• TIME CAPSULE EXHIBITION IN SINGAPORE

    Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce the opening of the "Time Capsule" exhibition, from Oct. 18th - Nov. 5th, featuring a hand selected collection of pieces from the Louis Vuitton archive.

    Traveling from 1854 to the present day, visitors will embark on a journey that revisits landmark innovations on technology and design through the history of the luxury House. The story is told using rare and celebrated objects selected from the Louis Vuitton archives. Time Capsule begins with French artisans demonstrating traditional leatherwork skills that remain as relevant today as they have been practiced within the walls of Asnieres in the past century. The exhibition then follows a visual timeline, focusing on five key aspects such as, the Codes of the House, Journeys around the World, Elegance and Beauty in Motion, Louis Vuitton and the Arts and Magic Malle.

    Visitors will enjoy unprecedented access to some of the most valuable pieces from Louis Vuitton’s archives. Guided tours of the exhibition will also be provided to local community groups including schools and charities.

  • LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK “MEXICO”

    In his Travel Book, the French writer, illustrator and painter Nicolas de Crécy depicts Mexico as a baroque country full of poetry.

    His books, inspired by philosophy, literature and Surrealism, come in varied graphic and stylistic forms. The books revisit many genres such as graphic novels, mangas, travel books, drawings and several techniques such as ink, watercolor, pencil, gouache, pen, and chalk.

    Some panels of his Mexico Travel Book, packed with detail, call for color, while others are simple, drawn quickly and incisively with a ballpoint pen or black ink. Alternating them brings out the best in each. Nicolas de Crécy’s book is a reflection of the country; baroque, feverish and powerful.

    A limited edition of the Travel Book, numbered and signed by the artist, is available in select Louis Vuitton stores.

  • LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK “TOKYO” BY EBOY

    The eBoy collective, pioneer of pixel art, walks around Tokyo for a new title in the Louis Vuitton Travel Book collection with a pleasing freshness.

    The eBoy creations “drawings” doesn’t seem to be quite the right word, sounds somehow familiar. No doubt, because of the drawings incorporate influences from advertising, arcade games, supermarket shelves, Lego, magazine designs, etc...

    These pixelated works are simple yet complex. Inevitably abstract and yet so close to reality that we are sometimes amazed to recognize the faces of those who populate them, as in this Travel Book devoted to Tokyo. Their playful universe is nonetheless demanding. Impressionistic and pointillistic, it is also systematic, almost mathematical. In short, it’s unique.

    Each Travel Book title contains the artist's biography, travelogue, blurbs and captions. In its pages, the illustrations of renowned artists and promising young talents tell the stories of the cities and countries they have visited. Each depicting the place’s varied architecture, special light, and recording the passing days and the lives of its people.

    For each new title, a numbered and signed limited edition is available in select Louis Vuitton stores.

  • CABINET OF WONDERS - THE GASTON-LOUIS VUITTON COLLECTION

    With more than one thousand objects and documents, this new book pays homage to Gaston-Louis Vuitton, an ‘unrepentant collector’, with wide interests and voracious curiosity.

    A collector since his childhood, Gaston-Louis Vuitton, who belonged to the third generation of the Vuitton family, accumulated hundreds of objects from far and wide.

    Gaston-Louis’ three principal hobbies were books, gardening, and photography. A captain of industry with eclectic tastes, his imagination was fed by colorful geometric window displays, realizing his clients’ most extravagant desires, and initiating collaborations between artists, sculptors, illustrators and decorators of the Art Deco period.

    With more than one thousand objects and unpublished documents, this is a cabinet of curiosities in book form, revealing the passions of an indefatigable traveller (Exotica), a scrupulous inventor (Scientifica), a meticulous craftsman (Artificialia), and an erudite bibliophile (Mirabilia).

    Edited by Patrick Mauriès, with texts by John Banville, Stephen Bayley, Alberto Manguel, Delphine Saurat, Pierre Senges, this book is available in Louis Vuitton stores worldwide, and in bookstores from September 2017.
