    Louis Vuitton is hosting a Savoir Faire Event in Milan where some of the Maison's artisans are present to share their expertise.

    The unique savoir-faire at Louis Vuitton's Asnières workshops in France is currently on display in Milan. One of the Maison's top artisans brings his extensive experience and precision in creating exceptional pieces,  highlighting the way traditional craftmanship lives on today.  

    Another example of the combination of personalization with innovation is a trunk pyramid that has transformed by the art of Flavio Carbonaro, an Italian painter renown for his pop art paintings. The unique creation emphasizes the deep relationship of the brand with the city of Milan where Louis Vuitton opened its first flagship in 1984.

  • REOPENING OF LA GALERIE ASNIÈRES

    Every weekend from September 21st to October 27th, la Galerie will reopen its doors to the public presenting an exhibition: Time Capsule.

    The Asnières atelier is a pivotal location. Barely five years after founding Louis Vuitton, Louis himself began to outgrow his Parisian headquarters. In 1859, he relocated the new workshop to Asnières, a village a few kilometers northwest of Paris. 

    This new atelier was built in the ethereal Eiffel style, combining glass and steel. The exceptional savoir-faire of the Asnières artisans is such that, even today, key pieces are created here: rigid trunks, designs in rare or exotic leathers, special orders. 

    From within its “Galérie” in Asnières, Louis Vuitton presents Time Capsule, a journey through the history of the House that revisits its landmark innovations in technology and design. Travelling from the House’s beginnings in 1854 to the present day, the story is told using rare and celebrated objects selected from the Louis Vuitton archive.

    The exhibition follows a visual timeline of landmark moments in the Louis Vuitton story, demonstrating the ways in which Louis Vuitton has anticipated the needs and desires of a changing world over 160 years generated by technological progress, with imaginative and ingenious new creations.

    In Time Capsule, heirloom designs live alongside some of the House’s most contemporary pieces, highlighting the ongoing commitment to constant innovation.

    Visit Asnières to discover the intimate aspects of Louis Vuitton’s history, its ties with the ateliers, and admire in detail the presence of the Louis Vuitton universe in every creation.

    A selection of  exceptional trunks and exotic bags on display at the Savoir Faire Event in Milan include pieces that are being showcased for the first time worldwide.

    The historic Asnières workshop in France has been the heart of Louis Vuitton's trunk making since 1859, where five hundred objects are handcrafted each year. In Milan, alongside iconic designs such as the wardrobe trunk, a selection of novelty hard-sided pieces such as a DJ trunk, a beauty bar trunk, and a picnic trunk are being showcased as examples of the bespoke special-order creations crafted for a wide variety of Louis Vuitton clients. For the Milan Event, a painter will be on hand to demonstrate the art of trunk painting and to highlight the personalization options currently available to clients. 

    In addition to the special trunks, Louis Vuitton is revealing a selection of exceptional crocodile leather bags where artisans have developed cutting-edge techniques or employed age-old traditions to take luxury to new heights of refinement.  Working with crocodile allows the Maison's legendary savoir-faire to create pieces that are not only sophisticated, but utterly contemporary. Also on display are various crocodile versions of iconic Louis Vuitton bags such as Capucines, Cannes, Dauphine Mini, Twist Mini and City Steamer Mini, as well as a selection of men's leather goods.

    The exhibition dedicated to French artist Christian Boltanski runs at Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo through November 17

    Christian Boltanski is a leading figure in contemporary art, considered as France’s most influential living artist. Since 1967, he has developed an artistic practice that embraces writing, film, sculpture and photography, with a focus on remembrance and time, infused with biographical milestones and references. Memory and its corollary, an obsession with avoiding forgetfulness and oblivion, are central to his vision, as is the ability to invent legends and myths. Animitas is one of his most ambitious projects: creating outdoor installations in secluded places, using bells to echo the configuration of stars on the night of his birth: September 6, 1944.

    As part of its ongoing “Hors-les-murs” programme, the Fondation Louis Vuitton is honoured to show the two last chapters of this series:  Animitas (La forêt des murmures, 2016) shot in Teshima in Japan, and Animitas (Mères mortes, 2017) filmed by the Dead Sea in Israel. These two pieces, which form part of the Collection, echo, according to the artist himself, “the music of the stars and the voices of the floating souls”.

    The Espace Louis Vuitton Tokyo, located at the 7th floor of the Louis Vuitton Omotesando store, is a glass box inviting to penetrate a paralel world. Its visually stimulating architecture and unique exhibition place encourages the presentation of major contemporary artworks.
