• CYCLONE IDAI - HELP THE CHILDREN NOW

    Louis Vuitton supports UNICEF who is on the ground working to meet the immediate needs of affected children and their families in the wake of the Cyclone Idai and the Cyclone Kenneth.

    In March and April, Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe were hit by two cyclones in succession, devastating everything in their path.
    3 million people, more than half of whom are children, today need humanitarian assistance.

    Since 2016, thanks to your support, Louis Vuitton has raised more than 7 million euros for UNICEF to help children in emergencies.
    Some of this amount, more than € 300,000, will help vulnerable children and their families in East African countries affected by these natural disasters.

    Like them, 1.6 million children today need urgent and vital help.
    You can help them and #MAKEAPROMISE by making a direct donation to UNICEF: https://help.unicef.org/help-children-affected-cyclone-idai-lv

  • REMEMBERING KARL LAGERFELD

    Louis Vuitton honors Karl Lagerfeld, a long-standing friend of the House.

    Louis Vuitton pays tribute to Karl Lagerfeld, who was much more than a singular and prolific fashion icon, but also a long-standing friend of the House.

    Lagerfeld’s iconoclastic approach to redefining fashion - particularly predicting and understanding the importance of ready-to-wear and knowing how to revitalize and reinvent brands - could be seen as the blueprint by which many fashion houses operate today.  As both a preeminent designer, fashion trouble-shooter and contemporary Renaissance man, Lagerfeld’s contributions to the fashion and luxury world are innumerable.

    Lagerfeld’s close relationship with Louis Vuitton brought about several collaborations, including a custom one-of-a-kind trunk to hold his collection of 20 iPods and sound equipment.

    For Louis Vuitton’s 2014 project “THE ICON AND THE ICONOCLAST: Celebrating Monogram”, Lagerfeld was one of six creatives chosen to show the distinctly personal side of the Monogram; re-presenting something we think we all know in an extraordinary, individual, and idiosyncratic way. Given carte blanche to dictate and make whatever he saw fit in the iconic canvas, Lagerfeld designed a collection of boxing gear: a large trunk for variously sized punching bags, boxing gloves, carrying case, and even an instructive mat. Of his contribution, he said “It is fun! In fact, I had several ideas and Louis Vuitton wanted to do them all – why not? … It was really very childish, simple thinking!”

    On news of Lagerfeld’s passing, Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke shared: “Karl adopted me when I was in need of a friend in Rome! We became partners in crime and wrote history on the Great Wall of China. Aim high, shoot for the stars. You will always be our guiding light.”
