Ahead of the opening of a new flagship store in Osaka, Louis Vuitton revisits the strong ties the Maison has developed with Japan since the late 19th century.

    From the “mon” - family crest - inspiration of the Monogram canvas, to the long list of renowned Japanese clients, Louis Vuitton has always maintained strong ties with the Land of the Rising Sun. The opening of the first Louis Vuitton store on Japanese soil in 1978 in the Tokyo district of Kioicho allowed the Monogram to permeate the collective conscience of local artistic minds. This exchange was raised to new levels by the memorable interpretations of iconic designs imagined by Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami, and Rei Kawakubo, and again in 2016 when the landmark “Volez Voguez Voyagez” exhibition dedicated to Louis Vuitton’s heritage traveled to Tokyo. 

    From the very foundations of the Maison, the connection between Louis Vuitton and Japan is driven by a common fascination – two worlds capable of combining absolute respect for tradition with a strong desire for modernity.
