Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce the worldwide debut of the Sneaker Trunk which will be unveiled at Atelier Louis Vuitton on December 3rd in Miami to coincide with Design Miami/. 

Combining Louis Vuitton’s classic art of trunk craftmanship with contemporary design, Louis Vuitton’s Sneaker Trunk is the newest addition to the House’s iconic hard-sided collection. Making its worldwide debut in Miami, this one-of-a-kind Sneaker Trunk is an emblem of Louis Vuitton’s visionary spirit and heritage craftsmanship. 

Designed to display your favorite sneakers, the trunk’s contemporary features allow passionate collectors to build the sneaker dressing of their dreams. The Sneaker Trunk has been developed to fit at least 6 pairs of low-tops and 8 pairs of high-top sneakers and each drawer is measured to store up to size 13 in low-tops and 12 in high-tops. As is customary at Louis Vuitton, the trunk is fully customizable and we are able to personalize to each and every client, creating a one-of-a-kind collaboration. 

LOUIS VUITTON SNEAKER BOX

Louis Vuitton is pleased to announce that the Sneaker Box will also be available at Atelier Louis Vuitton on December 3rd in Miami during Design Miami/ along with the Sneaker Trunk. A modern and contemporary trunk, that highlights Louis Vuitton’s visionary spirit. The Monogram Eclipse signature gives a masculine touch to the historical signatures of the House’s trunk knowhow.

The traditional Monogram signature is reinterpreted on a screen-printed transparent Perspex door. Designed to display your favorite pairs of sneakers, the trunk has complementary features that will allow the client to build up the sneakers dressing of his dreams.

The client can create his own sneakers dressing by piling up the Sneakers Boxes. There’s a multitude of options, from a vertical pile to a whole wall.  Even if the top lid is closed, the transparent door is still openable. Even when one Sneakers Box is under another, the client can still reach his sneakers.

Under the slope, two hidden drawers can host a shoe care equipment and other accessories. Thanks to a magnetic system, the slope stays lifted in the position of the lid.

Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades will be on show at Design Miami/ from December 4th to 8th, 2019 as well as the Louis Vuitton Miami Design District store throughout next year. 

Atelier Louis Vuitton, the exclusive savoir-faire exhibition, will be held at Paradise Plaza – 151 NE 41st Street, Miami Fl 33137 from December 3rd to 8th, 2019.  Visits by appointment only. 

LOEWE FOUNDATION

CHANCE ENCOUNTERS V 

3 DECEMBER – 31 JANUARY 

For Art Basel Miami Beach 2019, the LOEWE FOUNDATION will present the fifth exhibition in its Chance Encounters series, bringing together artists from various disciplines in unexpected conversations. This year British artist Hilary Lloyd will present a major site-specific textile, sound and video installation that will engage in dialogue with the monumental 18th-century Portuguese granary permanently installed. Large-scale ceramic sculptures by Ewen Henderson will also occupy the space.
 
‘The Chance Encounters exhibitions are an opportunity to create conversations across time, between artists whose work resonates strongly with my own creative approach’ says Jonathan Anderson, Creative Director of LOEWE. ‘Hilary Lloyd’s work is perfectly attuned to the contemporary moment and the way in which we engage with the visual world around us. It will stage a striking dialogue with Ewen Henderson’s bold materially-rich work.’
 
Hilary Lloyd (b. 1964, Halifax, UK) lives and works in London. For almost 30 years Lloyd has been working with film and video within sculptural installations. The idiosyncratic way in which her films are shot — making use of repetitive movements, jump cuts and sweeps — which often verge on the abstract, conjure both her own restless gaze and the experience of increasing speed that characterizes the way in which we consume images today. In recent years the technological apparatus foregrounded as part of her installations, block monitors and screens, have been accompanied by scatter-like installations incorporating curtains, frames and other set-like objects, that play with the idea of the space around the films being activated by the viewer. These installations reveal her interests in architecture, fashion, textiles and digital space.
 
For the exhibition, Lloyd will transform LOEWE’s Miami store through interventions of colour and textiles. Monitors will be presented throughout the space, on which she will present a new series of films shot in and around her studio in the Thamesmead area of London where her studio is located.
 
In and amongst Lloyd’s installation will be several large-scale ceramic sculptures by Ewen Henderson (1934 – 2000) – one of Britain’s most esteemed artists working with clay. Henderson studied under Hans Coper and Lucie Rie at the Camberwell School of Art in 1968 and was part of an illustrious generation of potters alongside Gordon Baldwin, Gillian Lowndes and Ian Godfrey, who explored a new sculptural language for ceramics. While often working with vessel forms and frequently creating vases and tea bowls, Henderson’s commitment to hand-building allowed him to freely manipulate the clay, often pushing his forms towards complete abstraction. Inspired by the material nature of clay itself, Henderson was interested in exploring ideas of the elemental and geological; his use of roughly-textured surfaces and layered colour often resembles the stratified nature of rock or earth. His totemic works which will be presented as part of the exhibition also evidence his interest in neolithic and ancient art, embracing the timeless quality of clay as one of the fundamental materials used by humankind.

The new Tambour Horizon is a unique connected experience that fully encompasses Louis Vuitton’s spirit of travel, craftsmanship and creative values. Building on the success of previous models, this Tambour Horizon collection boasts a new element of design, new materials and new colours, taking user experience, functions and technical innovation further than ever before.

New exclusive options allow you to personalise the dial with your chosen watch face. In the spirit of connected technology, time display is essentially digital. The digital mode is embellished with emblematic motifs – Monogram, Damier, or even with the V for Gaston-Louis Vuitton. These have all been entirely reworked, deconstructed, and broken down to create transparent effects and contrasts with the Monogram Flowers. The new colour palette, the contrasting bands and the option of adding your initials mean that an almost infinite number of aesthetic combinations are possible all in the image of the House. Special watch faces have been added to the existing collection, featuring the same strong design aesthetic typical of a Louis Vuitton runway show.

Embodying Louis Vuitton’s art of travel, the Tambour Horizon watch enriches the “My Travel” experience by grouping all of your travel information together in one place.

Across the rim, a new 24-hour ring with day/night indicator, visible even when the watch is in ambient mode, lets you view all your data at a glance. With its own watch face, the “Agenda” function separates meeting times from free time with distinctive coloured segments.

The “Step counter” function lets travellers who like to visit cities on foot record the distance treked and the most intensive periods of movement. Again, the watch face has a detailed design with the LV Archlight, the iconic Louis Vuitton sneaker, pictured at the centre.

The “Pollution” function displays the air quality index on the watch face in real time. Air quality projections are displayed in coloured segments. Weather and temperature forecasts put the finishing touches to the Tambour Horizon’s functions.

While the unisex case retains the emblematic Tambour Horizon shape and inverted curved case, the watch is now available in polished white ceramic. The use of this material in craftsmanship smart watchmaking is a true feat of technical excellence. In addition to new versions in polished steel, matte black PVD, white ceramic and white ceramic with gem-set horns, there is also a matte brown PVD model. This colour has been an integral part of Louis Vuitton’s aesthetic since 1854, used most prominently in the emblematic Monogram design.

Complementing Louis Vuitton’s style and expressing the concept of personalisation, interchangeable straps are available in new versions with unique patterns, colours and materials.

Making the Tambour Horizon watch even more intuitive, the various functions are now accessed quickly and easily with a rotating crown that can be turned with a single finger.
