• L’AVENTURE POP UP STORE

    On September 12th, L’Aventure, a Louis Vuitton exclusive pop-up store located 22 avenue Montaigne in Paris, will open its door to the public until December 31st.

    "The Monogram must have been sent round every airport carousel in the world, and been through every cruise Terminal and train station. The legendary signature has adventure embedded in its core."
    Tyler Brulé

    Created in collaboration with multi-faceted editor Tyler Brulé, this unprecedented space will highlight Louis Vuitton’s expert authority on travel. To accompany globetrotters from the past to the present, wherever they may roam, this store will offer not only specific and exclusive products, but also a number of unique services. This include Personalisation (special orders, My Monogram service, painting or hot stamping), the Art of Packing (which calls to mind Louis Vuitton’s original profession as “clothes packer”), or repair and after-sales support by our expert craftsmen.

    From trunk beds destined for expeditions on the African continent to luggage designed to equip half-track vehicles across Asia, adventure is intrinsic to Louis Vuitton. The House pays tribute to this thirst for conquering the unknown and celebrates elegance on the move with luggage in the legendary Monogram canvas, travel accessories and looks for the modern traveller.

    Louis Vuitton will showcase the exhibition ‘Timeless Muses’ at the Tokyo Station Hotel from August 31st until September 23rd.

    Louis Vuitton has been inspired by a number of fascinating women throughout the history of the House. Some have a long-standing relationship with Louis Vuitton and others have inspired products or entire collections. One woman in particular, the Empress Eugènie, played a key role in the life of Louis Vuitton himself. Her aura, influence and passion for travel fuelled his worldwide fame and she became the house’s first and devoted ambassadress.

    The exhibition ‘Timeless Muses’, which is hosted in the recently renovated Tokyo Station Hotel, allows visitors to discover not only Empress Eugènie but also five other fascinating women who are part of the Louis Vuitton story. Charlotte Perriand, Françoise Sagan, Catherine Deneuve, Kate Moss and Sofia Coppola all light up the world around them and possess an individual vision. Adventuresses, pioneers and conquerors of a world in motion, these six women are Louis Vuitton’s muses.

    Open now to the public, the exhibition ‘Timeless Muses’ uses immersive digital technology to enable visitors to discover these six exceptional women.

  • TAXI ENCOUNTERS - RIO DE JANEIRO

    The fourth in a travel series about unique taxi experiences in the cities of the world.

    As a traveler, often our first impression of a city and its people is the journey from station or airport in a taxi. From the black cabs encircling the thoroughfares of London, to the taxi boats of Venice, not forgetting the iconic Tuk Tuks of Thailand, the unique taxis of different cities have become iconic and the journeys in them defining moments in our encounters with the cities they frequent.

    In the fourth part in Louis Vuitton’s travel series ‘Taxi Encounters’ we find ourselves in Rio de Janeiro, beneath the Corcovado and towering landscapes of this coastal paradise. Rio de Janeiro, meaning literally ‘January River’, is known throughout the world for its natural scenery, famous beaches such as Copacabana and Ipanema as well as Brazilian dance and music genres samba and bossa nova.

  • GOING WITH THE FLOW

    As part of Louis Vuitton mini-site louisvuitton-histoires.com, discover this short animated film following the Louis Vuitton’s luggage along the decade.

    At the dawn of the 20th century, luggage crafted by Louis Vuitton, most famously the Wardrobe trunk and the Steamer bag, accompanied passengers on the world’s first transatlantic liners. The legend lives on today.

    What a distance we have travelled since the advent of the transatlantic liner. From a time when Louis Vuitton trunks accompanied their owners on the long ocean crossing, to the high-speed journeys of today, with a Keepall on our shoulder or a trolley case in our hand.

    Since 1854, Louis Vuitton has explored new frontiers and pushed the limits of innovation. A pioneering spirit defines its history, and the technological advances in the transportation system fired the imagination of the House. This four-wheel trolley, the Zéphyr, is in line with this inventive spirit.

  • STREET ART ON SILK

    STREET ART ON SILK - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    Discover the new collaboration between Louis Vuitton and street artists through a collection of giant squares.

    Louis Vuitton has invited three street artists – Eko Nugroho from Indonesia, EINE from London, and Franco-Tunisian eL Seed – to bring their vision on the House’s giant square. This new collaboration follows up last season’s initiative to work with the Street Art scene, with pieces from AIKO, RETNA and Os Gemeos.

    The excitement of travel is at the heart of EINE’s piece, through the phrase “Great Adventures” written in his emblematic bright and colourful block letters. The mix of pop influences and more traditional inspirations can be seen in Eko Nugroho’s intriguing designs, while eL Seed uses Arabic Calligraffiti to draw upon the Monogram pattern.
