ooh la la Louis Vuitton Maison Vancouver

2 storey handbag wall @ LV Maison Vancouver

No amount of rain could have stopped VIP guests from attending the invite-only Louis Vuitton Maison opening party last night in Vancouver.  The celebrities and journalists probably didn’t even notice each other’s soppy hair while basking in the lap of 10,000 square feet of LV luxury.

The Louis Vuitton Maison store situated in the Hotel Vancouver is the first of its kind in Canada and there are only eleven Maison stores around the globe.  According to Jean-Philippe Hecquet, vice-president at Louis Vuitton Canada, Vancouver was a natural choice for Canada’s first LV Maison.  “It’s a very dynamic city with a strong image and character, and its own personality. It represents a truly diverse, sophisticated cultural centre, one which we knew would be extremely receptive to the very highest level of Louis Vuitton creativity,” he said.

The LV Maison Vancouver houses ready-to-wear, shoes, watches, jewelery and of course, LV luggage including a trunk for $35,000.  There is a dramatic two-storey wall of handbags and original Canadian artwork by Vancouver artist Steven Shearer.

Soppy hair or not, Vancouverites are looking good in their new maison.

LV – Crème de la Crème

I haven’t blogged for a few days so I thought this post should be extra delicious.  Louis Vuitton‘s preview video of their 2011 Paris City Guide is mouth-watering as it shows variations of the Saint Honoré – “a genuine Parisian cake.”

The 2011 European Edition Box Set is to be released on October 15th and will feature seven new cities including Oxford and Porto Cervo.

LV has been publishing these stylish city guides since 1998 and provide a wealth of information for the discerning traveller.  Globe-trotting has never been so delectable!

iCandy for the iPad

The iPad is such a fun toy that it deserves a pretty case when toting around town or taking on your travels to faraway places. These are some of my favorite iPad cases on the market:  Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Oscar de la Renta and Louis Vuitton.  All retail in the $300-$400 range.
