Since bringing its iconic label to life in 1854, Louis Vuitton has become one of the most recognizable and sought after high end fashion brands in the world, spanning a legion of loyal supporters including everyone from Napoleon’s wife (Yes, that Napoleon) to the Louis Vuitton Don himself, Kanye West. The French fashion designer’s humble beginnings as a farmer’s son who trekked to Paris as a teenager and rose to fame are just as fascinating as the fashion fanaticism he’s managed to create. Though he started out as a box maker - a highly prestigious position in his day - Vuitton transitioned to designing travel trunks, bringing his innovative use of material which increased the stackability of trunks and timeless aesthetics to the highest echelons of French society. Since then, Louis Vuitton has become one of the most popular brands to buy and sell. THe fashion house launched the iconic Damier Canvas, later reintroduced in 1988 as Damier Ebene. The famous Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas the brand has become known for was created after Vuitton passed away in 1892. Though it was created as a way to prevent lookalikes, Louis Vuitton has in fact become the most counterfeited designer handbag in the world. It wasn’t until 1930 that the first Louis Vuitton handbag was created: the classic Speedy handbag. With its name as an homage to the growth of rapid transit, no other Louis Vuitton handbag is more recognizable than the monogram speedy, a bag that will definitely get you where you need to be. Subsequent styles including the Noé, Alma, Keepall and Neverfull were launched, all of which you can buy and sell online today. The Louis Vuitton brand has come a long way from the days of packing boxes and making trunks, creating modern artful collaborations with icons like Haruki Murakami, Stephen Sprouse and Richard Prince. Lucky for you, it’s also one of the top luxury brands that has retained its value. With StockX’s help, you can sell your gently used Louis Vuitton handbags.
