The History of Louis Vuitton
Founded in 1854 by skilled craftsman and designer Louis Vuitton, the luxury brand had humble beginnings as a workshop in Paris, specialising in travel trunks. Vuitton’s innovative flat trunk line quickly gained popularity for their waterproof and lightweight designs. The brand’s signature LV monogram, quatrefoil and flower design—introduced by the founder’s son, Georges Vuitton in 1896—became a symbol of luxury travel and refinement.
The fashion house’s foray into luxury leather goods began in the early 20th century, with wallets, purses, and, of course, iconic handbag designs such as the Alma, Keepall, Noé and Papillon. The brand’s journey has been one of perpetual refinement, with the esteemed Marc Jacobs taking the helm as creative director in 1997, propelling Louis Vuitton into the realm of ready-to-wear fashion and unveiling their exquisite jewellery collection and marking yet another chapter of unparalleled luxury.
Today, Louis Vuitton continues to expand its global presence and influence in the world of fashion. The brand held its first-ever fashion show in South Korea in April 2023, showcasing the year’s pre-fall collection, further solidifying Louis Vuitton’s status as a luxury fashion powerhouse.
