Africa, as the home of modern civilisation, is the inspiration for Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2017 men’s collection.

    It is also a metaphor - of a return to roots, to heritage, to formative influences, to the blueprint.

    Throught the last campaign with Xavier Dolan as face, these themes are explored literally and figuratively. Africa is evoked through rich, intricate textile treatments, exotic skins, a menagerie of animal prints. In a continuation of his first Louis Vuitton show about his childhood in Kenya and Bostwana, Kim Jones, Men’s Artistic Director revisits Africa today, expressing notions of the safari and the gentleman traveller. The palette is dominated by Savannah-bleached shades; jackets have Saharienne detailing.

    The Fondation Louis Vuitton presents the exhibition "Icons of Modern Art. The Shchukin Collection" until 5 March 2017.

    The exhibition pays tribute to one of the early 20th century’s greatest art patrons, Sergei Shchukin, a visionary collector of French modern art. The 130 works on loan from the Pushkin Museum in Moscow and the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg demonstrate the collector’s daring artistic choices and the swiftness with which he brought together one of the most significant collections of modern art, including works by Monet, Matisse, Picasso, Gauguin, Cézanne, Le Douanier Rousseau, and Derain, amongst many other artists. The exhibition also highlights the vivid dialogue between French modern art and the rising Russian avant-garde art, featuring works by artists such as Malevitch, Rodtchenko, Tatlin and Gontcharova who were familiar with the Shchukin collection.
    Between 27 February and 5 March, the Fondation will open from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (and until 1 a.m. on Saturday, 4 March). Enjoy these exceptional extended hours to admire from dawn to night time the masterpieces collected by Sergei Shchukin, which are now gathered for the first time outside of Russia.
    Immerse yourself  in the collection’s history and let yourself be swept into the colourful hues of Matisse or Gauguin.

    Louis Vuitton is delighted to open a Pop Up store at ifc mall Hong Kong, dedicated to the Spring-Summer 2017 men's collection, from February 15th until March 10th.

    Louis Vuitton opens a Pop Up store at ifc mall Hong Kong, dedicated to the Spring-Summer 2017 menswear collection by Louis Vuitton Men's Artistic Director, Kim Jones. From February 15th until March 10th 2017, discover a unique selection that combines the inspiration of Africa with the rebellion of London Punk and emblematic savoir-faire of the Maison.

    “There’s always something a little London hidden somewhere, though. This time it is the influence of Punk - albeit via Africa, where Frank Marshall’s “Renegades” portrait series of Botswana biker gangs in heavy leather depicts the fusion of two disparate aesthetics. Add a third, the French elegance of Louis Vuitton.“ says Kim Jones.

    Louis Vuitton presents the exhibition “Louis Vuitton and Issoudun, 100 years of Leather Goods” from February 11th until April 9th, 2017.

    Louis Vuitton celebrates the 100th anniversary of La Maroquinerie de l’Indre, a leather goods workshop acquired by Louis Vuitton in the 1980s, with an exhibition retracing a century of craftsmanship in the heart of Issoudun in central France.

    The complementary stories of the two entities are narrated through 70 emblematic pieces. A Gray Trianon Trunk from the 19th century opens the exhibition which guides visitors through the evolution of the handbag, from the early sac plat to Louis Vuitton’s iconic bags, still crafted today in Issoudun. The unique know-how of craftsmen, their taste for innovation as well as their passion transmitted from generation to generation is at the core of this exhibition.

    36100 Issoudun, France
    From February 11th until April 9th
    Opening hours: from Wednesday to Sunday, 10 am - 12 pm and 2 pm - 6 pm.
