    • ALPS PATCHES CAPSULE COLLECTION - Louis Vuitton Fashion NEWS
    Louis Vuitton's new men's capsule collection travels to the Alps for a selection of patch-covered leather goods, accessories and read-to-wear pieces.

    Patches have evolved from their initial function of simple identification to become the object of avid collectors around the world. The introduction of patches as souvenirs dates to the 19th century, the same period during which Louis Vuitton first created innovative trunks covered of hotel stickers for a new era of travel. Today, the Maison incorporates this tradition with this new capsule collection, emblazoning original patches on pieces such as the classic Keepall bag.

    For this year's collection, the Alps are the chosen destination, lending their natural beauty to the graphic designs. The mountainous landscape has been interpreted into three types of embroidered, embossed leather, and tufted patches for an overall adventurous style. Find this new seasonal collection online and in stores now.

  • ESPACE LOUIS VUITTON MÜNCHEN: SOPHIE CALLE – L'HOTEL / VOIR LA MER

    • ESPACE LOUIS VUITTON MÜNCHEN: SOPHIE CALLE – L'HOTEL / VOIR LA MER - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    The Espace Louis Vuitton München is pleased to present two series from French artist Sophie Calle’s oeuvre from September 19, 2018 to February 24, 2019.

    For the sixth exhibition of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s "Hors-les-murs" programme, this exhibition presents eight video works (Voir la mer, 2011) and six photographic pieces (L’Hôtel, 1981-1983) attesting to Calle’s defining work, ranging from self-investigative encounters in the 1980s to the altruistic investigations of recent years. The videos in Voir la mer each consists of a screen presenting a participant on his or her first revelatory experience of seeing the sea in Istanbul. L’Hôtel comprises of photographic and written documentations produced by the artist during a three-week stint as a hotel maid in Venice, whereby she investigates the perceived lives of total strangers via their belongings and patterns of temporary habitation.

    Through these two series, Calle invites the viewer to be a witness to her creative sojourns, unwittingly converting them from innocent bystander to complicit voyeur and intimate collaborator. By demolishing the boundaries between performance and adventure, the anonymous and the intimate, the permitted and the forbidden, she offers a safe place to reflect on one’s habitual practices, material possessions and own purpose.
