Louis Vuitton has been inspired by a number of fascinating women throughout the history of the House. Some have a long standing relationship with Louis Vuitton and others have inspired products or entire collections. One woman in particular, the Empress Eugènie, played a key role in the life of Louis Vuitton himself. Her aura, influence and passion for travel fuelled his worldwide fame and she became the house’s first and devoted ambassadress.
The exhibition ‘Timeless Muses’, which is hosted in the recently renovated Tokyo Station Hotel, allows visitors to discover not only Empress Eugènie but also five other fascinating women who are part of the Louis Vuitton story. Charlotte Perriand, Françoise Sagan, Catherine Deneuve, Kate Moss and Sofia Coppola all light up the world around them and possess an individual vision. Adventuresses, pioneers and conquerors of a world in motion, these six women are Louis Vuitton’s muses.
Open now to the public, the exhibition ‘Timeless Muses’ uses immersive digital technology to enable visitors to discover these six exceptional women.
