The Louis Vuitton All-In-One.

In the past four years, there has been an explosion in the popularity of the Louis Vuitton brand among the 25 to 40 age bracket. This can be attributed to the ever increasing 'product- placement' of it's products in movies and urban music culture. The L.V. logo is meant to symbolise success and wealth which can help to explain its popularity among this demographic.

I usually do not succumb to the band wagon effect but in this case I took an exception to the 'all-in-one' personal organiser.

At first I thought it was the usual L.V product but I took a trip to the Sloane street store in London and was pleasantly surprised by this little booklet.

It contains;
1. A mini calculater (in case you are in a business meeting).
2. A 12-page leather-bound business card section (takes 36 cards in total).
3. A credit card/any other card you might want to carry section (takes 5 cards).
4. A bi-annual calender page (in my case 2007 and 2008).
5. A 16-page address section ( 4 per page).
6. A 48-page note book with the L.V. insignia on each page.

Here's the kicker, how they managed to fit all this in to one little booklet is what sold me; plus it's so damn good looking, light and can fit into a small bag.

There's no better feeling than when you want to take someone's details and you unleash this secret weapon. The expression on their faces says it all which compensates for the hefty price tag (which I will not reveal for 'tax purposes', let's just say it's in the higher 3-digit range).

May be I'm shallow, but then again, aren't we all?

Now here's some optical nutrition.

i guess because there's just so many rip offs of the LV print that they're dangerous close to having a Burberry-gate. remember in the pre-bailey years when anyone ever wearing burberry was a chav?
this is a very, very stylish touch. somehow i don't think that calculator can do all the mathematical functions i'd need it to..

I like LV, but do people really still use address books anymore when you have PDAs?

the nyanzi report said...

Yes, people still use address books, like myself and many others I know.

It's quick and easily accessible for those moments when your PDA just won't work and your in a hurry.

Try it. You never know.

I have to admit that I rely totally on my blackberry and i-phone. Sad... but true. I still read real books, though. Will never buy a kindle.

I've lost track of time too here - I need to get to work in my studio. Anyhow, I like your new assistant - make sure you "need" to take it out and use it quite often...and dramatically in front of many people. Ha!
