To anticipate the future of luxury, Louis Vuitton signs large-scale partnerships with schools and universities that are pioneers in their fields.
Partnership with Central Saint Martins: In 2021, LVMH and Central Saint Martins, one of the most prominent fashion schools in the world, launched the third phase of an official partnership initiated in 2011 with the creation of Maison/0 for Regenerative Luxury. This incubator's goal is to address the many social and environmental challenges facing the luxury industry by prioritising creative education and encouraging regenerative practices across all disciplines. Since 2017, Louis Vuitton has also offered Central Saint Martins students the opportunity to work on pioneering projects with either a strong environmental focus, such as in 2018 and 2021, or a social dimension in 2020, in order to identify cutting-edge solutions to drive sustainability and innovation in the luxury sector.
Louis Vuitton-ENS Chair: the Louis Vuitton - École Normale Supérieure scientific Chair in Artificial Intelligence was inaugurated in 2018 in order to share respective resources in this field and specifically in data processing using statistical learning and computer vision methods. Our aim is to continue to offer clients exceptional services and maintain our position as a leader and pioneer in the luxury industry.
Louis Vuitton-Comité Colbert Chair partnership: since 2017, our partnership with the Comité Colbert Chair has enabled us to welcome and support ENSAAMA students (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art) in their second year of Masters, in creative challenges to invent the luxury of tomorrow. These projects are an opportunity for our Maison to detect new talents and to help mould future creations.
