In 1835, at the age of 13, a young boy walked nearly 300 miles to Paris; he worked odd jobs and did whatever it took to survive. He eventually learned a craft: box making. Before long, the young boy had earned enough to open his own box-making store. The tale may seem a bit unremarkable until you consider the boy’s name: Louis Vuitton. You know the brand, but not the man; take a look at the genius that created one of the most recognizable brands in the world with this biography.

Louis Vuitton Versus My Other Bag

Luxury Brand Protection

"The fashion industry is a serious sector of the global economy. Fashion is a dynamic business; trends change fast and companies need to react fast. Having a fashion brand requires not only good taste and a love for fashion, but also good business, financial, and strategic skills. It is crucial for fashion companies to be aware that the brand they have is their most valuable asset and, as such, it needs to be protected. Having a clear, comprehensive, and effective brand protection strategy from the very beginning will save nerves, time, and money if and when trouble comes. In 2014, Louis Vuitton, the Paris-based fashion house, filed suit in the Southern District of New York against the Los Angeles-based company-My Other Bag (MOB). Louis Vuitton based its suit on the claim that MOB designs not only infringe Louis Vuitton federally registered trademarks and copyrights, but that MOB was diluting its famous trademarks and raised the claims of false designation of origin/unfair competition. Using the above case between Louis Vuitton and My Other Bag students will analyze firstly, what assets of business enterprise can be protected by the brand, and secondly the steps that the brand owner can undertake to protect their brand. On the basis of the above case students will be able to explore when and why fashion brands need to take legal action, and analyze and reflect on whether taking legal action always makes good business sense."--Bloomsbury Publishing.

An exploration of the dynamic and innovative architecture and interiors commissioned by Louis Vuitton. A prescient advocate of contemporary interiors and architecture, Louis Vuitton continues to encourage innovation and playfulness in the designs of their retail spaces without losing sight of the essence of luxury central to its identity. This process of designing places to display high-style objects has created a new venue for cutting-edge architecture and transformed city streetscapes. This exploration of Louis Vuitton's international stores, as well as industrial sites and unrealized projects, includes interviews with some of today's most talented architects and designers who discuss the beautiful and complex structures they have produced in collaboration with Louis Vuitton. This book examines the physical aspects of these buildings as well as the ideas that went into their composition. Acting as both a backdrop for luxurious retail goods and the physical manifestation of the brand, these spaces are a genre unto themselves that invite exploration. With luxurious finishes and unexpected textures, these fantastic buildings represent the intersection of fashion and interior design. The book includes interviews with Jun Aoki, Peter Marino, Christian de Portzamparc, David McNulty, and Christian Reyne.

Two decades of fashion history in the making, told through a sumptuous array of images straight from the catwalk Founded as a luxury leather goods house in 1854, Louis Vuitton was for many decades one of the world's leading trunk and accessories makers.
