• LOUIS VUITTON REINFORCES ITS COMMITMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT

    - “Great design, sustainability and a great business do go hand in hand” - Michael Burke.

    As part of the 25th-anniversary celebration of LVMH’s commitment to the environment, Louis Vuitton CEO Michael Burke, referring to the Horizon luggage, showed that improving a product’s environmental performance will give House customers ever-greater pleasure in their product experience.

    Horizon luggage is the most eloquent testament to this fact. The ultra-light materials of its construction – the aluminium cane, 50%-finer canvas, composite body – make it lighter and sturdier than ever before and provide the traveller with remarkable comfort, in addition to reducing CO² impact by 20% during use.

    Beyond the highly technical patented parts, the use of local supplies, coupled with the entirely France-based assembly, limits transport requirements upstream and ensures both access to the savoir-faire required and respect for appropriate environmental practices (our workshops are ISO14001 certified).

    Lastly, Horizon’s design is what makes it so sturdy, promising the long-lasting use critical to reducing the environmental footprint: 70% of repairs to this luggage can be performed in a Louis Vuitton store within 48 hours, minimising transport and offering high-quality service: "Sustainability is actually the friend of designers."

    This new set of paintings relates to Koons’ connection to each of the artists. “They are part of my DNA,” Koons says. “When somebody walks down the street with this bag, or sits in a cafe with this bag,” Koons says of the Manet Neverfull, “it’s communicating a love of humanism.”
