Les Parfums Louis Vuitton - A journey that begins on bare skin
Since its founding, the Maison Louis Vuitton has always been inspired by far flung destinations and driven to accompany voyagers wherever they travel.
Metaphorically, travel is not a destination: it is a feeling that constantly nourishes body and soul, a new experience that can make your heart skip, leaving an everlasting memory.
The savoir-faire of Les Parfums Louis Vuitton:
Master perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, a native of Grasse, the birthplace of both perfume and leather craftsmanship, spent months travelling the world in search of inspiration. Breathing the fragrance of exotic places and rare materials, he created Les Parfums Louis Vuitton: a journey of emotions.
Les Parfums Louis Vuitton: available from September 2016.
In May 2016, the “Louis Vuitton Travel Book” collection adds South Africa to its destinations and revisits the Paris edition.
It is now the turn of Brecht Evens, a young and talented author of graphic novels, to offer a fresh look at the city of Paris. While the painter Liu Xiaodong expresses his real experience of South Africa.
Each artist explores a country previously unknown to them. They confront an unfamiliar place with a viewpoint sharpened by the surprise of the unknown or stimulated by the pleasure of rediscovery.
Going beyond the pictorial vocation of these travel journals, the collection highlights the rich aesthetic horizons of today’s art. During their travels, these artists from various corners of the world were free to choose their mode of expression and communicated their views of other places through drawing, painting, collage, contemporary art, illustration, cartoons or manga.
For each new title, a limited edition of 30 copies numbered and signed by the artist will be available in selected Louis Vuitton stores. View the entire collection including the two new destinations here.
