  • CITY BAGS: A NATURAL HISTORY

    The most recent illustrated book from Louis Vuitton ‘City Bags: A Natural History’ is unique, clever and playful.

    Adopting a semi-scientific approach to its most emblematic and iconic bags, Louis Vuitton presents the first comprehensive taxonomy of its city bags. Taking the typical categorisation of industrial design objects from last century, this book chronicles the development and evolution of the city bag by appropriating and mimicking the scientific classification of animals and plants. Speedy, Papillon, Alma, Lockit, Noé, Bucket, Neverfull and Pochette, these bags have become today indispensable for the ideal wardrobe. Descended from the four early specimens, The Steamer Bag, The Vanity Case, The Keepall and The Alzer Suitcase, the ancestry of the city bags is delineated in splendour.

    Available in French, English and Italian, this precious edition, published by Rizzoli NY, is exclusively available in Louis Vuitton stores.

  • L’AVENTURE POP UP STORE

    On September 12th, L’Aventure, a Louis Vuitton exclusive pop-up store located 22 avenue Montaigne in Paris, will open its door to the public until December 31st.

    "The Monogram must have been sent round every airport carousel in the world, and been through every cruise Terminal and train station. The legendary signature has adventure embedded in its core."
    Tyler Brulé

    Created in collaboration with multi-faceted editor Tyler Brulé, this unprecedented space will highlight Louis Vuitton’s expert authority on travel. To accompany globetrotters from the past to the present, wherever they may roam, this store will offer not only specific and exclusive products, but also a number of unique services. This include Personalisation (special orders, My Monogram service, painting or hot stamping), the Art of Packing (which calls to mind Louis Vuitton’s original profession as “clothes packer”), or repair and after-sales support by our expert craftsmen.

    From trunk beds destined for expeditions on the African continent to luggage designed to equip half-track vehicles across Asia, adventure is intrinsic to Louis Vuitton. The House pays tribute to this thirst for conquering the unknown and celebrates elegance on the move with luggage in the legendary Monogram canvas, travel accessories and looks for the modern traveller.

  • Taxi Encounters - Rio de Janeiro

    The fourth in a travel series about unique taxi experiences in the cities of the world.

    As a traveler, often our first impression of a city and its people is the journey from station or airport in a taxi. From the black cabs encircling the thoroughfares of London, to the taxi boats of Venice, not forgetting the iconic Tuk Tuks of Thailand, the unique taxis of different cities have become iconic and the journeys in them defining moments in our encounters with the cities they frequent.

    In the fourth part in Louis Vuitton’s travel series ‘Taxi Encounters’ we find ourselves in Rio de Janeiro, beneath the Corcovado and towering landscapes of this coastal paradise. Rio de Janeiro, meaning literally ‘January River’, is known throughout the world for its natural scenery, famous beaches such as Copacabana and Ipanema as well as Brazilian dance and music genres samba and bossa nova.
