A barrage of Louis Vuitton products just one click away. See more here.
Even with the changing of hands at Louis Vuitton from Marc Jacobs to Nicolas Ghesquiere as head designer, the brand will likely never drop its iconic “LV” logo. No matter what shape it takes, those two letters spell luxury. Whether you’re buying new or secondhand, eBay has a whole host of the LV classics. Click here to check them out.

Musical Chairs at LV
After a week of nail biting, rumors that Nicolas Ghesquière will be taking over from Marc Jacobs as Creative Director at Louis Vuitton have still not been confirmed. Whatever the case, there’s going to be a bit of a shuffle. As we all know, Alexander Wang is deep into his new position at Balenciaga, having just presented his second collection this past fashion week following Nicolas Ghesquière’s departure last November.
Whether Nicolas Ghesquière is confirmed or not, it appears Jacobs is for sure on the out. Now the question is, Where will Marc Jacobs go? Marc recently told the New York Times he’s going to lay low for a sec and just focus on his own line.
We suggest you snatch up some collector Marc Jacobs-era Louis Vuitton on eBay before the new stuff hits the stores — quite possibly designed by Ghesquière. Stay tuned.

PFW: Louis Vuitton
Marc Jacobs went dark to the maximum for this year’s SS14 collection. With massive feather headdresses and gothic flair, this was a luxe and beautiful spectacle of grand proportions. Not that we expect anything less from a master showman such as Jacobs.

Love for Louis
First seen set against blue icebergs around the neck of model Werner Schreyer in Louis Vuitton’s 2012 Autumn/ Winter campaign, the camel and charcoal pattern in this gorgeous scarf (seen above) immediately communicated a sense of absolute luxury that the brand is known for. It’s subtle, yet signature. If you’re looking for something a little more traditionally flash, eBay has a few wool scarf options to check out here.

Louis Vuitton Goes Literary
Just to step up your Hemingway hand, Louis Vuitton has freshly announced an expanded range of writing instruments, such as these glossy alligator leather pens (seen above, $2,220). You’ll have to wait until December 13th to see the whole collection revealed to WWD. Some of the products, which took two years to develop, are said to introduce new patented innovations for pens since 1953. The collection will find a retail home inside what is called “Louis Vuitton’s Writing Room” (or “Le Cabinet d’Ecriture Louis Vuitton”, which sounds infinitely more chic). The temporary boutique is located at 6 Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris. Mark those calendars to spoil your luxury friend this Christmas.

Trendspotting: The Kitten Heel
By Jenny Bahn
What’s new Pussycat? After years of designers churning out sky-high platforms, it’s time we consider the kitten heel, a shoe previously reserved for sensible business women and grandmothers. This season we’ve seen a healthy range of heel heights. For those dedicated to their five-inch stilettos, there were still plenty of those, don’t worry. I did notice however that the modest and foot-friendly kitten heel has been embraced by everyone from Louis Vuitton to Lanvin. eBay has a few selections from Lanvin to LV to get you started on the sophisticated low riders. Isabel Marant’s studded, rocker chic sandals (pictured above) are actually rock concert friendly. Now that’s a first.
