The Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme, set in this most storied of Parisian squares, marks the House’s return to where its story began over 160 years ago, when Louis Vuitton opened his first store.

    Travel goods, fashion and jewellery have been part of Place Vendôme and its neighbourhood for over 300 years, and it was in these streets that Louis Vuitton learned his craft and where he founded his first store in 1854. 

    This venue is very symbolic for Louis Vuitton as the Place Vendôme – just like the Château of Versailles – is one of the most beautiful examples of French artistry of the 17th-century. Under the impulse of Louis XIV and Jean-Baptiste Colbert, the Château of Versailles became the cradle of French luxury and a showcase for French craftsmanship and savoir-faire around the world. Both designed and built by architect Jules Hardouin-Mansart, Place Vendôme and Versailles share a heritage that today remains important to Louis Vuitton.

    These two beautiful examples of French artistry embody the type of elegance and dedication to craft that is today the realm of Louis Vuitton. As the worthy heir to this tradition, it was only natural for Louis Vuitton to establish workshops and showcases its creations at the heart of Place Vendôme, thus ensuring that the legacy continues for future generations.

    A closer look at selected details and season signatures from Nicolas Ghesquière's Spring-Summer 2018 collection, as seen from the front row.

    During a visit to the Met Museum in New York, Nicolas Ghesquière was inspired by the notion of a perennial style while looking at eighteenth-century French aristocratic garments.

    Thus the refinement of ceremonial dress—the abundant brocade, fine embroidery, and exceeding delicacy of period clothing—blends with the dynamic yet casual modernity of clothes today. An elaborate tail coat can drape harmoniously over tapered trousers, and a melancholic dress can flow beautifully down to sneakers from another world.

    In this delicate style the House skips across time and dovetails the ages.
