    Resource your bottle for long-lasting luxury

    Since its founding, Louis Vuitton has sought to create objects that last, articles that are passed down from generation to generation. Naturally, its perfume bottles, which are refillable, carry on this sustainable tradition.

    To have a bottle refilled, one needs to simply bring it to the nearest of the House’s boutiques. Each store maintains various perfume fountains, avant-garde tools developed specially for these bottles and exclusive to Louis Vuitton. In the space of a few seconds, the empty bottle is once again full, without ever having been opened, as if it were a sort of futuristic capsule. Not a drop of fragrance is lost. The perfume never comes in contact with the surrounding air, and so remains perfectly intact, identical to the original. The House’s bottles are thus an effective and innovative way of helping to preserve the environment. 

    They are also a way to pay homage to the Fontaines Parfumées, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud’s workshop in Grasse, in Provence, where perfume bottles were already being refilled at the source starting last century.

  • REOPENING OF LA GALERIE ASNIÈRES

    Every weekend from April 8th to May 21st, la Galerie will reopen its doors to the public.

    The Asnières atelier is a pivotal location. 

    Barely five years after founding Louis Vuitton, Louis himself began to outgrow his Parisian headquarters. In 1859, he relocated the new workshop to Asnières, a village a few kilometers northwest of Paris.

    This new atelier was built in the ethereal Eiffel style, combining glass and steel. The exceptional savoir-faire of the Asnières artisans is such that, even today, key pieces are created here: rigid trunks, designs in rare or exotic leathers, special orders. 

    Visit Asnières to discover the intimate aspects of Louis Vuitton’s history, its ties with the ateliers, and admire in detail the presence of the Louis Vuitton universe in every creation.

    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

    On December 16th, 2016, Louis Vuitton officially opens its doors at Kurfürstendamm number 185, thereby remaining loyal to this prestigious boulevard over three decades.

    After opening its first store in the German capital thirty years ago in 1986, the luxury brand is now officially about to reveal the face of its newest store. Set in a historic building on Kurfürstendamm at number 185, Louis Vuitton's loyalty to this highly prestigious avenue in Berlin spans three decades.

    The building and its interior were designed by New York architect Peter Marino. The interior space is flooded with light so, with every step, the visitor is immersed further into the exclusive heritage and craftsmanship of the Maison.

    The new store will display all men's and women's collections: leather goods, ready-to-wear, accessories and small leather goods, shoes, watches and jewellery. A section of the floor space will be dedicated to travel, a key element of the business since 1854, and will showcase the most up-to-date luggage items such as the iconic Keepall and the Horizon - the innovative, wheeled case for the cosmopolitan traveller of the 21st century. The product offer is being extended with a new universe: Les Parfums Louis Vuitton, created by the brand’s master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud.
