    Louis Vuitton has opened a new store in the One Monte-Carlo disctrict on 21 February 2019, near the iconic Hôtel de Paris.

    The various parts of the store are connected with a large central staircase crafted from metal and wood that recalls the deck of a boat, a subtle reminder of the Principality’s ties with the sea.

    Art and Design have always been synonymous with the history of Louis Vuitton, especially through the many collaborations with various artists. In line with this tradition, Louis Vuitton commissioned an exclusive work by Thai artist Somsak Hanumas representing the flag of Monaco, which is displayed in the private mezzanine apartment. Along with the rest of the store, this intimate space is furnished in vintage Art Deco style.

    Some exceptional pieces are available to celebrate the store opening such as the Petite Boite Chapeau in beige Epi leather and the Cannes bag in Epi Bleuet leather, as well as other outstanding pieces in exotic leather such as the Capucines Mini in Baïkal Blue and the Petite Malle in Céladon Green.

    As a nod to the Principality and the Maison’s signature idea of travel, Louis Vuitton chose the store’s mezzanine level to exhibit a historic trunk that belonged to Princess Charlotte of Monaco, the mother of Prince Rainier III. Just before her wedding in May 1920, Princess Charlotte of Monaco bought luggage items to make up a set of trunks that she planned to use on future journeys. The Princess selected a piece covered with the famous Monogram canvas to carefully store her toiletries and accessories from her elegant wardrobe. She requested that the luggage be decorated with red and white bands and diamond shapes, in reference to her family’s collection of weaponry.

    • 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 116 sqm space is dedicated to the House’s signature items and features a selection of leather goods, footwear and accessories for both men and women, including watches, jewellery, fragrance and Louis Vuitton City Guides.
