    Louis Vuitton presents an exploration of the colorful city of Havana in collaboration with artists.

    Highlighting the city's beautiful but forgotten areas, international artists unite as a form of recognition to Cuban Heritage and its cultural landscape.

    Various people come together to form symbols of this Third Paradise. Musicians merge at the Plaza de la Catedral as a performance piece while playing different percussion instruments. Circles symbolizing nature and artifice merge in this stand for rebirth.

    Buren's work is installed on the streets and in an abandoned train station. Anish Kapoor's video is projected inside an iconic cinema.
    "Third paradise" is the name of Pistoletto's artworks and performance.

    At the forefront of change, Louis Vuitton seeks to propose new views around travel and cultures across the globe. The House has continually contributed to move the frontiers of Fashion and Art by generating audacious projects and collaborating with visionaries.

    Among the Friends of the House who have contributed to generate images of our future, Louis Vuitton supports the following artists: Anish Kapoor, Daniel Buren, Michelango Pistoletto, Shilpa Gupta, Nikhil Chopra, José Yaque and local artist Carlos Garaicoa; all are represented by the Galleria Continua during the Biennale in Cuba.

    Between the idea and experience is a vast and varied space of possibilities, and in the hands of creators these unmanifest territories surface and embrace a diversity of identities that have yet to be seen.

    Discover Bob and Dolores Hope’s house in Palm Springs, California, the cradle of modernist American architecture in the 1950's and 1970's.

    A legend among Palm Springs estates, the house is famous for its major architectural interest, so characteristic of Desert Modernism. The estate was built to resemble a volcano, with three visor-like arches and an undulating concrete roof, a hole at its center opening a courtyard to the sky.

    “We were immediately taken with this construction. This estate demonstrates an approach that mirrors our own: it is creative above all. It symbolizes just as perfectly the harmonious union between the vision of Nicolas Ghesquière and the iconic spirit of the Maison Louis Vuitton” explains Michael Burke, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Louis Vuitton.

    For Nicolas Ghesquière, whose influences are rooted in design and architecture, the house is “a symbolic landmark that has inspired me ever since I first saw it. I am delighted to present my Cruise 16 collection in this remarkable setting.”
