• A LOUIS VUITTON CUP WEEKEND

    The America’s Cup Park opened last weekend by San Francisco Officials in a ribbon cutting ceremony led by the Mayor of San Francisco.

    Thousands of fans filled the Pavilion at the America’s Cup Park on a beautiful sunny July 4th in San Francisco.  Fans were excited to welcome the teams and see a presentation from each country, including an opera singer from Italy, a Swedish choir, the New Zealand Kapa Haka group, and a unique American performance by a Las Vegas group called ‘Recycled Percussion’.

    Celebrations continued the following days with a Competitors Parade and Louis Vuitton Cup party held at the Palace of Legion of Honor.

    At the Louis Vuitton Cup party, 24 musicians of "Magik Magik Orchestra" welcomed the guests, playing live classical music right in front of the Palace. Meanwhile, 3 beautiful acrobats flying the colors of each challenger's flag entertained the crowd, moving graciously in huge transparent bubbles.

    A fashion show by World Of Wearable Art (WOW) was the highlight of the evening with each challenging country represented by a piece of wearable art. The costumes in the show were especially created for the 30th anniversary of the Louis Vuitton Cup.

    A new exhibition at the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton explores the role of others in the construction of one’s own identity.

    From June 5th until September 15th 2013, ‘Otherness. I is Somebody Else’ will be exhibited at the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton in Paris. Exploring the eternal question of identity, this journey plunges into the deepest part of oneself and pushes boundaries of knowledge and consciousness from the private realm to the discovery of the Other.

    The artists who have been selected to represent this existential issue are from different countries and backgrounds. From the stage costumes of renowned performance artist Leigh Bowery to the expressionist drawings of exiled artist Reza Hazare, the works in this exhibition open up new ideas and new spaces.

    A unique grain and a subtle color palette, the Iconic Neverfull bag is finally released in Epi leather.

    Epi has always been synonymous with color at Louis Vuitton. It was the first colored leather line to be launched by the House in 1985 (you might have recently caught a glimpse of some of the collection on iconic bridges across the world).

    Today one of Louis Vuitton's Signatures will meet one of the most iconic shapes of the House thanks to the introduction of the Neverfull in Epi line. For the first time the House is launching a Neverfull in leather, a colorful addition to this iconic shape.

    This new version of the Neverfull will suit everyday occasions; a possibility to play with colors easily for a feminine, casual chic silhouette.

    Never has a full range of Epi colours been so highly anticipated.

  • Cannes Diary

    A diary of the Cannes Film Festival from Director Jordan Schiele, awarded the Jury’s Special Mention for the Louis Vuitton Journeys Awards competition in 2012.

    Louis Vuitton continues its strong link with the world of cinema through this Cannes Diary and artistic collaboration with Director Jordan Schiele. Jordan was awarded the Jury’s Special Mention for the Louis Vuitton Journeys Awards short film competition in 2012. He was also subsequently selected for the prestigious Cannes Residence program in 2012 and invited to attend the festival this year as a guest.

    The Cannes International Film Festival was founded in 1946 and is today one of the most prestigious film events in the world. This short film diary of Cannes reveals the festival through the perspective of Louis Vuitton including life in hotels, the premier party for Sofia Coppola’s film "The Bling Ring", the red carpet and numerous encounters with celebrities. All this is done through a cinematic lens with resonating nostalgia, complimented by the music from Maurice Chevalier’s "You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me" and the voice of George Goldenstern.

  • A Damier Signature, Part Two

    At the Paris World Fair in 1889, the Damier canvas was born - a patented invention with, for the first time, the inscription “L. Vuitton registered trademark”.

    Almost a century after its creation in 1888, the Damier pattern was reintroduced by Maison Louis Vuitton. Among the wide range of Damier canvases that have been introduced since then, the darker palette - subtle and elegant - has been one of the most appreciated.

    More masculine and revisited in black and anthracite, the Damier has become undeniably urban. Damier Graphite is the first Louis Vuitton line solely dedicated to men. Adorned in smooth black leather and polished palladium hardware, the historic motif adopts an urban look that is stylish, streamlined, modern and cosmopolitan.

    The Damier story continues...
