20190730news_20190729230454_05.jpg

甜品“海棠”里用到了中式甜点中常用的黑糖和紫薯芋泥,“独角兽”以红茶慕斯和金线工艺模拟了 ENZO 海棠系列珠宝的色彩和线条。

20190730news_20190729230454_06.jpg

甜品“四叶草”的 4 个“叶片”有不同的外观和风味,这一点和 ENZO Clover 四叶草系列珠宝的设计异曲同工。甜点中蓝色的是伯爵茶桃子味,红色是黑巧克力百香果味,绿色是抹茶拿铁味,紫色则是杏仁薰衣草树莓味。

20190730news_20190729230454_07.jpg

“炫耀”则是以白巧克力脆珠围绕肉桂血橙巧克力的形式重现了 ENZO 炫耀系列的经典造型。此外,甜点还加入了小青桔甘纳许和杏仁酥底,不仅外观和 ENZO 炫耀系列神似,口感也很丰富。

最近两年已经能明显感受到各大品牌对七夕的重视了,早些年,更多品牌只是从常规系列中拎出一些单品来罗列一份礼物推荐清单,而现在,品牌为七夕打造专门的限定系列已经成为一种常态。今年 Louis Vuitton 继续为七夕特别设计了一系列限定单品,并在全国 5 座城市打造了限定店。其中,重庆唯一一家限定店在星光 68 广场,店内不仅有七夕限定单品,还有 LV 一系列的抢手新品。

lv_qixi_20190729204005_00.gif

最近我们就去逛了一下重庆星光 68 广场的这间 LV 七夕限定店。事实上整个商场里已经有了浓浓的七夕氛围,星光 68 推出了以“星光致爱”为主题的七夕特别活动,联手众多品牌带来了优惠福利。当然,LV 的限定店无疑就是整个活动期间的重中之重了。


10000 朵手工花打造的浪漫空间

星光 68 的这间 LV 七夕限定店位于商场 LG 层中庭,椭球形的空间主打粉色调,整个限定店由 10000 朵 LV 特有的手工定染花朵给包围,朝外的花以淡粉色为主,室内的花则更多采用红色和深红色的组合,整体很有层次感。

lv_qixi_20190729204005_01.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204005_04.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204005_05.jpg

除了有浪漫的“花朵墙”之外,这次的限定店里还有一个非常适合拍照的位置——内部的巨形 Vivienne 玩偶,它的身体是木质的,头部的花瓣是红色漆皮材质,Monogram 花形眼睛则是粉色的。其实今年 LV 还推出了多款和 Vivienne 相关的七夕限定产品,我们之后也会介绍到。

lv_qixi_20190729204005_06.jpg


有哪些七夕礼物的理想之选?

推荐具体的单品前,我们先来大概扫一眼 LV 七夕限定店的货架。整体来说,这次的产品可以分两大类,一类是 LV 为今年七夕推出的限定单品,另一类则是常规系列中的爆款,从颜色上可以非常容易地将两类区分开来,七夕限定款基本上都是红色设计(总之拿不准的就问问现场的店员就好,你会发现店员特别乐意回答你的问题)。

事实上这两类之间又有一定的关联性,LV 今年格外有心地精选了一系列热门单品作为七夕限定款的原型,以手袋为例,Mini Dauphine、“软盒子”、“飞碟包”都有七夕限定版本。而另一部分常规单品的话题度恐怕也不亚于七夕限定款,比如老花的 Mini Dauphine、“口红包”和“圆饼包”Boite Chapeau Souple 等等,都是人气极高的热门款,平时基本都得预订排队,而在这家限定店里则会有现货。星光 68 广场方面告诉我们,限定店会尽可能确保七夕限定单品货量充足,而日常爆款就需要大家拼手速咯。

lv_qixi_20190729204005_07.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204005_08.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204005_09.jpg

另外,LV 还打造了 4 款七夕限定款服装单品,都是带有一些特别设计的基本款,包括一侧绑带的 T 恤和一款无袖连衣裙,这两款单品的领子都有 Monogram Flower 孔眼。还有一件动物印花的亮片刺绣 T 恤连衣裙,以及一件中长版型的 A 字形大衣,大衣配有平纹皮革和 Monogram 帆布双面腰带,在多个细节都饰有 Monogram 帆布。

lv_qixi_20190729204335_03.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204335_04.jpg

另外,限定店里还有 Archlight 运动鞋和 Silhouette 及踝靴,以及丝巾、太阳镜、香水、首饰、无线耳机智能腕表、Vivienne 玩偶、音乐盒、Scott 收纳盒等等种类丰富的单品,都是非常适合作为礼物的选择。

lv_qixi_20190729204335_05.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204335_08.jpg

对限定店的货品有个整体了解之后,再来看看我们为大家准备的这份礼物清单吧。我们推荐的单品以七夕限定款为主,毕竟这部分最有七夕节的气氛,同时,LV 的这些七夕限定单品基本就是主打红色设计,没有多余的赘饰,日常使用也非常百搭。另外,就像我们刚强调过的,LV 今年的七夕限定产品都是以爆款为原型打造的。总之,七夕限定款就是兼具仪式感、话题度和实用性的选择了。

1. Mini Dauphine 手袋

之前带大家去逛 LV 在成都的“时间锦囊”展览时,我们特别介绍过网红手袋“达芙妮”的原型,这次 LV 也打造了一款七夕限定 Mini Dauphine,红色 Venis 漆皮的“达芙妮”会比复古的老花款更有摩登感,因为材质上的差异,漆皮这款外观也更有立体感一些。这款手袋的价格是 23400 元。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_00.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204725_01.jpg

2. Trunk Clutch 手袋

“软盒子”因为兼具“小硬箱”的外观风格又比后者实用许多,从去年推出以来,它的人气就居高不下。它比“硬盒子”要轻便,但更能装,不仅容量大,内部还有两个隔层和一个贴袋,方便分类。七夕限定款采用的也是红色漆面 Vernis 小牛皮,搭配金色铆钉和 S 型锁扣,以及可调节、可拆卸链条皮革肩带,价格和常规款一样,都是 24400 元。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_02.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204725_03.jpg

3. Petite Malle 手袋

当然也有很多同学对于“小硬箱”的颜值是毫无抵抗力的,它所具备的硬挺廓形、复古感的气质都是“软盒子”不能比拟的。今年 LV 也有带来红色漆皮版的“小硬箱”,主体是 Vernis 压纹漆皮材质,搭配小牛皮饰边,价格 38500 元。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_04.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204725_05.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204725_06.jpg

4. Toupie 手袋

“飞碟包”也叫“陀螺包”,这款外形特殊的手袋比想象中的要能装,iPhone XS 也能放得下,基本上日常出门用的手机、车钥匙、口红、纸巾都能一块装下,包包里配有内衬,拿放物品都很有安全感。这款手袋除了手提之外,其实也可以肩背。七夕限定款同样采用了红色 Venis 漆皮,并配有皮革流苏和树脂饰珠,还蛮有中国风味道的。价格是 17500 元。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_07.jpg

5. CANNES 手袋

“圆桶包”也属于比看起来更实用的那一类手袋,上手轻便,手袋配有可拆卸、可调节的肩带,顶部有手柄,可以单肩背、斜挎也可以手提。“圆桶包”的另一大好处在于,不管包包里放什么都不容易变形,廓形很硬挺。这款红色漆皮的设计也比老花更摩登大胆,复古的味道不那么浓,非常百搭,价格是 20100 元。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_08.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204725_09.jpg

6. Silhouette 及踝靴

接下来看看鞋款,LV 为 Silhouette 及踝靴也打造了七夕限定款,红色漆皮材质再加上鞋款标志性的 Monogram 花卉鞋跟,设计格外高调,带有强烈的复古未来感。拉环和拉链都是经典的 Monogram 帆布,表明身份。这款靴子非常适合酷女孩,价格 9650 元。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_10.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204725_11.gif

7. Archlight 运动鞋

推荐的另一款也是走的高调路线,这款 Archlight 运动鞋在整个重庆都是独家发售。鞋身采用了高科技面料,金属风格材质、皮革、网眼材质等多种面料拼接令外观层次感和立体感十足,标志性的弹力波浪形外底也以金属风格示人,更增添了鞋款的未来感。虽然它其实已经有很高的辨识度了,但鞋舌处的 LV 贴饰、后跟处搭配的 Monogram 帆布拉环以及外底的 LV logo 等等,强调身份的品牌标示也一点不少。这款鞋的价格是 8800 元。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_12.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204725_13.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204725_14.jpg

8. Vivienne 玩偶和音乐盒

Vivienne 玩偶送女生和男生都合适,这家限定店除了可以买到七夕限定款之外,还有今年的多个新款,包括很受欢迎的日式风情款,以及戴着遮阳帽的一款。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_15.jpg

七夕限定款主打红色和粉色,和店内放置的巨型玩偶是相似的设计,还多背了一个超迷你的 Heart 手袋,不仅点明了七夕节的主题,也更显得俏皮可爱。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_16.jpg

lv_qixi_20190729204725_17.gif

Vivienne 音乐盒也是非常适合作为礼物的一款单品。120 x 105 x 105mm 的小盒子包裹着 Monogram 帆布,内衬是粉色的,除了可以作为音乐盒,还可以放一些小首饰发挥收纳的作用。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_18.gif

9. Color Blossom BB 18K 金玉髓钻石项链

首饰方面,Color Blossom BB 系列和 Essential V Color 系列都有多款七夕限定单品,主要是融入了红色设计。推荐给大家的是一款 Color Blossom BB 18K 金玉髓钻石项链,属于经典百搭的设计,不挑人,价格 17700 元。另外其实常规系列中的粉色珍珠母贝款也很适合作为七夕节礼物相赠。

lv_qixi_20190729204725_19.jpg


以上就是我们重点为大家推荐的七夕礼物啦。值得一提的是,在 LV 这次开出的全部 5 家七夕限定店当中,重庆星光 68 广场这家店的持续时间是最长的,将会一直营业到 9 月 1 日,这期间在重庆的同学有足够的时间可以去逛逛看,除了七夕限定款产品,这里还有多款热门包袋乃至不少全城首发产品和独家产品都会出现,另外,在限定店购物大家还可以拿到七夕特别包装。

Aries

Best: You’re ready to take on the world around you with confidence and enthusiasm. You’re a compassionate leader who doesn’t hesitate to take the lead but is encouraging rather than demanding. You’re protective and loyal towards your loved ones, and you know how to get everyone excited about whatever new adventure is coming up.

Worst: You’re possessive and territorial, particularly with those you have your eye on. You are domineering and inconsiderate, believing you know best how to handle things, even if you don’t. You let your anger take the driver’s seat and you bulldoze over anything in your path with full force. You have a hard time following through on things because you’re easily bored and search more for the thrill than the actual moment.

Taurus

Best: You are level-headed and don’t let anyone push you around. You are loyal to your loved ones on an unprecedented level- anytime they need someone, you’re there. You know the value of consistency and provide a stable environment for yourself and those around you. You understand the value of hard work, and you do any task assigned to you well.

Worst: You are closed off to anything new or unknown to you. You make snap judgments about people who don’t automatically fit into the framework of your life. You rarely trust people, and you make them feel inadequate because of it. You believe your way is not only the best, but the only way, and you refuse to compromise with anyone.

Gemini

Best: You are witty and know how to engage everyone in the room in conversations. You don’t let conversations drag and you rarely run out of interesting things to discuss. You’re kind and understanding, willing to look at other people’s points of view rather than simply your own. You inspire others to follow their passion and provide a strong sense of encouragement to their lives that are hard to find elsewhere.

Worst: You’re indecisive in most aspects of your life. You are always afraid of missing out on something new, so you never commit to anything and push people away because of it. You’re always trying to prove that you know more than others, so you talk over them or interrupt them to speak your mind. You make promises that you don’t follow through on because you want to be liked, but you won’t give up another opportunity that seems more fun. You grow tired of people and relationships easily, so your connections with others are superficial at best.

Cancer

Best: You’re compassionate and kind-hearted beyond measure. You make sure the people you care about know they are loved deeply, and they appreciate you for it. You remember the things others overlook, and you elevate others above yourself. You care for your own needs because you understand the importance of balance, but you’re still considerate and selfless through and through.

Worst: You worry that you’re not good enough for people, so you cling to them tightly in hopes they won’t leave. You allow your emotions to take the driver’s seat in your decisions, and often this leads you into trouble. You put everyone else’s needs above your own but feel resentful that no one does the same thing for you. You don’t talk about the things that bother you, so you let it all build up inside until you explode, causing friction in your relationships.

Leo

Best: You’re a dynamic force to be reckoned with. You are charming and entertaining and capable of garnering attention without trying to take away from others. You are supportive and encouraging to those around you, and you inspire them with your own sense of confidence. You have the backs of anyone who you’re close to, and you refuse to let them be taken advantage of in any situation. You’re fiercely loyal and passionate, showering your relationships with love and validation every step of the way.

Worst: You’re self-seeking and arrogant, believing no one can top you in any situation. You cut others down in order to make yourself look superior by comparison. You spend more time making things appear to be spectacular, rather than investing in anything of substance. You make your relationships one-sided, ensuring they will complement and validate you while you rarely return the favor. You keep relationships and friends at a distance because you always believe you can do better.

Virgo

Best: You’re intelligent and organized throughout most aspects of your life. You are about the little details and you ensure that everything runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. You strive to be a better version of yourself every day, and you encourage others in your life to do the same. You are always a shoulder to lean on or a person to come to when you’re needed, and you value close relationships. You’re more open to trusting others and opening up because you know that vulnerability isn’t the same as weakness.

Worst: You expect perfection from yourself and those around you and become frustrated when that doesn’t happen. You’re picky and critical of others who don’t think or do things the way you do. You easily judge people without getting to know them, using it a defense mechanism to keep others from getting close to you. You prioritize logic over feelings to the extent that you never allow emotions to have any say in your life.

Libra

Best: You’re charming and tactful, and you have a way of bringing people together in ways others can’t. You’re patient and able to hear others viewpoints without demeaning them. You’re outgoing and positive, bringing a certain energy to any group you happen to part of. You care about others deeply and go out of your way to make sure things are calm so that everyone can have a good time.

Worst: You are so fixated on making sure everything on the outside is gorgeous and perfect that you neglect anything else. You don’t actually care if problems or issues are “fixed”, just as long as they look that way. You stir up drama just so you can “fix” it and look like a hero. You allow people to walk all over you, then grow resentful as they do despite that you won’t speak up for yourself.

Scorpio

Best: You’re intelligent and intriguing, able to draw people in and form connections. You’re passionate and alluring and have no trouble expressing affection to people. You are able to form strong, trusting, deep connections with your loved ones that allow you to be vulnerable. You are self-aware and intuitive, able to process your thoughts and emotions on your own that help you relate with and help others.

Worst: You’re manipulative and deceitful, only interested in relationships that satisfy your own desires. You lie easily and put up walls in order to keep others at a distance. You believe that being on your own is best because no one could possibly be good enough to be in your life. You’re untrusting and callous, refusing to see the potential good in anything or anyone.

Sagittarius

Best: You’re hilarious and light-hearted and are able to see the best in just about anything. You’re easy-going and adventurous, willing to take on the day with an enthusiasm unrivaled by anyone. You see life as something to explore, and you long to take your loved ones with you so you can experience it together. You’re spontaneous and witty and are able to get along with just about anyone. You see the good in life and you are determined to live it to the fullest.

Worst: You’re reckless and inconsiderate and are mostly consumed with what you want. You are so afraid of missing out on new opportunities, you keep yourself detached and uncommitted, regardless of who you hurt. You’re dishonest and claim it’s to spare feelings when in reality you just don’t want to look like a bad person. You refuse to deal with the realities or responsibilities of day-to-day life, and only choose to live in your own fantasy world. You rely on others to bail you out of tough situations and don’t care how inconvenient it is for them.

Capricorn

Best: You’re strong in your work ethic and you know how to get things done. You set high goals, but you achieve them. You know how to balance your work-load with the rest of your life, and know-how to not neglect the people in your life who care for you. You understand the importance of tradition but know there is a time to compromise and a time to fight for your convictions. You’re loyal and always available to help when you’re needed.

Worst: You prioritize success above anything else. You neglect and ignore anything in your life that won’t contribute to your end goal. You view emotions as a weakness, and you only stick with cold, hard logic. You refuse to empathize with anyone because you want to be the top dog. You’re pessimistic and rude, setting your expectations low so you can avoid disappointment. You’re blunt and prideful, and you don’t care if you hurt feelings, believing everyone else is just too sensitive.

Aquarius

Best: You’re encouraging and interesting, opening up people’s eyes to new ways of seeing the world. You have a soft heart for social justice issues and you do your part in helping with whatever you can. You’re supportive and inspirational to your loved ones, pushing them to see themselves the way you do. You’re ingenuitive and clever, able to take your ideas and put them into action. You’re unconventional and confident, unafraid of being unapologetically yourself.

Worst: You see the world as a place full of terrible and hypocritical people, and you pass judgment on anyone around you who doesn’t agree with your strong convictions. You feel as if relationships only hold you back, so you keep yourself emotionally unavailable to people in your life. You refuse to ever do things in a traditional way, which leads you to be critical of anyone who does. You talk a big game on how others should be helpful when you rarely get out of your own head to do it yourself.

Pisces

Best: You’re empathetic and intuitive, able to connect with people on an emotional level with ease. You’re relaxed and have a positive outlook on life. You don’t get stressed out by the small things, and you know how to be there for people when they need someone to talk to. You’re selfless and considerate, and you don’t simply tolerate other people’s needs, but you thrive in helping them. You think of others before yourself, though you don’t forget your own needs in the process.

Worst: You’re indecisive and confusing in your communication. You say one thing but then do another. You are drawn to people who make you feel needed, putting you in toxic situations often. You can be manipulative and conniving, with your ability to understand people on a different level than most. You know how to make a person vulnerable and you are capable of exploiting that knowledge to make yourself seem important. You are never certain if you’re making the right choice, so you rarely remain faithful or consistent in your relationships with others.

Whether you’re always single or always in a relationship, people will have something to say about it. The fact of the matter is that some people do better in a relationship while others thrive on their own. This can change throughout our lives while neither is necessarily a bad thing. Whichever category you do or don’t fall into, matters only to you.

We judge those who fall into relationships at the same pace they fall out of relationships, but the greater dissection comes for those perched in their own lane. It’s easier to judge someone without a partner compared to someone with a partner. Still, no matter the circumstance, single people are tired of hearing the same single-advice lines over and over again.

Here are 10 things you need to stop saying to your single friends:

1. “You’ll find someone eventually.”

It’s hard to respond to this without an eye roll, but however you phrase it, your friend knows that you’re probably not a psychic and cannot tell the future. Whether or not your friend finds someone is irrelevant at the moment because there’s no point in giving attention to what you don’t have and if you will or won’t have it someday.

2. “You need to try dating apps.”

Dating apps work for some people, but they weren’t made for the majority. Dating apps have an invisible barrier, incapable of a natural start. Any personality of introvert or extrovert is capable of sparking authentic communication with people they’ve chosen to let in without the crutch of a smartphone application.

3. “You need to put yourself out there more.”

Your friend needs to put themselves out there as much as they want to put themselves out there. Don’t pressure them to force things because when their output in unnatural, the response will likely be the same.

4. “There’s nothing wrong with being single.”

Some things are better left unsaid, this being one of them. A single person only thinks there is something wrong when you halfheartedly try to convince them that there is nothing wrong with their single status in a persuasive yet condescending tone.

5. “Open yourself up to the idea of a relationship.”

This mindset is for people that fall in love with the idea of a relationship, no matter the person. For someone who desires depth, they’ll open themselves up when the person is right. A single person doesn’t need to open themselves up to an idea of a relationship, they need to open themselves up to a person that’s worthy of their vulnerability.

6. “You should date this person I know, they’re single too.”

Anyone can pair up for the sake of being in a relationship. But someone single is likely waiting for a connection deserving of their time and energy. Don’t assume that your single friend is desperate enough to link up with the first single person you bring up.

7. “You’re so close to finding someone.”

This implies there was a time that your friend wasn’t in the running and now suddenly they are. Finding a real connection that makes a person want to enter a relationship doesn’t happen according to a specific timeline so don’t imply that your friend is on deck to become the next person to get in a relationship. You’re only projecting what you think your friend wants.

8. “You’re too good-looking to be single.”

So ugly people deserve to be alone? And who determines which people are ugly and which ones are too pretty to be single? Physical attraction is situational and interpreted differently by any person.

9.  “Go talk to that person over there.”

If your single friend wants to go and speak to someone, they will. If they don’t want to, they won’t. They don’t need you pushing them into a forced interaction.

10. “I got into a relationship when I least expected it, the same thing will happen to you.”

Implying that your experience will be replicated to someone else’s is foolish. The same thing won’t happen to your friend because our experiences are unique to us, in and outside of relationships.

All in all, your friend’s relationship is their business, and the only thing they need from you is love and support. If they want your advice or opinion, they’ll ask for it. They likely don’t think about the fact they’re even single until their friend, probably in a relationship, brings it up.

Being single is not a death sentence, so don’t treat it like one.

When you love someone, you shouldn’t take anything sweet they do for you for granted, even if they’ve done it a million times before. You should continue to show them your appreciation long after the puppy love phase is over. You should make sure they realize just how much you care about them, how much you respect them, how much you love them.

When you love someone, you shouldn’t go too long without saying please or thank you or I love you. You shouldn’t make your partner wonder whether everything they’ve been doing is for nothing, whether you even notice all of the effort they’ve been putting into your relationship. You shouldn’t give them a single reason to believe you’ve grown bored of them or are neglecting them.

When you love someone, you give them validation. You congratulate them on even their smallest victories. You help them feel good about themselves. You remind them how much work they’ve put into everything they do, you let them know how much you appreciate their effort, and you remind them to be proud of themselves.

When you love someone, you don’t pick apart their dreams. You don’t discourage them from trying new things. You don’t make them feel like they’re stuck in the same place. You encourage them to chase after their desires. You encourage them to reach their full potential. You support them in everything they strive to accomplish. You push them toward success, toward a better future.

When you love someone, you freely show them affection. You hold their hand in public. You kiss their cheek and their forehead. You make sure they realize how lucky you feel to have them. You make sure they realize you’re proud to be seen with them.

When you love someone, you remind them of their potential. When they’re feeling bad about themselves, you give them reasons to smile again. You comfort them after their failures and losses. You remind them one setback isn’t the end of the world. You remind them how tough they are and how they’re going to get through this with you.

When you love someone, you should give them a wide range of compliments. You should tell them how you’re feeling as soon as the thought pops into your mind. You might assume your partner already knows how you feel, but it’s always nice to hear the words aloud, which is why you should never keep your emotions inside. You should never hold back your kindness.

When you love someone, you don’t take from them without giving anything in return. You don’t feel flattered by all of their attention without doling out attention of your own. You make sure to return the effort they put into the relationship. You make sure you’re showing them just as much love as they’re always showing you. You make sure everything is equal, that you’re a true team.

When you love someone, you should show appreciation for them. You should make sure they know exactly how much they mean to you. TC mark
