    We thank you all for your generosity and commitment.

    In January 2016, Louis Vuitton made a promise to help children in urgent need through its support for UNICEF.
    With your help, we have raised $4.8 million to do amazing things for children living in the most difficult situations.
    Thousands of Syrian refugee children are receiving humanitarian assistance and furniture from UNICEF, helping them to fully live their childhood.

    Today 130,000 people have opened their hearts to #MAKEAPROMISE with Louis Vuitton and UNICEF to help vulnerable children.
    We thank you all for your generosity and commitment.

    More is needed. More than 8 million children are affected by the Syrian regional crisis. The Syrian refugee crisis remains the largest humanitarian crisis since the end of World War II.

    Join us now. Make a promise.
    Together, we can make a difference.

    Louis Vuitton is showcasing its fresh, colorful Epi collection including NeoNoe handbags at an exclusive space in Daimaru Sapporo department store from Friday, March 30, for a limited time only.

    In 1932, a champagne maker approached Gaston-Louis Vuitton — grandson of the House's founder — with an order for a sturdy but stylish bag capable of carrying five champagne bottles. In response, Gaston-Louis created the iconic Noé design.

    Now the Maison has come up with the NeoNoe, a reinterpretation of the design for modern sensibilities, featuring Epi leather and a colorful lining.

    The NeoNoe design features a long adjustable strap and a removable top handle, and works beautifully in many scenarios. It can be carried in at least five different ways, including held in the hand, hung on the arm, or slung over the shoulder or across the body. The bags are available in a variety of striking colors, as well as modern, timeless black.
    Don’t miss a chance to visit this special display, located in the event space on the first floor of Daimaru Sapporo.

    4-7, Kita-5-jonishi, Chuo-ku, Sapporo-shi
    From March 30th to April 24th
