Jul 09 Fashion Illustration – Louis Vuitton
Louis Vuitton is one of the the most beloved high fashion brands. Whether they can afford real expensive items or just knock-off purses, most women in the world are crazy about the timeless classic LV monogram canvas. Crazy enough to wrap their bodies with LV clothing, if they could. Crazy enough to get LV monogram tattoos. That’s how I got this idea to create Louis Vuitton Tattooed Girl – Colored pencil illustration.
When I went to Venice Italy, the little architectural detail there reminded me of the famous Louis Vuitton pattern. As it turns out, Louis Vuitton actually took the idea from Venice. Here is one of the pictures I took from Venice.
A symbol of Louis Vuitton since 1896, the Monogram canvas was created by the son of Louis Vuitton, George Vuitton. He began a campaign to build the company into a worldwide corporation, exhibiting the company’s products at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. In 1896, the company launched the legendary Monogram Canvas and made the worldwide patents on it. Its graphic symbols, including quatrefoils and flowers (as well as the LV monogram), were based on the trend of using Japanese and Oriental designs in the late Victorian era.
Monogram canvas combines durability, flexibility and lightness. It is entirely impermeable and highly resistant to surface scratches. It is perfectly suitable for all kinds of uses: daily, business and travel. Monogram is available in a complete collection of timeless styles enriched each year by new models for both men and women.
