Wanting to continue his father’s legacy, Georges Vuitton designed the instantly recognizable Monogram Canvas in 1896. The Monogram Canvas is a bold pattern composed of quatrefoils, flowers, and interlocking Louis Vuitton initials. Most often, the Monogram Canvas is accentuated with the tan Vachetta cowhide leather, which over time develops a patina.
Before this creation, Georges Vuitton had designed the checkered Damier canvas in 1888 and re-introduced it in 1998 as Damier Ebene. Since then, the brown pattern has appeared in other colorways, such as the white and grey Azur. The Damier Azur is a lighter interpretation, inspired by the French Riviera, which debuted in 2006.
In 2009 for the Cruise Collection, Louis Vuitton released the three limited-edition styles of Galliera: the Riviera, Smeralda, and Amalfitana.
Named after the French Riviera, the eye-catching and colorful Riviera Galliera is crafted from canvas, printed with a motif of said riviera.
The Smeralda Galliera, named after Costa Smeralda in Nothern Sardinia, has a python exterior and lambskin interior.
The Amalfitana Galliera gets its name from the Amalfi Coast and is made from Raffia Hemp, detailed with an enlarged version of the monogram.
Regardless of which style you choose, the LV Galleria will be your new go-to bag!
