Presbyopia, checkerboard pattern and classic lock, which of these classic elements of LV do you prefer?
The bag world has countless ups and downs There are wonderful stories of ups and downs, but there are only a few who can truly be called”legendary”.
Louis Vuitton is one of the few.
This century-old brand has created countless popular classic bags, and always occupy the top of the pyramid in the ever-changing bag world. When it comes to classic presbyopia, even people who don’t pay attention to the fashion field will know one or two.
Today, Sister Bao will share with you that in addition to the classic presbyopia, the Louis Vuitton bag has those classic elements.
When it comes to Louis Vuitton bags, Monogram presbyopia is naturally a topic that cannot be bypassed.
This printing design, which was born more than 120 years ago, is still not out of date. Even under the current retro trend, it has once again been pushed into the storm of the trend.
This print pattern first appeared in 1896. At that time, in order to distinguish genuine products from Faker, George Vuitton, the son of the founder of Louis Vuitton, designed a complex set of patterns, which is the earliest LV“presbyopia”.
It is composed of four-pointed star, diamond-shaped inner four-pointed star, four-petal flower and the founder’s initials”LV”. It is printed on a large area. On all kinds of bags, until today.
Of course, LV presbyopia is not static. As the trends of different times change, presbyopia has been innovating and changing.
Like the current creative director of LV women’s clothing, Nicolas Ghesquière, he is very bold and avant-garde in the innovation of presbyopia.
Last year he designed the Monogram Giant presbyopia, commonly known as the”big flower”, and doubled the pattern while maintaining the original presbyopia. The enlarged presbyopia is not only more eye-catching, but also more modern, modern, and more suitable for young people.
This year, Nicolas Ghesquière combined graffiti elements and Monogram presbyopia to design the Monogram Giant presbyopia graffiti version. Compared with the classic presbyopia, this is inspired by the 20th century art movement.”Xinhua” is more artistic and street-like.
Except for the Monogram old flower pattern, Damier grid The pattern is also a popular printing style of Louis Vuitton all year round.
Many people don’t know that Damier appeared 8 years earlier than Monogram.
The print pattern designed by the founder of early Louis Vuitton for LV bags is red and gray Rayée stripes.
Later, George Vuitton, the founder’s son, found the horizontal stripes too boring, so in 1888, a more complicated beige-brown grid was introduced, and the L.Vuitton logo was printed alternately with the horizontal stripes. Upgraded to a horizontal and vertical grid pattern.
This is the famous Damier checkerboard.
Nowadays, the Damier checkerboard is still widely used on LV bags. Like the Monogram pattern, it has been carrying out a lot of innovative gameplay.
This year, Louis Vuitton menswear designer Virgil Abloh and Japanese artist Nigo jointly designed the”LV²” series of bags This is the perfect fusion of the two classic elements of LV-Monogram and Damier checkerboard.
The two patterns are irregularly spliced, and the edges are like melted cream ice cream, breaking the regular arrangement of brown old flowers and checkerboards, full of childishness.
Nicolas Ghesquière, creative director of women’s clothing, also used the combination of Damier checkerboard and Monogram pattern. What is even more surprising is that he also added tannin material and embroidered the Damier pattern in shades of color. Monogram makes those bags look more dynamic and modern.
” The”classic lock” design is more common in Louis Vuitton bags, which originated from Louis Vuitton’s earliest travel hard case.
The most original LV classic lock requires a key to open. It was a special lock invented by Louis Vuitton’s son George Vuitton in 1890, named”5-tumbler”.
In 2013, after taking office, womenswear creative director Nicolas Ghesquière applied an improved version of this classic to POCHETTE METIS and PETITE MALLE.
“LV” logo is also a type of lock that can be used as a representative of LV. This great logo appeared in 1896 and was also launched by George Vuitton. He used his father’s name, Louis Vuitton, the initials LV to create it.
At present, most of the new bags launched by Louis Vuitton use the”LV” metal logo as the lock. The most interesting and classic design must be Twist.
The rounded and lovely”LV” on the bag surface is the decoration and the”key” for opening and closing the bag. The bag can be opened by rotating the”L” on the outside.”Twisted bag” is also named after it.
In addition, popular models like Daphne and LV Pont 9 The LV bag also uses the”LV” metal logo and redesigned LV Circle lock.
