Louis Vuitton, a trunk-maker in Paris since 1854, became a legend in the art of travel by creating luggage, bags and accessories as innovative as they were elegant and practical. A century and a half later, the legend lives on. Strengthened by its international renown, the legend is embodied by the Monogram canvas, which has enjoyed unrivalled success since 1896 and played a starring role in the development of modern luxury. Innovation shapes the story of Louis Vuitton. Always leading the avant-garde of fashion without compromising traditional craftsmanship, Louis Vuitton is now active in other creative spheres: ready-to-wear, shoes, watches and jewelry. Previously under the artistic direction of Marc Jacobs, the collections were met with immediate and renown success. Now under the artistic direction of Nicolas Ghesquiere, the brand will continue to express the mantra of blending innovation with tradition. Continually expanding, Louis Vuitton today boasts 17 production workshops, an international logistics center, more than 465 stores in 65 countries and employs 19,240 people throughout the world, 70% of who are based outside France.
