The Limited Edition SC Bag by Sofia Coppola and Louis Vuitton

The Bling Ring director has teamed up with French fashion house Louis Vuitton to unveil a new limited edition version of the iconic 2009 S.C. bag, available to buy exclusively from the Bon Marche Rive Gauche in Paris. 

The link between Sofia Coppola and Louis Vuitton is something of a love story. A close friend of creative director Marc Jacobs, the director posed of the brand's luxury luggage line ad campaign shot by Annie Leibovitz alongside her father Francis Ford Coppola in 2008. A longtime lover of fashion, Sofia visited the historic Louis Vuitton workshops in Asnieres, near Paris, with the intention of placing an oder but, inspired by the Speedy and Keepall models she ended up designing her dream bag, the SC. Since then the calfskin leather bag has known great success as a model in its own right. This season the SC has been given a rainbow-clolored update withe the addition of an extra long shoulder strap and will be available to buy in a smaller size. And it doesn't end there, Sofia Coppola and Louis Vuitton have something else up their sleeve to celebrate the bag's 2013 comeback: a special edition of the SC bag exclusively designed for the Bon Marche Rive Gauche: the designer's favorite shopping stop-off when in Paris. Available in the classic size as well as the smaller BB model, the new bag boasts fuchsia pink color pop pipping meticulously applied by Louis Vuitton artisans echoing its similarly vibrant lining. A real gem available to buy from September 21 at the Bon Marche, Ru de Sevres Paris.

Forbes: Champagne Anti-Anging Regiment

Champagne Anti-Aging Regiment Could Improve Memory, Research Suggests
 photo dnews-files-2013-05-drinking-champagne-improves-memory-660-jpg_zps94279bd8.jpg
New research indicates that moderate Champagne (or any sparkling wine) consumption has a positive effect on memory as we age; now isn’t that the good news you’ve been waiting for? According to researchers at the UK’s Reading University, specific polyphenol compounds in red grapes are believed to improve spatial memory and assist in memory storage. These phenols slow the loss of proteins (a loss commonly associated with aging) that are responsible for storing memory.  Red wine is known to have these phenols, but researchers weren’t so sure about bubbly.

Researchers gave some lucky rats champagne-laced food while the control group of rats was merely offered ordinary food. They then placed the rats in a maze in search of food. Five minutes later they placed the rats in the same maze to see which group best remembered the location of the food. The ritzy rats with Champagne-laced food had a 70% success rate over the ordinary food rats (who had a mere 50% success rate). After six weeks of Champagne with dinner, the Champagne rats showed a 200% increase in memory-boosting proteins.  So, the news is good: Champagne made with red grapes (sometimes referred to as ‘blanc de noir’) has a high phenolic content.  However, Champagne made with white grapes, known as ‘blanc de blanc,’ does not boast as high a phenolic content so read your label carefully. It’s worth noting that any sparkling wine made from red grapes qualifies as high in phenolics, whether it’s sparkling Shiraz or sparkling Oregon Pinot Noir.  For medical purposes I recommend sticking to Champagne; if you’re going to do this, then do it right.

The other good news: In a December 2009 study, Champagne was also identified as improving heart health and reducing risk of stroke.

His art is compared with floating miniature mountains. He himself sees emptiness and fills it. In the film the Japanese artist, Yasuaki Onishi, depicts the flowing lines of the Mercedes-Benz CLA -creating a sense of lightness, aesthetics and impressive work of art.
