Creativity, extraordinary stones and craftsmanship.
Louis Vuitton’s new High Jewellery collection pays homage to a conquering, self-assured, seductive woman. Her conquests come to life in the Maison’s two emblematic signature motifs, the Monogram flower and the V, brought together for the first time in one collection. The two symbols fuse to create brand new designs, with exceptional gemstones at the heart, pulsing with graphic resonances and a rhythmic beat.
Conquêtes is a collection boasting three dazzling necklaces and some sixty pieces of jewellery. Like weapons of seduction, every piece in the Conquêtes collection celebrates the Louis Vuitton woman, her allure and charisma.
More than ever before, this collection showcases the breadth of expertise exhibited in Louis Vuitton’s workshops.

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.

Discover the video from the Louis Vuitton « Series 7 », Fall-Winter 2017 collection advertising campaign.
The visual narrative takes you behind the scenes of the SERIES 7 advertising campaign. Composed like an “urban saga” and inspired by the photographer Bruce Weber, the shoot for this campaign took place in a U.S. car garage. From this timeless atmosphere emanates a graphic purity, a sort of tension that acts as a counterpart to the models’ elegance.
Among the protagonists are Riley Keough, Sophie Turner or Jaden Smith, being part of this new generation inspired by the collection.
