A titanic sea battle is underway ahead of the 35th edition of the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup, while a sportswear line signed with a red V has been launched in celebration of the legendary contest.
Reopening of the Asnières atelier and the Galerie in May 2016.
The Asnières atelier is the true hub of the House. Barely five years after founding his House, Louis Vuitton began to outgrow his Parisian headquarters. In 1859, he relocated the new workshops to Asnières, a village a few kilometres northwest of Paris.
These new ateliers were built in the ethereal Eiffel style, combining glass and steel. The exceptional savoir-faire of the Asnières artisans is such that, even today, key pieces are created here: rigid trunks, designs in rare or exotic leathers, special orders.
Visit Asnières to discover the intimate aspects of Louis Vuitton’s history, its ties with the ateliers, and admire in details the presence of the Louis Vuitton universe in every creations.

Louis Vuitton will travel to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to mark its third Cruise collection presentation.
The Cruise collection will be held on Saturday 28th May in an exclusive setting: the Niterói Contemporary Art Museum (MAC). A landmark building in Brazil, designed by celebrated Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.
The iconic building, shaped like a flying saucer that looks like it has landed on the side of a hill overlooking Guanabara Bay, facing Rio, was built in 1991 and inaugurated in 1996. The white modernist structure is reflected in a pool surrounding its cylindrical base, “like a flower”, as the famed architect described it. The Louis Vuitton Cruise presentation marks the first time the museum has ever hosted a fashion show and also serves as an occasion to celebrate the museum’s 20th anniversary and its reopening to the public following a major renovation project.
"Following the Bob and Dolores Hope estate designed by John Lautner in Palm Springs, California, we continue the architectural journey that is so particular to the Maison Louis Vuitton" explains Nicolas Ghesquière, Artistic Director of Women’s Collections at Louis Vuitton.
The Louis Vuitton Cruise show will be broadcast live on May 28th on www.louisvuitton.com. #LVCRUISE
