Plunge into deep space with the Galaxy capsule of the latest Louis Vuitton Men’s Ready-to-wear collection, now available in stores and online. Pushing the outer space theme of the Precollection to its furthest dimension, the capsule features undeniably galactic graphics and motifs. This celebration of the cosmos is most notably brought to life in the striking multicolour planet pattern. Printed onto luxurious wool blend knits as well as lightweight silk and compact cotton jersey, this seasonal pattern sends the capsule beyond our solar system. Denim has been given a Milky Way effect through a discharge print technique involving scrubbing some parts of the fabric with bleach and colouring others with silver pigment. The Surface Planet print, created from an enlarged detail of a painting of a planet’s surface, is interpreted onto a variety of materials, from a leather safari jacket to technical nylon board shorts.
Embracing the celestial spirit of the Men's Spring-Summer 2019 Precollection, the Galaxy capsule plays with graphic representations of our galaxy and beyond.Men Ready-to-Wear Precollection Spring-summer
Bags Unpacked: Pierre Le-Tan and Bertil Scali tell the stories of travellers around the world and reveal the secrets of their luggage.
An irresistible collection of the most glamorous, worldly and discerning travellers’ tales. Who packed ‘a thousand absolutely necessary suitcases’? Who rediscovered his notes for a perennial bestseller in a trunk at the Paris Ritz? Whose trunk contained a bed?
Here are around fifty intrepid travellers from the age of the steamer to the present: actors and heiresses, aristocrats and adventurers, rock stars, artists and fashion royalty, from Sarah Bernhardt to Sharon Stone, Tamara de Lempicka to Madonna, Paul Poiret to Karl Lagerfeld, Henri Matisse to Jeff Koons.
Pierre Le-Tan’s portraits perfectly complement Bertil Scali’s witty, entertaining stories, which unpack the bags of the famous and their first-class lifestyles for all to enjoy.
We could weave an invisible thread linking these artists, explorers and inventors whose paths often crossed, forming a kind of constellation, a cluster of life’s travellers, the aesthetes of travel.Book Suitcases Travel
Crocodile is one of the exceptional, so-called exotic leather on which the artisans of Maison Louis Vuitton exercise their unique skills, taking luxury to new heights of refinement.
There it is on a pedestal, majestic, magnificent, and utterly incomparable. A crocodile bag is a noble object; it somehow has more pride, more presence, more power than any other. Maison Louis Vuitton delights to reveal this exceptional leather, developing cutting-edge techniques or seeking out age-old traditions to make it even more exceptional. In the pantheon of exotic leathers, where python, stingray, lizard and ostrich all have a place, crocodile reigns supreme. At Louis Vuitton, working with crocodile is an adventure in itself, a thrilling exploration of new ways – through colours, treatments and innovations – to excite the imagination. It takes all the House’s legendary savoir-faire to create an object of unique beauty, as well as a lifetime companion, one that is not only sophisticated, but amazingly contemporary.
This immaculate skin requires a high level of expertise to reveal its brilliance. The artisans deploy all their skills to obtain an absolute white, as on this Capucines White bag.Exotic Handbags History Heritage Savoir-Faire
With its City Guide and Fashion Eye Series, Louis Vuitton explores photographic creation while celebrating the Art of Travel.
Both mirroring trends and setting the standard, with great attention to cosmopolitan transformation, the Louis Vuitton City Guide has explored the most magnetic metropoles for nearly twenty years. Today, thirty cities are revealed through unexpected perspectives on fashion, design, well-being, contemporary art, gastronomy and culture. Original photographs illustrate the Louis Vuitton City Guide, a vision entrusted to the photography collective Tendance Floue, who reinforce the singular point of view represented in these tomes. Patrick Tourneboeuf is the author of the photographs featured in the 2019 Paris City Guide, as French photographer Françoise Huguier shares her favourite addresses this year. During Paris Photo, the digital version of the Paris City Guide is available for free on the App Store.
With Fashion Eye - a series of photography books - Louis Vuitton evokes a city, a region or a country, seen through the eyes of a fashion photographer. Title after title, a broad compendium of perspectives emerges, one that shifts with the destinations, including urban panoramas and natural landscapes, scenes of local life, and more contemplative work. Fashion Eye creates an unprecedented dialogue between emerging talents, seasoned photographers and fashion photography legends.
On November 9th and 10th, several photographs of the Fashion Eye series will sign their books at the Paris Photo x Louis Vuitton pop-up bookstore.
