Before I was old enough to really appreciate fashion, I used to piece things together. Not really worried whether it matched, nor if it looked cute. I just knew I was cute, & thats all that mattered. Now that I've grown & matured, I take a liking to those classic designers. Classic in the sense, no matter how old or young, you can appreciate it for what its true worth is. I can only be talking about Louis Vuitton; classic just as your timeless Rolex.
Here's a brief history of Louis Vuitton as taken from wikipedia: Louis Vuitton Malletier, or sometimes shortened to LV, is a French luxury fashion and leather goods brand and company, one of the main divisions of LVMH headquartered in Paris, France. Known especially for bags and trunks, the company collaborates with prominent figures for marketing and design (most notably supermodel Gisele Bündchen and fashion designer Marc Jacobs). Internationally renowned and highly regarded for name recognition in the fashion world, as a result LV has become one of the most counterfeited contemporary luxury brands.
LV is also one of the oldest fashion houses in the world, having started in 1854. It sells its products strictly through its own retail stores and online (as an effort against counterfeit). It primarily competes with Versace, Gucci, Chanel, Prada and similar luxury fashion brands.
Although some pieces can be quite pricey, always look at it from an investmest standpoint. As the years go by, you can always past things down as an heirloom. Lord knows I appreciate the pieces my mother has passed on to me.
This is one designer that hasn't succumbed to trends. Its classic, & you just don't get any better than that!
