Louis Vuitton presents « Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton » au Grand Palais

To mark the opening night of « Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton » Exhibition at the Grand Paris, Bernard Arnault, Chief Executive of the LVMH Moet Hennessy - Louis Vuitton, and Michael Burke, Chief Executive Officer of Louis Vuitton, greeted Mr. Emmanuel Macron, Minister for the economy, industry and digital affairs. 

Public figures from the art world such as Daniel Buren, Bertrand Lavier, Christian de Portzamparc, Xavier Veilhan, Olafur Eliasson, Jean Michel Othoniel, Gautier Capucon, Laurent Grasson, Fabrice Hyber, Laurent Korica and Kader Attia were at their sides to witness the vibrancy of French culture and to celebrate its bright and creative  spirit. This gathering was a statement to support the freedom of creation and the French art-de-vivre.

Curated by Olivier Saillard, « Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton » retraces Louis Vuitton's story from 1854 to our present day, through portraits of both of its founders and those who are today creating the Louis Vuitton of tomorrow. Articulated around nine chapters and a thematic path conceived and brought to life by Robert Carsen, the exhibition presents objects and documents from both Louis Vuitton and the Palais Galliera, Musee de la Mode de la Ville de Paris' archives, as well as unprecedented loans from private institutions and personal collections, particularly Gustave Courbets's Le Chêne de Flagey which will be displayed for the first time in Paris since its installation at the Courbet museum in 2013.  

Adidas Originals presents NMD - The Past Empowers The Future

Driven by a desire to experience. Inspired by the past but always looking to the future. When constantly on the move, objects bring meaning to a high-paced life. The adidas Originals NMD joins this selection.
Designed for a nomadic lifestyle without boundaries, the NMD fuses iconic adidas Originals DNA with breakthrough technology from today. Micro-engineered BOOST and Primeknit fabrications meet a bold visual language that pays homage to innovation moments from the brand’s collective memory. The result is a fearless new silhouette driven by adidas’ pioneering archive that defines the shape and style of today.
Referencing progressive adidas styles like the Micro Pacer, the Rising Star, and the Boston Super, the NMD gives archival elements a modern context — jolting the iconography surrounding adidas’ most celebrated products and merging them with unparalleled 2016 engineering.
A technical runner realized as a lifestyle sneaker, the NMD is born from an audacious combination of shapes, angles, and materials on an iconic color-blocked foundation. Designed without compromise, a modern upper construction, an exaggerated silhouette, and bold archival details comprise the dynamic concept. The NMD’s midsole is elevated with adidas BOOST technology, in which blown EVA pellets are compressed to create a durable, shock-resistant, responsive sole. Its upper, meanwhile, utilizes the integrity of adidas Primeknit, boasting new levels of flexibility, stability, and strength.
“Adidas is a pioneering brand—that is the principle we were built on,” says Nic Galway, adidas Originals VP of Global Design. “Our archive features the best technology of its time and continues to empower us. It’s not a museum. It’s a tool. It’s a reference.” NMD ­– the past empowers the future.
The launch NMD is available globally for $220 CAD, at adidas Originals stores, select retailers and via adidas.ca/NMD from December 12th.
