Louis Vuitton trunks? What, for swimming? No. Not for swimming. For holding and carrying your personals with you. In style. That’s where it all started. And that’s where we’re going now.
In a quiet neighbourhood in the northwest suburbs of Paris is one of those typical French blue enamel street signs bearing the address Rue Louis Vuitton. This is the family home of the famous trunk maker where the modern day workshop reflects on 164 years of design history.
Today the brand of Louis Vuitton is the epitome of sophistication, luxury and glamour. But when it began in the 1850s it was founded on hard work, blisters and sweat.
