actually pretty simple. Two basic issues must be taken into consideration first. A bride must decide on a color or color scheme before any dresses can be chosen. Once the color is chosen, a style should be picked out. Formal weddings will require floor length, bridesmaid dresses. Many weddings will only require cocktail length dresses though. Ultimately, it’s important to allow each bridesmaid to have a little bit of input about dress choice. First, choose a color or color scheme. Most brides already have a color scheme in mind. Summer and spring brides often choose pastels. A winter bride may want to go with a deep red or emerald green for her bridesmaids’ dresses. This is the first step in choosing dresses for the bridal party. Some brides will even allow bridesmaids to choose their own dress colors! The options are virtually endless. Next, bring in the bridesmaid to try on a variety of different styles. Chances are that not all of the bridesmaids have the exact same body type. This means that different styles will look good on different women. A great way to make everybody happy is to let each woman choose the style that fits her best. There is nothing worse than making a maid of honor cram herself uncomfortably into an ill-fitting dress. Each woman should be confident in the fit and style of her dress. There is great information about bridal shops in Spartanburg SC at

Behind the Lens

Paris may be the ‘city of lights’, yet, Los Angeles could be labeled the city of ‘light’. The natural light in this city is very particular and resonates beautifully on camera. It is thus no accident that the film industry sprung up here and sunglasses are the essential accessory, for celebrities and non-celebrities alike, to reflect the glare of the considerably bright sun rays.

In this short film directed by KT Auleta, Louis Vuitton presents the Spring/Summer Sunglasses collection for men. The collection draws its inspiration from the Damier canvas which was created in 1888. It remains timeless thanks to a geometric pattern and simple elegance and whether basking in the bright light of LA or elsewhere, it is an essential accessory this summer.

We sell out of our styles quickly so if you don’t see a specific style, it’s probably sold out.

Outfit #2: The coral pink cowboy boots gives this outfit an edgy look  this summer. The pink teardrop charm bracelet goes perfectly with it – the pink with the boots and the blue with the denim top. Add the peach earrings to match the dress.

Outfit #3: This is a great choice for a night out. The leather isn’t a good choice for summer but if you live in a place like San Francisco where you have the cool Bay breeze in the evenings, this may just work. The tank top, silver charm bracelet and black onyx pendant completes the outfit.
Black leather pants with a tan tank top

Outfit #4: If you’re looking for something to make you stand out, this red top and the black leather skirt will do just that. Pair it with the gold charm bracelet and the layered bead necklace give it a bold look. The black messenger bag and white pumps complete the look.
Black Leather Flare Shirt with a Red top or blouse

Outfit #5: This black and white dress is so fun! The white blazer goes with the white trim on the dress and the gold bead pendant and amber earrings gives it a touch of color. Great for an evening pool party or dinner on the beachfront.

Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2013 Bag Names and Prices

The silhouette of the Pre-Fall 2013 collection is based on the Spring/Summer 2013 fashion looks. It retains the same eloongated lines, combined with different lengths, but maredly and purely reminiscent of the Sixties. Nevertheless, the feminine Pre-Fall 2013 silhouette recalls the understated elegance of Jeanne Moreau in Truffaut’s film “The Bride Wore Black.” Elements of men’s late nineteenth century apparel and opulent yet austere details create a more intellectual, dramatic tension. The Pre-Fall 2013 heroine reflects the solemn glamour and sobre grace of a very young Romy Schneider. This neo-aristocratic refinement is reflected in the choice of lace, which makes quite a presence in the collection yet is still subtle.

In continuity with the Spring/Summer 2013 fashion show, the House’s two signatures, the Monogram and the Damier pattern are shown with a graphic 3D and decidedly feminine twist. The Monogram apprears in a tufted relief on the Deauville cube bag. And the Speedy’s canvas is embellished with 3 layers of sequins and color coordinated leather details in black, red, and blue.
