Louis Vuitton founded the company in 1854 in Asnières, home to both the company and the family since 1859. When Georges, Louis’s son, joined the business, travel became a hot topic in the leather goods market, and stores were opened in London and New York. His descendants have always succeeded in preserving the brand’s luxury image, with new models remaining true to the brand’s core values. The invention of the revolutionary “LV monogram” coated canvas, which was waterproof, supple, and durable, earned the brand a worldwide reputation for quality. While retaining its exceptional expertise, Louis Vuitton has expanded its activities to cover ready-to-wear fashion, accessories, watches, and jewelry. When Marc Jacobs was appointed as artistic director, he lent his young and innovative style to the fashion house, and the brand ambassadors that he brought made him the ideal choice to head up the label’s design. From Scarlett Johansson to Charlotte Gainsbourg, and from Michelle Williams to David Bowie and Uma Thurman, the Louis Vuitton brand has continued its ascent in the world of fashion.
Marc Jacobs was succeeded by Nicolas Ghesquière as Artistic Director of women’s collections. In December 2014, the designer was named best international designer of the year by the British Fashion Awards.
Combining both classical style and eccentricity, Louis Vuitton offers a range of timelessly elegant designs. Will you give in to temptation and opt for jewelry, an accessory or perhaps a bag from Louis Vuitton?
