Louis Vuitton was a French box-maker and packer who founded the luxury brand of the same name over 150 years ago. From humble beginnings in the French countryside, Vuitton’s skill, innovation and determination quickly saw his signature trunks coveted by the world’s elite.
Now, with Marc Jacobs at the helm as creative director since 1997, the house has expanded its offering to include bags, clothing, shoes, accessories and jewelry, making it one of the most valuable luxury brands in the world. (Vogue, 2009)
Why so I love the brand so much? Hmm, where to start? Well, first of all, there’s something magical and timeless about Louis Vuitton. The romantic and avant-garde culture of Paris is deeply imbedded within this fashion house. Oh, and I also admire their love for the art of fashion design by always thinking outside of the box. Their motto could easily be “Conformity never serves creativity” and they wouldn’t be lying.
This label knows how to lead the industry by example. With their unique pairings of colors, textures and pieces, they consistently deliver at runway shows. And if that’s not enough, aside from being trendy, quality is also a trademark of Louis Vuitton. Their dedication to craftsmanship is quite superb or as the French say “magnifique”!
So, if those aren’t enough reason to fall in love with Louis, how about I show you instead?
Maintenant, si cela ne vous faire tomber en amour avec Louis, vous n’avez pas de cœur. Kiss Kiss.
Jusqu’à la prochaine fois.
