    Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce the reopening of its store in Florence, Italy, after renovations.

    Louis Vuitton reinforces its presence in the city of Florence by inaugurating a renovated store in the heart of the city, on the prestigious Piazza Strozzi. The architecture of the store could be considered in it of itself a masterpiece through the recreation of the space's historical volumes, prints, and decorations, all taken from original photos dating back to 1865 of the building that houses the store. The central staircase, visible from the front door, is a work of art and a feat of design: its handrail is completely covered with leather in a deep Florentine blue color that has been renowed since the Renaissance and by the Medici family.

    The renovated store now features a fantastic collection of vintage art pieces and furnishings. The finishes of the store have been carefully selected, paying great attention to the materials that nod to Italian traditions. The selection of artists who created the pieces in the store is international: Marius D. Keppler, Massimo Listri and other artists of the 1950's and 1970's. Inside the store, the customer can find the complete range of ready-to-wear, accessories, leather goods, women's and men's shoes, travel items, textiles, watches, jewelery and fragrances, as well as the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades Collection which makes its debut in Florence.

    A closer look at Nicolas Ghesquière's Fall-Winter 2019 Collection presented at the Louvre in Paris.

    The vibrant “sartorial melting pot” that has emerged in the area surrounding the Centre Pompidou in Paris was Nicolas Ghesquière’s primary inspiration for his Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter Collection. Through the combination of graphic juxtapositions, the clashing of cultural references, and the multiplicity of expressions, the Artistic Director follows in the footsteps of Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers, the museum’s architects, by deliberately inviting lively debate.

    Notable details include colorful re-interpretations of Louis Vuitton signatures such as with the Mini Luggage BB bag, as well as the application of the classic Monogram to novel forms as is the case with the playful Art Folder. Leather caps and flat square belt buckles on many of the models contribute to the overall celebration of the stylistic eclecticism of the decades that have passed since the Centre Pompidou’s founding in 1977.

  • WOMEN'S FALL-WINTER 2019: HIGHLIGHTS

    See highlights of the Louis Vuitton Fall-Winter 2019 show that took place at the Louvre in Paris.

    The Centre Pompidou Museum in Paris is an emblematic example of generational architecture, representing a captivating dialogue between a daring construction and a historic neighborhood. Since its inauguration in 1977, it deliberately invited debate, a debate which evolved with the decades that followed. The recreation of this monument to modernity for Nicolas Ghesquière's Fall-Winter 2019 Show pays homage to the clash of the old with the now, a signature preoccupation of Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director. 

    The Collection that was presented against this backdrop speaks to a vision of fashion that is sure of its potential and knows with conviction how to proceed. The enthusiasm of youth creates a foundation of stylistic certainty. Nicolas Ghesquière described the Centre Pompidou and surrounding area as “a fascinating incubator of a neighborhood. An incredible mélange, converging in the epicenter. The cliques, the styles, the life… I love that impression of a sartorial melting pot. Today, I’ve transposed it at Louis Vuitton: a House of multiple expressions."
