The collection is unveiled in the Louvre’s beautiful Passage Richelieu, which Mr. Louis Vuitton used to reach the apartments of Empress Eugenie, for whom he was the exclusive trunk-maker. Located between Paris’ iconic Rue de Rivoli and the Louvre Museum, the passage opens onto the Cour Napoléon and the Pyramid. Nicolas Ghesquière chose to amplify its nebulous atmosphere by holding the show at dusk.
For over 15 years, Louis Vuitton’s sustainability development policy has been in place, ensuring our targets on the conversation of natural resources, climate control, and the positive impact of the Maison on society. Today, 97% of Louis Vuitton shows and event sets are reused or recycled, and a second life is anticipated from their conception. For the Spring-Summer 2022 show, 20 tons of material, including chandeliers and chairs were rented, all scenography elements will be donated to ArtStock, and all wooden elements were crafted from FSC certified wood.
