The perfect shoe for the post-wedding day brunch.
Cocktail Chatter Cliff’s Notes: Did you know that, thanks to counterfeiting, just over 1% of all products bearing the signature LV monogram are actually genuine Louis Vuitton? Since 1854, this luxury leather goods company has been setting the standard for everyone from Madison Avenue fashionistas to bridge and tunnel wannabes. We’ve been paying extra attention since Marc Jacobs came on as the label’s artistic director in 1997, introducing a pret-a-porter line and bringing in art and fashion legends like Takashi Murakami and Stephen Sprouse to collaborate on bags. (Anyone remember these gorgeous shoes? Yeah, you do.)
Louis Vuitton is partnered with for online shopping, so if your nearest metropolis is more Topeka than Tokyo, you can still get a piece of fashion history. Take off on your honeymoon with a luggage set in the classic original Damier canvas or add a quirky touch to your bridal ensemble with these open-toed That’s Love pumps.
