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 Alpes 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.

Louis Vuitton arrives in 2 important cities at the end of this year: Campinas and Porto Alegre, which, for the first time, receive the French Maison.
The stores will be inaugurated in September and October and will land in these cities with an architecture project developed exclusively for Brazil. The design of the facades and interiors was inspired by the iconic Cocoon suspended chair and the iconic Bomboca sofa, developed by the Campana Brothers for the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection.
Located in the main shopping centers of the two cities, Iguatemi Campinas and Iguatemi Porto Alegre, the pop-up stores will present a selection of leather goods, accessories and shoes.
