Louis Vuitton Exhibit: It’s The Bag, Stupid

Louis Vuitton to Lipgloss Makes Retail Bonds Best: Korea Markets

Both their stories are woven together in a colorful exhibit that spans over a century of fashion history. The exhibit takes the visitor from the founder’s humble beginnings as a case-packer to the fantastical runway shows that transformed the house into one of the world’s biggest names, with a revenue last year of euro2.5 billion. Though both men are from different centuries, the exhibition asks whether they have more in common than meets the eye. There’s a small clue in the first room: portraits of the two men hang side by side, both sporting mustaches in the style of their age. “They’re both visionaries, though they would be the last to admit it,” said museum curator Pamela Golbin, “and they both lived an exact same story at a decisive moment in fashion.” Louis Vuitton faced industrialization of the 19th century and new train travel while Marc Jacobs was confronted with 1990s’ changing demands for marketing “making fashion truly globalized for the first time,” Golbin said. The story began for Louis Vuitton as a trunk-packer for rich Parisians, a job in which he was able to hone a mastery of every bolt, lock and corner of travel cases from across the French capital. He built on his knowledge, finally opening his own house in 1854. The Orient Express was new and fashionable, and the meteoric rise of haute couture under Charles Frederic Worth meant better-dressed women went on trips with more and more clothes that needed cases to fit them in.

The central bank forecasts the current-account surplus will be a record $53 billion in 2013. Koreas domestic economy has already entered a recovery path, said Jean Lim, a Seoul-based economist at the Korea Institute of Finance. Now its a matter of when to hike the benchmark rate rather than cutting it. International bond sales in Korea total $7.6 billion this quarter compared with $7.2 billion in the same period of 2012, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Interest costs for issuers have dropped from near a 15-month high set in June of 3.60 percent to 3.37 percent as of Sept. 11, JPMorgan Chase & Co. indexes show. Of the 29 dollar-denominated bond issues since June 30 in the Asia-Pacific region excluding Japan, 11 have been from South Korean borrowers, Bloomberg data show.

The History of Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton Handbags and Luggage Louis Vuitton first entered the fashion world with their luggage line. In the age where more people were beginning to travel on cruise ships and trains and with the invention of the car, Louis Vuitton created a large flat case, a steamer bag and a large overnight bag called a Keepall. Their luggage range now contains travel accessories such as garment carriers, travel trunks, flight bags, laptop cases, vanity cases, dog carriers, hat boxes, jewellery cases, golf bags, diaper bags and passport covers. Louis Vuitton is also a coveted handbag designer. In 1896 the now famous monogram canvas was created by George, Louis Vuitton’s son. A print so popular that it was redesigned in 2003 in multicolour by Takashi Murakami and in 1999 in a miniature version of the print called the Mini Lin Monogram. In 2004 the Damier Geant collection was launched, a canvas made from technical fibres identical to those used for climbing ropes.

The knowledge he had gained on his travels in France was the solid base for the popular LV Company known today. The History of the Louis Vuitton Company It was in the early years of the Louis Vuitton Company that the famous LV monogram was designed. It was called the Monogram Canvas and was launched in the late 1890s. The monogram also included quatrefoils and flowers, which has become the popular LV pattern found on many LV handbags and luggage. The Louis Vuitton label grew over the years, calling for a rebranding method in the late 1950s. Although the company decided to keep the popular LV monogram, it was adjusted slightly to make it more usable for purses, wallets and daily wear, rather than travel bags. Marc Jacobs joined the Louis Vuitton Company in 1997 with the goal of designing a classic and timeless clothing line for Louis Vuitton Handbags both men and women. Marc Jacobs stayed with the company and collaborated with Stephen Sprouse, which included adding a level of graffiti on the popular and classic LV monogram bags. The design was made available to the public in pink and neon green. The monogram bags can also be found with a cherry blossom pattern.
