    This June, the New Bond Street Maison will play host to debuting a preview of Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2015 Men collection ahead of its official launch in August.

    The collection takes its cue from London designer and artist, Christopher Nemeth, who rebelliously fused Savile Row tailoring with street wear. Nemeth, who was born in Birmingham but resided in Tokyo from 1986 until his death in 2010 aged 51, was an unsung hero of British fashion who was relatively unknown in the UK, but not to Louis Vuitton men’s artistic director, Kim Jones, who says Nemeth’s work defined London during the 1980s. "He trained as a fine artist and came into fashion from being an illustrator, and that chimes with how I started," reveals Jones, continuing, "I wanted to openly celebrate his life and work." Jones sourced four original prints from Nemeth’s archive and collaborated with stylist and accessories designer, Judy Blame – a member of Nemeth’s creative force – on jewellery, while also consulting with Nemeth’s widow and daughters on other details of the collection. Jones’ vision manifests as cork embossed cashmere, laser etchings on shearling, even a flocked suitcase – which all marry the standout craftsmanship of Louis Vuitton’s ateliers with the wit and originality of Nemeth’s world. P.S. Nemeth’s middle name? Louis. Now that’s serendipity.

    Louis Vuitton Women Pre-Fall 2015 Collection.

    The first Pre-Fall collection by Nicolas Ghesquière for the Maison Louis Vuitton.

    Fifteen strong looks that nonetheless remain open to multiple interpretations and possibilities through the layering of complementary elements.

    It is about listening to the clothes and understanding the tempo of their materials: dotted swiss under leather, ruching with quilting, tweed and knit, velvet and lace, MONOGRAM canvas and slim twill.

    Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce its new partnership with the America’s Cup, the oldest trophy in international sport, dating back to 1851.

    Louis Vuitton and the America’s Cup enjoy one of the longest partnerships in the world of sports (since 1983). For this 35th edition, the French Maison is renewing its commitment to the America’s Cup by becoming the title partner of the America’s Cup World Series, the America’s Cup Qualifiers and Challenger Playoffs, as well as the presenting partner of the America’s Cup Match.

    Six teams have so far taken up the challenge of racing for the next America’s Cup. The defending champion is Oracle Team USA. The challengers are Emirates Team New Zealand, Artemis Racing (SWE), Ben Ainslie Racing (GBR), SoftBank Team Japan (JPN) and Team France.

    For Louis Vuitton, this partnership represents more than simply supporting a great sporting event, it also reflects the trailblazing spirit that has characterized Louis Vuitton from its beginnings and still holds true today.

    Louis Vuitton presents an exploration of the colourful city of Havana in collaboration with artists.

    Highlighting the city's beautiful but forgotten areas, international artists unite to pay tribute to Cuban Heritage and its cultural landscape.

    Various people come together to form symbols of this Third Paradise. Musicians gather at the Plaza de la Catedral as a performance group and play different percussion instruments. Circles representing nature and artifice merge together to symbolize rebirth.

    Buren's work is installed on the streets and in an abandoned train station. Anish Kapoor's video is projected inside an iconic cinema.

    "Third paradise" is the name of Pistoletto's artworks and performance.
