    • CHRISTOPHER NEMETH WINDOWS AT COLETTE - Louis Vuitton Fashion NEWS
    The new windows at the Paris concept store Colette pay tribute to the Louis Vuitton pop-up store located on the upper floor.

    Displays designed especially for the setting of Colette are featured in all the windows of the renowned concept store. Onlookers are invited to enter a new kind of trunk; a real jewel box presenting a selection of ready-to-wear, leather goods, accessories and watches. There will also be a limited edition of the Twister canvas tennis shoe.

    "I am really excited about the idea of collaborating with Colette on this beautiful project. Its position at the crossroads of fashion and culture makes Colette the ideal place to celebrate Nemeth's genius. Knowing that the young Louis Vuitton apprenticed in exactly the spot where the concept store stands today makes doing this project here an even more obvious choice!" explains Kim Jones, Men's Artistic Director at Louis Vuitton.

    For the upcoming Paris Menswear Collections, Louis Vuitton and Colette team up to open a pop-up store.

    From June 22nd until July 18th, the concept store Colette will premiere a selection of pieces from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2015 show collection. This is the first time in Europe that the Maison is showcasing its entire men's universe outside its own stores.

    The collection developed by Kim Jones, Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton men's collections, is a tribute to the creations of Christopher Nemeth, the late English fashion designer and artist. The collection plays with the famous cord print and the 'Harajuku' spirit silhouette that greatly influenced Nemeth's work in Japan.

    Special displays will be showcased in Colette's windows and a limited edition of the Twister canvas tennis shoe has been exclusively developed for the occasion.

  • "BEYOND THE WALLS" EXHIBITION IN BEIJING

    The exhibition “Fondation Louis Vuitton building in Paris by Frank Gehry” will be held in Beijing from 19th June to 16th August 2015, first step of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s project abroad.

    As stated during its inauguration, the Fondation Louis Vuitton intends to deploy its artistic activities not only in Paris but also abroad. The first step of this "beyond-the-walls" programme will take place in Beijing from 19th June to 16th August 2015, in a specially allocated venue within the 'China World' complex.

    From early sketches to the completion of work, the monographic exhibition focuses on Frank Gehry’s project for the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. It offers a new vision of the creative universe of the architect and Laureate of the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 1989, who has described the Foundation as a 'magnificent vessel that symbolizes France’s profound cultural vocation'.

    The show will then travel to Tokyo, where it will be held in the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton from 15th October 2015. Future events in the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s "beyond-the-walls" art programme will be announced subsequently.
