A private dinner party held at the family house of Louis Vuitton
In the suburbs of Paris, in a place called Asnières, there is a quiet street called Rue Louis Vuitton – and there, in the depths of a beautiful garden, stands the mansion that once belonged to the Vuitton family. Today, the house welcomes VIP guests and its second floor is a museum dedicated to the brand, where invitees can witness the most interesting pieces on display.
For example there is the famous chest-bed, that once belonged to Count Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, and in a nearby building they still create trunks and leather goods by hand.
The interior of the mansion upholds the best traditions of French Art Nouveau. Everything inside – including furniture and table finishing dishes – is left exactly the way it was when the son of the founder of the brand, Georges Vuitton left.
On the ground floor is a living room decorated with incredible beauty – stained glass with floral ornaments line the walls decorated with lilies, roses and irises. It was there, at the big table, that a selection of handpicked guests gathered for a dinner party recently, among whom were the Editor of Russian Hello! magazine Svetlana Bondarchuk, plus Evelina Khromtchenko, Nadezhda Mikhalkov and Ekaterina Mukhina, TV personality Ksenia Sobchak, each invited to become acquainted with the history of the fashion house. The hosts of the evening were Buro 24/7 Founder Miroslava Duma and Roberto Eggs, President of Louis Vuitton Europe, Middle East and Africa, as well as Margaret Zimmerman, keeper of the historical family home.
