    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.

  • LES PARFUMS LOUIS VUITTON TSUM POP UP STORE

    • LES PARFUMS LOUIS VUITTON TSUM POP UP STORE - Louis Vuitton Heritage NEWS
    Louis Vuitton opens pop-up store in TSUM department store in celebration of the launch of Les Parfums Louis Vuitton.

    The House will present its collection of fragrances in ephemeral space, inviting guests to discover this new universe describing a journey of the emotions. From the airiness of "Rose des Vents" to the intoxicating "Turbulences", the ecstasy of a first night with "Dans la Peau" to the mindful immersion in nature with "Apogée"; from the self-revealing "Contre Moi" to an exploration of a darker side with "Matière Noire" and the explosion of the senses with "Mille Feux"…
    The iconic Damier pattern which will adorn the counters, showcases a classical yet very modern interpretation of Louis Vuitton' signatures.

    Fragrances are deeply rooted in the House's heritage. Louis Vuitton returns to its roots 70 years after its last olfactory signatures, such as "Je, tu, il" and "Heures d’Absence", created in the late 20s. The fragrance savoir-faire has been revived with the help of Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud to reinvent a true craft and cultivate it over a long period of time.

    LES PARFUMS LOUIS VUITTON pop-up store at TSUM will be opened to public since 26 November, 2016 till 26 March, 2017.

    TSUM, 1st floor
    2, Petrovka Street
    Open hours: From Monday to Saturday to 10:00 to 22:00.
    Open from 11:00 until 22:00 Sunday.
