LV Trivia

  1. Thought it would be fun to post an LV trivia thread since all of us are so nuts about Louis.

    Please post a factoid you know about Louis that you would like to share with your fellow tPFers. The more interesting the trivia, the better!

    I will start:

    Most of the vachetta cowhide leather that LV uses is from Northern European cattle, because the cold weather causes less skin blemishes due to insect bites.
     
  2. I'm gonna love this thread!!! :nuts:

    -The press gets a bag about a month before each runway:

    +For the S/S '05 it was the Lizard Cerises Pochette.

    +For the F/W '07 Squitchy Bag, for the SS07 a TDF cabas like the LVOE one but instead of having the LVOE letters there is a cut Speedy incrusted. This bag was supposed to be released but they decided at the last moment not to put it on the runway.

    -The press also gets Christmas gifts. In 2005, it was the Petit Noe Epi Mocha with gunmetal hardware. In 2006 it was the Miroir Silver Speedy, with only a few lucky enough to receive it.

    -There is a range of different products especially created for 'Best Client' and/or to resolve problems. Baguettes Chinoises, Bougies de Voyages, Incenses de Voyages, Bookmark, Night Flight Kit... They created this line of products to avoid having to give a discount on an item currently retailing in the store. It's 2 totally different budgets. It's also in order to maintain an easy management of the inventory.

  10. The Monogram pattern was originally designed to prevent counterfeit by Louis Vuitton's son. How ironic. (sorry, I keep having these counterfeit trivia!!)
