one of my biggest pet peeves is when people say Louis Vuitton is their favorite fashion designer.
It's not that I don't love the fashion house, Louis Vuitton -- I can even appreciate the revolutionary nature of the ubiquitous monogram canvas. I can appreciate the business genius and prowess of luxury goods conglomerate LVMH. I can appreciate Marc Jacobs.
I just can't stand when people don't realize that Louis Vuitton is not a fashion designer -- but a fashion house. In fact, the real Monsieur Vuitton designed flat-bottom trunks with trianon canvas, and I'm pretty sure most people aren't talking about him.
But I could be mistaken. Maybe these people are talking about the luggage designer from the 1800s. I can also appreciate a good suitcase.
