Louis Vuitton Concludes “200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries” Exhibition Tour in New York

Who: Louis Vuitton

What: “200 trunks, 200 visionaries: the exhibition”

Where: 660 Madison Avenue, New York

Why: Louis Vuitton has been touring the world with its “200 trunks, 200 visionaries” exhibition since August 2021, and now it has made its fourth and final stop in New York.

Everyone from Gloria Steinem to Peter Marino and Stephen Sprouse (pictured here) has given their take on the legendary luggage, which ties into the historical and technical aspects of the exhibit that decode the genre-defining trunk. The icing on the cake ? LV has reopened Fred’s, the legendary Barneys restaurant, which will serve food and drink during limited-time windows. A throwback, indeed.

The Elizabeth Purpich collection elevates game day style

Who: Elisabeth Purpich

What: Launch of Longhorn Mini bag

Where: Elisabeth Purpich Collection

Why: Forget those Bama Rush TikTok viral fashion videos. Houston-based handbag designer Beth Purpich champions what she calls “college luxury.” A former college athlete herself (she played basketball for Auburn) with a flair for design, Purpich uses only the finest materials and the most skilled artisans to produce her collections. Among its biggest hits to date is the Longhorn bag, which debuted as a calf-hair top handle and found a perfect ambassador in Austin stylist Loreal Sarkisian, who happens to be the wife of University of Texas football coach Steve Sarkisian. Sarkisian, always impeccable (the woman sidelined Chanel), wore the new mini version (stadium-approved size) in burnt orange alligator during last weekend’s game against Oklahoma which saw the Longhorns s impose 49-0. Maybe it also serves as a lucky charm?
