The art of travel according Vuitton and Hermès

Hey ... pssst

You’ve just arrived in Marseille and as you look out from your window in the Hotel Belle Vue, your gaze settles on the Old Port and Notre Dame de la Garde. Marseille has embodied an idea of Mediterranean travel for thousands of years. And this idea is also passionate about luxury brands. A brief overview of the most stylish travels on the planet with Vuitton et Hermès!

Vuitton: travel and literature

“Volez, voguez, voyagez” [“Fly, sail, travel”]. Vuitton ditched the slogan a long time ago, but still today each season provides an opportunity to visit some part of the globe, from day trips to a specific destination, with clothing borrowed from the fashions and textile traditions of diverse cultures that endow our wardrobes with restlessness, colour and style. In addition, since 1998 the brand has published fancy city guides, with Paris in royal blue, Tokyo in rosewood pink and New York in buttercup yellow. For Louis Vuitton, books and travel go hand in hand. The legendary brand has already launched a collection that invites you to discover the world in the footsteps of great writers. Voyager avec Virginia Woolf appeared in 1994, followed by Voyager avec Rainer Maria Rilke in 1995, and then Voyager avec Blaise Cendrars in 1996. Must-haves to slip into your …naturally, “monogrammed”…suitcase 🙂

Hermès: perfume and exhibitions!

Symbolising chic and sporty, Hermès has exploited the travel theme for many years, in particular, with the perfume Voyage created in 2010. It is also a recurring theme for the brand’s artistic director Pierre-Alexis Dumas, who last year chose to focus on the theme “the invitation to linger“, which resulted in an exhibition in London, and in Paris, and that you can now find in the book Dans l’œil du flâneur signed by Bruno Gaudichon and illustrated by Emmanuel Pierre, published by Actes Sud.
