• CHARLOTTE PERRIAND: INVENTING A NEW WORLD

    The Fondation Louis Vuitton opens a large-scale exhibition dedicated to Charlotte Perriand

    Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999), a free woman, pioneer of modernity, a leading figure of the XX century design, who contributed to the definition of a new art de vivre

    Charlotte Perriand was born on 24 October 1903 in Paris. She studied at the École de l'Union Centrale des Arts Décoratifs from 1920 to 1925. Two years later, she began working as an interior designer, based at her studio on Place Saint-Sulpice. Her research and interest in furniture design led her to collaborate with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in the 1920s and 1930s. 

    To mark the twentieth anniversary of the passing of Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999), the Fondation pays tribute to her as an architect and visionary creator through an exhibition of her work exploring the links between art, architecture and design.

  • “ABOUT TIME” EXHIBITION AT THE COSTUME INSTITUTE

    About Time Exhibition at the Costume Institute - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    Announcing the upcoming Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition “About Time: Fashion and Duration,” made possible by Louis Vuitton.

    The exhibit will trace more than a century and a half of fashion, from 1870 to the present, along a disruptive timeline, as part of the Museum’s 150th-anniversary celebration. Employing philosopher Henri Bergson’s concept of la durée—time that flows, accumulates and is indivisible—the exhibition will explore how clothes generate temporal associations that conflate the past, present and future. The exhibition is made possible by Louis Vuitton, with additional support provided by Condé Nast.

    In celebration of the opening, The Costume Institute Benefit, also known as The Met Gala, will take place on Monday, 4th May 2020.  Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director Nicolas Ghesquière will co-chair the event along with Emma Stone, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep and Anna Wintour.
