• CRUISE 2018 SHOW: AT THE MIHO MUSEUM

    Louis Vuitton presents its Cruise collection at the Miho Museum east of Kyoto.

    Louis Vuitton is heading to Kyoto, Japan, for its Cruise collection, which will be held on Sunday, May 14th.
     
    The  spirit of travel, the discovery of extraordinary natural environments, architectural masterpieces and art, are intrinsically connected to Louis Vuitton. In keeping with the House's tradition, the Cruise show will be held in the outer worldly setting of the Miho Museum, designed by I.M. Pei, the architect of the Grand Louvre and its pyramids in Paris.
     
    Inaugurated in 1997, the Miho Museum was conceived to be a terrestrial paradise, inspired by Shangri-La, the legendary heaven-on-earth. Nestled in a hidden valley, the museum is revealed through a spectacular metal tunnel and a futuristic suspension bridge. This unique home to more than a thousand works of art, blends exoticism with modernity, while steeped in the most luscious forest.

    This is the first time in the museum’s history that it will play host to such an event.
     
    "The place inspired me right away," explains Nicolas Ghesquière, Artistic Director of Women's Collections at Louis Vuitton. "After the desert and Palm Springs, the ocean and Rio, I wanted to introduce people to another landscape, to immerse them in a sea of green. With the I.M. Pei's Miho Museum we are continuing an architectural voyage that suits the Maison Louis Vuitton to a tee. For our 2018 Cruise fashion show we are transported into a tangled web of nature, geographical greatness and a unique architectural vision.

    Louis Vuitton's Cruise fashion show will be broadcasted live May 14th, on louisvuitton.com.

  • MASTERS - A COLLABORATION WITH JEFF KOONS

    Louis Vuitton unveils the second collection of bags and accessories designed with the world-renowned contemporary artist on October 27th, 2017.

    In recent years, Louis Vuitton has affirmed its engagement with the world of art through a series of high-profile collaborations with the most influential artists of our time. The second series of the Jeff Koons Masters collection builds on the well-established foundation, further exploring the intersection of fashion and art.

    This month, Louis Vuitton will launch a second collection conceived with Jeff Koons. Recognized as one of the most influential living artists and based on the artist’s “Masters” series of paintings, this second chapter will debut on October 27th, which will include: Reclining Girl by François Boucher; Delightful Land by Paul Gauguin; Luncheon on the Grass by Edouard Manet; Water Lilies by Claude Monet; The Triumph of Pan by Nicolas Poussin (exclusive for Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme) and Ancient Rome by J.m.W. Turner.

    This new set of paintings relates to Koons’ connection to each of the artists. “They are part of my DNA,” Koons says “When somebody walks down the street with this bag, or sits in a cafe with this bag,” Koons says of the Manet Neverfull, “it’s communicating a love of humanism.”
