  • “ABOUT TIME” EXHIBITION AT THE COSTUME INSTITUTE

    Announcing the upcoming Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition “About Time: Fashion and Duration,” made possible by Louis Vuitton.

    The exhibit will trace more than a century and a half of fashion, from 1870 to the present, along a disruptive timeline, as part of the Museum’s 150th-anniversary celebration. Employing philosopher Henri Bergson’s concept of la durée—time that flows, accumulates, and is indivisible—the exhibition will explore how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate the past, present, and future. The exhibition is made possible by Louis Vuitton, with additional support provided by Condé Nast.

    In celebration of the opening, The Costume Institute Benefit, also known as The Met Gala, will take place on Monday, May 4, 2020.  Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director Nicolas Ghesquière will co-chair the event along with Emma Stone, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep, and Anna Wintour.

  • NEW FASHION EYE RELEASES: JAPAN AND ORIENT EXPRESS

    Louis Vuitton releases two new editions to the growing Fashion Eye book series: Japan by Adolphe de Meyer and Orient Express by Sarah Moon.

    Now totaling nineteen volumes, each album in the series reveals a country, a region, a city, or a destination through the gaze of a fashion photographer. 

    In a selection of images from the early 1900s, Baron Adolphe de Meyer, the first great fashion photographer, born in Paris and truly ahead of his time, illuminates the spirit of a Japan opening to the West, thus offering a rare glimpse into its culture and society during this period. French artist Sarah Moon, acclaimed for her style and creativity, returns aboard the fabled Orient Express. With a knowing nod to the passage of time, she reinvents the beauty of a train that captures many of our imaginations, without ever neglecting the full breadth of its story.

  • GIACOMETTI AT ESPACE LOUIS VUITTON SEOUL

    From October 31, 2019 to January 19, 2020, the Fondation Louis Vuitton presents eight works from the Collection for the inauguration of this new venue.

    On the occasion of its opening, the Espace Louis Vuitton Seoul is proud to announce the presentation of an exhibition dedicated to major artist Alberto Giacometti. This presentation has been produced in the framework of the Fondation Louis Vuitton's "Hors-les-murs" programme, showcasing holdings of the Collection at the Espaces Louis Vuitton in Tokyo, Munich, Beijing and now Seoul, thus carrying out the Fondation's intent to mount international projects and make them accessible to a broader public.

    Giacometti's work combined daily experience of the model with timeless forms of ancient references. As the bodies he sculpted became thinner, and with a sense of lingering failure over his inability to reproduce his models as he perceived them, he achieved extreme simplification of the forms, reducing them to the essential lines of their precarious existence. His oeuvre, ranging from his early surreal objects to his late delicate silhouettes, constitutes a undeniable milestone in the Art History.

    For its very first exhibition, the Espace Louis Vuitton Seoul presents eight emblematic sculptures by Giacometti, that belong to the Collection : Tête sur tige [Head on a rod] (1947), Trois hommes qui marchent [Three men walking] (1948), Homme qui chavire [Man who capsizes] (1950), Femme de Venise III [Woman of Venice III] (1956), Grande Femme II [Tall Woman II] (1960) and Têtes d’homme [Heads of a man] (Lotar I), (Lotar II) and (Lotar III) (1964-65). These works, considered as key masterpieces of Giacometti’s oeuvre, pay tribute to the virtuosity of the iconic Swiss artist.
