• LOUIS VUITTON OBJETS NOMADES

    Discover a preview of the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection ahead of Art Basel Hong Kong.

    For the second consecutive year, Louis Vuitton will showcase its Objets Nomades collection in Hong Kong. From March 23rd to March 31st 2019, the collection will be displayed exclusively within the former Central Magistracy, marking the first public opening of this historic building within the Tai Kwun complex following the completion of its revitalization.

    To mark the occasion, award-winning design duo Raw Edges will preview their latest Objet Nomade in Hong Kong before it is revealed to international press at Fuorisalone in Milan in April 2019.  Other new Objets Nomades for this year’s edition include Atelier Oi’s Serpentine table and Atelier Biagetti’s Anemona table.

    The full Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection will be displayed in a scenography created by the internationally acclaimed Joyce Wang Studio - best known for their cinematic interiors that take people on immersive journeys.  Visitors will walk into a grand, architectural space, an avant-garde home full of sensory stimulus. The archways, portals, niches and entryways all serve to frame this travelling collection, inviting interpretation and imagination.

  • REMEMBERING KARL LAGERFELD

    • REMEMBERING KARL LAGERFELD - Louis Vuitton Heritage NEWS
    • REMEMBERING KARL LAGERFELD - Louis Vuitton Heritage NEWS
    Louis Vuitton honors Karl Lagerfeld, a long-standing friend of the House.

    Louis Vuitton pays tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, who was much more than a singular and prolific fashion icon, but also a long-standing friend of the House.

    Lagerfeld’s iconoclastic approach to redefining fashion - particularly predicting and understanding the importance of ready-to-wear and knowing how to revitalize and reinvent brands - could be seen as the blueprint by which many fashion houses operate today.  As both a preeminent designer, fashion trouble-shooter and contemporary Renaissance man, Lagerfeld’s contributions to the fashion and luxury world are innumerable.

    Lagerfeld’s close relationship with Louis Vuitton brought about several collaborations, including a custom one-of-a-kind trunk to hold his collection of 20 iPods and sound equipment.

    For Louis Vuitton’s 2014 project “THE ICON AND THE ICONOCLAST: Celebrating Monogram”, Lagerfeld was one of six creatives chosen to show the distinctly personal side of the Monogram; re-presenting something we think we all know in an extraordinary, individual, and idiosyncratic way. Given carte blanche to dictate and make whatever he saw fit in the iconic canvas, Lagerfeld designed a collection of boxing gear: a large trunk for variously sized punching bags, boxing gloves, carrying case, and even an instructive mat. Of his contribution, he said “It is fun! In fact, I had several ideas and Louis Vuitton wanted to do them all – why not? … It was really very childish, simple thinking!”

    On news of Lagerfeld’s passing, Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke shared: “Karl adopted me when I was in need of a friend in Rome! We became partners in crime and wrote history on the Great Wall of China. Aim high, shoot for the stars. You will always be our guiding light.”

  • LES FONTAINES PARFUMÉES

    Louis Vuitton's perfumery Savoir-Faire comes together at Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse

    For  Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, a fragrance is both literally and figuratively an invitation to travel. He doesn’t just see a flower as a raw material, but “the starting point for a very intimate journey”. As a third generation perfumer and Grasse native, Louis Vuitton's Master Perfumer has created each of Louis Vuitton perfumes in his creative atelier at the  Fontaines Parfumées estate, inspired by his travels around the world to source the most precious of ingredients. Located in the South of France, the town of Grasse has been a traditional cradle for both the perfumery and leathermaking industries. As a child, Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud would pass in front of the Fontaines Parfumées on his way to school, and never dreamed that it would become his creative atelier 40 years later.

    In a video presenting both the historic estate and the precious ingredients, learn more about the creative atelier by following along with Louis Vuitton's Master Perfumer.
