  • LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK “MEXICO”

    In his Travel Book, the French writer, illustrator and painter Nicolas de Crécy depicts Mexico as a baroque country full of poetry.

    A writer, illustrator and painter who has been working for over twenty-five years, Nicolas de Crécy has created a multiform body of work, as poetic as it is unusual. His books, informed by philosophy, literature and Surrealism, come in varied graphic and stylistic forms that revisit genres (graphic novels, mangas, travel books, drawings, etc.) and techniques (ink, watercolour, pencil, gouache, pen, chalk, etc.).

    Some panels of his Mexico Travel Book, packed with detail, call for colour, while others are simpler and drawn quickly and incisively with a ballpoint pen or black ink. Alternating them brings out the best in each. Nicolas de Crécy’s book is a reflection of the country: baroque, feverish and powerful.

    A limited edition of the Travel Book, numbered and signed by the artist, is available in selected Louis Vuitton stores.

  • LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK “TOKYO” BY EBOY

    The eBoy collective, pioneer of pixel art, walks around Tokyo for a new title in the Louis Vuitton Travel Book collection with a pleasing freshness.

    The eBoy creations — “drawings” doesn’t seem quite the right word — seem familiar somehow. No doubt because of the many influences they incorporate from advertising, arcade games, supermarket shelves, Lego, magazine design, etc. These pixelated works are simple yet complex, inevitably abstract and yet so close to reality that we are sometimes amazed to recognise the faces of those who populate them, as in this Travel Book devoted to Tokyo. Their playful universe is nonetheless demanding. Impressionistic and pointillistic, it is also systematic, almost mathematical. In short, it’s unique.

    Each Travel Book title contains the artist's biography, travelogue, blurbs and captions. In its pages, the illustrations of renowned artists and promising young talents tell the stories of the cities and countries they have visited, depicting each place’s varied architecture and special light, and recording the passing days and the lives of its people.

    For each new title, a numbered and signed limited edition is available in select Louis Vuitton stores.

    Louis Vuitton continues its journey at Heathrow Airport. On July 17th 2017, Louis Vuitton will open its second airport store at Heathrow, in Terminal 3.

    The store’s concept is inspired by 1950’s Italian design. A beautiful see-through façade akin to a moucharabieh with latticework utilises the brand’s signature LV monogram of flowers and diamonds. Leather belts are used to fuse each module of the store and support each display shelf, blending the modern explorer’s journey with the one of the brand.

    The new 110sqm store features the Maison’s signature items including fragrances, leather goods and accessories for both men and women.

    Check the opening hours here.
