Let us return to the intimacy and history of this famous French luxury house

In 1859, with a view to expansion, Louis Vuitton moved the nerve-center of his business from Paris to Asnières.

It was a strategic choice to facilitate supply and distribution, since the new workshop was built near the River Seine and just a stone’s throw from the first ever railway line to Paris.

Constructed in the style pioneered by Eiffel, the new building also housed the Vuitton family, who lived on the top floor, in order to remain as close as possible to day-to-day operations.

Over time, as orders flowed in, the workshop continually expanded, taking on its current form towards the end of the 19th century, when it was renovated in the Art Nouveau style by artisans from the Nancy School.
Some emblematic pieces are still realized today: trunks, models in rare and exotic leathers and special orders.

This exclusive visit will allow us to enter into the intimacy of this legendary House, to highlight the link with the workshops and to better perceive the Louis Vuitton universe.
