  • 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.

  • A CELEBRATION OF MONOGRAM

    A CELEBRATION OF MONOGRAM - Louis Vuitton Heritage NEWS
    The Icon And The Iconoclasts is a special project instigated by Louis Vuitton to celebrate the iconic Monogram.

    Six renowned and creative iconoclasts, Frank Gehry, Rei Kawakubo, Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Marc Newson and Cindy Sherman, have each been given carte blanche to create a personally inspired bag and/or a piece of luggage, using the iconic Monogram while keeping with the brand’s spirit of innovation, collaboration and daring.

    Spanning, blurring and redefining the disciplines of art, architecture and design, this diverse and extraordinary group has created a unique collection.

    The project itself was initiated by Delphine Arnault, Executive Vice President of Louis Vuitton and Nicolas Ghesquière, Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s Collections.

    “When we talked with Nicolas Ghesquière about the extraordinary talents we would like to approach we simply went to those who are among the best in their fields,” says Delphine Arnault. “We were interested in people who work with their minds and their hands. I thought it was so interesting – and fun! – to have all of these different points of view on the Monogram. It is inspiring to see how they envision things, to see their perspectives. This is a group of geniuses.”

    “Monogram is timeless, yet with this project we wanted to celebrate it in a way that defied the conventions of ‘classic’ says Michael Burke, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Louis Vuitton.

    These very exclusive and limited editions will be available in selected Louis Vuitton stores worldwide from mid-October 2014. "The Icon and The Iconoclasts: The Celebration of Monogram" launch event will take place in New York City on November 7th, 2014.

    A Women’s Prefall and Icons collections for Louis Vuitton inspired by Charlotte Perriand’s modern, timeless and comfortable allure to be twisted with the 80’s top models’ hypnotic silhouette.

    Upon returning from Japan in the 1940s, the architect, designer and photographer, Charlotte Perriand, wrote: “A new way of living awaited me there: work, leisure, discovery, representation. I had made up my wardrobe with interchangeable “modules,” as in my investigations of standardization: four skirts, long or short, for the lower body and sweaters, blouses and bustiers for the top, all of which combined to give me at least 16 possibilities. By adding scarves, stoles, atypical jewels and gloves, I achieved wide variety with a great deal of surprise and fantasy.”

    In this regard, the clothes from the 2014/2015 Icons collection are designed to face the challenges of a busy woman’s life. The wardrobe offers modern comfort and nomad elegance, together with exceptional craftsmanship and a basic colour palette including burgundy, park green, navy, black and beige.

    To add effortless glamour to your silhouette, the 2014 Prefall collection associates the essence of the 1980s throughout new suiting, fluid dresses, outerwear, with contrasted elements such as leather, fur, sequins graffiti prints and embroideries.

    Louis Vuitton showed its Cruise collection for the first time and had the honour of presenting it in the prestigious Principality of Monaco.

    The strong and lasting ties between the House and the Principality are strengthened by a common vision, as HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco states, "Elegance, beauty and refinement are values shared by the Principality and this prestigious Maison."

    By presenting his first Cruise collection as Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton’s women’s collections in the French Riviera, Nicolas Ghesquière is also connecting with the past: the origins of the Louis Vuitton legend, on the Côte d’Azur, where the arts of travel, luxury and escape first joined hands.

    Blogger Pelayo Diaz documented the event with this series of photo from the front row.
