• LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK "PRAGUE"

    For Pavel Pepperstein, Prague is a place of sentimental value with an almost protective character.

    He arrived there from his native Russia at the age of fourteen and was “immediately struck by the beauty and mystery of this incredible city”, at that time less sophisticated and less of a tourist destination. The dilapidated state of certain deserted neighbourhoods served to reinforce the city’s enigmatic nature. “I have never since felt the force of that kind of presence, and never had such a strong sense of the essence of Europe anywhere else.” Pavel Pepperstein praises the city’s different neighbourhoods, such as the very popular St. Vitus Cathedral, and is equally enthusiastic about the dilapidated areas and semi-abandoned factories at the end of the tram lines.

    Pavel Pepperstein is a multi-disciplinary artist, while drawing remains his core medium and raw material, he is also an author, theorist and musician. Ever observant and critical of the society he inhabits, in 2009 Pavel Pepperstein was chosen to represent Russia at the Venice Biennale.

  • THE WOMEN’S FALL-WINTER 2018 COLLECTION

    The Women’s Fall-Winter 2018 collection by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton presents elegant eclecticism and thoughtful craftsmanship.

    In the new video that accompanies the Women’s Fall-Winter 2018 collection, key looks and accessories come through with a sense of individuality and reinforce the strength of inspired design. Nicolas Ghesquière developed the ready-to-wear with an eye oriented towards contemporary savoir-faire, such that a bustier embroidered by hand using a crochet technique gives off metallic lustre, while a tweed jacket hand-stitched with chain embroidery elevates a traditional pattern with extra shine. Colour-blocked dresses and tops boast inlays of silk and jersey that reinforce the collection’s contrasting attitudes of elegance and sport style. The Headline shoes combine craftsmanship and artistic flourish: hand-painted ostrich leather, a heel enveloped in python, and a metal-and-leather accessory placed by hand comprise this striking design. These are just a few glimpses into the array of detailing that makes up the collection. Each new statement on each girl is the sum of myriad well-considered parts.

    The Women’s Fall-Winter 2018 collection by Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton explores space through classicism and sparkle.

    This collection is an invitation to travel between past and future by linking savoir-faire with forward vision. Recombining established wardrobe codes, remixing era references and reimagining contemporary elegance, Nicolas Ghesquière has proposed an offering that appears at once original and familiar. Whether an ample coat or a fluid evening dress, slim trousers or blouses with flattering volumes, his collection asserts an updated interpretation of French chic. Colours enhance classic silhouettes and eclectic flourishes add new sophistication. Alongside these looks are the latest handbag, which further the iconic signatures of Louis Vuitton. Among the standouts: a hatbox scaled down to a miniature size in the classic Monogram canvas; or the new Petite Malle, which envelops the Maison’s heritage with a layer of sparkle. Altogether, a sense of fluid force designed to endure.

  • LES VOYAGES DE JACQUES CAVALLIER BELLETRUD

    From the ends of the world to Grasse, discovering perfumery’s most luxurious raw ingredients.

    A native of Grasse, the cradle of both perfumery and leather work, Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud created each of his new men’s perfumes in his creative atelier at Les Fontaines Parfumées.

    In this Provençal estate, surrounded by flower fields and citrus groves, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud composes and formulates immobile journeys designed to take shape on the surface of the skin. To do so, he draws from the most exquisite raw materials in the world. He travels the five continents in quest of olfactory emotion: knows by heart all the steps necessary to cultivate Pallida iris and Peruvian balsam, the artisanal harvesting of which he tracks in Salvador; negotiates the quality of citrus with growers in Calabria, and purchases the most aromatic cocoa beans on the Ivory Coast, as well as Sambac jasmine in China. But once the ingredients are sourced, they are transported to his hometown of Grasse, and the transformation begins. Bolstered by the exceptional knowledge in Grasse where, from one generation to the next, experts perfect and transmit techniques for transforming raw materials and performing carbon dioxide extractions. Each petal is reverently respected; resulting in infusions so faithful to the original plant that they could already stand on their own as perfumes.

  • LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK "ROUTE 66"

    In this Travel Book, the comic-book artist Thomas Ott describes Route 66's fall, as is his wont. The end of the journey cannot be a happy ending, only a culdesac, a dead end.

    Only Thomas Ott, a true film fanatic nourished on comic books and novels, could rush with such fervour to the legendary US Route 66. From Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica, California, he travelled nearly 4,500 kilometres over a period of three weeks. 

    “Route 66 is a forgotten world. No one uses it. The landscapes are bare. The towns are in ruins. The streets are empty and silent. These are ghost towns, frozen in the past. I illustrate this lost America along the road.” 

    As the horizon stretches out, the traveller becomes intoxicated with movement, space and freedom.

    Thomas Ott, born in 1966 in Zurich, is one of the rare comic-book artists to work in black and white, a powerful choice he made over thirty years ago. With infinite patience, he scrapes away at the Indiaink-coated surface of scratchboards with a utility knife, his hatch marks uncovering the white underneath to create the sharp contours of a world that belong to him alone.
