My adoration for Louis Vuitton â¤ï¸ðŸ‡«ðŸ‡·

May 11, 2016

I am a like any lady, I love nice things, bags, shoes, scarves. If they are from the iconic French brand Louis Vuitton I don’t just love them, I absolutely adore them.

Why you may ask? Is a bag not a bag? Why pay so much money for something which you can get for much cheaper to do the exact same job, carry your belongings around. It’s not just about carrying you belongings though. It’s knowing that a masterpiece created by, in my opinion, one of the world’s best handbag makers, is holding your belongings!

In Paris ❤️


I was lucky enough to visit Paris last weekend. In Paris pretty much everyone has a Louis Vuitton bag, big or small, it adds a little je ne sais quoi to your outfit.

The hotel we stayed in was once the atelier of Louis Vuitton himself, based one street away from the Champs Elysees.

The History behind the Iconic Brand – (taken from Wikipedia)

Louis Vuitton was founded by Vuitton in 1854 on Rue Neuve des Capucines in Paris, France. Louis Vuitton had observed that the HJ Cave Osilite trunk could be easily stacked and 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 so could not be stacked. It was Vuitton’s gray Trianon canvas flat trunk that allowed the ability to stack with ease for voyages.

 In 1896, the company launched the signature Monogram Canvas and made the worldwide patents on it. Its graphic symbols, including quatrefoils and flowers (as well as the LV monogram), were based on the trend of using Japanese and Oriental designs in the late Victorian era.

By 1913, the Louis Vuitton Building opened on the Champs-Elysees. It was the largest travel-goods store in the world at the time. Stores also opened in New York, Bombay, Washington, London, Alexandria, and Buenos Aires as World War I began. 

Afterwards, in 1930, the Keepall bag was introduced. During 1932, LV introduced the Noé bag. This bag was originally made for champagne vintners to transport bottles. Soon thereafter, the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag was introduced (both are still manufactured today).

My Love of LV – 

The reason why I love LV so much is not only because of it’s classical design but also because I tend to wear very plain colours – black, navy or brown. So my LV bag adds that little bit of pattern and design to an outfit which may otherwise be plain.

As a little tip, if you are flying internationally from Heathrow, you can get LV goods duty free if you are flying to a destination outside Europe. It is definitely a big discount off the regular price.
