• “ABOUT TIME” EXHIBITION AT THE COSTUME INSTITUTE

    About Time Exhibition at the Costume Institute - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    Announcing the upcoming Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition “About Time: Fashion and Duration,” made possible by Louis Vuitton.

    The exhibit will trace more than a century and a half of fashion, from 1870 to the present, along a disruptive timeline, as part of the Museum’s 150th-anniversary celebration. Employing philosopher Henri Bergson’s concept of la durée—time that flows, accumulates and is indivisible—the exhibition will explore how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate the past, present and future. The exhibition is made possible by Louis Vuitton, with additional support provided by Condé Nast.

    In celebration of the opening, The Costume Institute Benefit, also known as The Met Gala, will take place on Monday, 4th May 2020.  Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director Nicolas Ghesquière will co-chair the event along with Emma Stone, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep and Anna Wintour.

    On the occasion of Paris Photo, Louis Vuitton invites you to discover its publications and pop-up bookstore from 7th to 10th November 2019.

  • NEW FASHION EYE RELEASES: JAPAN AND ORIENT EXPRESS

    NEW FASHION EYE RELEASES: JAPAN AND ORIENT EXPRESS - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    Louis Vuitton releases two new editions to the growing Fashion Eye book series: Japan by Adolphe de Meyer and Orient Express by Sarah Moon.

    Now totalling nineteen volumes, each album in the series reveals a country, a region, a city or a destination through the gaze of a fashion photographer. 

    In a selection of images from the early 1900s, Baron Adolphe de Meyer, the first great fashion photographer, born in Paris and truly ahead of his time, illuminates the spirit of a Japan opening to the West, thus offering a rare glimpse into its culture and society during this period. French artist Sarah Moon, acclaimed for her style and creativity, returns aboard the fabled Orient Express. With a knowing nod to the passage of time, she reinvents the beauty of a train that captures many of our imaginations, without ever neglecting the full breadth of its story.

  • NEW EDITIONS OF LOUIS VUITTON CITY GUIDES

    New Editions of Louis Vuitton City Guides - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    Louis Vuitton has updated ten editions of its City Guides: Paris, London, New-York, Beijing, Lisbon, Moscow, San Francisco, Seoul, Singapore and Tokyo.  

    Since 1998, Louis Vuitton has instilled its nomadic nature into its collection of City Guides by proposing a selection that is as specialised as it is individual. With a growing catalogue of 30 cities in print and digital formats, the collection has established itself as indispensable companions for the discerning traveller. Each guide speaks as readily to flâneurs as to business travellers, or even local residents: there are both palaces and charming boutique hotels, gourmet restaurants and neighbourhood bistros, street markets and upscale food shops, antique shops and designer hubs, museums and boutiques, unmissable monuments and secret spots…

    This year, the Paris edition has been enriched with new addresses, following the updates of the Beijing, Lisbon, London, Moscow, New York, San Francisco, Seoul, Singapore and Tokyo guides. Architect and interior decorator François-Joseph Graf invites us to rediscover Paris, actress and singer Sophie Auster accompanies us throughout New York, and architects Alexei Ginzburg and Kengo Kuma share their visions of Moscow and Tokyo, respectively.

    The Louis Vuitton City Guide mobile application, available on iPhone or iPad, offers the entire catalogue of cities and covers thousands of regularly-updated addresses. Additional content can also be found on Apple TV, which proposes an ensemble of subsidiary video programming, and Louis Vuitton's connected Tambour Horizon watch, offering the “Around Me” and “24 Hours” features.
