If you are visiting Paris this fall, make sure you mark this down as one of your must-visit places. Opening its doors to the public from 27 October 2014 is the Fondation Louis Vuitton, nestled in the Jardin d’Acclimatation west of central Paris. The Frank Gehry-designed building houses exhibition galleries dedicated to the permanent collection, temporary exhibitions and artists’ commissions. There will also be a flexible auditorium for the presentation of multi-disciplinary performances and events.
The building, designed to resemble a cloud of glass, offers unique panoramic views of Paris and the lush greenery of the Jardin d’Acclimatation. To celebrate its opening, the Fondation Louis Vuitton will present an exhibition showcasing the architectural project created by Frank Gehry for the foundation. The exhibition will be presented in dialogue with the first European retrospective of Frank Gehry’s work presented by the Centre Pompidou, from October 2014.
LVMH 董事長兼CEO Bernard Arnault近日宣佈設於巴黎的Foundation Louis Vuitton博物館，將於10月26日正式開幕。這間全新博物館位於巴黎邊界的Jardin d’Acclimatation，整體面積為126,000平方公尺，內裡將設有11個畫廊，並會展出 LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton的設計畫作。館中亦設有禮堂，空間寬敞，將能用作特別展覽或表演場地。博物館的首個展覽將以博物館的建造過程為主，展示日期直到2015年1月5日。

Kit Harington, best known for his role in Game of Thrones, is the face of the Jimmy Choo men’s Fall/Winter 2014 campaign, photographed by Peter Lindbergh in a modernist Los Angeles mansion designed by John Lautner.
“Kit was the perfect choice for the campaign — he has an innate confidence and projects a playfully rebellious nature,” explained Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo’s Creative Director. “He has an overtly masculine style that feels effortlessly cool and a great sense of humour, and beneath that intensity he is a true gentleman.”
Jérôme Dreyfuss, husband of French womenswear designer Isabel Marant, began his eponymous accessories line in 2002, after foraying in womenswear design — or what he called “couture a porter” — for several years. Dreyfuss’ debut bag collection, “Roots de Luxe,” set the tone for his trademark soft, leather bags. Each piece is designed in his Paris studio before undergoing a slow, environmentally friendly production process that supports artisanal methods of craftsmanship. Dreyfuss then aptly appropriates each of his creations a male name — such as Albert, Aldo, Bandit, Billy, Igor, Lucien or Momo — so women the world over can have fabulous humanized male shoulder companions.
