About

Rare and collectible, special edition, authentic LOUIS VUITTON Damier Graphite Christopher PM Backpack with Louis Vuitton un-customized factory retro style LV travel decals as part of the pattern is crafted of Louis Vuitton signature Damier black and grey checkered coated canvas. This very attractive design is the result of the imagination of British artist and fashion designer, Kim Jones, Artistic Director of Men's Collections at Louis Vuitton from 2011-2018. Kim Jones is known as the designer who brought streetwear to Louis Vuitton, and as "King of the Collaborations". Jones is currently Dior Homme’s artistic director of ready-to-wear and accessories. Prior to his tenure at Louis Vuitton, Jones was famous for his own label, "Kim Jones" between 2004 and 2008. The bag features two external flap pockets with black belts and black snap closures, adjustable black fabric shoulder straps, a top leather grip and a cross over top flap with adjustable belts and black snaps. The top flap opens to a very spacious black fabric interior with zipper and patch pockets. Top opening can be cinched with cord and grommet details. This is an excellent backpack, ideal for everyday use, by Louis Vuitton. There are scuffs on the snaps as shown in photos from use, but other than that the backpack is in very good condition.

About Louis Vuitton (Manufacturer)

The Louis Vuitton story is one of craft and innovation in the worlds of fashion, jewelry, furniture and more.


The company’s modest origins can be traced back to when its founder, Louis Vuitton (1821–92), wishing to free himself from the conventional lifestyle in his provincial French city of Anchay as well as a difficult stepmother, left in the early 1830s to make a new life in Paris. The young Vuitton was 13 at the time and would need to travel on foot to get to the capital, which was hundreds of miles away. With stops along the way to make money so that he could forge ahead, the journey took a couple of years, but reward was close at hand.


When he arrived in Paris, Vuitton made a living with his hands. He toiled as a box maker and packer for more than a decade and built relationships with royals and members of the upper class while working for the empress of France, Eugenie de Montijo. In 1854, Vuitton launched his namesake company. The craftsman opened a humble workshop on rue Neuve des Capucines and advertised his services with a small poster that read: “Securely packs the most fragile objects. Specializing in packing fashions.”


Long before his brand would become known globally for its exemplary top-handle bags and stylish totes, Vuitton produced stackable and rectangular trunks. The most common trunks of the era were round, which weren’t ideal for toting and storing. In 1858, Vuitton debuted his lightweight, handcrafted canvas trunks, which were sturdy, rugged and equipped with convenient compartments. Travel’s popularity broadened in the late 19th century, and Vuitton’s trunks could easily be packed into train cars and ships — upright trunks meant hanging wardrobe storage that would allow his clients to transport their sophisticated garments without worry. Demand increased and the company grew. When Louis Vuitton died in 1892, control of the luxury house was passed onto his only son, Georges Vuitton.


In 1914, a Louis Vuitton store opened at 70 Champs-Élysées. The largest travel-goods store in the world at the time, it became the company’s flagship.


The Louis Vuitton brand embodies all the attributes of luxury, from the craftsmanship, exclusivity and relevance to heritage. It’s only appropriate that it boasts one of the most recognizable insignias — the imaginative interlocking of letters and fleurettes — in the fashion world. The famous LV monogram was first used in 1896 as part of an initiative by Georges to prevent counterfeiting of his coveted new line of travel trunks. It’s one of the earliest examples of fashion branding.


The LV monogram would soon appear on everything from bags and various fashion accessories to alligator-skin champagne cases, from watches and earrings to teddy bears and airplane models.


At 1stDibs, the unmistakable insignia can be found on both modern and vintage Louis Vuitton shoulder bags, suitcases, original 19th-century trunks and more.
