“The French fashion house has always shown a strong commitment to the arts, beginning with Louis Vuitton himself. The foundation of the company in 1854 was largely based on emerging trends in art and architecture. In fact, many of Vuitton’s early luggage pieces were custom-made for various conductors and composers. In being inspired by art, Vuitton created art of his own with his iconic trunks and sophisticated pieces of luggage.
