• IN SITU – 1: BLANK WALL FOR ANDREA BOWERS

    From June 4th, the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton has launched IN SITU–1, the first edition of an open-studio program where international artists are invited to produce an artwork under your eyes.

    For this first edition, Parisian visitors will witness all stages of the creative process — from inspiration to fruition — and experience unique encounters with American artist, Andrea Bowers (featured above), until September 2014. Her final artwork will remain exhibited in Paris from September 26th, 2014 till January 4th, 2015. Meanwhile, the program will continue in Tokyo with South-Korean artist Min-Jeong Seo and in Munich with Malaysian artist Simryn Gill.
    These three artists are to work with a variety of media and literally start with a “blank page“ at each location, entirely free to choose the way they inhabit and transform each Espace.

    As Michael Burke, Chairman and CEO at Louis Vuitton, says: “A defined passion for creation has always been at the core of Louis Vuitton, which translates into the idea of witnessing how new work materializes and share the experience of the creative process”.

    Rajasthan, the land of kings in the north-western corner of India, inspired Louis Vuitton in an exploration of the origins of menswear, offering a timeless look of true sophistication.

    “While last season’s collection was about looking down at the earth from above, this time we’re looking up at the stars,” says Kim Jones, Men’s Artistic Director.

    From Jaipur to Ranthambore, a vision of contemporary and eternal India has been remixed by Louis Vuitton into a glamorous blend of sophisticated embellished fabrics, smart military tailoring and inventive sport style.

  • LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK: VENICE

    Louis Vuitton publishes two new titles in its “Travel Book” collection. In this edition famous Japanese Manga Artist Jirô Taniguchi imagines a story at the very heart of Venice.

    Jirô Taniguchi was born in 1947 in the small southern Japanese town of Tottori, famous for its sand dunes. An avid reader of manga, as a teenager he discovered gekiga, whose realistic style strongly influenced his artistic development. In this travel book dedicated to Venice, Taniguchi conveys acute sensitivity and deep poetry. The subtle harmony of the narration suffuses this refinement with a degree of nostalgia.

    The Louis Vuitton “Travel Book” collection is an invitation to real and virtual voyages, offering a contemporary vision of travel. 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.

  • MICHELLE WILLIAMS GRASPS FOR EMPRISE

    • MICHELLE WILLIAMS GRASPS FOR EMPRISE - Louis Vuitton Fashion NEWS
    The Emprise collection of watches and fine jewellery perfectly integrates within the Parisian style atmosphere found in this year’s Michelle Williams ad campaign.

    The rigorous styling of this collection falls within an aristocratic lineage, imbued with a purely Parisian heritage. The severe outlines of the volumes and the precious stone assemblies with their myriad reflections reproduce the magnificent perspectives created in Paris by Baron Haussmann during the 19th century, and the long procession of salons and interplay of mirrors found in the rich townhouses around the Parc Monceau. Gold tassels that tremble at the slightest movement recall the Haute Couture and gaiety of Second Empire festivities.

    On this visual, a graphic and delicate yellow gold watch from the new Emprise collection is worn by Michelle Williams to discover HERE along with the entire collection.
