The Vuitton family has played an important role in the history of the Louis Vuitton brand, contributing to its development, preservation and legacy.

Third of the generation of Vuittons, Gaston-Louis had many interests which all played a fundamental role in the history of the House. Guided by his curiosity, his vision of travel and an endless thirst for knowledge, all his passions have, directly or indirectly, influenced the development of the family business.


A great scholar and fine collector since his childhood, Gaston-Louis has accumulated many trunks and old travel objects from antique shops and auctions, but also books, typography works and, more particularly, countless labels. hotels (those found on customers' luggage). 

He also expressed his sense of architecture and design through avant-garde artistic collaborations, producing objects that are as functional as they are aesthetic, including small boxes, bottles, toilet bags.


Such as the "despatch box" suitcase or the series of bottles, are elements developed by the House in order to diversify its activities and technical approaches.

The suitcase, which was his personal briefcase, is the very symbol of this excellent know-how always associated with a unique functionality, represented here by a slit on the side, allowing its owner to slip in his letters and documents confidentially.
