    Louis Vuitton releases a new edition in its Fashion Eye book series devoted to Saint Tropez, through the lens of Osma Harvilahti.

    Finnish photographer Osma Harvilahti was chosen to share his understated and intimate view of Saint Tropez, the town on the French Riviera more often associated with the glamour of international jet set travelers. Harvilahti’s photographs have always been fundamentally documentary in nature, culled with spontaneity and nuance from the world around him. Making personal projects about the places he visits and the people he encounters along the way, he plucks out the most intimate and vivid details of his surroundings to fix within the frame.

    What began as an early interest in street photography, and a penchant for the pure lines and formal order of the Bauhaus movement, slowly evolved into a sensitivity towards curating and capturing the compositions of everyday phenomena. Harvilahti has honed a brightly colored, clean and graphic aesthetic that interrogates pattern, shadow, form, and surface with aching honesty.

    Louis Vuitton releases a new edition in its Fashion Eye book series devoted to the French Riviera, through the lens of Slim Aarons.

    Saint Tropez, Cannes, Antibes, Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, Monaco… the French Riviera is one of the most photogenic destinations that has long been favored by celebrities, socialites, and jet setters. Slim Aarons, the famed American photographer, saw his job as "photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places," making him a natural choice to capture the spirit of the French Riviera for Louis Vuitton’s Fashion Eye series.

    Slim Aarons began his career as a war photographer for US Army during World War II before contributing to the era’s most famous picture magazines such as Life, Holiday, Flair, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vogue. Known for his documentation of society’s elite at play and at parties, Aaron created a distinctive look that strongly influenced many fashion designers from the 1990s on. This new Louis Vuitton Fashion Eye brings together a selection of Aaron’s photographs taken in the French Riviera from the 1950s-1980s.

    The Fondation Louis Vuitton presents for the first time a significant selection of works from its Collection at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow: sixty pieces, by over twenty french and international artists, produced between 1947 and 2018. 

    This "Hors les murs" presentation represents the Fondation's commitment to modern and contemporary art. The curaturial choices for the exhibition have taken into account the specificities of the Pushkin State Museum and features a variety of monographic series and powerful works, from different media.

    Two spaces are dedicated to the Fondation's achitecture by Frank Gehry. Models, drawings, videos and panoramic photos are displayed, allowing the Russian public to picture the Fondation as an achitectural entity, as well as in its Parisian environment, at the heart of the Bois de Boulogne.

    Collection of Fondation Louis Vuitton: Selected Works is presented in conjunction with  another exhibition devoted to the Shchukin Collection. These two prominent collections will help visitors trace the similarities and differences in the collectors’ approaches and the evolution of contemporary art collecting from the early 20th to the early 21st centuries.
