Fresh and artistic, Louis Vuitton remains one of the world's most coveted symbols of status and sophistication. The Damier pattern was designed in 1888 and the Monogram, in 1896. Over a hundred years later, these remain two of the most recognizable prints in the world. Nicolas Ghesquière, previously of Balenciaga, is the artistic director of women’s collections (2013). Virgil Abloh is the artistic director of the men’s line since March 2018 until his untimely passing in 2021.
