• LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK COLLECTION INTRODUCES VENICE

    Louis Vuitton publishes two new titles in its “Travel Book” collection. In this edition, famous Japanese Manga Artist Jirô Taniguchi imagines a story at the very heart of Venice.

    Jirô Taniguchi was born in 1947 in the small southern Japanese town of Tottori, famous for its sand dunes. An avid reader of manga as a teenager, he discovered gekiga, whose realistic style strongly influenced his artistic development. In this travel book dedicated to Venice, Taniguchi conveys acute sensitivity and deep poetry. The subtle harmony of the narration suffuses this refinement with a degree of nostalgia.

    The Louis Vuitton “Travel Book” collection is an invitation to real and virtual voyages, offering a contemporary vision of travel. In its pages, the illustrations of renowned artists and promising young talents tell the stories of the cities and countries they have visited, depicting each place’s varied architecture and special light, and recording the passing days and the lives of its people.

  • MICHELLE WILLIAMS GRASPS FOR EMPRISE

    • MICHELLE WILLIAMS GRASPS FOR EMPRISE - Louis Vuitton Fashion NEWS
    The Emprise collection of watches and fine jewelry perfectly integrates within the Parisian style atmosphere found in this year’s Michelle Williams ad campaign.

    The rigorous styling of this collection falls within an aristocratic lineage, imbued with a purely Parisian heritage. The severe outlines of the volumes and the precious stone assemblies with their myriad reflections reproduce the magnificent perspectives created in Paris by Baron Haussmann during the 19th century, and the long procession of salons and interplay of mirrors found in the rich townhouses around the Parc Monceau. Gold tassels that tremble at the slightest movement recall the Haute Couture and gaiety of Second Empire festivities.

    On this visual, a graphic and delicate yellow gold watch from the new Emprise collection is worn by Michelle Williams to discover here along with the entire collection.

    Captivating and mysterious, Michelle Williams brings a new facet to feminity within Louis Vuitton’s latest advertising campaign featuring the Lockit Fine Jewelry collection.

    A modern symbol of attachment for lovers all over the world, the padlock is one of Louis Vuitton’s iconic signatures, from the Steamer, the Maison’s first bag to be closed with a padlock, to the new Lockit jewelry collection.

    Hooked on as a clasp on the bracelets, cuffing the beloved’s wrist, the padlock represents the ultimate step of attachment. While worn as a pendant, it becomes a symbol of freedom, swaying along a chain next to a set of keys, like love that has broken free of convention.

    Available in rose, yellow or white gold, a version is adorned in diamonds with an accompanying white gold key.

    • LOUIS VUITTON 2014 PRE-COLLECTION WINTER ESSENTIAL’S  - Louis Vuitton Fashion NEWS
    A Women’s Pre-Fall and Icons collections for Louis Vuitton inspired by Charlotte Perriand’s modern, timeless and comfortable allure to be twisted with the 80’s top models’ hypnotic silhouette.

    Upon returning from Japan in the 1940's, the architect, designer and photographer, Charlotte Perriand, wrote: “A new way of living awaited me there: work, leisure, discovery, representation. I had made up my wardrobe with interchangeable “modules,” as in my investigations of standardization: four skirts, long or short, for the lower body and sweaters, blouses and bustiers for the top, all of which combined to give me at least 16 possibilities. By adding scarves, stoles, atypical jewels and gloves, I achieved wide variety with a great deal of surprise and fantasy.”

    In this regard, the clothes from the 2014/2015 Icons collection are designed to face the challenges of a busy woman’s life. The wardrobe offers modern comfort and nomad elegance, together with exceptional craftsmanship and a basic colour palette including burgundy, park green, navy, black and beige.

    To add effortless glamour to your silhouette, the 2014 Pre-Fall collection associates the essence of the 1980's throughout new suiting, fluid dresses, outerwear, with contrasted elements such as leather, fur, sequins graffiti prints and embroideries.
