CELEBRITY EN­COUN­TERS

ELLE (Malaysia) - - AGENDA -

Louis Vuit­ton was a celebrity favourite long be­fore ac­tresses started wear­ing its dresses or car­ry­ing its hand­bags. Kather­ine Hep­burn didn’t travel any­where with­out her Louis Vuit­ton lug­gage, Greta Garbo had a Louis Vuit­ton trunk just to hold her Sal­va­tore Fer­rag­amo shoes, and Sharon Stone com­mis­sioned the house to make her a van­ity case. El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor was also a fan, but her 1980s suit­case prob­a­bly wouldn't stand out if it weren't for its fa­mous owner and the home­made tag she cheek­ily at­tached to the han­dle, read­ing "MINE!"

Since in­tro­duc­ing ready-to-wear in 1997 un­der the cre­ative di­rec­tion of Marc Ja­cobs and now Ni­co­las Gh­esquière, Louis Vuit­ton has of course strength­ened its celebrity ties, so the ex­hi­bi­tion also in­cludes a num­ber of stand­out pieces worn by celebrity clients, in­clud­ing the se­quinned dress Tay­lor Swift wore to the 2016 Met Gala.
