  • TRIBUTE TO PATRICK-LOUIS VUITTON

    It is with profound emotion and sadness that we have learned of the passing of Patrick-Louis Vuitton.

    We wish to share with you a message from Michael Burke: “This morning, we all share the same grief. Patrick-Louis was an emblematic figure of the Vuitton family and of our House. My thoughts are with his friends and family, in particular his sons Pierre-Louis and Benoît-Louis, who work beside us, as well as his grandchildren. On behalf of all the teams, we send them our support."

    Patrick-Louis followed the family tradition by joining the House in 1973 as carpenter craftsman. After a lifetime of work dedicated to excellence and creativity, he acquired a perfect expertise of our savoir-faire, invented and produced hundreds of extraordinary trunks that carry on our legacy of the Art of Travel. Patrick-Louis possessed an avant-garde and modern spirit, along with a “strong-tempered personality from the Jura” a reference he often enjoyed using to describe himself. He always knew how to nourish the House’s heritage and to give vision for the future. “Savoir-faire can only exist if it is transmitted…” was one of his favorite expressions. Patrick-Louis will be heavily missed, especially at Asnières, in the Special Orders workshop, where the emotions of the teams who worked side-by-side with him are deeply felt.

  • TIME CAPSULE EXHIBITION IN MILAN

    Louis Vuitton presents the Time Capsule exhibition, a journey through the history of the Maison, opening on 20th September 2019 in Milan.

    In this travelling exhibit, Louis Vuitton's story is told through an exclusive selection of one-of-a-kind objects from the Maison's archives, from 1854 to today. Presented as a thematic itinerary, the exhibit celebrates the strong pioneering spirit that has characterised the Maison since its creation 165 years ago. Focusing on four fundamental aspects: inventions, travel, the art of preserving objects and the icons of the Maison, Time Capsule shows just how visionary Louis Vuitton has been in foreseeing travellers’ desires and needs as everyday means of transportation have drastically evolved over time. 

    For this Italian edition, one of the special pieces on display is "Boîte Milano", a unique trunk made for the International Exhibition of Decorative and Modern Arts of Paris in 1925. Time Capsule Milan also features modern-day objects such as ready-to-wear creations by the current Women's Artistic Director Nicolas Ghesquière and Men's Artistic Director Virgil Abloh, as well as pieces from Louis Vuitton's Objets Nomades Collection in collaboration with internationally renowned designers such as Patricia Urquiola and Marcel Wanders.

  • GO FOR GOOD AT GALERIES LAFAYETTE

    Go For Good at Galeries Lafayette - Louis Vuitton Heritage NEWS
    Louis Vuitton participates in the French department store’s sustainability project “Go for Good.”

    Throughout Louis Vuitton’s history, the Maison has strived to create objects that stand the test of time and can be passed down from generation to generation. Louis Vuitton’s participation in Galeries Lafayette's "Go For Good" project reaffirms a long-standing commitment to sustainability. In order to continue to prioritise the longevity of its creations, the Maison is invested in preserving the natural raw materials on which the beauty and quality of its products depend. 

    Through local, social, and environmental actions, Louis Vuitton carries out this conviction across all its activities and product categories. Louis Vuitton’s leather goods workshops have been certified “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivante” from the French government, a unique distinction for companies with artisanal savoir-faire that are committed to maintaining production in France. Since its founding in 1854, Louis Vuitton has chosen to use leathers tanned with natural plant extracts for its signature pieces with the aim of minimising the environmental impacts of each step of production. The Parfums Louis Vuitton Collection, released in 2016, was designed to be endlessly refillable to eliminate the need for additional packaging. The Be Mindful capsule of accessories and textiles gives silk a second life by upcycling them into unique Louis Vuitton creations, while the Maison’s UNICEF partnership donates a portion of sales of the Silver Lockit bracelets to supporting vulnerable children worldwide. These are just some of the initiatives the Maison has taken to further its social and environmental sustainability, earning it a place in the Galeries Lafayette “Go For Good” project.

    By purchasing the Silver Lockit Colour, clients have the opportunity to support UNICEF, contributing to efforts for children in vulnerable situations, such as in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe, where UNICEF has deployed resources to help the children devastated by the two cyclones.

    Since the launch of the Silver Lockit in 2016, the partnership has raised over seven million euros for UNICEF.

    The Silver Lockit, inspired by the tumbler lock invented by Georges Vuitton in 1890 to protect clients’ most precious belongings, is a symbol of protection. It was chosen as a symbol of sealing one’s promise to help children at risk. The Silver Lockit Colour retails at 250€, 100€ of which is donated to UNICEF.
