The Long-Lasting Popularity of Louis Vuitton Handbags

Handbags from Louis Vuitton became instant bestsellers ever since its launch. Bags coming from the elite brand have been sought after due to their excellent workmanship, elegant aesthetics and superior quality. Because of their leather products’ high value, bags from the brand have become the global standard in terms of luggage.

The Origins of the Brand

Louis Vuitton was established in France. In the early 19th century, Napoleon III, the country’s ruling emperor during that time, was on the search for a maker who can produce bags for Empress Eugene. The bag designer/maker who caught the emperor’s eye was Louis Vuitton, a professional baggage handler who managed the baggage of high-born families. Vuitton made an innovation by creating flat and impermeable luggage.

From this, Vuitton founded his business and made his first design in 1854. During two World’s Fairs, organized in 1867 and 1889, the man won bronze and gold medals for his bags’ superior quality. However, it was not till 1892 when the initial LV handbags were produced and sold. Eventually the company became bigger and more luggage designs were made. Since its humble beginnings until today, LV handbags are constant bestsellers and are coveted due to its craftsmanship and high-end quality.

Bags from the brand are now the standard of luxury, class and fine taste. This establishes the brand as an industry leader for leather crafts. As a fact, LV bags are so highly prized that the brand has plenty of counterfeiters producing fake LV handbags. To fight against bootleggers in 1896, Georges, Louis Vuitton’s son launched the LV Monogram Canvas. This particular canvas is the brand’s label imprinted unto the bad at the factory. Authentic LV products come with this Monogram Canvas material. Counterfeiters might attempt to replicate it however those with a discerning, expert eye can surely tell the genuine from the fake.

By the late 1880s, LV bags were made with the Damier Canvas. Both father and son produced the design. The design of the canvas featured “marque L. Vuitton depose.” This is the French manner of declaring the LV trademark. The Monogram Canvas soon followed.

The Steamer bag, which has a smaller size was designed in order to complement bigger LV trunks and baggage. The Keepall was introduced in 1930 and this was the first LV bag which gathered attention from the fashion world and made the brand an iconic label. The leather from both the Keepall and the Speedy is crafted with the characteristic LV design highlighting both luxury and practicality.

The Noe bag was first designed to carry bottles of champagne however it became the chic bag for upper-class ladies who changed it into a fashionable handbag. Designers like March Jacobs and Stephen Sprouse launched a limited edition LV monogram in a graffiti design in 2001. Marc Jacobs eventually collaborated with artist Takashi Murakami in 2003 to launch a new canvas using 33 colors, leading to the Monogram Multicolore.

The LV brand is still praised for its continuous focus on high quality, classic aesthetics and luxury. From LV wardrobe down to bags, shoes and accessories, their pieces can be frequently seen on the rich, the famous, the chic and tastemakers who create trends.

Feel Good with the Right Designer Fashions

It is true that your choice of clothing influences the manner in which other people understand you to be. You might be stunning with a perfect figure, but if you wear clothes that do not flatter you, people will be vocal about it.

Hence, it is essential to wear the right clothes especially the designer kind. Many people invest in designer clothing because of the materials and the artistry involved in making the piece.

Some designs of said designers also come in a variety of sizes to fit the majority of people.

If you have a curvy figure, you can opt for dresses that hug the contours of your body. Show them off with those trendy bandage dresses. You can wear dresses with plunging necklines, however, do go for dresses necklines that do not plunge that far—you don’t want all that attention focused on you, don’t you?

Complement your designer clothing with a host of accessories. Then again, do not go overboard with the accessories and jewelry. Match the dress with a few pieces of tasteful gold or gem-encrusted jewels. A simple pair of earrings and a ring that matches will do. Also, you can also go for necklaces. If you want, you can go for those statement ones, which are hot right now.

Thus, the right designer clothing will not only look good on you, but it will also make you feel good. High-end clothing are investments, so it pays to choose ensembles carefully.
