Established in 1854, bespoke trunk maker Louis Vuitton expanded into ready-to wear in 1997. The brand’s signature monogram – an interlocking L and V initials and floral pattern – was designed by Louis Vuitton’s son, Georges Vuitton, in 1896, and is now one of the most recognisable insignias in the world. Nicolas Ghesquière has been artistic director of the Parisian maison’s womenswear since 2013, and Virgil Abloh was appointed menswear artistic director of the house in 2018. Here you’ll find reviews and round-ups, from everything covering ready-to-wear to runway design, to the brand’s Objets Nomades furniture and homeware collection and opulent retail history.
