Almanach 1996, English Version


To look back on the year’s highlights and dive into the legendary passages of Louis Vuitton's history both recent and distant: such is the purpose of the Louis Vuitton Almanach. A cross between a coffee table book, a scrapbook and a calendar, this art object symbolises twelve months of the events, creativity and personalities that bring the House to life throughout the world. With Ready-to-Wear shows, jewellery, watchmaking, luggage, perfumes, books, Objets Nomades and cultural, festive and athletic events, each edition of the Almanach is a chapter of the Louis Vuitton story.  1996 was not just any year for Louis Vuitton. At a time when mobile phones were just beginning to appear and the Internet was in its infancy, the House celebrated the centenary of the Monogram with a series of historical collaborations and events all over the world. Damier canvas made a comeback, celebrities took to the stage, the Asnières museum was expanded and lifestyle became a watchword at the new Saint-Germain-des-Prés store. Step back in time and discover the best of 1996 according to Louis Vuitton.
