LES PARFUMS LOUIS VUITTON - Louis Vuitton Heritage NEWS
    Resource your bottle for long-lasting luxury

    Since its founding, Louis Vuitton has sought to create objects that last, articles that are passed down from generation to generation. Naturally, its perfume bottles, which are refillable, carry on this sustainable tradition.

    To have a bottle refilled, one needs to simply bring it to the nearest of the House’s boutiques. Each store maintains various perfume fountains, avant-garde tools developed specially for these bottles and exclusive to Louis Vuitton. In the space of a few seconds, the empty bottle is once again full, without ever having been opened, as if it were a sort of futuristic capsule. Not a drop of fragrance is lost. The perfume never comes in contact with the surrounding air, and so remains perfectly intact, identical to the original. The House’s bottles are thus an effective and innovative way of helping to preserve the environment. 

    They are also a way to pay homage to the Fontaines Parfumées, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud’s workshop in Grasse, in Provence, where perfume bottles were already being refilled at the source starting last century.

    The Objets Nomades Collection, enriched with 10 new items, will be presented during Fuori Salone in Milan, from April 4th to 9th at Palazzo Bocconi.

    Created in 2012, the Objets Nomades collection keeps alive Louis Vuitton’s long tradition of beautifully crafted travel objects. Some of the world’s most renowned designers have since imagined stunning travel-inspired Objets, which have then been made by Louis Vuitton.

    The limited editions and experimental prototypes that make up the Objets Nomades collection all pay homage to the House’s special orders of the past and add the defiantly contemporary visions of creative designers from around the world: Atelier Oï, Maarten Baas, Barber and Osgerby, the Campana Brothers, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, Patricia Urquiola, Marcel Wanders, and, most recently, India Mahdavi and Tokujin Yoshioka.

    Today, there are 25 Objets Nomades and 10 among them will be presented for the first time during Fuori Salone in Milano. From a hammock to a deckchair, from a swing chair to a foldable stool. Each Objet embodies the same ideals: a love of the beauty of fine materials, the possibility of forms and carefully balanced proportions, complex and meticulous craftsmanship, and close attention to detail.

    From April 4th to April 9th: Exhibition open to the public
    Opening hours: 10 am - 8 pm

    Objets Nomades Savoir-Faire Design Exhibition

    Every weekend from September 21st to October 27th, la Galerie will reopen its doors to the public presenting an exhibition: Time Capsule.

    The Asnières atelier is a pivotal location. Barely five years after founding Louis Vuitton, Louis himself began to outgrow his Parisian headquarters. In 1859, he relocated the new workshop to Asnières, a village a few kilometers northwest of Paris. 

    This new atelier was built in the ethereal Eiffel style, combining glass and steel. The exceptional savoir-faire of the Asnières artisans is such that, even today, key pieces are created here: rigid trunks, designs in rare or exotic leathers, special orders. 

    From within its “Galérie” in Asnières, Louis Vuitton presents Time Capsule, a journey through the history of the House that revisits its landmark innovations in technology and design. Travelling from the House’s beginnings in 1854 to the present day, the story is told using rare and celebrated objects selected from the Louis Vuitton archive.

    The exhibition follows a visual timeline of landmark moments in the Louis Vuitton story, demonstrating the ways in which Louis Vuitton has anticipated the needs and desires of a changing world over 160 years generated by technological progress, with imaginative and ingenious new creations.

    In Time Capsule, heirloom designs live alongside some of the House’s most contemporary pieces, highlighting the ongoing commitment to constant innovation.

    Visit Asnières to discover the intimate aspects of Louis Vuitton’s history, its ties with the ateliers, and admire in detail the presence of the Louis Vuitton universe in every creation.

    The Fondation Louis Vuitton presents the exhibition "Icons of Modern Art. The Shchukin Collection" until 5 March 2017.

    The exhibition pays tribute to one of the early 20th century’s greatest art patrons, Sergei Shchukin, a visionary collector of French modern art. The 130 works on loan from the Pushkin Museum in Moscow and the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg demonstrate the collector’s daring artistic choices and the swiftness with which he brought together one of the most significant collections of modern art, including works by Monet, Matisse, Picasso, Gauguin, Cézanne, Le Douanier Rousseau, and Derain, amongst many other artists. The exhibition also highlights the vivid dialogue between French modern art and the rising Russian avant-garde art, featuring works by artists such as Malevitch, Rodtchenko, Tatlin and Gontcharova who were familiar with the Shchukin collection.
    Between 27 February and 5 March, the Fondation will open from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (and until 1 a.m. on Saturday, 4 March). Enjoy these exceptional extended hours to admire from dawn to night time the masterpieces collected by Sergei Shchukin, which are now gathered for the first time outside of Russia.
    Immerse yourself  in the collection’s history and let yourself be swept into the colourful hues of Matisse or Gauguin.

    Louis Vuitton presents the exhibition “Louis Vuitton and Issoudun, 100 years of Leather Goods” from February 11th until April 9th, 2017.

    Louis Vuitton celebrates the 100th anniversary of La Maroquinerie de l’Indre, a leather goods workshop acquired by Louis Vuitton in the 1980s, with an exhibition retracing a century of craftsmanship in the heart of Issoudun in central France.

    The complementary stories of the two entities are narrated through 70 emblematic pieces. A Gray Trianon Trunk from the 19th century opens the exhibition which guides visitors through the evolution of the handbag, from the early sac plat to Louis Vuitton’s iconic bags, still crafted today in Issoudun. The unique know-how of craftsmen, their taste for innovation as well as their passion transmitted from generation to generation is at the core of this exhibition.
