be mine


I called my SA at Louis Vuitton earlier today to check whether they have received the Damier Etole in either Noir, Bordeaux or Bleu. This stole in a luxurious blend of 70% cashmere and 30% silk is one of the coming season’s must-haves for guys. My SA revealed that today, July 1, is the launch of the Damier Etole but they have only received the Noir and there’s already a waitlist on it, six-men deep. Gosh.

I went to the store where my SA presented me the stole, ran my fingers across the soft wrinkly surface, wrapped it around my neck and admired the reinterpreted Damier pattern.

So I signed up for the Noir but my heart really beats for the Bordeaux. It just looks so rich, royal and sinful. Given that our store wouldn’t be getting it automatically (apparently only stores with RTW will according to my SA), I asked my SA to special order it for me and hope that either Paris or London will send it our way. Deluxeduck reveals however that they won’t be available until mid-August. Such a looong wait!



Coordinating with Louis Vuitton’s signature Damier Graphite canvas, this cashmere and silk stole is a luxurious and fashionable accessory for men. Size: 200 x 130 cm / 80 x 52 inches. 70% cashmere, 30% silk. Outsize Louis Vuitton signature. £420, 4.400 Norwegian kroner.

    This is a lovely colour indeed… thankfully I don’t have much use for them in sunny Singapore, or I will be putting my credit card down for one too!

      My SA is trying to have a transfer from Paris/London, but it’s looking unlikely. I hope I’ll be able to get my hands on it. I will show once it’s mine. :)

    gosh, if only the weather in the philippines can get cooler than at least 10 degrees! haha.

    ya, the bordeaux’s color is so nice and attractive, away from the usual grays and blacks of men’s scarves…go get both na lang kaya. :P

      I know! I’m sure you would have snapped one too. Hehehe.

      I’m not really a red person but I find this stole rather tempting. :) I’m waitlisted on the black, but the bordeaux my SA is trying to get. London wants to keep the bordeaux to themselves. :( We’ll see how everything goes… Wish me luck!

          sinabi mo! i’ll try to check with an LV store in the city i’m going to in a few weeks. sayang din ang tax refund. hehehe. otherwise, pwede nga siguro pabili kay em, pero i will have to get it from him. takot kasi ako na ipadala nya sa akin bec. of possible import taxes na babayaran ko. thanks for the thought!
