Louis Vuitton Savoir Faire: Ateliers des Accessoires

A dream. An Icon. A masterpiece. Each Louis Vuitton product is the embodiment of uncompromising quality and exceptional craftsmanship. From the famous Monogram pattern to the astonishing Louis Vuitton diamond cut, the Maison enchants the world with its unique creations since 1854. Today, Louis Vuitton takes you to a journey through a world of luxury, inventiveness and excellence: the world of Louis Vuitton’s savoir-faire.

Seven crafts performed by hands outlined by daylight. They stitch the skin of a Speedy bag with beeswax-coated yarn, hollow a pea jacket at the waistcoat, sheath the trunk case of a Wardrobe with a creaser, smooth a shoe upper to perfection, scour the contours of a Craquantes jewel, coat the arms of a pair of glasses, file the bevels of a Tambour movement.

Gestures speak. Instrument confer. Words are silent. Passion is revealed. Bruno Aveillan brings his artist’s eye to the House’s know-how, passing it on in turn, in his own way.

A pair of glasses that will become as smooth as an acetate pebble… The specialized workshops are a den where everything is possible.

Made in its’ very own workshop, Louis Vuitton’s sunglasses incorporate not only glamour and sophistication but the most advanced technology in sunglass fabrication.
