At one time known solely for its luxurious luggage, the house of Louis Vuitton has since made a name for itself on the international ready-to-wear scene. In 1997, Marc Jacobs was appointed creative director, securing the house as a must-see at Paris Fashion Week & modernizing the label’s signature accessory line by collaborating with such contemporary artists as Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and Stephen Sprouse. Jacobs continues to uphold the house’s standard for fresh sophistication.
