Vintage Louis Vuitton from Paris

I love vintage ads and labels. This is a vintage ad from my favorite designer of luggage and handbags, Louis Vuitton. The Louis Vuitton label was founded by Louis Vuitton Malletier in 1854 on Rue Neuve des Capucines in Paris, France. The Louis Vuitton brand and the famous LV monogram are among the world's most valuable brands. Since the 19th century, manufacture of Louis Vuitton goods have not changed: Luggage is still made by hand.

In 1913 the Louis Vuitton Building opened on the Champs Elysees. The Avenue des Champs-Élysées is one of the most famous streets and one of the most expensive strips of real estate in the world. Perfect place for the Louis Vuitton headquarters!

Enjoy the weekend :)

DEAREST KERRI! Oh le Champs-Élysées is one of the most fascinating streets in the world and to see all the famous fashion houses, it is a dream come true!

Hope you are having a pleasant summer! We have had horrible heat waves here,so the ocean and all its pleasures have been on my mind!

Thanks for visiting my sweet friend! Anita

I didn't realize the Louis Vuitton luggage is still made my hand. It would be so nice to own a piece of luggage like this. The girls travel so much, and they would love one too. The headquarters is such a beautiful building. Have a nice weekend.
