Trained as a luggage packer for wealthy Parisian families, Louis Vuitton opened his first store in Paris in 1854, soon after he had introduced a revolutionary new steamer trunk using leather and lightweight gray Trianon canvas. Before these flat-top trunks, travelers used round-top trunks, which deflected water, but could not be stacked. Vuitton's luggage was a success among world-traveling aristocrats, such as French empress Eugénie.

The now-renowned luxury goods company opened its first store in London in the 1880s. To combat knockoffs, it replaced the Trianon with beige-and-brown checkerboard Damier canvas, with a monogram reading "marque L. Vuitton deposee," meaning "L. Vuitton registered trademark." After Vuitton died in 1892, his son, George, took the helm, and led the company to international success.

George created the iconic Monogram gold-on-brown canvas with the quatrefoils, flowers, and "LV" logos. Based on Asian-inspired designs that were popular with Europeans in the Victorian Era, the design was launched in 1896 and patented globally. In 1901, the company introduced the Steamer Bag, a little piece of luggage meant to be carried inside larger trunks. Some consider it an early predecessor to the handbag.

In 1913, Vuitton opened the world's biggest luggage store in Paris, as well as boutiques around the world. The bags, recognized as status symbols thanks to their immediately recognizable Monogram print, got progressively smaller and more flexible, and in 1930, Louis Vuitton produced the Keepall, a smaller travel bag with two handles.

Its first popular handbag, the bucket-shape, drawstring-top Noe, was actually designed to hold champagne bottles when it was introduced in 1932. The 1930s Speedy, however, was designed as a purse, with a zippered top and heavy leather handles. Both featured the LV Monogram as their pattern.

World War II is a murkier period in the company's history. A 2004 book by Stephanie Bonvicini asserts that the Louis Vuitton company, under the leadership of his grandson, Gaston-Louis Vuitton, cooperated with Nazis while France was occupied by Germany during the war. But these allegations have not been made until recently.

In the 1950s, the Monogram canvas was redesigned as a more supple material for suitcases, purses, and wallets. By the 1960s, counterfeiters were going wild trying to copy this famous print, an issue the company has struggled with ever since.
The 1980s saw Louis Vuitton sponsoring its own yacht race, the Louis Vuitton Cup, and also expanding deeper into Asia. Its famed lightweight and supple Epi leather line appeared in 1985. Later in the decade, the firm consolidated with high-end liquor companies Moët Chandon and Hennessy to form luxury lifestyle behemoth LVMH.

In recent years, designers have had fun playing with the Monogram canvas, from making it smaller, as in the 1999 mini monogram line, to covering it with graffiti, as Stephen Sprouse and Marc Jacobs did in 2001. In 2003, Jacobs and Takashi Murakami came up with the Multicolored Monogram in 33 different colors on a white or black background. Murakami also invented the limited-edition Cherry Blossom pattern, which interspersed cartoon faces in pink and yellow flowers.

The company, whose travel bags are still made by hand, is popular with modern-day celebrities such as Elizabeth Hurley, Sharon Stone, Kanye West, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and the Beckhams.

LOUIS VUITTON FALL WINTER RUNWAY BAG

CATEGORIES:Louis Vuitton

Ever since Nicolas Ghesquière has joined Louis Vuitton, he reinvents beautiful and unique pieces for the Parisian brand. This season he has done it again with a number of new styles. The Fall/Winter 2016 Collection features a sporty look using many of the classic bag styles. The iconic Speedy is back this season and comes with Louis Vuitton badges. The mini trunks also makes a return which now includes a shoulder strap and available in two sizes. The popular Petite Malle and Twist Bags comes with a strap that have handles wrapped in scarves. Another travel bag makes it to the runway which has similarities to the Cruiser Bag with a large Vuitton printed on it. The bag collection presents the signature Monogram Canvas in Crocodile, Leopard Print and Metallic Hologram. Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-2 Louis Vuitton’s Fall/Winter 2016 Bag Runway Collection did not fail to disappoint with drool-worthy, jaw-dropping bag pieces. Nicolas Ghesquière, the creative director behind this favorite French fashion powerhouse, knows his game so well that his mastery of his craft is all evident and visible from each bag piece. Ever since he appeared in the fashion scene and handled LV since 2013, he is seen being all-hands in making the brand adaptable so as it could cater to the millennials as well. For the Fall/Winter 2016 Bag Runaway Collection, LV lovers and fans will definitely be mesmerized by the big range of handbags from crocodile totes, tiny backpacks, holographic trunks to the traditional leopard prints. There is this small bucket bag that has captured our hearts and attention for it is something we’ve never seen before. A unique design, this bag is seen sporting the famous monogram LV logo + some classic black color. For the luggage box bag, it took its inspiration from the iconic LV classic luggage. A short history recap, LV had its humble beginnings in 1854 when Vuitton himself introduced his trunks with trianon canvas. Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-3
Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-4 At the end of a long month of shows, editors and buyers make superlative lists. Tallying things up, Nicolas Ghesquière gets high marks for his Louis Vuitton collection. One of the best shows of the season, it was also his most confident and convincing yet for Vuitton, full of pieces easy to love and to wear. Inside three specially constructed geometric structures crash-landed behind the Fondation Louis Vuitton, the setup was an underwater world, a lost Atlantis with columns, made in collaboration with the French artist Justin Morin, jutting out of the runway at odd angles. For those counting, there were 57 total, requiring 200,000 pieces of hand-fixed shattered mirrors. Afterward, Ghesquière said, “we had an idea of this trip, of a woman who could be a digital heroine, like Tomb Raider, when she discovers an archaeological site.” Ghesquière was mining his own history. He’s known as the great experimenter from his near decade and a half at Balenciaga, and rightfully so, but his most beloved collections there tapped into the energy of the street. He captured that feeling here, with a broad offering that merged athletic pieces with a more fluid sensuality than he’s emphasized yet in his collections for Vuitton.
On the sporty side, there were mohair sweaters and jacket-sweater hybrids with racing stripes up and down the arms. Color-blocked stretchy knit shirts and tube dresses looked like relatively easy-on-the-wallet ways to buy into the look. Representing the sensual side were midi-length dresses in heritage scarf prints and a white silk number topped by a black leather harness that caught the runway breeze. We liked the look of zip-front, molded-hip jackets worn with loosely tailored bondage pants, and nipped-waist coats with exaggerated storm flaps. The diversity of the clothes was matched by a wide range of bags, the most eye-catching of which was a softly structured style apparently modeled on a double-handled plastic shopping bag. It doesn’t get much more streetwise than the show’s lace-front combat boots. Ghesquière dipped into the archive of others, as well. The ending section of sequin slip dresses looked like a nod to a late-’90s collection of the Belgian designer Martin Margiela, whom Ghesquière has long revered and who has become a popular reference point this season with the rise of Vetements. Demna Gvasalia made a big splash with his debut at Ghesquière’s former stomping grounds earlier this week. Were the dresses a tweak in his direction? Insiders will be hashing that out as they make their ways home from Paris in the coming days. But it won’t matter one stitch to customers, who will appreciate and buy into the frocks’ haute-casual vibes and poetic spirit.
Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-6 Perhaps it wasn't obvious from the first look at Nicolas Ghesquière's sporty punky gang, but he approached Louis Vuitton's autumn/winter 2016 collection by looking back; it was about recasting yesterday's creations for today's tastes. And so, fusty, vintage looking scarf prints depicting chains or paisley were fashioned into slip dresses with handkerchief hems, some decorated in sparkling sequins, and partnered up with ultra-cropped boxy leather jackets and tread-sole boots. The Paris-based artist, Justin Morin collaborated with Ghesquière on the set, which took shape as an ad hoc arrangement of 57 concrete columns ripped in half and clad in smashed mirrored tiles (an installation that was inspired by his work 'Melted Bones', 2011). It looked like some meteorite had hit the Louis Vuitton Foundation from outer space. While we're on the subject of epic journeys, for show goers - including Léa Seydoux, Selena Gomez, Jaden Smith and Alicia Vikander - it was no small task arriving here this morning. With a public transport strike, heavy rain and traffic to contend with, the show was 45-minutes late in starting. It proved to be worth the wait. Louis-Vuitton-Fall-Winter-2016-Bag-Runway-Bag-Collection-5 It’s no secret that the modern day iteration of Louis Vuitton rests on the laurels of its luggage brand heritage. And why not? There is truly nothing better than an oversized trunk splashed with monogrammed LV’s. Since he arrived on the scene in 2013, creative director Nicolas Ghesquière has been busy transforming the brand’s DNA into a digestible range for millennials. And he’s been doing a phenomenal job of capturing their hearts (and Instagram accounts). For one thing, his front rows are packed with young stars of the A-list caliber, including Selena Gomez, Jaden Smith and even top model Karlie Kloss. Further, his runway sets are imaginative and captivating, just like the commissioned creation by Justin Morin for Fall/Winter 2016. Featuring shattered mirrors and gargantuan crystals, the Vuitton show space was both captivating and social media friendly. Finally, there is the actual clothing, which is a hybrid of haute design and wearable sportswear. Red patent leather cropped flares were equally as enchanting as billowy patchwork t-shirt dresses. Sculptural coats with a sporty influence were major players, as were corset details on dresses, jackets and tops. But this season, we were particularly captivated by the handbag selection. Running the gamut from holographic trunks to crocodile totes, Mr. Ghesquère flexed his design muscle while paying astute attention to the Vuitton roots. Without further ado, here are all the drool-worthy bags from the Fall/Winter range.

EMMA STONE LOOKED LIKE A CHIC WOODLAND FAIRY AT THE VENICE FILM FESTIVAL

We missed you, Emma Stone! The actress is back on the movie premiere circuit for her new film "La La Land," and she seriously brought it at the movie's debut at the Venice Film Festival. For the photo call, the actress donned a printed green-and-pink Giambattista Valli dress that is best described as the incarnation of spring in garment form. And while you'd think the combination of pink, florals and ruffles might read as juvenile and twee, Stone makes it work. 

The best part of the look, though, might be the mustard-yellow suede ankle-strap pumps. Yep, yellow shoes. The overall effect is modern and unexpected in a way that's rare for the red carpet (though not necessarily for Stone). Good to have you back, Emma.

ANNA WINTOUR'S NIECE, ELLIE WINTOUR, SCORED A SEPTEMBER 'TATLER' COVER

CATEGORIES:Fashion

Photo: Jason Kim for 'Tatler'Photo: Jason Kim for 'Tatler'

For the upper echelons of British society (read: the very, very rich), the Condé Nast glossy Tatler has long been a go-to title. From lavish parties and exotic vacations (including features on private jet etiquette) to glimpses inside the fabulous lives of Royals and "It" girls — the magazine provides readers with the ultimate in luxury lifestyle coverage, with a smart, sassy slant.

When it comes to its covers, Tatler often has fun with cover lines (example: "Help! I Inherited a Castle") and casts pretty young things who didn't exactly bring about their own fame — perhaps a celebrity offspring or up-and-comer in society — but who have sparked the public's interest in some way. And the September 2016 edition of the magazine is no exception, as it features 21-year-old Ellie Wintour — that'd be Anna Wintour's niece — posing alongside her friends in the best of the fall collections. The student at York University has attended fashion shows with her aunt in the past, but this is her first major editorial shoot, and she's dressed head-to-toe in designers that theVogue editor would certainly approve of: Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Fendi and more.

The younger Wintour is studying English literature, so we wouldn't be surprised if a career in magazine editing is in her future; Anna Wintour's father, Charles Wintour, was a famous newspaper editor, and her brother, Patrick Wintour (Ellie's father) is a renowned journalist as well. As for the modeling bit? While celebrity offspring are certainly enjoying a moment in the spotlight, we'll have to wait and see if she'll ride that wave with future bookings. Head on over to Tatler now to see the full editorial, and take a peek at the photos below.
