• MIND OF A VISIONARY

    Share the views of five cutting-edge visionaries in fields as broad as literature, economics and politics interviewed at the 2014 World Economic Forum.

    The World Economic Forum ‘s Annual meeting last January in Davos, Switzerland, gave Louis Vuitton the perfect setting to interview five business leaders of the international scene: Tom Reiss, Félix Marquardt, Atiq Rahimi, Gino Yu and Lourenço Bustani.

    In these films, these entrepreneur travellers, chosen for their shared views and values in terms of excellence and innovation, discuss the notions of elegance, travelling and moving frontiers.

    For Tom Reiss, elegance is “about remaining true to yourself first of all, (…) about keeping a connection to the past, keeping a connection to some kind of tradition. That’s very personal; it can be a very personal tradition (…) about finding meaning in what you wear just like there is meaning in what you do.”

    Discover the House’s new window displays inspired directly from Gaston-Louis Vuitton’s original sketches and adapted here for the 21st century.

    Gaston-Louis has been described as a visionary as well as an aesthete, a man of his time while turned towards the future. One of his diverse and multiple interests was the conception and creation of windows displays. In a time where store windows were reinvented every week, his passion combined with grasping the aesthetic of the twenties allowed him to imagine numerous displays from a graphic and geometric standpoint; a series of modern sceneries that still feel relevant today in 2014.

    In 1925, he wrote an essay for the publication Vendre on this matter: “The art of creating a window display fall both within a sharp sense of architecture and the skills of a stage director”.

    He finishes the piece on a more poetic note: “The picturesque streets of the older days with its curious boutiques are now gone forever. While the 19th century street was quite dull, a wind of change seems to be blowing in this new century: the shopkeeper transformed his front window into a magnificent and modern façade. Let’s turn the street into a cheerful space (…). By our daily renewed efforts let’s draw the passer-by, let’s give him a reason to dawdle, to stroll!”
