Manny is one of Keeks’ newer staff members, having only been with us a few months at our Northeast Mall location, and his love for the finer things has him in exactly the right place! Not only does he have a great eye for style, but he has a great eye for the visual in general—photography has been his passion for a long time.
As far as fashion goes, Manny leans toward the iconic; Louis Vuitton and Versace are two of his favorite designers for that reason.
We asked Manny about his gateway to luxury…
“My first designer bag was a Louis Vuitton Keepall 50…my husband bought it for me! I love it…it’s my baby!”
So clearly Manny also has great taste in husbands as well as designers.
What’s more, Manny knows the excitement that comes from receiving the right luxury gift, and his enthusiasm for helping others get the designer items of their dreams shows.
When Manny greets you in store…
He’ll first ask you if you’re after anything specific, then he’ll inquire about your favorite designers, and then orient you toward any specific style you like best.
His advice to shoppers?
Know the market. “I wish people understood the quality of luxury resale.” Even though items may be pre-owned, he says that many “…customers do not realize that these designers retain their value.”
So what’s Manny got his eye on in the store right now?
Louis Vuitton, of course. Specifically, he points to the roomy Louis Vuitton Keepall 45 in both Damier Carbone and Damier Graphite. The patterns caught his eye. Though they’re similar, they’re distinct.
The darker Damier Carbone is a take on Louis Vuitton’s classic checkered canvas with carbon threads woven in. The alternating diagonal lines in each square almost create a herringbone pattern. The Damier Graphite squares, however, switch between a vertical woven and almost pebbled look.
Manny loves them for travel. They’re the perfect size for carry-ons, and you can’t beat the look.
