    Louis Vuitton announces the opening of a temporary store at The Dubai Mall, United Arab Emirates.

    While the main Louis Vuitton store at the Dubai Mall is closed for renovations, the Maison is opening a temporary store on the Fashion Avenue, showcasing ready-to-wear, leather goods, accessories, shoes, watches, jewelry, sunglasses, fragrances and the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection.

    Divided into womenswear and menswear, the temporary store décor pays homage to the United Arab Emirates and more specifically to Dubai through LED screens across the structure’s external walls, which display cultural, regional references such as the Burj Khalifa or the Palms, among others. The temporary store also features a 3D installation of a 5-meter-long Louis Vuitton logo in crystal, hung from the mall’s central dome.

    Within the temporary store, clients will also discover a blend of local symbols mixed with vintage Parisian iconography - a perfect example the Art of Travel.

    From October 31, 2019 to January 19, 2020, the Fondation Louis Vuitton presents eight works from the Collection for the inauguration of this new venue.

    On the occasion of its opening, the Espace Louis Vuitton Seoul is proud to announce the presentation of an exhibition dedicated to major artist Alberto Giacometti. This presentation has been produced in the framework of the Fondation Louis Vuitton's "Hors-les-murs" programme, showcasing holdings of the Collection at the Espaces Louis Vuitton in Tokyo, Munich, Beijing and now Seoul, thus carrying out the Fondation's intent to mount international projects and make them accessible to a broader public.

    Giacometti's work combined daily experience of the model with timeless forms of ancient references. As the bodies he sculpted became thinner, and with a sense of lingering failure over his inability to reproduce his models as he perceived them, he achieved extreme simplification of the forms, reducing them to the essential lines of their precarious existence. His oeuvre, ranging from his early surreal objects to his late delicate silhouettes, constitutes a undeniable milestone in the Art History.

    For its very first exhibition, the Espace Louis Vuitton Seoul presents eight emblematic sculptures by Giacometti, that belong to the Collection : Tête sur tige [Head on a rod] (1947), Trois hommes qui marchent [Three men walking] (1948), Homme qui chavire [Man who capsizes] (1950), Femme de Venise III [Woman of Venice III] (1956), Grande Femme II [Tall Woman II] (1960) and Têtes d’homme [Heads of a man] (Lotar I), (Lotar II) and (Lotar III) (1964-65). These works, considered as key masterpieces of Giacometti’s oeuvre, pay tribute to the virtuosity of the iconic Swiss artist.

  • REOPENING ON 24TH OCTOBER: THE NEW BOND STREET MAISON

    The doors to 17-20 New Bond Street, home to Louis Vuitton since 2010, will reopen on 24th October.

    After 14 months of renovations, 17-20 New Bond Street will reopen on 24th October, unveiling a metamorphosis that has transformed the store, where two different buildings are combined into one new location.

    The complete reimagining of the space on New Bond street, starting from its reconstructed exterior to its new generation of interiors, was rendered by New York based architect Peter Marino. Complete with illustrious artwork and giant architectural spaces, the store features seating and furniture custom made by Marino, who also curated important vintage pieces from designers including Enzo Mari and Pierre Paulin.

    Address: 17-20 New Bond Street, London W1S 2RB
