Strolling past Louis Vuitton on a warm summer night, the gent spied a bag in the shopfront window that spelled out L-O-V-E, which in life, unlike tennis, means everything. When it is featured in this window, one needn't worry if it is the genuine article. Perhaps strolling past that window was just the sign he was waiting for. . . Vuitton kicked off the summer season with a Party of Love, featuring this bag, to benefit OXFAM America. OXFAM has recently sponsored consumer champaigns to lobby Target stores about marketing "dirty gold," and Starbucks regarding fair trade issues with Ethiopian farmers. Starbucks recently signed an historic agreement with the Ethiopian farmers as a result.
