• ON THE ROAD TO PHILOSOPHY WITH MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS

    Wide open spaces of America have inspired the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2014 menswear collection featuring the Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts and the new Damier Cobalt line.

    In this film, 2013 César awarded most promising male actor, Matthias Schoenaerts shares his views on acting, traveling and personal experiences: “I think it’s human nature to look for what is comfortable… It’s very important to break boundaries for yourself in order to grow… you look for people that take you away from your comfort zone, keep an open mind and keep on dreaming, ... stay curious.”

    The campaign shot by Mikael Jansson presents the Damier Cobalt leather goods unveiled at the last Fall/Winter 2014-2015 show, notably the Keepall 55 Band bag, now available in stores along with all products.

    Discover the House’s new window displays inspired directly from Gaston-Louis Vuitton’s original sketches and adapted here for the 21st century.

    Gaston-Louis has been described as a visionary as well as an aesthete, a man of his time while turned towards the future. One of his diverse and multiple interests was the conception and creation of windows displays. In a time where store windows were reinvented every week, his passion combined with grasping the aesthetic of the twenties allowed him to imagine numerous displays from a graphic and geometric standpoint; a series of modern sceneries that still feel relevant today in 2014.

    In 1925, he wrote an essay for the publication Vendre on this matter: “The art of creating a window display fall both within a sharp sense of architecture and the skills of a stage director”.

    He finishes the piece on a more poetic note: “The picturesque streets of the older days with its curious boutiques are now gone forever. While the 19th century street was quite dull, a wind of change seems to be blowing in this new century: the shopkeeper transformed his front window into a magnificent and modern façade. Let’s turn the street into a cheerful space (…). By our daily renewed efforts let’s draw the passer-by, let’s give him a reason to dawdle, to stroll!”
