Asnières: The Home of Vuitton
12/01/2012 § 1 Comment
Home to Louis Vuitton and his family between 1880 and the 1970s, the house at Asnières is also the first and historical workshop of Louis Vuitton. At present, all the “rare and exceptional” Louis Vuitton products from the Leather Goods collections are made in Asnières, as well as all special orders. Located just outside of Paris, Asnières is also a “secret” museum of over 150 years of Louis Vuitton heritage not officially open to the public. However, I am told that if you ring them and ask very nicely, they might allow you to schedule an appointment for a tour. This gorgeous home and museum is at the top of my list of things to do when next I am in Paris, bien sûr.
