The Capucines

An homage to Louis Vuitton’s first store, opened in 1854 on Rue Neuve-des-Capucines in Paris, the Capucines exemplifies the artisanal savoir-faire of this historic area. Unveiled in an array of colour and sizes, the model, worn in multiple ways, epitomises timeless elegance.

Exclusively available in Louis Vuitton stores.


      Transcending the limits of leather goods, the Capucines is a totem of ingenuity and unparalleled savoir-faire. Behind the apparent simplicity of its design lies a complex creative process and extensive skill: each bag is assembled in 250 steps by the Maison’s most experienced artisans.

      Louis Vuitton x Frank Gehry

      In collaboration with renowned architect Frank Gehry, Louis Vuitton presents an exclusive capsule collection, comprised of reinvented Capucines bags and distinctive new creations. Combining visionary design with the Maison’s savoir-faire, Louis Vuitton x Frank Gehry is unveiled at Art Basel Miami, alongside a retrospective of his prior collaborative pieces.


      The Capucines’ timeless silhouette provides an ideal emblem for the artistic Artycapucines collaboration: an invitation for celebrated artists to imbue the iconic model with their creative visions as a testament to Louis Vuitton’s pursuit of innovation and excellence.
