Let’s Talk Louis

Yesterday, in Miami Design District, Louis Vuitton unveiled a project that Pierre Paulin designed in the 1970’s. Sketches of furniture designs, “Playing with Shapes” were created in 1972 for Herman Miller, a furniture designer. He has been known for designing furniture for famous people such as Renault and for stores along the Champs Elysees.

Louis Vuitton has always been known for functionality and took an old idea and made it happen. The exhibit is open all week in the Miami Design District. Celebrities such as Kate Hudson and Miranda Kerr attended the Louis Vuitton dinner before the unveiling on December 2nd. They also celebrated the Louis Vuitton monogram which has been an on going project executed by Nicolas Ghesquière, the creative director for LV.

What is :”Celebrating Monogram”? This project has been calling inspiration from six icoloclasts including, Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, and Cindy Sherman. The icons have created a collection for Louis Vuitton which celebrates the classic monogram for the brand, but on different items and in new ways. The brand has been existent since 1845 when Louis himself started the leather goods brand. Since then the company has evolved, but the style and functionality has stayed true.
