    • THE COURTAULD COLLECTION AT FONDATION LOUIS VUITTON - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    From February 20th to June 17th 2019, the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris presents the collection of Samuel Courtauld, the English industrialist and patron of the arts.

    “The Courtauld Collection: A Vision for Impressionism” brings together some 110 works, including 60 paintings and graphic pieces, which are mainly conserved in the Courtauld Gallery or in different international public and private collections. It will enable the French public to discover some of the greatest French paintings from the end of the 19th century and from the very beginning of the 20th century in Paris, sixty years after their first presentation in 1955 at the Musée de l’Orangerie. These works include Un Bar aux Folies Bergère (1882) by Manet, La Jeune Femme se poudrant by Seurat (1889-90), Les Joueurs de cartes by Cézanne (1892-96), Autoportrait à l’oreille bandée by Van Gogh (1889), Nevermore by Gauguin (1897), as well as a set of ten watercolours by  J.M.W. Turner which belonged to Samuel Courtauld’s brother, Sir Stephen Courtauld.

    The exhibition of the Courtauld Collection embodies the Fondation’s aim to showcase the role of emblematic collectors from the history of art, following on from previous exhibitions such as  “Keys to a passion” (2014-2015), "Being Modern : Moma in Paris" (2017-2018), "Icons of Modern Art. The Shchukin Collection" (2016-2017) which brought together great works of Modernism, collected by prestigious institutions and visionary collectors.

  • THE NEW DAUPHINE BAG

    Inspired by a model from Louis Vuitton's archives, the new Dauphine bag has been redesigned for the modern era.

    Nicolas Ghesquière is known for his keen ability to explore and reinvent designs from Louis Vuitton's vast archives. The Women's Artistic Director's latest inspiration comes from the 1970's Dauphine bag, a compact model in classic Monogram canvas. With its new metallic LV closure, hexagonal chain strap, and adjustable leather strap that can be worn two ways, the new Dauphine bag makes the most of its heritage while adapting to modern lifestyles. Monogram lovers will appreciate the play on two versions of the iconic motif: the classic and the reverse. The new Dauphine bag revives a historical shape and elevates it to must-have status among Louis Vuitton's new leather goods icons.

    Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce the reopening of its store in Bologna, Italy, after renovations.

    Louis Vuitton reinforces its presence in the city of Bologna by inaugurating a renovated store in the historic Galleria Cavour, an exceptional location that has long been associated with luxury and elegance. Strategically located in the heart of Bologna, the modular architecture and the mix of various materials and textures give the space a unique contemporary feel: woods with different textural shades are matched to the Louis Vuitton leather that covers the walls. Together, the colour palette, use of marble, and choice of furnishings succeed in blending both past and present as well as French and Italian history.

    Among the wide selection of products offered at the new store, clients can discover the Maison’s personalisation services.  For the first time in Bologna, the MyLVBelt will be available, allowing the customisation of Men's belts with your choice of initials, materials including precious and exotic leathers, and buckles. Also exclusive to the Bologna store is a special stamp paying tribute to the Italian city with its two famous towers - Torre degli Asinelli and Torre Garisenda -  and the statue of the Neptune fountain. The new design can be applied with the hot stamping technique onto the Louis Vuitton accessory or bag of your choice.
    Come visit the newly renovated Bologna store, reopening on February 13th, 2019.
