• 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.

  • REOPENING ON 24TH OCTOBER: THE NEW BOND STREET MAISON

    The doors to 17-20 New Bond Street, home to Louis Vuitton since 2010, will reopen on 24th October.

    After 14 months of renovations, 17-20 New Bond Street will reopen on 24th October, unveiling a metamorphosis that has transformed the store, where two different buildings are combined into one new location.

    The complete reimagining of the space on New Bond street, starting from its reconstructed exterior to its new generation of interiors, was rendered by New York based architect Peter Marino. Complete with illustrious artwork and giant architectural spaces, the store features seating and furniture custom made by Marino, who also curated important vintage pieces from designers including Enzo Mari and Pierre Paulin.

    Address: 17-20 New Bond Street, London W1S 2RB

  • LOUIS VUITTON I (RED) CANDLE

    Louis Vuitton unveils an exclusive new perfumed candle in support of (RED)'s fight to end AIDS

    The mission of (RED), the organization created by Bono and Bobby Shriver in 2006, is to transform the collective power of consumers into a force for good. Louis Vuitton proudly supports (RED)’s actions with the creation of a new LOUIS VUITTON I (RED) perfumed candle. For each candle sold, $60 will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS with (RED).

    In the spirit of Louis Vuitton’s longstanding history of creative collaboration, the LOUIS VUITTON I (RED) candle has been composed by the Maison's Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, and its design created by Marc Newson. Taking the colour red as his inspiration, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud selected the finest-quality natural ingredients to develop the candle’s fragrance, creating an olfactory experience that evokes the universal emotions of love, freedom, warmth, and purity. By blending a peony’s sweet, peppery and floral olfactory notes with the fruity vibrancy of raspberries, the burning candle becomes alive with harmony, optimism, and emotive pleasure. Rich in character, yet subtle, instantly transforming the home into a haven of comfort.

    The LOUIS VUITTON I (RED) candle is available in Louis Vuitton stores, starting in October 16th, 2019. To learn more, go to RED.org and follow @RED on Instagram. Join us #endAIDS
