Whether you were born here are are just mov-ing in, New York city is full of nooks and crannies that everyone should know about and that are never men-tionned in touristy guides - thank the lord. Every New Yorker has his/her favorite spots that they want to share (or keep to themselves) but ei-ther way, we thought it was grand time for the rest of the world to find out about these city gems. This month, Louise Steyaert, gives us a photo album review of her top NY spots and best memories. Follow her footsteps...

Marc Jacobss spring 2011 Louis Vuitton show may have seemed at first like a clear appeal to that region of the world China thats on everyone in the luxury-fashion businesss lips right now. LVMH, along with pretty much everyone else, is expanding in Asia, and Jacobss Vuitton show, with strikingly literal Chinese influences, looked like a clear nod to that. However, Jacobs said after his likewise Asian-inflected Louis Vuitton mens show in June that prob-ably the least appealing thing review of the collection, Its debatable whether

Torsten Stocker of Monitor Group, a global strategy consulting firm with offices in Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong, observed that with cli-ched elements that reflect a Western image of what Chinese design looks like, Jacobss SS2011 collections may not truly appeal to Chinese consumers. While the clothes might be good for a Chinese star to wear in a Western set-

Noting that many of the looks could be achieved after an the Louis Vuitton boutique less than ten minutes away would save the stress of haggling.
