patrick louis vuitton hosts special order event in oslo

OSLO, Norway – Louis Vuitton afficionados welcomed Mr. Patrick Louis Vuitton, 5th-generation member of the family and great grandson of company founder Louis Vuitton, and specially flown-in custom-made creations in an illustrious by-invitation-only Special Order event held Wednesday night at the only Louis Vuitton store in Norway. This was reportedly Mr. Vuitton’s first LV visit in Scandinavia.

Anette Stai, early supermodel, brand ambassador and marketing chief of Louis Vuitton Norway, greeted the well-heeled guests. Flutes of Moët & Chandon were served while everyone admired the stunning display of Special Order creations flown in for the event from France.

In exhibition were a beauty case in leather from 1927, a violin case in natural cowhide leather from 1895, and a picnic trunk in monogram canvas from 1926, all encased in vitrines. Guests were also treated to a demonstration of Louis Vuitton’s eminent craftsmanship by artisans from France.

Patrick Louis Vuitton was on hand to mingle with guests and to a few, lucky people autograph their LV items. Biancaboo got her “Birth of Modern Luxury” and “Icons” books signed, and to everyone’s surprise, Vuitton took Biancaboo’s daughter’s  silver Miroir cosmetic pouch and penned his signature inside. Pattythelegend got her “The Art of the Automobile” book signed as well.

Spotted on store display were the recently launched Monogramouflage Lys and the Vernis Alma in Amarante and Pomme D’Amour, which Biancaboo joyously took home with her. Spotted among guests were several Lockits, a Motard After Dark, a Mahina in black, a Watercolor Speedy Frame, a Sac Rayures GM, and a Richard Prince Graduate among others.

Glasses clinked throughout the party as palates were teased with an array of exquisite canapes, and later that night dessert platters and coffee.

Patrick Louis Vuitton is the third of the fashion luminaries I’ve met so far. I have interviewed Mr. Yves Piaget of the Swiss-based jeweller and watch manufacturer Piaget and Mr. Roberto Coin of the namesake Italian fine jewelry brand.

Thanks to Pattythelegend and biancaboo for taking me to my first Louis Vuitton party! Love ya both! :)
