• MIND OF A VISIONARY

    Share the views of five cutting-edge visionaries in fields as broad as literature, economics and politics interviewed at the 2014 World Economic Forum.

    The World Economic Forum ‘s Annual meeting last January in Davos, Switzerland, gave Louis Vuitton the perfect setting to interview five business leaders of the international scene: Tom Reiss, Félix Marquardt, Atiq Rahimi, Gino Yu and Lourenço Bustani.

    In these films, these entrepreneur travellers, chosen for their shared views and values in terms of excellence and innovation, discuss the notions of elegance, travelling and moving frontiers.

    For Tom Reiss, elegance is “about remaining true to yourself first of all, (…) about keeping a connection to the past, keeping a connection to some kind of tradition. That’s very personal; it can be a very personal tradition (…) about finding meaning in what you wear just like there is meaning in what you do.”

  • The two make a stylish pair

    Lay eyes on the Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2014 sunglasses collection for her and for him.

    Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2014 sunglasses collection is a combination of striking retro shapes and subtle signatures with lots of dark tortoise and bright colours.

    Women will find glamour and femininity in cat’s-eye shapes, an oversize design combining an acetate frame in fuchsia, violet, petrol blue or brown with a distinctive curved corner detail and arms in metal. The Louis Vuitton emblematic 3 layers acetate frame also offers an edgy style that suits oval as much as round faces. This season, models with innovative rotating hinges can be folded completely flat perfect for small clutches.

    The men’s collection combines style and comfort with designs that feature flex hinges and ultra-lightweight acetate frames. A modern twist to vintage shapes is given thanks to a graphic play on the historic Damier signature. Beige, navy or eye-popping cyan blue, are the main colours proposed by this dapper men’s collection.

  • MICHELLE WILLIAMS NEW AD CAMPAIGN FEAT. THE CAPUCINES

    This spring, Michelle Williams is back with new colours available for the ever stylish and timeless Capucines handbag.

    Photographed once again by Peter Lindbergh, and styled by Carine Roitfeld, these shots manifest the actress’ true sensibility and delicate fragility with shades of reminiscences in her expression.

    An air of vintage Parisian elegance that suits her perfectly, as she has just finished acting in Suite Française, based on the award-winning novel by Irène Némirovsky and centred on a romance during the early years of the German occupation of France.

    Made of the full-grain with light touch Taurillon leather, the Capucines comes in new shades - Cobalt, Bleu Electrique, Rose Azalée and Vert Jade – and in a mini version with a removable long strap for a more casual effect. Contrasted calf leather lining or a python leather handle also bring a fashionable touch to the refined tote.
    Discover the new Capucines selection Here.
