• Michelle Williams Advertising Campaign

    Louis Vuitton’s latest advertising campaign spotlights its new handbag in a series of images photographed by Peter Lindbergh.

    The new bag, a graphic design in shape of a W, with its bold lines and innovative combination of materials, represents a fresh vision of the iconic Monogram. The enchanting beauty of Michelle Williams, who wears the sensual lace slips and mannish coats of Marc Jacobs’ Fall/Winter 2013 collection for Louis Vuitton, is revealed by Peter Lindbergh’s sensitive and striking portraits.

    The actress was singled out by Louis Vuitton for the independent spirit with which she has forged her path through the Hollywood star system, defining herself by her outstanding talent, her passion for her craft, and her choice of daring and challenging roles. From Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain (2005), Michelle Williams went on to give critically acclaimed performances, as it was the case with her role as Marilyn Monroe in My Week with Marilyn, for which she earned a Golden Globe and her third Oscar nomination.

    A timeless story, revolving around a friend of the House, a woman who embodies the unexpected through her personality and the care she takes in her choice of roles.

  • Going with the Flow

    As part of Louis Vuitton mini-site louisvuitton-histoires.com, discover this short animated film following the Louis Vuitton’s luggage along the decade.

    At the dawn of the 20th century, luggage crafted by Louis Vuitton, most famously the Wardrobe trunk and the Steamer bag, accompanied passengers on the world’s first transatlantic liners. The legend lives on today.

    What a distance we have travelled since the advent of the transatlantic liner. From a time when Louis Vuitton trunks accompanied their owners on the long ocean crossing, to the high-speed journeys of today, with a Keepall on our shoulder or a trolley case in our hand.

    Since 1854, Louis Vuitton has explored new frontiers and pushed the limits of innovation. A pioneering spirit defines its history, and the technological advances in the transportation system fired the imagination of the House. This four-wheel trolley, the Zéphyr, is in line with this inventive spirit.

  • A LOUIS VUITTON CUP WEEKEND

    The America’s Cup Park was opened last weekend by San Francisco Officials in a ribbon cutting ceremony led by the Mayor of San Francisco.

    Thousands of fans filled the Pavilion at the America’s Cup Park on a beautiful sunny 4th of July in San Francisco.  Fans were excited to welcome the teams and see a presentation from each country included an opera singer from Italy, a Swedish choir, the New Zealand Kapa Haka group, and a unique American performance by a Las Vegas group called ‘Recycled Percussion’.

    Celebrations continued the following days with a Competitors Parade and Louis Vuitton Cup party held at the Palace of Legion of Honor.

    At the Louis Vuitton Cup party, 24 musicians of "Magik Magik Orchestra" welcomed the guests, playing classical music live right in front of the Palace. Meanwhile, 3 beautiful acrobats flying the colors of each challenger's flag entertained the crowd, moving graciously in huge transparent bubbles.

    A fashion show by World Of Wearable Art (WOW) was the highlight of the evening, where each challenging country was represented by a piece of wearable art. The costumes in the show were especially created for the 30th anniversary of the Louis Vuitton Cup.

  • Never Full of Colours

    A unique grain and a subtle colour palette, the Iconic Neverfull bag is finally released in Epi leather.

    Epi has always been synonymous with colour at Louis Vuitton. It was the first coloured leather line to be launched by the House in 1985 (you might have recently caught a glimpse of some of the collection  on iconic bridges across the world).

    Today one of Louis Vuitton's Signatures will meet one of the most iconic shapes of the House thanks to the introduction of the Neverfull in Epi line. For the first time the House is launching a Neverfull in leather, a colourful addition to this iconic shape.

    This new version of the Neverfull will suit everyday occasions; a possibility to play with colours easily for a feminine, casual chic silhouette.

    Never has a full range of Epi colours been so highly anticipated.

  • The Louis Vuitton Cup Begins

    This summer, Louis Vuitton takes you to the San Francisco Bay for the 30th Louis Vuitton Cup, followed by the 34th America's Cup.

    The 8th regatta in the history of the Louis Vuitton Cup, taking place in the San Francisco Bay from July 4th to September 21st, promises to be a decisive and yet unpredictable event.

    Decisive because of the three competing teams, only the winner will earn the right to challenge Oracle Team USA, the American titleholder, in the hope of capturing the 34th America's Cup trophy. Decisive too, for the defender, as a decision is made on which of its two boats will participate in the America's Cup during the trials that take place at the Louis Vuitton Cup.

    Like the seven previous regattas, this 8th Louis Vuitton Cup offers an element of surprise. The three competing teams, Artemis Racing, Emirates Team New Zealand, and Luna Rossa have recruited the finest sailors, technicians and engineers in the world. Thus, the Louis Vuitton Cup will not only be a prestigious regatta, but also a crucial preparatory phase for an America's Cup featuring boats that are difficult to master and have never been used in competition before.
