    Louis Vuitton is one of the most highly recognized luxury brands in the world. The French fashion house was established in 1854, and its iconic “LV” monogram appears on many of its products including handbags, leather goods, and jewelry. In 1987, Louis Vuitton merged with alcohol and spirits conglomerate Moët Hennessy to form the company that is now known as LVMH. The corporation has gone on to purchase or acquire some of the top luxury brands in the world, from fashion houses like Dior as well as high-end liquor companies like Dom Pérignon and Veuve Clicquot.

    The team looked at LVMH's mergers and acquisitions to visualize all of the companies this luxury powerhouse owns. Can you name all of the LVMH brands?

    The History of Louis Vuitton

    Louis Vuitton apprenticed under a successful trunk maker in the 1930s and quickly became well known for his creations. Shortly after in 1854, Vuitton founded his namesake fashion house on Rue Neuve des Capucines in Paris, France. A few years later, Vuitton debuted his revolutionary rectangular trunks which were very different from the round-topped trunks that were popular at the time.

    In the early 20th century, the flagship Louis Vuitton store opened up in the Champs-Elysées in Paris, known for its luxury shops and cafes. Stores also opened up around the world including in New York City, London, Bombay, and Buenos Aires. In the 30s, Louis Vuitton introduced their iconic Speedy handbag, which is still manufactured (and revered) today.

    Louis Vuitton trunks are still made by hand, and many of their goods feature the brown monogram logo that has become synonymous with the brand. Many famous actors and musicians have modeled in ads for Louis Vuitton products including Angelina Jolie, Madonna, Keith Richards, and David Bowie.

    The Most Iconic LVMH Products

    Some of the most famous and sought-after products in the LVMH arsenal include the following:

    • Louis Vuitton Steamer Trunk
    • Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag
    • Dior Saddle Bag
    • Fendi Baguette Bag
    • Givenchy Antigona Bag
    • Moët & Chandon Champagne
    • Veuve Clicquot Champagne
    • TAG Heuer Monaco Watch

    Some of the LVMH companies' products retail for thousands of dollars. In fact, the Louis Vuitton Urban Satchel, which is made out of recycled goods, sold for $150,000, and a luxe version of the Speedy bag is going for $1 million.
