Louis Vuitton Musette Salsa
In 1896, four years after Louis Vuitton died, his son released the house’s monogram. To both honor his late father and further dissuade counterfeiters, Georges Vuitton created a print that is now synonymous with the brand. Inspired by Japanese designs that were in fashion during the Victorian era, he complemented the ‘LV’ initials with diamond, circle, and quatrefoil symbols. Georges featured the pattern on cotton canvas, which was coated with PVC (now referred to as Louis Vuitton’s Monogram Coated Canvas). As it is durable, water resistant, lightweight, and recognizable, almost every style is still made of this material and it remains popular today.
