Patches have evolved from their initial function of simple identification to become the object of avid collectors around the world. The introduction of patches as souvenirs dates to the 19th century, the same period during which Louis Vuitton first created innovative trunks covered of hotel stickers for a new era of travel. Today, the Maison incorporates this tradition with this new capsule collection, emblazoning original patches on pieces such as the classic Keepall bag.
For this year's collection, the Alpes are the chosen destination, lending their natural beauty to the graphic designs. The mountainous landscape has been interpreted into three types of embroidered, embossed leather, and tufted patches for an overall adventurous style. Find this new seasonal collection online and in stores now.

After the success of the past three editions, the Journées Particulières reopened the doors to Louis Vuitton's ateliers last week-end, on October 12th, 13th and 14th, 2018.
The driving theme behind the Journées Particulières was to enable more visitors to discover the inner workings of our, often secular, continually innovative Houses which form part of our heritage. The 4th edition focused on experiences, interaction and encounters. Each venue offered a unique and original tour, designed by the host House.
In addition to the Louis Vuitton Workshops in Asnières, France, and Fiesso d'Artico in Veneto, Italy, two new locations were opened to the public this year: Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse, South of France, and the Louis Vuitton Ducey Workshop, in Normandy, France.

Learn about the special-order trunk created to protect Vermeer's "The Milkmaid" on its voyage from Amsterdam to Tokyo.
In 1924, Louis Vuitton made a trunk for the French gallerist René Gimpel, enabling him to travel worldwide and present works of art to his clients. Since then, the Maison has been entrusted by clients around the world to transport their art and supplies, creating cases that protect and transport their belongings in the most optimal conditions. In continuing with this heritage, the Rijksmuseum entrusted Louis Vuitton to create a special-order trunk to transport the masterpiece The Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer during its voyage from Amsterdam to Japan.
The trunk, handcrafted in Louis Vuitton’s historic workshops in Asnières, France, has been meticulously produced to house the painting. Adorned in the iconic Monogram canvas and the signature brass corners and lock, the trunk features personalized hand-painted stripes along with a yellow-coloured interior evoking the main colors of the masterpiece.Savoir-Faire Exhibition Trunk
