• COSTA MESA SOUTH COAST PLAZA STORE OPENING

    On July 11th, 2018, Louis Vuitton reopens its newly expanded Flagship Store

    The new store is defined as a travel destination, located at 3333 Bristol Street, fully renovated and redesigned by Peter Marino and features the first in-store atelier in the United States. Balancing old and new, Marino utilizes techniques and materials that reference the French history and craftsmanship of Louis Vuitton, while carefully integrating ultra-modern designs into the California store such as the twisting high tech carbon fiber shelving throughout which references the horizontal speed of travel.

    Costa Mesa South Coast Plaza will offer a vast assortment of exclusive product available only at this location. Highlights include a metallic leopard print Petite Malle and Capucines mini, a crocodile version of the Christopher backpack, the Women’s Star Trail Monogram Ankle Boot with patches, the Men’s Trocadero Richelieu sneaker in a variety of Epi leathers and rabbit fur Wilderness blankets and pillows. From the ready-to-wear métier, exclusive versions of the Women’s skater dress and Men’s Split Hand LV print sweater and satin Warm Up shirt have been created just for Costa Mesa South Coast Plaza. To celebrate the opening, Louis Vuitton’s Diamond Blossom XL fine jewelry medallion will prelaunch at the store ahead of the worldwide launch.

    The House has taken over the floor above the store for the first ever in-store workshop and resident artisan studio in the United States, creating the ultimate savoir-faire experience. Guests will be able to watch Louis Vuitton’s top artisans handcraft and restore pieces on-site in this authentic atelier. Costa Mesa South Coast Plaza’s main floor will feature a full time hand-painter who will be personalizing hard-sided travel pieces with custom motifs. More than just a means of identification, personalization sets a truly individual seal on an item, and epitomizes exclusivity and savoir-faire.

  • LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK "PRAGUE"

    For Pavel Pepperstein, Prague is a place of sentimental value with an almost protective character.

    He arrived there from his native Russia at the age of fourteen and was “immediately struck by the beauty and mystery of this incredible city”, at that time less sophisticated and less of a tourist destination. The dilapidated state of certain deserted neighborhoods served to reinforce the city’s enigmatic nature. “I have never since felt the force of that kind of presence, and never had such a strong sense of the essence of Europe anywhere else.” Pavel Pepperstein praises the city’s different neighborhoods, such as the very popular St. Vitus Cathedral, and is equally enthusiastic about the dilapidated areas and semi-abandoned factories at the end of the tram lines.

    Pavel Pepperstein is a multi-disciplinary artist, while drawing remains his core medium and raw material, he is also an author, theorist and musician. Ever observant and critical of the society he inhabits, in 2009 Pavel Pepperstein was chosen to represent Russia at the Venice Biennale.

  • LOUIS VUITTON TRAVEL BOOK "ROUTE 66"

    In this Travel Book, the comic-book artist Thomas Ott, describes Route 66's fall, as is his won't. The end of the journey cannot be a happy ending, only a culdesac, a dead end.

    No one but Thomas Ott, a true film fanatic nourished on comic books and novels, could rush with such fervor to the legendary US Route 66. From Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica, California, he traveled nearly 4,500 kilometers over a period of three weeks.

    “Route 66 is a forgotten world. No one uses it. The landscapes are bare. The towns are in ruins. The streets are empty and silent. These are ghost towns, frozen in the past. I illustrate this lost America along the road.”

    As the horizon stretches out, the traveler becomes intoxicated with movement, space and freedom.

    Thomas Ott, born in 1966 in Zurich, is one of the rare comic-book artists to work in black and white, a powerful choice he made over thirty years ago. With infinite patience, he scrapes away at the India ink-coated surface of scratch-boards with a utility knife, his hatch marks uncovering the white underneath to create the sharp contours of a world that belongs to him alone.
