    The 23rd exhibition of the Espace culturel Louis Vuitton in Paris takes visitors on a journey into the Astral depths exploring impenetrable worlds… until May 11th 2014.

    Astralis is based on the poem by Novalis, a famous figure in early 19th century German Romanticism, and refers to the concept of the mystified self: an individual who confuses dreams and reality and who, like the artists and visitors of the exhibition, lives at the border between the visible and the invisible.

    Experience these celestial and elusive dimensions in the remarkable resurgence of the dozen international artists’ works selected by curator Pascal Pique for Musée de l’Invisible.

  • 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.

  • A WILD WEST COLLECTION

    The Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2014 Men’s collection captures the freedom of the American road trip, from East to the West, and specifically designed for modern travelers. 

    “The clothing should have that do-what-you-want attitude. It’s the changing environment from city to forest to desert.” says Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Studio and Style Director. He adapted the iconography of classic American sportswear, workwear, and formal wear to create a chic eclectic allure, always on the road.

    Icons of American pop and clothing culture are transposed in the form of a Perfecto jacket with Gaston V tuffetage, pied-de-poule checked slim pants, Japanese kimono silk blouson, tie-dyed military parka, custom Louis Vuitton Bandana print patchwork or perforated Damier caramel Nomade leather bag.
