Louis Vuitton opened a specially curated savoir-faire studio on Shelter Island on July 28th, dedicated to the Maison’s most exclusive collections. The presentation focused on offerings that spotlight the Maison’s legendary heritage and craftsmanship, including exotic creations, Objets Nomades furniture and decor, specialty hard-sided and trunk pieces, made-to-order pieces, and fine watches and jewelry. The highly curated selection will be on view by appointment only at an exceptional private residence through August 7th. In celebration of this new space, Louis Vuitton hosted an exclusive sunset party at Le Bilboquet in Sag Harbor on the 28th.
The studio continues Louis Vuitton’s global tradition of showcasing the Maison’s savoir-faire and craftsmanship in notable global spaces. Recent presentations in the US have taken place in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Miami. Housed in a remarkable modernist residence, highlights from the latest presentation include signature Louis Vuitton bags like Capucines, Petite Malles and Twists in rare variations with exotic leathers and finishes. Iconic hard-sided trunks and heritage pieces will be available, including the new Secretaire Bureau 2.0, a mobile workstation that pays homage to the Maison’s classic Secretaire Stokowski, created in the early 20th century for train travel. Sumptuous jewelry and watches will be on exhibit, including Tambour watches, a style celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. A complete suite of Objets Nomades, Louis Vuitton’s furniture and décor collection created as a collaboration between the Maison’s expert artisans and world-renowned designers, will be on view throughout the studio including pieces designed by the Campana Brothers, India Madhavi, Marcel Wanders Studio and Raw Edges.
