LV Cindy Sherman

 

In 1854, Louis Vuitton founded his House. In 1896 his son, Georges Vuitton, created The Monogram in honor of his late father. An icon was born.

The Monogram was revolutionary when it appeared. This most particular and personal of signatures was instantly transformed into a universal symbol of modernity in the hands of Georges Vuitton: it is one of the first exercises in elevated branding and a defining sign of a global culture to come.

In 1965 Gaston-Louis Vuitton, recounted how his father, Georges, had created the motifs on The Monogram canvas: ‘First of all, the initials of the company – LV – are interlaced in such a way as to remain perfectly legible. Then a diamond. To give a specific character to the shape, he made the sides concave with a four-petal flower in the center. Then the extension of this flower in a positive image. Finally, a circle containing a flower with four rounded petals.’

It occurred to me that i have posted several times about the Hermes furniture line but haven't actually posted the details of the items in the collection.

Below are the details as described on the Hermes website.
