  • ANNOUNCING LOUIS VUITTON MAISON SEOUL

    Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce the upcoming opening of Louis Vuitton Maison Seoul, marking a spectacular new collaboration with celebrated architects Frank Gehry and Peter Marino.

    Perched atop the prestigious Cheongdam-dong area of the Gangnam district, the building marks Frank Gehry’s first creation in South Korea and displays a clear connection with the shape of the architect’s Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. The opening of the Maison Seoul marks a further link in the strong connection between Louis Vuitton and Korean culture. The very first store in Seoul opened in 1991, followed by a global store following in Cheongdam-dong in 2000. Exhibitions and work by Korean artists have been featured at the Espace Louis Vuitton in Paris, with the House also holding major events in Seoul. In 2017 the landmark ‘Volez Voguez Voyagez’ exhibition dedicated to Louis Vuitton’s heritage and history travelled to the Dongdaemun Design Plaza.

    Stay tuned for more information about the opening on October 31st, 2019.

    Louis Vuitton embarks on a new voyage to Phuket, a haven of tropical modernism, where the first Thai store outside Bangkok opens in the new mall 'Central Phuket'.

    Conceived in the international spirit of Louis Vuitton yet incorporating local elements, the interiors of the Phuket store are unique to Thailand. Tracing its journey from the West to the East, a Sino-Portuguese style has infused the space through wall sculptures and installations inspired by the design elements of local handicrafts. 

    The interior expresses the Maison's codes with subtle off-white cut-out panels in a pattern that recalls the iconic Monogram's motif, floating like lace in a light-filled expanse.  At a special space within the store, an abundance of tropical plants invite clients to discover Louis Vuitton's resort offer in a setting centered around the legacy of Phuket’s beautiful beaches and island life.

  • CHARLOTTE PERRIAND: INVENTING A NEW WORLD

    CHARLOTTE PERRIAND INVENTING A NEW WORLD - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    Upcoming exhibition at Fondation Louis Vuitton - From 2 October 2019 to 24 February 2020

    On 2 October 2019 the Fondation Louis Vuitton opens a large-scale exhibition dedicated to Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999), a free woman, pioneer of modernity, a leading figure of the XX century design, who contributed to the definition of a new art de vivre

    To mark the twentieth anniversary of the passing of Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999), the Fondation pays tribute to her as an architect and visionary creator through an exhibition of her work exploring the links between art, architecture and design. 

    The exhibition retraces the architectural work of Charlotte Perriand, whose creations presage current conversations about the roles of women and nature in our society. Visitors will have a unique opportunity to engage directly with a world of modernity thanks to meticulously researched, faithful reconstitutions that include works of art chosen by Charlotte Perriand, thus embodying her vision of a “synthesis of the arts”. Through this exhibition, the work of Charlotte Perriand invites us to rethink the role of art in our society. More than simply an object of pleasure, art is the spearhead of profound transformations in the society of tomorrow.
