1892 : Louis Vuitton dies, leaving his son in control of the company.

1992 : "The Duchess of Windsor," reports Jody Shields in Pandora Luxurye, "traveled with 118 Louis Vuitton trunks, each one painted with her full title and a number. A list of contents was pasted on the inside of each trunk; both maids carried a copy of the master list. Fashion diva Diana Vreeland was maniacal in her own way, sending her Vuitton luggage out to be polished after every single voyage."
