• 12th HAVANA BIENNAL IN THE CITY OF HAVANA

    Louis Vuitton presents an exploration of the colorful city of Havana in collaboration with artists.

    Highlighting the city's beautiful but forgotten areas, international artists unite as a form of recognition to Cuban Heritage and its cultural landscape.

    Various people come together to form symbols of this Third Paradise. Musicians merge at the Plaza de la Catedral as a performance piece while playing different percussion instruments. Circles symbolizing nature and artifice merge in this stand for rebirth.

    Buren's work is installed on the streets and in an abandoned train station. Anish Kapoor's video is projected inside an iconic cinema.
    "Third paradise" is the name of Pistoletto's artworks and performance.

  • 12th HAVANA BIENNAL – BETWEEN THE IDEA AND THE EXPERIENCE

    Louis Vuitton is pleased to support artists at the Havana Biennale in Cuba, opening this 22nd of May.

    At the forefront of change, Louis Vuitton seeks to propose new views around travel and cultures across the globe. The House has continually contributed to move the frontiers of Fashion and Art by generating audacious projects and collaborating with visionaries.

    Among the Friends of the House who have contributed to generate images of our future, Louis Vuitton supports the following artists: Anish Kapoor, Daniel Buren, Michelango Pistoletto, Shilpa Gupta, Nikhil Chopra, José Yaque and local artist Carlos Garaicoa; all are represented by the Galleria Continua during the Biennale in Cuba.

    Between the idea and experience is a vast and varied space of possibilities, and in the hands of creators these unmanifest territories surface and embrace a diversity of identities that have yet to be seen.

  • CITY SHADES

    Louis Vuitton unveils new signature sunglasses, photographed by Juergen Teller.

    The Louis Vuitton silhouette is just as much about accessories as fashion: the essence of personal style is all in the details. Taking on a versatile, urban edge, frames come in rounded retro shapes and neutrals - from gradations of beige and taupe to warm 'honey' tortoiseshell, a nod to the house colours.

    Design elements include tiny studs and streamlined hinges, recalling the house's trunk making heritage. In addition there are metallic monogram end tips and a tonal engraving of the house logo on the lens.

Shaped like a classic messenger bag, it radically swings into luxury with the refinement of the LV clasp closing system and its supple and soft Taurillon cowhide leather.

    American actress Michelle Williams embodies this elegance whether captured on glossy pages by photographer Peter Lindbergh, or on the red carpet.
