5 mind blowing facts about Louis Vuitton

Categories:Louis Vuitton

There’s a lot we know and love about Louis Vuitton! They make excellent luggage and handbags, they’ve just launched a series of perfumes, and they even recently changed their packaging. But there’s still a lot to be learned about this luxury goods giant. We’ve rounded up some surprising facts that even the most committed LV fans might never have come across before, from beautiful store spaces to a brand value that’s unsurpassed by any competitors and from the power of the luxury conglomerate to some unexpected products, we’re taking you inside the world of LV like never before. In fact, though this brand always takes pride in its heritage, it may even have a skeleton or two in its spacious closet! We’ve talked about some interesting Louis Vuitton factsbefore here on LuxuryLaunches and you can consider this the much awaited sequel to our story. Some of these facts will surprise even longtime LV devotees!

Its brand value surpasses Gucci, Hermes and a lot more 
Louis Vuitton placed 19th on Forbes’ 2016 ranking of most valuable brands. It is the only luxury fashion brand to make it to the top thirty (Nike was the closest possible competitor at Number 18 while Gucci lagged at 44) and is followed by Mercedes Benz. The Louis Vuitton brand is worth an astonishing $27.3 billion which is more than Hermes ($11.7 billion) and Gucci ($12 billion) combined! Even the fast fashion brands H&M ($15.9 billion) and Zara ($10.7 billion) couldn’t measure up to Louis Vuitton’s awesome lead. We knew that monogram was powerful, but even we didn’t even anticipate a value of several billion dollars!

Their parent company literally controls the luxury market 
Louis Vuitton is part of the LVHM conglomerate which owns almost all the major luxury brands seen in the market today. Subsidiaries of LVHM include Fendi, Kenzo, Marc Jacobs, Emilio Pucci even Dior and Celine. Among watches and jewelry, the conglomerate owns Hublot, Tag Heuer, Zenith and Bulgari. Dom Pérignon, Domaine Chandon California, Hennessy, Glenmorangie, Krug, Mercier and Moët & Chandon are some of the wine and spirits companies that are owned by LVHM. This conglomerate which is managed by Bernard Arnault is sometimes thought to have a monopoly over the luxury good sector. Imagine you’re wearing Fendi shoes and a Pucci dress, your makeup is from Sephora and you’re sporting jewelry from Bulgari as you sip Moët from a fluted glass. Suddenly you’re in head to toe LVHM without even realising it! Given these facts Arnault could easily be one of the most powerful men in the industry since every move he makes on behalf of the conglomerate could have incredibly far reaching consequences.

Louis Vuitton’s grandson Henri was allegedly a Nazi supporter!
In 2004, a book called Louis Vuitton, A French Saga exposed ties between the Vuitton family and the German Nazis. Author Stephanie Bonvicini reveals that she stumbled across the information when she was researching story of Louis Vuitton for a story on the brand’s 150th anniversary. When she approached the brand for information about its wartime activities, they clammed up and claimed that documents from 1930 to 1945 had been destroyed in a fire. However, historical archives revealed that Louis Vuitton’s store at the Hotel du Parc, in Vichy where Pétain set up his puppet government, was the only store allowed to operate while others were shut down. The author even states that Henry Vuitton, great-grandson of the firm’s founder Louis, apparently set up a factory making artifacts to glorify Petain including busts of him. A spokesperson for the company responded with the following statement, “We don’t deny the facts. But regrettably the author has exaggerated the Vichy episode.”

Louis Vuitton Monogram Bear
Louis Vuitton’s cuddliest creation is a $9,000 limited edition teddy bear 
Louis Vuitton only created one teddy bear design on their 150th anniversary that was completely designed, developed and manufactured by their own company. 500 pieces of the monogrammed bear – christened DouDou– were created and each one retailed for a staggering $9000. One of them was even sold at a Christie’s auction in Monaco for a whopping $182,000! Everytime a treasure like this hits the market, Louis Vuitton collectors are front and center trying to snag a piece of the action. And the auctioned off bear is an indication of the demand for limited edition products from luxury goods companies, especially considering it sold for many times the original price. Smart collectors know exactly when to buy and when to sell to make the most profit!

Louis Vuitton’s Singapore Maison has an underwater access tunnel, bookstore and a relaxation deck
Located in a multi-storey building that acts as an island and connected by tunnels to Marina Bay Sands is Louis Vuitton’s Singapore maison. The space was originally intended to be a gallery, but it caught the fancy of Bernard Arnault and after a series of long and complex negotiations, LVHM secured the space for Louis Vuitton. The store opened last September and has already established itself as a Marina Bay Sands landmark. Designed by architect Moshe Safdie, the space is part of the Marina Bay Sands resort, but the nautical interiors by Peter Marino give the store a distinctly Louis Vuitton feel. The timber used in shipbuilding as well as the stone of harbors can be found here. The space has been designed to encourage visitors to look outside the building and enjoy the view but the fantastic display of Louis Vuitton products might steal all your attention. This store retails all the usual LV clothing and accessories that fans love, but as an added bonus this space boasts a dedicated watch room where you can peruse the brand’s timepieces to your heart’s content. Believe it or not, there’s even a deck where you can sit back and relax as you soak up the fabulous views and atmosphere.

Louis Vuitton Bag

Categories:Louis Vuitton

If you can recall what Louis Vuitton’s original Steamer Bag looks like , then you’ll find this one, Nicolas Ghesquière’s interpretation for Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2016 collection, vaguely familiar.
Known as the City Steamer, the only thing that was kept from the original as far as I can tell is the clasp/padlock detailing that sits smack in the middle of the bag. You could also say that it’s structured like the original, with stiff stitched sides giving it that sharp polished finish. The handles, though, seem to be borrowed from the Dora, another bag created during Ghesquière’s ongoing tenure at the French luxury house.
In other words, it’s Louis Vuitton’s answer to the standard work tote with short top handles that come with an additional sling that OLs (or office ladies) the world over can love. The City Steamer comes in 3 sizes, the PM, the MM and the GM. Made of smooth calfskin, the PM measures 26 cm by 23 cm, the MM 31 cm by 26 cm and the GM, 34 cm by 29 cm.
 the ones that come in Black with gold hardware will be, in my opinion, perfect for work especially if you hail from the more serious professions. For everyone else (and for those who want a bit of fun), there’s always the tri-coloured ones, including the one in Vert Fonce that’s shown above.
But if that is still a tad ho-hum for your tastes, well, go for the one that comes with rivets made specially for the Cruise 2016 collection, or the ones in exotic crocodile that are mouth-wateringly droolworthy. Available soon at a Louis Vuitton boutique near you, stay tuned for more updates on the City Steamer right here; I have a feeling this won’t be the only post on this new bag offering anytime soon.
And by shrunk, I mean really, really tiny, with each fitting comfortably in the palm of my hand, which should make them around 20 cm from end to end max. 7 different styles are up for grabs (you could actually do it quite literally as well, seeing how small they are), from icons like the Alma, Lockit, Noé and Speedy to recent additions like the Pallas, W and the Turenne.
Having already previewed these babies up close whilst in Tokyo last week for Louis Vuitton’s F/W15 press presentation, I can safely say this. THEY ARE TOO FREAKING ADORABLE TO RESIST. Yes, I’m talking about the new Nano collection, which takes house classics (and a few new bags), places them under Wayne Szalinski’s shrink ray and, you guessed it, shrunk.

Louis Vuitton Singapore Golden Jubilee Petite Malle

Categories:Louis Vuitton

louis_vuitton_singapore-golden-jubilee-petite-malleWe all know about the Petite Malle, one of Nicolas Ghesquiere’s key contributions to the quietly revamped French luxury house, that was (and still is) one of Louis Vuitton’s biggest hits, both on and off the runway. Fittingly, to celebrate Singapore’s upcoming Golden Jubilee (or #SG50, in hashtag speak), Louis Vuitton will be releasing not one but two limited edition Petite Malle bags just for the celebrations.
The first one most of you have already seen, in Monogram Canvas, 
 you could probably start wait-listing for this stunner of a bag now at LV’s Island Maison at Marina Bay Sands.
The second one is the luxurious red alligator skin Petite Malle that comes trimmed instead in black with the accompanying sling in the same colour. Finished with gold-tone hardware, this particular piece is limited to just 9 pieces (9 being the date of Singapore’s National Day on 9 August). it’s clearly targeted at the consummate collector that must own every Petite Malle ever made.
Because I’m pretty sure all of you needed better pics. Because it’s coming out soon. And because of the way they’re priced, we would probably need months and months just to save up for it. From Louis Vuitton’s F/W15 collection comes Boîte Promenade, which you could say is the Petite Malle‘s bigger sister (or brother, whichever you’re comfortable with).
For everyone else (and those keen on the first Petite Malle), you can view them all at a special Petite Malle exhibition that kicks off on 3 August 2015 at Louis Vuitton Island Maison, where its craftsmanship will be showcased.
