Louis Vuitton Designer Profile

The Evolution of Louis Vuitton

Over the past few years, the Louis Vuitton label has become extremely prominent in the fashion industry. One of the most prestigious luxury labels in the business, Louis Vuitton handbags are sold for thousands of dollars a piece. Although the popularity of the label has just recently become overwhelming, the business has been successful for over 100 years and has gone through 3 generations of the Vuitton family.

In 1987, just years before its overwhelming boost in popularity, Louis Vuitton merged with Moet Hennessy, another highly known luxury goods company. Together these two companies developed one of the most respected companies in the entire fashion industry.

LVMH (Moet Hennessy – Louis Vuitton) currently owns some of the most popular labels including DKNY (Donna Karan New York), Emilio Pucci and Christian Dior. LVMH also remains as one of the largest fashion houses in the world and is expected to overtake many other designer labels in the years to come.

Louis Vuitton’s Signature Style

Louis Vuitton has a very recognizable signature style. You can tell if a handbag or piece of luggage is Louis Vuitton simply by the way they look. The most popular Louis Vuitton Handbag, the monogram model with "LV" printed in pink, red, yellow and green colors with an assortment of other shapes on a white background, has become the choice handbag for iconic celebrities like Jessica Simpson and Madonna. Another popular design in the Louis Vuitton collection is the cherry pattern. This pattern is a top choice for other world renowned celebrities like Milas Kunis and Lindsay Lohan.

In addition to their extremely popular handbag collection, Louis Vuitton also offers a wide variety of luggage, doggie bags (large handbags to tote around puppies), footwear, wallets and other accessories. Marc Jacobs recently released Louis Vuitton’s first line of ready-to-wear clothing.
