Louis Vuitton Sunglasses

A Favorite of the Stars

Louis Vuitton is one of the world's most prestigious luxury goods manufacturers in the world. The company was originally founded by Louis Vuitton and has been passed down through 3 generations of the Vuitton family. After his death in 1892, Louis' son George took over the company. After countless years of success, George died in 1936 and passed the company on to his son Gaston-Louis. The company continued to soar to great heights, even after Gaston-Louis' death in 1969.

In 1987, Louis Vuitton merged with another highly established luxury goods company, Moet Hennessey to form LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessey). In 1998, LVMH entered the world of haute couture fashion with the designs of Marc Jacobs. Currently, LVMH is owned by President Yves Carcelle who continues to create finely crafted luggage, clothing, handbags, shoes, perfume and sunglasses.
