In 1835, at the age of 13, a young boy walked nearly 300 miles to Paris; he worked odd jobs and did whatever it took to survive. He eventually learned a craft: box making. Before long, the young boy had earned enough to open his own box-making store. The tale may seem a bit unremarkable until you consider the boy’s name: Louis Vuitton. You know the brand, but not the man; take a look at the genius that created one of the most recognizable brands in the world with this biography.
"The fashion industry is a serious sector of the global economy. Fashion is a dynamic business; trends change fast and companies need to react fast. Having a fashion brand requires not only good taste and a love for fashion, but also good business, financial, and strategic skills. It is crucial for fashion companies to be aware that the brand they have is their most valuable asset and, as such, it needs to be protected. Having a clear, comprehensive, and effective brand protection strategy from the very beginning will save nerves, time, and money if and when trouble comes. In 2014, Louis Vuitton, the Paris-based fashion house, filed suit in the Southern District of New York against the Los Angeles-based company-My Other Bag (MOB). Louis Vuitton based its suit on the claim that MOB designs not only infringe Louis Vuitton federally registered trademarks and copyrights, but that MOB was diluting its famous trademarks and raised the claims of false designation of origin/unfair competition. Using the above case between Louis Vuitton and My Other Bag students will analyze firstly, what assets of business enterprise can be protected by the brand, and secondly the steps that the brand owner can undertake to protect their brand. On the basis of the above case students will be able to explore when and why fashion brands need to take legal action, and analyze and reflect on whether taking legal action always makes good business sense."--Bloomsbury Publishing.
"Such celebrations of automotive history and design are recalled here with magnificent photographs and previously unpublished documents, revealing the world of the automobile in all its glory."--BOOK JACKET.
Two decades of fashion history in the making, told through a sumptuous array of images straight from the catwalk Founded as a luxury leather goods house in 1854, Louis Vuitton was for many decades one of the world's leading trunk and accessories makers. It was through the launch of its first fashion collections, however, that the house reached unprecedented fame, becoming one of the most influential and valuable luxury brands in the world. This definitive publication is the first to provide an overview of Louis Vuitton's influential designs. It opens with a concise history of the house, followed by brief profiles of designers Marc Jacobs and Nicolas Ghesqui�re, before exploring the collections themselves. Organized chronologically, each collection is introduced by a short text unveiling its influences and highlights, and illustrated with carefully curated catwalk images. The volume showcases hundreds of spectacular clothes, details, accessories, beauty looks, and set designs--and, of course, the top fashion models who wore them on the runway. An essential book for anyone interested in fashion, Louis Vuitton offers a complete and unrivaled picture of the collections of the world's top fashion house through original catwalk photography.
A beautifully illustrated journey through the history of travel--and traveling in style--from one of the world's preeminent fashion brands The mid-19th and early 20th centuries heralded new means of transport and equipment and, with them, new and original ways of exploring the world. Transatlantic liners, automobiles, long-haul airplanes, zeppelins, and express trains unfurled new horizons and changed travel itself into an adventure. Distant lands were no longer solely accessible to aristocrats, explorers, and adventurers. Instead, the world opened up to new groups of people eager to circumvent the globe. And for many of these new globetrotters, traveling was synonymous with Louis Vuitton, the French label whose iconic and functional luggage trunks could be found on nearly every boat, plane, car, and train around the world. In this beautiful book, author Francisca Mattéoli recounts 50 tales of thrilling travel undertaken in every possible mode of transit, from the hot air balloon to the space shuttle, each lavishly illustrated with more than 300 historical photographs and ephemera from Louis Vuitton's official archives. Louis Vuitton: Extraordinary Voyages is a journey all its own--an evocative and transporting account of the most surprising and transformative trips taken since the 19th century.
Trains and steamships transformed transportation in the mid-19th century and opened the world to a new breed of traveler. Louis Vuitton understood the need for more practical luggage, and strove to create products that were adaptable to all situations—and the travel trunk was born. Authors Pierre Léonforte and Éric Pujalet-Plaà curate 100 of the finest trunks the Louis Vuitton company has produced on commission, including boxes made for movie stars from Douglas Fairbanks to Sharon Stone and couturiers from Jeanne Lanvin to Karl Lagerfeld, as well as cases designed for Ernest Hemingway, Leopold Stokowski, and Damien Hirst. Illustrated with 600 images taken from the Louis Vuitton archives and new photographs made especially for this book, this is the definitive history of personalized objects of both practicality and luxury.
An exploration of the dynamic and innovative architecture and interiors commissioned by Louis Vuitton. A prescient advocate of contemporary interiors and architecture, Louis Vuitton continues to encourage innovation and playfulness in the designs of their retail spaces without losing sight of the essence of luxury central to its identity. This process of designing places to display high-style objects has created a new venue for cutting-edge architecture and transformed city streetscapes. This exploration of Louis Vuitton's international stores, as well as industrial sites and unrealized projects, includes interviews with some of today's most talented architects and designers who discuss the beautiful and complex structures they have produced in collaboration with Louis Vuitton. This book examines the physical aspects of these buildings as well as the ideas that went into their composition. Acting as both a backdrop for luxurious retail goods and the physical manifestation of the brand, these spaces are a genre unto themselves that invite exploration. With luxurious finishes and unexpected textures, these fantastic buildings represent the intersection of fashion and interior design. The book includes interviews with Jun Aoki, Peter Marino, Christian de Portzamparc, David McNulty, and Christian Reyne.
The Fondation Louis Vuitton by Frank O. Gehry rises from the Bois de Boulogne as a new landmark in the Parisian skyline. Gehry’s dynamic architecture is both glittering and multifaceted: is it a sailing vessel, an iceberg, or a sea monster? It fascinates with its wealth of references and, at the same time, escapes any clear-cut definition. Three outstanding representatives of different generations of art history, James S. Ackerman (†), Irving Lavin, and Horst Bredekamp have together paid a visit to the Fondation Louis Vuitton. They explore the building in three richly illustrated essays that try to fathom the floating architecture of the "magician" Gehry in the context of both art and architectural history.
The windows of Louis Vuitton's storefronts are magnetic. Onlookers stand with eyes wide in wonder at such spectacles as a colossal roller coaster, a panoply of brightly colored hot-air balloons, or a universe of polka dots. With an oeuvre of over thirty-five displays, creators Faye McLeod and Ansel Thompson bring the windows of one of the world's leading luxury brands to life with unparalleled magic. Featuring an introduction by The New York Times fashion director and critic Vanessa Friedman, these celebrated vitrines are presented as works of art in this hand-bound oversize Ultimate Collection edition, capturing the inspired world that is Louis Vuitton.

The Louis Vuitton label was founded by Vuitton in 1854 on Rue Neuve des Capucines in Paris. In 1858, Vuitton introduced his flat-bottom trunks with trianon canvas, making them lightweight and airtight. Before the introduction of Vuitton's trunks, rounded-top trunks were used, generally to promote water run off, and thus could not be stacked. It was Vuitton's gray Trianon canvas flat trunk that allowed the ability to stack with ease for voyages. Becoming successful and prestigious, many other luggagemakers began to imitate LV's style and design. In the courtyard of the Vuitton...

In 1976, Kyojiro Hata joined Louis Vuitton to take over the reigns of a brand that at that time lacked any identity and was underdeveloped. In a few short years he turned it into the most sought after brand in Japan, and participated from Asia in giving Louis Vuitton a new breath of energy. At the same time, he created a new business model that has come to be used by many other brands wanting to enter the Japanese market. On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the famous brand, Kyojiro Hata explains for the first time the brilliant vision that guided him in this exemplary success story.
