  • LOUIS VUITTON REVEALS ITS SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENTS IN PARIS

    • LOUIS VUITTON REVEALS ITS SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENTS IN PARIS - Louis Vuitton Heritage NEWS
    From 29 August to 10 October 2018 at Galeries Lafayette, the Maison is taking part in the Go For Good movement, a natural echo of its sustainable creative experience.

    Galeries Lafayette initiated the Go For Good movement with a view to highlighting brands’ environmental, social and local commitments.
    Given its history, Louis Vuitton naturally falls within the scope of this movement and focuses on three cherished sectors in the Maison’s heritage.
    Fine Leather Goods, the quintessence of Louis Vuitton, embodies a strong Environmental commitment through its famous natural cowhide leather, which is tanned using plant extracts.

    Fragrance takes an innovative approach through the eco-design of the bottles. They can be refilled at perfume fountains, making them customisable and eco-responsible in equal measure.

    When it comes to Social responsibility, the UNICEF charity bracelets combine fashion and generosity. Louis Vuitton donates 40% of the bracelets’ value to protecting the most vulnerable children.

    Last but not least, the Maison is proud to have been awarded the “Living Heritage Company” distinction in recognition of its Local know-how and traditional leather craftsmanship.

    These exceptional product sectors illustrate over twelve years of Louis Vuitton’s commitment to Sustainable Development.

  • LES VOYAGES DE JACQUES CAVALLIER BELLETRUD

    From the ends of the world to Grasse, discovering perfumery’s most luxurious raw ingredients.

    A native of Grasse, the cradle of both perfumery and leather work, Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud created each of his new men’s perfumes in his creative atelier at Les Fontaines Parfumées.

    In this Provençal estate, surrounded by flower fields and citrus groves, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud composes and formulates immobile journeys designed to take shape on the surface of the skin. To do so, he draws from the most exquisite raw materials in the world. He travels the five continents in quest of olfactory emotion: knows by heart all the steps necessary to cultivate Pallida iris and Peruvian balsam, the artisanal harvesting of which he tracks in Salvador; negotiates the quality of citrus with growers in Calabria, and purchases the most aromatic cocoa beans on the Ivory Coast, as well as Sambac jasmine in China. But once the ingredients are sourced, they are transported to his hometown of Grasse, and the transformation begins. Bolstered by the exceptional knowledge in Grasse where, from one generation to the next, experts perfect and transmit techniques for transforming raw materials and performing carbon dioxide extractions. Each petal is reverently respected; resulting in infusions so faithful to the original plant that they could already stand on their own as perfumes.
