Day 1: Paris Fashion Week with Louis Vuitton

Paris
is always a good idea!
It’s
an even better idea when it is with one of the oldest and most prestigious
fashion houses in Paris, Louis Vuitton. 
Romanticism
is so overpowering in Paris, getting lost between one petite rue after another
and finding yourself in poetically perfect gardens is the dream, that is the
allure of Paris. 
With
Louis Vuitton we embarked on such reveries on our first day in Paris, we
started at Place Colette dressed in deep burgundy culottes and a navy blue cape
sweater from the pre-fall 2013 collection and the roomiest fuchsia Lockit bag.
The Lockit is discreet, it is an ideal bag for city dwellers and travellers
because it could fit everything but the kitchen sink!
We
then ventured into what almost feels like the secret gardens of Paris hidden
behind La Comédie Française to the Jardin Palais Royal. Saying it is beautiful
is an understatement, the richness of the gardens and the walls surrounding the
garden speak of so loudly of the events of yesteryear. You can’t help but feel
like you’ll be transported a la Woody Allen in Midnight in Paris!
Our
next stop was Pont Alexandre III, possibly if not certainly, one of the most
ornate (overdressed) bridges in the world! To which we wore an equally ornate
and overdressed Louis Vuitton look from pre-fall. This was probably one of our
favorite looks as it ticks all the overdressed boxes, midi length bordeaux
coloured sequined dress worn with a short sleeve sequined embellished angora
sweater and over the knee leather boots. Perfection.

The Alma BB in Monogram Vernis was the perfect addition
to the look, not to mention that the Alma is one of our all-time favorite
handbags.

 

Of
course no trip to Paris is ever complete without visiting the landmark Louis
Vuitton Champs-Élysées boutique. After being shown around the shop floor we
were quickly whisked away to the haute maroquinerie salon where all the
customised Louis Vuitton bags are made, the choices of leather colours and
exotics are limitless. 
It is
the pinnacle of Louis Vuitton’s craftsmanship and the ultimate shopping
experience. The exclusive service allows one to create a unique bag of their
own, by choosing the style, the leather and the color according to preference. Owning
an haute maroquinerie bag is one of the highest most refined forms of luxury.
 
After
gawking at all the leather options and dreaming of the perfect customisation…a
trip into a black elevator took us to the rooftops of where fashion meets art at the Espace Culturel.
 
We
were in an exquisite Louis Vuitton pre-Fall Winter 2013 look
carrying the ever so special Malletage Alma BB and wearing over the knee leather
boots.
Just
before parting the store we said goodbye with an incredibly shaped redder than
red Doc BB Epi. Thank you Louis Vuitton for an incredible day one!
