On Sunday, February 24th, 2019 at the 91st Academy Awards in Los Angeles, several acclaimed attendees graced the red carpet wearing Louis Vuitton. Friend of the House and nominee Emma Stone wore a custom-made Louis Vuitton gown made entirely of embroidered beads, sequins, and crystals on silk. For Laura Harrier’s ceremony look, Louis Vuitton created an ethical and eco-responsible gown in partnership with Suzy Amis Cameron's Red Carpet Green Dress initiative. The Maison’s Paris atelier followed the initiative's strict ecological and social criteria and worked with verified supplies, used silk certified by the Global Organic Textile Standards, and featured sequins respecting the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®. Laura Harrier also attended the Vanity Fair Oscars Party in a dress and heels from the Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2019 Collection with a Monogram Toupie bag. Other guests in Louis Vuitton at the famed After Party included Sophie Turner and Chloë Grace Moretz, both in custom-made embroidered gowns.

Louis Vuitton honours Karl Lagerfeld, a long-standing friend of the House.
Louis Vuitton pays tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, who was much more than a singular and prolific fashion icon, but also a long-standing friend of the House.
Lagerfeld’s iconoclastic approach to redefining fashion - particularly predicting and understanding the importance of ready-to-wear and knowing how to revitalise and reinvent brands - could be seen as the blueprint by which many fashion houses operate today. As both a pre-eminent designer, fashion trouble-shooter and contemporary Renaissance man, Lagerfeld’s contributions to the fashion and luxury world are innumerable.
Lagerfeld’s close relationship with Louis Vuitton brought about several collaborations, including a custom one-of-a-kind trunk to hold his collection of 20 iPods and sound equipment.
For Louis Vuitton’s 2014 project “THE ICON AND THE ICONOCLAST: Celebrating Monogram”, Lagerfeld was one of six creatives chosen to show the distinctly personal side of the Monogram; re-presenting something we think we all know in an extraordinary, individual and idiosyncratic way. Given carte blanche to dictate and make whatever he saw fit in the iconic canvas, Lagerfeld designed a collection of boxing gear: a large trunk for variously sized punching bags, boxing gloves, carrying case, and even an instructive mat. Of his contribution, he said “It is fun! In fact, I had several ideas and Louis Vuitton wanted to do them all – why not? … It was really very childish, simple thinking!”
On news of Lagerfeld’s passing, Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke shared: “Karl adopted me when I was in need of a friend in Rome! We became partners in crime and wrote history on the Great Wall of China. Aim high, shoot for the stars. You will always be our guiding light.”Karl Lagerfeld Homage Tribute
From February 20th to June 17th 2019, the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris presents the collection of Samuel Courtauld, the English industrialist and patron of the arts.
“The Courtauld Collection: A Vision for Impressionism” brings together some 110 works, including 60 paintings and graphic pieces, which are mainly conserved in the Courtauld Gallery or in different international public and private collections. It will enable the French public to discover some of the greatest French paintings from the end of the 19th century and from the very beginning of the 20th century in Paris, sixty years after their first presentation in 1955 at the Musée de l’Orangerie. These works include Un Bar aux Folies Bergère (1882) by Manet, La Jeune Femme se poudrant by Seurat (1889-90), Les Joueurs de cartes by Cézanne (1892-96), Autoportrait à l’oreille bandée by Van Gogh (1889), Nevermore by Gauguin (1897), as well as a set of ten watercolours by J.M.W. Turner which belonged to Samuel Courtauld’s brother, Sir Stephen Courtauld.
The exhibition of the Courtauld Collection embodies the Fondation’s aim to showcase the role of emblematic collectors from the history of art, following on from previous exhibitions such as “Keys to a passion” (2014-2015), "Being Modern: MoMA in Paris" (2017-2018), "Icons of Modern Art. The Shchukin Collection" (2016-2017) which brought together great works of Modernism, collected by prestigious institutions and visionary collectors.Fondation Louis Vuitton Exhibition Impressionism
Inspired by a model from Louis Vuitton's archives, the new Dauphine bag has been redesigned for the modern era.
Nicolas Ghesquière is known for his keen ability to explore and reinvent designs from Louis Vuitton's vast archives. The Women's Artistic Director's latest inspiration comes from the 1970's Dauphine bag, a compact model in classic Monogram canvas. With its new metallic LV closure, hexagonal chain strap, and adjustable leather strap that can be worn two ways, the new Dauphine bag makes the most of its heritage while adapting to modern lifestyles. Monogram lovers will appreciate the play on two versions of the iconic motif: the classic and the reverse. The new Dauphine bag revives a historical shape and elevates it to must-have status among Louis Vuitton's new leather goods icons.Leather goods Monogram
