10 Facts About Louis Vuitton—the Man Behind the Brand
1. LOUIS VUITTON CAME FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS. He spent two years walking from his small hometown to Paris, picking up odd jobs and finding temporary shelter along the way.
2. LOUIS VUITTON LEARNED HIS TRADE EARLY ON. When Vuitton finally arrived in Paris as a 16-year-old in 1837, he became an apprentice to a craftsman who specialized in luggage boxes made to be carried on horse-drawn carriages, boats, and trains.
3. LOUIS VUITTON DEVELOPED SOME IMPRESSIVE CONNECTIONS. In the 19th century, having a personal box-maker and packer was the height of luxury, and Vuitton took on that enviable—and highly specialized—role for none other than Napoleon III’s wife, Eugénie de Montijo, the Empress of France.
4. LOUIS VUITTON’S TRUNKS HAD A UNIQUE DESIGN. In 1858, Vuitton designed his first branded steamer trunk. The design—waterproof, flat, and easy to stack—was far more practical than the rounded trunks that were popular at the time.
5. LOUIS VUITTON’S PRODUCTS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN COUNTERFEITED. Vuitton introduced a striped canvas pattern for his luggage in 1876. Twelve years later, he came out with the Damier print, a classic checkerboard pattern that the fashion house still uses today.
6. LOUIS VUITTON’S WORKSHOP WAS DESTROYED. During the violent political upheaval of the Franco-Prussian War, demand for Vuitton’s goods slowed and his atelier was looted and destroyed. Within months of his shop’s destruction, Vuitton devoted himself to rebuilding his business, setting up camp in a new, more luxurious location in the heart of Paris in 1871.
7. LOUIS VUITTON KEPT HIS BUSINESS IN THE FAMILY. Louis Vuitton has always been a family business. Vuitton’s son, Georges, patented an innovative lock system for his father’s trunks in 1886. The locks were so effective that Georges challenged none other than Harry Houdini to escape from a locked Vuitton trunk (the great magician and escape artist declined to respond).
8. LOUIS VUITTON LIVED WHERE HE WORKED. In 1878, he and his wife had two houses built in the garden surrounding his workshop, so that he could be as close to his craft as possible.
9. LOUIS VUITTON DIDN’T DESIGN HANDBAGS OR CLOTHING. Handbags didn’t become part of the Louis Vuitton brand until the decades after the designer’s death, and clothing came much later. In 1997, designer Marc Jacobs became creative director and came up with Louis Vuitton’s first ready-to-wear clothing line.
10. LOUIS VUITTON HAS TIES TO ANOTHER FRENCH ICON. Vuitton won a bronze medal for his innovative trunk designs at the 1867 Exposition Universelle, a famed world’s fair in Paris. Vuitton went on to win a gold medal two decades later, at the 1889 Exposition—the event for which none other than the Eiffel Tower was created.
