The young boy drew his interpretation of the French luxury brand’s signature LV monogram

The life of a 13-year-old Parisian boy named Milan changed when his mother uploaded pictures of his sketches on Twitter.

She hoped that sharing his illustrations online would aid in landing him acclaim. The drawings, which have now gone viral, show Milan’s interpretation of Louis Vuitton’s apparel.

The young boy drew his interpretation of the French luxury brand’s signature LV monogram, which appears on most of its products, ranging from luxury bags and leather items to shoes, perfumes, watches, accessories, sunglasses, phone cases, and books.

In November 2023, the pictures of his sketches were picked up by French journalist Marie Gentric, who appealed to Louis Vuitton to assess Milan’s drawings.

According to Highsnobiety, once the brand got a hint of the boy’s budding talent, Louis Vuitton went ahead and offered him a week-long observational internship.

Now more than ever, landing a job in the fashion industry is being deemed lucrative, and the competition is fierce. There are universities around the globe dedicated to teaching the different aspects of design and consumer psychology. With the rise of social media and fashion influencers, people are more conscious of fashion trends, leading to a higher demand for unique and innovative representation.

In the brand’s past, Louis Vuitton has collaborated with designers such as Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and Yayoi Kusama. Their collaboration with Supreme proved to be a game changer in the fashion industry because it challenged the traditional norms of high-end fashion and streetwear. It also showed that collaborations between seemingly opposing brands could end in success.

In the first few days of 2024, Louis Vuitton also launched musician Pharrell Williams’s take on the classic Louis Vuitton Speedy bag. The new adaptation has taken the bag, originally made of brown canvas material, and introduced it in red, blue, green, and yellow. In 2023, it was announced that Williams would head menswear design for Louis Vuitton, stepping into the shoes of Virgil Abloh and becoming, after his predecessor, the second black man to take on the role.
