Rare Louis Vuitton Shoe Trunk for $68,500!

Every time I put a pair of shoes in this they should be automatically cleaned, and it better come with a prostitute resembling Halle Berry. $68,500! You got to be shitting me, more like ‘diarrheaing’ me.

A rare and highly sought-after piece of vintage Louis Vuitton luggage, the renowned “Malle Chaussures” shoe trunk from the 1920s, is being offered for sale by London’s Pullman Gallery for $68,500 in the wake of a recently published landmark work on Vuitton trunks.

The trunk embodies the glamour and sophistication of a more elegant era, when such items were de rigeur for wealthy travelers. Featuring the iconic LV monogram on its canvas-upholstered frame, the trunk is fully outfitted to facilitate the most meticulous fashion plate. It contains compartments for 30 pairs of shoes in individual shoe boxes with ancillary drawers and trays for a shoe-cleaning kit.

Each of the padded drawers features a leather pull tab and nameplate. At the time Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar declared the “Malle Chaussures” to be the ultimate symbol of Parisian chic and a requisite travel accessory of every truly stylish woman.

Hermès – Arceau Pocket Promenade de Longchamp

Talk about a fly ass pocket watch! All I need now is a monocle and top hat. OK, that’s overboard but it is very dope.

The Arceau wristwatch imagined in 1978 by Henri d’Origny lends itself ideally to a pocket-watch version.

Its asymmetrical attachment and its lugs naturally invite a cord-strap fixed to the arch like a stirrup leather to a stirrup, thus evoking the saddle- and harness-making origins of Hermès.

Whether in a trouser or jacket pocket, the manner of wearing the Arceau Pocket further accentuates the innate classic chic of the original watch design.

The Arceau Pocket Promenade de Longchamp introduces a new dial that is a true work of art sculpted from a block of natural mother-of-pearl.

Louis XIII Cognac

On March 12th Remy Martin will liberate this incredibly expensive cognac in Singapore at DFS Group’s Master of Spirits event. Back in 1938, a series of decanters were used during royal dinners with King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and they were each numbered, this one is 718. Supposedly, this costs $50,000.

Porcelain Art by Kate Macdowell

I’ve lived and worked in many different environments and cultures that have influenced the way I perceive the world, and therefore my pieces. These experiences have ranged from teaching in urban high schools and producing websites in the high-tech corporate environment, to volunteering at a meditation retreat center in rural India a few hours outside of the fever pitch of Bombay. I’ve also collected visual imagery and ideas from my travels through Renaissance Italy, Classical and Minoan Greece, Nepal and Thailand.

Think hot bald-headed chick in Rush Hour 3. Amber Rose can’t even look that damn good with a baldy like Noemie Lenoir. PERIOD!
Dear Future Wife, you must look something if not exactly like her.
