I quite love it when I forget to visit The Selby for a while. What's the expression? All good things comet to those who wait...? And this, would be that good thing: "Here are some of my favorite images from my shoots of the Louis Vuitton family home and the Louis Vuitton bag workshop in Asnières. These images were part of a collaboration that I did with Louis Vuitton's Men's Press Office relating to the Fall 2010 Louis Vuitton Men's Collection." - Todd Selby, The Selby. Ever wondered where Louis Vuitton Handbags come from? There are a bunch of factories producing Louis Vuitton goods around the world today, but from from 1959 to 1977, Asnières was the only production facility. The spectacular success of his now famous "flat trunk" forced Louis Vuitton to look beyond his original workshop in central Paris, and he decided to move production out of the city to Asnières.
