The Collection Of Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas
Georges Vuitton invented the signature Monogram Canvas in 1896. Then he patented the design worldwide and it successfully stopped the counterfeit. The symbols of the Monogram were inspired by the Japanese Mon designs from the Victorian era.
The Monogram Canvas is well-known in today’s high fashion. And it represents status, craftsmanship, style and the brand Louis Vuitton.
But throughout the years, there are many versions of the Monogram Canvas. Last year alone, there were more than 5 variations created of the Monogram Canvas including the Reversed Monogram. And belief me, there will be much more in the future.
So how can we keep track of all those different Monogram Canvas? How about putting them together under one roof?
Here are the types and the estimated release dates.
When thinking about Louis Vuitton, everyone points to the Monogram Canvas. But the Damier Canvas is actually much older. The Damier is invented in 1888 when Louis Vuitton was still alive and running the company.
The Monogram Infrarouge was introduced in the Spring Summer 2015 Collection. The red fire and bold type of the Monogram was unleashed like a bottle of poison. The combination of black and red is definitely eye-catching. We have written an overview of the Monogram Infrarouge Collection.
