• THE VUITTON NEW RUNNER: AN EVOLVED SNEAKER DESIGN

    Resulting from innovative research and development, the Vuitton New Runner optimizes high performance and high style.

    The ultra-lightweight design simultaneously addresses active and aesthetic criteria: a supple, all-knit body meets a sleek, supportive sole hand-assembled from three pieces of resistant material. Made in Italy, the V.N.R advances Louis Vuitton’s tradition of savoir-faire through unique technical details. The seamless upper, for instance, weighs a mere 60 grams, while the gradient colour on the aerodynamic outsole is painted by hand using a technique that is rarely applied outside the auto industry.
    Currently available in denim blue, space gray, pure white and intense black, the Vuitton New Runner signals irrefutable cachet, thereby positioning it as a power player within the competitive world of men's trainers.

  • ESPACE LOUIS VUITTON BEIJING : RICHARD PRINCE

    • ESPACE LOUIS VUITTON BEIJING : RICHARD PRINCE - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    For its third exhibition, the Espace Louis Vuitton Beijing presents Cowboys, a presentation dedicated to Richard Prince.

    Prince is a major proponent of appropriation art, deconstructing the mechanisms of representation and communication promoted by American popular culture. The three Cowboys series, selected from the Collection as part of the Fondation Louis Vuitton « Hors-les-murs » program, show the mythical figure of the cowboy turned into a complex object by the means of ‘re-photography’, expressing a feeling of nostalgia for a foundational period while highlighting its stereotype through the use of “clichés”.

    Dubbed V.N.R (Vuitton New Runner), Louis Vuitton's new trainers boast a technical elegance that has already earned them iconic status.

    Lightweight, flexible and leading-edge, the V.N.R combines know-how and aesthetics in one. One year's research and development was required to manufacture these trainers with an urban flair. They take their inspiration from the house's heritage, while meeting the demands of style and technical expertise.

    Comfortably wrapping the foot to provide extra support, they are crafted in an ultra-light breathable knit, while the three-piece outsole is assembled by hand. The crowning detail is the gradient hand-painted sole, which adds a touch of modern sophistication. The model is initially available in four colours: denim blue, space grey, pure white and bold black.

    Discover the V.N.R collection.
