Louis Vuitton teams up once again with Roland-Garros with its trophy trunks
For Roland-Garros 2018, Louis Vuitton has joined forces with the French Tennis Federation for the second consecutive year. The Women’s Singles and Men’s Singles champions of Roland Garros’ tournament will respectively win the prestigious Suzanne Lenglen Cup and the Musketeers’ Cup. These trophies will be presented in two trunks designed by Louis Vuitton and customised with the poster for 2018’s tournament. This marks a legitimate collaboration for two illustrious French brands particularly attached to know-how, excellence, art, and promoting Paris and France worldwide.
Since Louis Vuitton was founded in 1854, the customisation of its products through painting has been an integral part of its DNA and traditional know-how. The 2018 Roland-Garros poster, designed by the artist Fabienne Verdier, will be painted on the “trophy” trunks. This customisation, given pride of place once again this year, will add an exceptional and unique artistic touch to these cases. More than a means of identification, customisation above all makes it possible to meet customers’ specific needs.Trunks Trophies Know-how

Nicolas Ghesquière’s latest Louis Vuitton collection proposed looks as singular as the show’s artistic setting.
Amidst the verdant brush of Saint-Paul-de-Vence, the Fondation Maeght's exceptional gardens became a winding runway where models marched around works by Joan Miró and Alberto Giacometti. For this Cruise 2019 collection, Nicolas Ghesquière’s vision was noticeably eclectic, evoking modern art’s disruptive originality while remaining free of any deliberate homage.
Well-defined volumes were rendered with fluidity, as declarative shoulders and rounded sleeves were pitched against shorter lengths, lingerie-inspired sensuality, and artisanal surface detail. Colors were arranged judiciously or delivered with bursts of expression; floral and graphic motifs made their impact in layers that created dynamic dimension around the body. The maximized sneaker soles that have become a recent Louis Vuitton signature extended up the leg as new boot signatures. Lively animal illustrations by Grace Coddington inspired by her cats and the designer’s dog were an unexpected flourish on a capsule of leathergoods.
Further enhanced by a conceptual performance from Woodkid, who sourced rare acoustic instruments and overlaid the voice of Jennifer Connelly, the show played out with charismatic flourish. In this way, it underscored Ghesquière’s personal connection to the property as an ongoing inspiration he wished to share: "I’ve known this place for twenty-five years and I love coming here regularly. It has a beautiful family history, a particular story about passionate gallerists who, along with all the artists for whom they were both friends and patrons, invented an extraordinary place for artistic dialogue."Cruise Louis Vuitton Fondation Maeght
