Sophie Boldly Visits Paris

Sophie Boldly Visits Paris

In Paris, golden hues are most prevalent, from the stone used for many of its monumental buildings to the golden glitter of the street lights and the sparkle of the Eiffel Tower. The changing seasons provide an array of natural color at the Jardin du Luxembourg and Jardin des Tuileries. Not to mention the colorful clothes worn by its fashionable residents. LUC8K is all about fashion and color (“Live Your Color” is its motto) and so is Sophie. She is very much at home in this magnificent city strolling along the boulevards, sitting outside the cafes, enjoying the endless number of bistros, and of course shopping. She visits the hippest store in the city, Colette. The stark white interior with...

Sophie’s Bucket List

Sophie’s Bucket List

Italy, the long, narrow stretch of land that hangs off southern Europe has everything: miles upon miles of mountains and beaches, along with expansive farmland that serve as the foundation for one of the world’s great cuisines. The Italian people vigorously work to preserve its cultural, architectural and artistic heritage while leaping into the future. This is wholly evident in its largest and most famous cities, where modern society flows freely within many of the most famous monuments of western civilization. Sophie happily entered the country through the maddening Milan–Malpensa Airport and immediately realizes that there is no Italian translation for the word, “queue.” But she eventually makes it out of the airport and into the city of Milan. Italy...

Sophie Goes To Rio 2016

Brazil is a country of extreme poverty and enormous wealth, hardships and beauty, vibrancy and crime, enormous cities, and pristine forests. Through it, all Brazilians are united by the spirit of celebration. Even when they protest (which is often) they celebrate. They live in the moment and live the best they can in this diverse, complex, ethnically mixed country. With the Rio 2016 Olympics, the Brazilians zest for celebration has gone global as international visitors share in the delights and dangers of this crazy, colorful, collage of a country.

Sophie Seeking Answers The Only Way She Knows How

Sophie Seeking Answers The Only Way She Knows How

Travel writer Paul Theroux once wrote that the best and most interesting time to visit a country was during times of unrest and revolution. It’s difficult to imagine that Sophie had this in mind when she decided to visit Manila but she is here now during a time when the country is in the midst of a democratic revolution. Rodrigo Duterte, known for operating “death squads” to curb crime, joking about the gang rape of tourists and antagonizing world leaders as mayor of Davao City in the southern Philippines, was just sworn in as the country’s duly elected president. Yes he is a controversial selection and his methods are cruel and brutal but they have been successful in a country...

Land of Opportunity

Sophie travels from one concrete jungle to another. Singapore is only 350 kilometers away from Kuala Lumpur, have the same ethnic mix of citizens, but they are different in many ways. Singapore is a modern and efficient city very well organized and business-friendly. Its streets and sidewalks are immaculately clean. It is a far cry from the somewhat chaotic streets of Kuala Lumpur. Even the street food is organized into clean and comfortable hawker centers, which are beloved among its citizens and tourists. Sophie loves these collections of food vendors paying for each treat using her LUC8K leather wallet and saving her leftovers in her customized leather tote. However, it does lack the spontaneity that made Kuala Lumpur so much fun. The modern-day...

Sophie Is Our Favourite Client And Spokeswoman!

In a world of ever-changing fashion and trends, Sophie’s appearance is distinct and unique. She is tall and slender with long legs and curves in all the right places.

Not Sophie. Armed with her customized LUC8K bags and accessories she lives the jet-set life.

Being the tallest mammal on the planet has its advantages. No one understands this more than Sophie. Her long legs can travel great distances quickly.
