• TRAVELERS’ TALES

    Bags Unpacked: Pierre Le-Tan and Bertil Scali tell the stories of travelers around the world and reveal the secrets of their luggage.

    An irresistible collection of the most glamorous, worldly and discerning travelers’ tales. Who packed ‘a thousand absolutely necessary suitcases’? Who rediscovered his notes for a perennial bestseller in a trunk at the Paris Ritz? Whose trunk contained a bed?

    Here are around fifty intrepid travelers from the age of the steamer to the present: actors and heiresses, aristocrats and adventurers, rock stars, artists and fashion royalty, from Sarah Bernhardt to Sharon Stone, Tamara de Lempicka to Madonna, Paul Poiret to Karl Lagerfeld, Henri Matisse to Jeff Koons.

    Pierre Le-Tan’s portraits perfectly complement Bertil Scali’s witty, entertaining stories, which unpack the bags of the famous and their first-class lifestyles for all to enjoy.

    We could weave an invisible thread linking these artists, explorers and inventors whose paths often crossed, forming a kind of constellation, a cluster of life’s travelers, the aesthetes of travel.

    On the occasion of Paris Photo (November 8 to 11), Louis Vuitton invites you to discover its publications and pop-up bookstore located on the left-hand side of the Grand Palais stairway of honor.

    With its City Guide and Fashion Eye Series, Louis Vuitton explores photographic creation while celebrating the Art of Travel.

    Both mirroring trends and setting the standard, with great attention to cosmopolitan transformation, the Louis Vuitton City Guide has explored the most magnetic metropoles for nearly twenty years. Today thirty cities have been revealed through unexpected perspectives on fashion, design, well-being, contemporary art, gastronomy and culture.  Original photographs illustrate the Louis Vuitton City Guide, a vision entrusted to the photography collective Tendance Floue, who reinforce the singular point of view represented in these tomes. Patrick Tourneboeuf is the author of the photographs featured in the 2019 Paris City Guide, as French photographer Françoise Huguier shares her favourite addresses this year. During Paris Photo, the digital version of the Paris City Guide is available for free on the App Store.

    With Fashion Eye, its series of photography books, Louis Vuitton evokes a city, a region or a country, seen through the eyes of a fashion photographer. Title after title, a broad compendium of perspectives emerges, one that shifts with the destinations, including urban panoramas and natural landscapes, scenes of local life, and more contemplative work. Fashion Eye creates an unprecedented dialogue between emerging talents, seasoned photographers and fashion photography legends.

    On November 9th and 10th, several photographs of the Fashion Eye series will sign their books at the Paris Photo x Louis Vuitton pop-up bookstore.

    Louis Vuitton's newest capsule collaboration features Grace Coddington's playful animal illustrations on accessories, leather goods and more.

    A playful look at the latest Louis Vuitton collaboration with Grace Coddington

    The iconoclastic fashion editor and self-professed animal-lover Grace Coddington has designed a capsule collection with her friend and Nicolas Ghesquière. Her illustrations of her Persian cats, Pumpkin and Blanket, and Léon, the Louis Vuitton Artistic Director's dog, are playfully splashed across a varied selection of accessories, ready-to-wear, leather goods, and shoes. Classic Louis Vuitton pieces such as the Speedy and Neverfull Bags are given an imaginative twist while new clutch bags and other small leather goods take on smiling, cartoon forms.

  • FASHION EYE SERIES OF PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS

    • FASHION EYE SERIES OF PHOTOGRAPHY BOOKS - Louis Vuitton Art & Travel NEWS
    Synonymous with the art of travel since 1854, Louis Vuitton is adding another five titles to its Fashion Eye series of photography books.

    This fall, five photographers invite us to travel to new horizons: Cretto di Burri by Olivier Toscani, Iran by Harley Weir, Geneva by Paul Rousteau, Silk Road by Kishin Shinoyama and Bali by Quentin de Briey. Each book evokes a city, a region or a country, seen through the eyes of a fashion photographer. 

    As the most recent addition to the Éditions Louis Vuitton line-up, Fashion Eye brings a new dimension to the range of Travel Books conceived by the luxury house. After the City Guides offering a refreshing and offbeat perspective on familiar and less familiar metropolises, and the Travel Books rekindling the idea of the artist’s notebook, with this third collection travel photography indirectly showcases fashion, thanks to the talents of photographers most often noted for their work in this field.
