An exclusive Japan Room at “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton” in Tokyo.
Louis Vuitton has long enjoyed a unique and steadfast relationship with Japan, founded on the principles of tradition and modernity.
In the land of the rising sun, tradition is expressed in the conservation of a cultural system, which allows the preservation of the past and the collective memory of a nation.
From a Western perspective, Japan is also the land that creates modernity.
Similarly, Louis Vuitton has skilfully cultivated the aristocratic foundations of its history while venturing onto the cutting edge of modernity and futurism.
Within this ambiguity, the House found commonalties and reciprocal recognition with Japan: be it the inimitable, innovative designs entrusted to Takashi Murakami or Yayoi Kusama, or Rei Kawakubo for Comme Des Garçons, be it a makeup trunk for a kabuki actor or an 1883 cabin trunk for a Japanese dignitary, the objects born of this encounter effortlessly stake their claim in the present.
Gaston-Louis Vuitton collected tsuba, the decorated guards commonly found at the base of the grip of bladed Japanese weapons; his father, Georges, was fascinated by Japanese motifs, like those found on mon, the culture’s family crests that perceptibly influenced the famed Monogram, further evidence of the admiration between Louis Vuitton and Japan.

Reopening of the Asnières atelier and the Galerie in May.
The Asnières atelier is the true hub of the House. Barely five years after founding his House, Louis Vuitton began to outgrow his Parisian headquarters. In 1859, he relocated the new workshops to Asnières, a village a few kilometers northwest of Paris.
These new ateliers were built in the ethereal Eiffel style, combining glass and steel. The exceptional savoir-faire of the Asnières artisans is such that, even today, key pieces are created here: rigid trunks, designs in rare or exotic leathers, special orders.
Visit Asnières to discover the intimate aspects of Louis Vuitton’s history, its ties with the ateliers, and admire in details the presence of the Louis Vuitton universe in every creations.
