For nomads moving from city to city or for the armchair traveller, the Louis Vui on City Guide has produced a special limited edition box set.

Available exclusively in Louis Vuitton stores.

Independent Contributors all Keen Observers
This new collection of guides for the world’s most exciting cities would not have been possible were it not for our excellent team of 50 contributors, supported by unrivalled editors, translators, copy editors, editorial assistants, production experts and many other professionals. Expert wordsmiths and seasoned communicators are behind every guide in the collection.

To capture the heart and spirit of each city, Louis Vuitton reaches out to journalists, writers, major figures in the world of arts and letters, many of whom divide their time between two cities and whose work often appears in the most prestigious newspapers and magazines. Several authors often collaborate on one city, as is the case for Bangkok, Chicago, Paris, Prague, Singapore, Istanbul, Milan and Shanghai. Their contributions, joined with those of artists, businesspeople, creative geniuses of various stripes, all backed by the authority and experience of Louis Vuitton, make each City Guide a publication like no other – original, offbeat and invaluable. Bursting with curiosity, cosmopolitan, irreverent, playful and literary, each guide reflects the personalities of its contributors.

All of them are astute observers of life and wear their vast cultural knowledge with ease and elegance. They have the rare gift of being able to appreciate both the frivolous and the essential, seeking out what is truly magnificent in the many little pleasures each city has to offer.

A Personal View of the City from a Special Guest

Each Louis Vuitton City Guide includes the participation of a special guest contributor, who all speak from personal experience of their home cities. Local celebrities or insiders, they take the reader on a personal exploration of their city, along the way sharing tips on their favorite spots: a first person singular initiation to the city. At various points throughout the guides and at the end of each chapter, these guest contributors open their personal address books and divulge several secret preferred haunts.

For example, Prince M.L. Poomchai Chumbala suggests some of the elegant highlights to discover in Bangkok, while the film director Ivan Zachariáš takes the reader for a stroll around his favorite parts of central Prague. Catherine Colonna, French ambassador to Rome, paints a highly personal picture of the Eternal City and Naomi Beckwith, a curator at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, creates a fascinating portrait of her city. Plus there is the very talented interior designer Faye Toogood in London, the great director Takeshi Kitano in Tokyo, the actor Guillaume Gallienne and his wife Amandine in Paris. Some singular new voices offering an entertaining and unexpected look at the cities they love.

Noted Photographers Capture Views of Each City Exclusively for Louis Vuitton

The Louis Vuitton on City Guides have always placed special emphasis on the finely crafed contributions of their authors, supporting them in their quest to find just the right words and an appropriately elegant style to reveal the soul of each city. Without departing in any way from this philosophy, the City Guides now include photographic contributions to o er their readers an additional perspective, not merely to illustrate the text.

The photography collective Tendance Floue has produced a new series of images for the City Guides and some exclusive photographs for the Louis Vui on City Guide App which are proposed
in the Scenic Route chapter. The collective’s photographers sensitively capture the charms and distinctive allure of destination in original ways.

Founded in 1991, Tendance Floue, a collective of thirteen photographers sees itself as a laboratory, exploring the world and working together to open up new horizons and diversify approaches in contemporary photography. Apart from the personal aspect of their work, Tendance Floue’s members have all taken on the shared goal of contributing to a wider photographic mission. By joining, combining, comparing and contrasting their images, they move their work beyond the limits of individual creation to something entirely new. Tendance Floue looks behind every door, experiments with all techniques and processes used in contemporary photography, without taboos.

Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2015 Series 3 Ad Campaign

Louis Vuitton News

“Series 3” continues the visual exploration begun by Nicolas Ghesquière.

This third campaign brings together the photographic perspectives of Juergen Teller and Bruce Weber for the Fall/Winter 2015-2016 collection.

Together they focus closely on the diverse range of women that Nicolas Ghesquière has chosen to define the Louis Vuitton ideal. Actresses, established models and new faces, representing diverse ages and different nationalities, who speak equally to him.

Juergen Teller shot Alicia Vikander, Jennifer Connelly, Liya Kebede, Fernanda Ly and Angel Rutledge near Barcelona at a sculptor’s utopian home which was built over a lifetime. The location reflects Nicolas’ passionate interest in modernist architecture.

Bruce Weber shot Freja Beha, Rianne van Rompaey and Julia Merkelbach at an old airfield on black and white film. The suggestion of travel and abstract graphics creates a cinematic narrative.

1 / 9

Upon the release of this new campaign, Louis Vuitton is proud to announce that Swedish actress Alicia Vikander is the Maison’s new muse. In this role, she joins the Maison’s two other heroines, Jennifer Connelly and Michelle Williams.

At the age of 26, Alicia has already worked with some of cinema’s leading filmmakers and actors, having starred opposite Jude Law in Anna Karenina, then Mads Mikkelsen in the Academy Award- nominated A Royal Affair, she will feature in no less than eight movies in 2015, including the US cult hit Ex Machina, Guy Ritchie’s next film The Man From U.N.C.L.E. with Henry Cavill, The Danish Girl opposite Eddie Redmayne, Tulip Fever opposite Christoph Waltz and Judie Dench, and The Light Between Oceans opposite Michael Fassbender and directed by Derek Cianfrance.

The advertising campaign for the Fall/Winter 2015-2016 collection will debut in the August issue of fashion magazines worldwide and will be accompanied by two videos also shot by the photographers. These videos will be available online and on the Louis Vuitton Pass.

Louis Vuitton’s Objets Nomades collection is a range of uniquely “foldable” and travel-ready furniture and accessories.

Louis_Vuitton_Miami1_Objet_Nomade_1-800x449
Among these coveted items is a new design by Marcel Wanders; a Lounge Chair which Wanders calls “an unfolding and portable oasis for relaxation. The three individual modules fit into each other like a puzzle, yet when laid out create three distinct solutions – a chaise longue, armchair or pouffe.”

The three sections of the chair can be placed one inside the other for travelling or be strapped together to make a stylish seat. The chair is available in tan and turquoise leather with the latter being inspired by the architecture of Miami.

Once known for little more than simple but elegant travelling trunks, Louis Vuitton has come a long way. However the brand has never forgotten its roots and we see new iterations of the classic that put this brand on the map. Celebrating this legacy is exactly what the brand continues to do in their exhibition titled “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton.”

Housed at Paris’ Grand Palais, the exhibition is a visual history documenting over 160 years of LV’s history. Curated by Olivier Saillard, the exhibit is comprised of nine chapters created by Robert Carsen and begins in 1906 with an antique malle. Chapter 1 also includes objects and documents borrowed from the Palais Galliera and the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris. A later chapter willexplore the role of travel and lay emphasis on transportation like steamer trains, yachts and cars. Fine writing, fashion and beauty, art and special orders will also form part of the exhibition.

Throughout the exhibition, visitors will see how older designs and models have inspired modern LV creations.

“Louis Vuitton has always been at the avant-garde of creation,” said Michael Burke, CEO of Louis Vuitton, “More than a century after, if Louis Vuitton remains at the helm of fashion, it’s because we continuously inspire ourselves from the past while anticipating trends of our times. For this exhibition, Olivier Saillard has immersed himself in the archives of our Maison to decode its secrets. He delivers a fresh vision of our past, present and future.”

The classic House trunk from the 1800s has been zapped into a smaller, more compact version in the form of the Petite Malle Bag. We don’t blame Nicolas Ghesquière for being so upfront about his love for the brand’s classic pieces (and his desire to have them recreated). And in this collection, there’s an array of designs and canvasses (and skins, and…) to choose from! Timeless, indeed. Do you have a favorite among these pieces?
