Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton

I found this photo that I believe is either Louis Vuitton or his son, George Vuitton.  It was nearly impossible to find an actual image of today’s birthday boy.  Almost every link to the Louis Vuitton name redirects to some site selling counterfeit bags.  No wonder Bernard Arnault is so lawsuit-happy!

Anyway, Louis Vuitton was a successful luggage maker.  After his death, his son took over the company, redesigning the company’s LV logo fabric to include the designs it still includes today.

I keep mentioning the iconic power of Leos.  More than 150 years after the company was founded, the founder’s initials are an icon synonymous with style in today’s society.  The only other logos with as much resonant power in fashion are Coco Chanel’s double Cs and Yves Saint Laurent’s YSL — and both of those designers were Leos, too.

Uncanny, huh?
