    This new range of packaging named "Imperial Saffron" remains true to the house’s origins as a packer.

    This distinctive colour has been specially selected to create a new visual signature while it has woven itself into Louis Vuitton’s history since a century and a half. It can be seen on many iconic heritage pieces such as the trunk known as « Citroën » in the Louis Vuitton archives, created for an expedition in Africa launched by the French automobile firm in 1924.

    From now on, the Louis Vuitton packaging will feature this imperial saffron shade highlighted with blue, a complementary colour already used in early personalisation details from 1854 onwards but also for the House’s ribbons since many decades. The combination of the two colours gives a very modern yet eternal look that is reminiscent of the golden age of travel.

    While the thicker paper and cotton ribbon handles allow for greater resilience during transport, the new formats are easily folded and slipped into a suitcase or travel bag. Raw cotton and flat-pack boxes are part of a greater focus on sustainability on behalf of the House.

    Resource your bottle for long-lasting luxury

    Since its founding, Louis Vuitton has sought to create objects that last, articles that are passed down from generation to generation. Naturally, its perfume bottles, which are refillable, carry on this sustainable tradition.

    To have a bottle refilled, one needs to simply bring it to the nearest of the House’s boutiques. Each store maintains various perfume fountains, avant-garde tools developed specially for these bottles and exclusive to Louis Vuitton. In the space of a few seconds, the empty bottle is once again full, without ever having been opened, as if it were a sort of futuristic capsule. Not a drop of fragrance is lost. The perfume never comes in contact with the surrounding air, and so remains perfectly intact, identical to the original. The House’s bottles are thus an effective and innovative way of helping to preserve the environment. 

    They are also a way to pay homage to the Fontaines Parfumées, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud’s workshop in Grasse, in Provence, where perfume bottles were already being refilled at the source starting last century.

    In May 2016, the “Louis Vuitton Travel Book” collection adds South Africa to its destinations and revisits the Paris edition.

    It is now Brecht Evens’ turn, a young and talented author of graphic novels, to offer a fresh look at the city of Paris. While the painter Liu Xiaodong expresses his real experience of South Africa.

    Each artist explores a country previously unknown to them. They confront an unfamiliar place with a viewpoint sharpened by the surprise of the unknown or stimulated by the pleasure of rediscovery.

    Going beyond the pictorial vocation of these travel journals, the collection highlights the rich aesthetic horizons of today’s art. During their travels, these artists from various corners of the world were free to choose their modes of expression and communicate their views of other places through drawing, painting, collage, contemporary art, illustration, cartoons or manga.

    For each new title, a limited edition of 30 copies numbered and signed by the artist will be available in selected Louis Vuitton stores. View the entire collection including the two new destinations here.
