Just as we hoped, Louis Vuitton is out to get their money's worth from the elaborate conveyor belt windows that they installed at their Fifth Avenue flagship back in mid-July. First, they displayed a parade of the classic Speedy bag, and then shoes, and now yet another bag: the conservative Alma.
Starting at $1,030, the Alma is the quintessential powerful businesswoman purse. It states "I've got my shit together" while keeping you firmly out of the Kimora Lee Simmons realm of LV bags. Unless you go multicolore, and then it's hello, Paris Hilton.
Anyways, we digress. Let us once again be amazed at the straightforward and innovative windows, ones that manage to stop just about every few pedestrians for a closer look, no matter how crowded the sidewalk.
