Kenzo sweatshirts



RELEASE DATE: Autumn/Winter 2012 

THE STORY:

Creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon (Opening Ceremony founders) were researching through the label's archives when they found a small running tiger motif inside waistbands and jackets, which they then embroidered on an autumn/winter 2012 knitted jumpers - although this wasn't the piece that would set fashion hearts racing. After the runway show has finished Leon decided to make more casual version for himself. 



"I told Kenzo, 'I'm going to make a tiger sweatshirt for myself,'" Leon recalls. "They were like, 'What kind of fabric?' I said, 'Er… sweatshirt material,' and they said, 'We don't do sweatshirts.'"

Luckily for the brand's adoring fans, the correct fabric was found and the item became a bestseller.

"The knitted and embroidered jumper that we created was quite expensive and we didn't sell that many. But then there was a waiting list in store for the sweater as it got shot for the ad campaign. So when the sweatshirt came in, it just blew up. We just couldn't keep it in stores.






The Kenzo sweatshirts are brand's best selling category and the fastest-selling too. There are numbers of waiting lists for the new prints and colours each season.

Bloggers and fashion insiders from all over the world got caught very quickly for comfortable and affordable Kenzo sweatshirts. The most popular prints are tiger, evil eye, monster etc.

Louis Vuitton Petite Malle

THE STORY:

Louis Vuitton began with a trunk in 1854, when a sixteen year-old Mr Vuitton introduced his flat-bottom canvas cases to the streets of Paris, creating what is considered one of the first pieces of modern luggage. Revolutionary in design, the pieces incorporated an even top and used canvas as opposed to hide. 160 years later, the iconic luggage still sits at the heart of every collection, never more so than Nicolas Ghesquière’s debut A/W14 show in March earlier this year when the designer gave each model a mini LV trunk, paying homage the brand’s heritage. 

The Louis Vuitton Petite Malle bag got its iconic "It-Bag" status just after it has been seen on the runway. The bag’s name Petite Malle translates as "small trunk" in English. 


DETAILS:

The Louis Vuitton Petite Malle is available in the classic Monogram Canvas, Damier Ebene, Epi Leather and Mettalic Epi Leather. The trim is made in Epi leather with metal hardware. Permanent collection comes with gold hardware. The Louis Vuitton Petite Malle opens from the top, making the front locks just part of the design and lined with lamb skin. It includes a removable shoulder strap and can be used as a shoulder bag, cross body or as clutch.
