    After the success of the past three editions, the Journées Particulières reopened the doors to Louis Vuitton's ateliers last week-end, on October 12th, 13th and 14th, 2018.

    The driving theme behind the Journées Particulières was to enable more visitors to discover the inner workings of our, often secular, continually innovative Houses which form part of our heritage. The 4th edition focused on experiences, interaction and encounters. Each venue offered a unique and original tour, designed by the host House.

    In addition to the Louis Vuitton Workshops in Asnières, France, and Fiesso d'Artico in Veneto, Italy, two new locations were opened to the public this year: Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse, South of France, and the Louis Vuitton Ducey Workshop, in Normandy, France.

    Photographs in order of appearance: Les Fontaines Parfumées (x3), Fiesso d'Artico (x2), Asnières (x2), and Ducey Workshop (x1).

  • SAVOIR-FAIRE FOR THE CUSTOM "THE MILKMAID" TRUNK

    Learn about the special-order trunk created to protect Vermeer's "The Milkmaid" on its voyage from Amsterdam to Tokyo.

    In 1924, Louis Vuitton made a trunk for the French gallerist René Gimpel, enabling him to travel worldwide and present works of art to his clients. Since then, the Maison has been entrusted by clients around the world to transport their art and supplies, creating cases that protect and transport their belongings in the most optimal conditions. In continuing with this heritage, the Rijksmuseum entrusted Louis Vuitton to create a special-order trunk to transport the masterpiece The Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer during its voyage from Amsterdam to Japan.

    The trunk, handcrafted in Louis Vuitton’s historic workshops in Asnières, France, has been meticulously produced to house the painting. Adorned in the iconic Monogram canvas and the signature brass corners and lock, the trunk features personalized hand-painted stripes along with a yellow-coloured interior evoking the main colors of the masterpiece.

  • FRENCH ART DE VIVRE
    ‘LOUIS VUITTON AND LONDON’

    • FRENCH ART DE VIVRE ‘LOUIS VUITTON AND LONDON’  - Louis Vuitton Heritage NEWS
    Introducing French Art de Vivre ‘Louis Vuitton and London,’ which celebrates the house’s savoir-faire and its continuing spirit of innovation. 

    Featuring a remarkable collection of the house’s archive trunks, it acknowledges Louis Vuitton’s history with London that began when Georges Vuitton opened his first London store on March 1st 1885. Located on 289 Oxford street it was the first international store outside of France.

    Proud of his family’s heritage and keen to promote both his design skills and France’s influence abroad he incorporated the French tricolour flag in his signage. He placed a similar sign in a display window of his London store, along with one of the Vuitton trunk-beds that French officers took on their missions overseas, kickstarting the idea of whimsical window dressing.

    In 1889, Georges opened a new store opposite Charing Cross, one of London’s main railway stations. Later in 1900, to reflect the sophistication of the house’s designs, Georges decided to relocate to the heart of London’s luxury goods district, at 149 New Bond Street, close to where the current store currently stands today.
