When I was just a teeny-tiny boy (which wasn’t too long ago), I remember doing the pinky promise with my best friends and school mates over the things we hold so dear to our little hearts. The intertwining of the pinkies between two individuals signifies a promise made.
To make a promise today holds so much more. A promise we make today, is a promise we hold for life.
Since 2016, Louis Vuitton has made a promise to the world’s most vulnerable children. Children living in war-torn conditions; children exposed to diseases and natural disasters. It is in this promise that Louis Vuitton has committed, through UNICEF, to help bring life-saving humanitarian support to these children in need.
Louis Vuitton renews its promise to bring hope for a better life by launching its first #MakeAPromise day on 12 January 2017 to raise funds for children in need.
A specially designed silver Lockit necklace/bracelet has been created for this year’s #MakeAPromise. In full sterling silver, the necklace is about 20 cm long, and the bracelet length stands at 17.5 cm, but adjustable to between 15 cm and 16 cm. And for each sale of the necklace/bracelet, USD200 is donated to UNICEF, which will go toward protecting children from diseases and providing disaster relief.
So come and make a pinky promise with me today.Handbags If you’re on a hunt for the best bag fashion statement, look no further as the Louis Vuitton Tuileries Bag just gives you that, or even more with its interesting tri-color combination. Featuring an eclectic and eye-catching mix of Monogram canvas and tricolor cowhide leather and the outside zipped pocket with ‘red’ pullers, this Louis Vuitton bag weaves a bold and loud fashion story for it to stand out. Aside from its obvious remarkable beauty, the Tuileries Bag also offers multi-functionality at its best since it can be carried on several ways thanks to its twin black Toron handles for a chic elbow carry and a strap for over-the-shoulder wear or cross-body. To make it all the more appealing, the Tuileries Bag features gold-tone metallic pieces to complete the look of the Monogram canvas. It also has microfiber lining and colorful cowhide leather trim. As an added security, it has a zipped closure, which is easy to use. For compartment lovers, fret not for it offers an outside zipped pocket with leather pullers, an inside flat pocket, and a double smartphone pocket. And as you can see, the bag comes with two double zipper – one to open the main compartment on the top and the middle section to open the outside zipped pocket. The design is stunning because its created with a curvy shape, like the orange interior is partly exposed to the outside. The Louis Vuitton Tuileries Bag measures 13.8” x 9.4” x 5.1” (L x H x W) inches and is priced $2490 USD, €1840 euro, £1710 GBP, $19700 HKD, $3250 AUD, ¥302400 JPY, ¥18200 CNY via Louis Vuitton boutiques. Louis Vuitton brings us a Hobo sling in two sizes, and a top handle tote in the form of the line named Tuileries. The line is inspired by the Tuileries Gardens, the recent Paris Fashion Week location. The french Fashion House’s heritage iconic monogram, with a twist of colorful leather to catch onto the street fashion trends. The Tuileries Hobo and Besace are essentially the same bag, but the Besace is smaller than the bigger Hobo. It comes with a flat strap shoulder sling, but the round hardware (similar to the Artsy’s), it’s the perfect right to clasp bag charms, or straps sold separately from LV, or other brands. It also sports a nice double zipper thin pocket right smack on the front, allowing you a nice slip in pocket. In case Hobos aren’t your style, there are top handle bags that come in the line. Simply called Tuileries with no second name moniker. What ties the Tuileries line together is the mix of the iconic monogram, and colorful palettes of leather generously trimming around the bags.
