Behind the Brand: Founded in 1854, Louis Vuitton Malletier is the French fashion house known around the world. The first Louis Vuitton piece was the flat-surface trunk, designed by Mr. Vuitton himself as a practical alternative to heavier, round-top trunks. Unlike other models, the Vuitton trunk could be conveniently stacked for travel. Today, the Louis Vuitton brand encompasses a wide range of luxury products, including luggage, handbags, and ready-to-wear. The brand is poised to maintain its status as a high fashion leader and innovator: In November 2013, Louis Vuitton announced Nicolas Ghesquiere (formerly of Balenciaga) as the company's new artistic director for women's collections.
Trivia: Louis Vuitton's Monogram Canvas design -- a style icon unto itself -- is almost 120 years old. The company introduced the pattern in 1896, just a few years after Louis Vuitton products were shown at the Chicago World's Fair. The pattern's distinctive quatrefoils and flowers reflect the Asian-influenced design elements of the Victorian Era.
