Dubbed V.N.R (Vuitton New Runner), Louis Vuitton's new sneakers boast a technical elegance that has already earned them iconic status.
Lightweight, flexible and leading-edge, the V.N.R combines know-how and aesthetics in one. One year's research and development was required to manufacture these trainers with an urban flair. They take their inspiration from the house's heritage, while meeting the demands of style and technical expertise.
Comfortably wrapping the foot to provide extra support, they are crafted in an ultra-light breathable knit, while the three-piece outsole is assembled by hand. The crowning detail is the gradient hand-painted sole, which adds a touch of modern sophistication. The model is initially available in four colours: denim blue, space grey, pure white and bold black.Men's Ready-to-Wear Louis Vuitton VNR runner VNR sneakers
Travel, especially to destinations far-away and unknown, is the eternal source of inspiration within the Louis Vuitton universe.
What changes from season to season, and especially as captured in the latest Spirit of Travel campaign, is how the designs are reimagined to reflect their time. The latest collection – including bags, shoes and eyewear – further the heritage of the Maison while introducing noticeable elements of newness. Whether the Silhouette ankle boot with its high sculpted heel; the stylishly serviceable Bumbag; or the My LockMe bag with its singular monogram closure, each creation advances Louis Vuitton’s heritage and savoir faire. Leather goods such as the Camera Bag and the iPhone Eye-Trunk, both in signature Monogram, fulfil the dual experience of being present in the moment versus recording future memories. Lastly, the eyewear collection becomes an instant essential – a new frame for viewing all the adventures ahead.Travel Campaign
The Spring-Summer look for the Louis Vuitton man mixes graphic colours and exotic motifs in smart casual style.
In its Spring-Summer 2018 campaign, Kim Jones' last menswear collection for Louis Vuitton is showcased far from the catwalk in a coastal setting inspired by surfing and fine sandy beaches. Graphic appliqué details accent the iconic pieces, while bold colours stand out against a Damier check or elegant leather background.
A striped knit crew-neck jumper, a mixed leather varsity jacket featuring a motif on the back and chinos reflect the graphic elegance of this season's male wardrobe. The same style dominates the accessories, including the summer's star trainer, a leather zip bum bag and a colourful beach towel.Collection Men Ready to Wear Kim Jones Spring-Summer 2018
Throughout the galleries of the Frank Gehry building, "In Tune with the World" unveils a new selection of artists from the Collection, bringing together modern and contemporary works.
More than a simple hanging of works, "In Tune with the World" (11th April - 27th August 2018) is intended to be an exhibition based on a specific theme. This reflects today’s questions about man’s place in the universe and the bonds that tie him to his surrounding environment and living world, highlighting the interconnections between humans, animals, plants, and even inanimate objects.
Two complementary sequences cover the entire building: an immersion into the world of Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and Man in the living universe, bringing together 28 French and international artists from different generations and techniques, among them Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, Yves Klein, François Morellet and Pierre Huyghe.
