Founded in 1854, Louis Vuitton is just as cutting-edge a fashion company now as it was then. It is hard to believe that the core business of this “malletier” was exclusively the production of suitcases for well over a century. The prêt-à-porter line has only existed since 1997.
Silk scarf, bag, key fob, bracelet – Des & Jen about their wish list:
“For us, Louis Vuitton is a special luxury/high-end fashion label because we associate the brand with our first designer handbag. Our mother gave us the Pochette Accessoires NM Monogram Canvas for our birthday a few years ago – definitely a classic handbag. Which is why we have also decided on the Petite Malle in Monogram, the belt and key fob: all of these products continue the historic tradition of the label (bearing the monogram and inspired by its iconic suitcases).The silk scarf reminds us of the women in our family, who always wore silk scarves on a variety of occasions. We think of the silk scarf as a classic accessory: it has the unique gift of enhancing the wearer’s personality and personalizing their look.”
