About LOUIS VUITTON
1926 : The Maharaja of Baroda commissions a tea case to take on tiger hunts. Heures d’Absence, the house’s first scent, debuts. Vuitton trunks, reports Pandora Luxurye in “Travelling Companions for the Chic Parisienne,” are “famous for their capacity for holding a maximum number of things in a minimum of space.”
Just as art-world A-listers were brought in to the design atelier, a troupe of Hollywood stars (Jennifer Lopez, Uma Thurman, Scarlett Johansson) was tapped by Jacobs to represent the company in its advertisements, and world-renowned architects hired to dream up new retail spaces. Jacobs’s out-of-the-box thinking stoked unflagging interest in the brand.
1837 : The young apprentice joins Monsieur Maréchal, a layetier (box maker) and emballeur (packer); he will stay on for seventeen years.
Since its founding in Paris in 1854, Louis Vuitton has catered to—among the general throng of well-heeled everywomen—empresses, explorers, and magazine editors. What was once a tiny little Parisian luggage shop is now the multifaceted jewel in the crown that sits atop the head of Bernard Arnault, CEO of the fashion conglomerate LVMH, who, in 2003, likened the revenue-generating house to a “luxury Microsoft.”
