  • TIME CAPSULE EXHIBITION IN HONG KONG

    Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce the opening of its 'Time Capsule' exhibition, from April 22nd until May 14th, a hand selected collection of exhibited pieces from the Louis Vuitton archive.

    Concurrently with the 20th anniversary of the HKSAR, and the 25th anniversary silver Jubilee of Le French May, Hong Kong has been chosen as the first stop for Time Capsule.  With free entry for the public to the exhibition, Time Capsule begins with French artisans demonstrating traditional leatherwork skills that remain as relevant today as they have in the past century.  The exhibition then follows a visual timeline of landmark moments in the Louis Vuitton story, focusing on five key aspects such as the Codes of the House, Journeys around the World, Elegance and Beauty in Motion, Icons of the House and a Celebration of the House’s Past and Present links with Hong Kong.

    Visitors will enjoy unprecedented access to some of the most valuable pieces from Louis Vuitton’s archives and specially curated artworks by local Hong Kong artists will also be showcased at the exhibition. Guided tours of the exhibition will also be provided to local community groups including schools and charities.

  • SUMMERY SPIRIT COLLECTION

    Iconic Damier Azur canvas with fresh pink signature, Louis Vuitton introduces its summery collection.

    To celebrate summer 2017, the Damier Azur canvas is revisited with an inspiration from the endless summers of paradisiac Tahiti, multicolor sunsets and stunning beaches.
    A new twisted yet recognizable Louis Vuitton signature, inspired by the archives of the House, gives a modern aspect in the reinterpretation of the Monogram. A light pink signature, highly feminine for a summery and radiant allure.

    These new prints are available on Louis Vuitton’s most iconic models such as the Keepall, the Speedy and the Neverfull. This new transversal print story, also seen on accessories and shoes, perfectly mixes with the summer feminine silhouette.

  • LOUIS VUITTON OBJETS NOMADES

    The Objets Nomades Collection, enriched with 10 new items, will be presented during Fuori Salone in Milan, from April 4th to 9th at Palazzo Bocconi.

    Created in 2012, the Objets Nomades collection keeps alive Louis Vuitton’s long tradition of beautifully crafted travel objects. Some of the world’s most renowned designers have since imagined stunning travel-inspired Objets, which have then been made by Louis Vuitton.

    The limited editions and experimental prototypes that make up the Objets Nomades collection all pay homage to the House’s special orders of the past and add the defiantly contemporary visions of creative designers from around the world: Atelier Oï, Maarten Baas, Barber and Osgerby, the Campana Brothers, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, Patricia Urquiola, Marcel Wanders, and, most recently, India Mahdavi and Tokujin Yoshioka.

    Today, there are 25 Objets Nomades and 10 among them will be presented for the first time during Fuori Salone in Milano. From a hammock to a deckchair, from a swing chair to a foldable stool. Each Objet embodies the same ideals: a love of the beauty of fine materials, the possibility of forms and carefully balanced proportions, complex and meticulous craftsmanship, and close attention to detail.

    Palazzo Bocconi, Corso Venezia 48, 20122 Milano
    From April 4th to April 9th: Exhibition open to the public
