    Milan, May 26th 2017 – Louis Vuitton opens the first permanent pop-up store of the House, in Milan, inside the Rinascente

    The concept of permanent pop-up store is a real innovation for the House: the pre-existent Louis Vuitton Rinascente store gets a new guise. The ground floor becomes a temporary store with a constantly changing product animation and interior design. This enables the House to show the public a variety of new products.

    The protagonist of this new opening is ‘Masters’, a collection of bags and accessories realized in collaboration with Jeff Koons, who brought imagery from his long-standing ‘Gazing Ball’ paintings ­– a series of large-scale hand-painted reproductions of works by the Old Masters – to a range of Louis Vuitton products.

    ‘Masters’ collection is only the first of the innovations that will animate the new permanent pop-up store Louis Vuitton, opening to public from May 26th and customised to recall the inspirations of the collaborations hosted inside.

    In partnership with Le French May, Louis Vuitton presents Time Capsule, from April 22nd until May 14th, a hand selected collection of objects and documents from the Louis Vuitton archive.

    Highlighting the ongoing technical innovations that Louis Vuitton employed to respond to the revolutionary inventions of the period, this exhibition builds a conversation between antique creations in direct dialogue with more contemporary pieces, showing a consistent desire of the brand to create and reinvent objects that are designed to anticipate the evolution of lifestyle needs and desires.

    The exhibition acts as a visual timeline of the most outstanding moments in the story of the Louis Vuitton Maison, telling the narrative through five key chapters: codes of the brand; journey around the world; elegance and beauty in motion; iconic pieces; concluding with a final chapter celebrating Louis Vuitton’s past and present links with Hong Kong.

  • LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK COLLECTION

    The Louis Vuitton TRAVEL BOOK Collection adds Hawaii, Mexico and Tokyo to its destinations. 

    On May 4, 2017, Louis Vuitton launches three new titles within its travel book Collection illustrated by artists from all around the world.

    Comic book artist Esad Ribic draws the Hawaiian islands in a vigourous and realistic style; while Nicolas de Crécy depicts Mexico as a baroque, feveris country, filled with poetry; and finally Eboy, pionneers of pixel art, gets to the very soul of Tokyo.

    Exhibitions of the original drawings will coincide with the launch of these books worldwide.

    The Louis Vuitton “Travel Book” collection is an invitation to real and virtual voyages, enriched by intellectual stimulation and poignant moments. In its pages, the illustrations of renowned artists and promising young talents tell the stories of the cities and countries they have visited, depicting each place’s varied architecture and special light, and recording the passing days and the lives of its people.

    For each new title, a numbered and signed limited edition is available in select Louis Vuitton stores. View the collection Here.
