    After the success of the past three editions, the Journées Particulières reopened the doors to Louis Vuitton's ateliers last week-end, on October 12th, 13th and 14th, 2018.

    The driving theme behind the Journées Particulières was to enable more visitors to discover the inner workings of our, often secular, continually innovative Houses which form part of our heritage. The 4th edition focused on experiences, interaction and encounters. Each venue offered a unique and original tour, designed by the host House.

    In addition to the Louis Vuitton Workshops in Asnières, France, and Fiesso d'Artico in Veneto, Italy, two new locations were opened to the public this year: Les Fontaines Parfumées in Grasse, South of France, and the Louis Vuitton Ducey Workshop, in Normandy, France.

    Photographs in order of appearance: Les Fontaines Parfumées (x3), Fiesso d'Artico (x2), Asnières (x2), and Ducey Workshop (x1).

  • SAVOIR-FAIRE FOR THE CUSTOM "THE MILKMAID" TRUNK

    Learn about the special-order trunk created to protect Vermeer's "The Milkmaid" on its voyage from Amsterdam to Tokyo.

    In 1924, Louis Vuitton made a trunk for the French gallerist René Gimpel, enabling him to travel worldwide and present works of art to his clients. Since then, the Maison has been entrusted by clients around the world to transport their art and supplies, creating cases that protect and transport their belongings in the most optimal conditions. In continuing with this heritage, the Rijksmuseum entrusted Louis Vuitton to create a special-order trunk to transport the masterpiece The Milkmaid by Johannes Vermeer during its voyage from Amsterdam to Japan.

    The trunk, handcrafted in Louis Vuitton’s historic workshops in Asnières, France, has been meticulously produced to house the painting. Adorned in the iconic Monogram canvas and the signature brass corners and lock, the trunk features personalized hand-painted stripes along with a yellow-coloured interior evoking the main colors of the masterpiece.

    Louis Vuitton created a special-order trunk to transport "The Milkmaid" by Vermeer from Amsterdam to Tokyo.

    Since its founding, Louis Vuitton has been the master-packer for some of the most precious objects in the world. This year, true to its passion for creation and strong support of the arts, the Maison has teamed up with the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam to transport one of the museum's most important pieces: Johannes Vermeer’s "The Milkmaid". On the occasion of the exhibition “Making the Difference: Vermeer and Dutch Art” at the Ueno Royal Museum in Tokyo, the world renowned masterpiece travelled in a bespoke Louis Vuitton trunk from its home in the Netherlands to Japan.

    The Milkmaid, sometimes called The Kitchen Maid, is an oil-on-canvas painting of a “milkmaid“ or maidservant pouring milk, entirely absorbed in her work. Except for the stream of milk, everything else is still. Vermeer took this simple everyday activity and made it the subject of an impressive painting – the woman stands like a statue in the brightly lit room. Johannes Vermeer’s paintings are considered among some of the most precious artworks in the world, and are kept in the world’s finest museums. Being entrusted with the masterpiece's safe transport across the world is an honor and testament of Louis Vuitton's heritage of quality craftmanship.
