Inside the Exclusive World of Louis Vuitton With New Podcast Series
Luxury powerhouse Louis Vuitton is inviting fans into its rarefied world like never before with the launch of its new podcast. Titled ‘Louis Vuitton Extended,’ the series offers unprecedented access into the storied French maison through intimate conversations with its creative talents and collaborators.
Hosted by renowned French fashion journalist Loïc Prigent, episodes release bimonthly and delve into the legendary house’s past, present and future. From sitting with designers mid-collection to discussing new store openings, the podcast peels back the curtain on LV’s inner workings.
The first episode spotlights creative firecracker Pharrell Williams on his history-making debut as Louis Vuitton’s menswear designer. His blockbuster June show in Paris attracted A-list front row guests like power couple Beyoncé and JAY-Z.
Williams pulls back the veil on his creative process for the collection, from broad conceptual inspirations to artisanal details like feather hats. He explains the bold choice of using a gospel choir for the show’s soundtrack as “the greatest way to express…the universe had the sun shining on me.”
True to Louis Vuitton’s spirit of boundary-pushing innovation, the podcast represents a new frontier for the label. According to LV, forthcoming episodes will vary in length between 20 to 40 minutes. The content ranges from the label’s newest initiatives to its legacy as a malletier since 1854.
Fashion legends past and present are sure to grace the podcast, adding their unique voices to the narrative. Along with today’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, icons who have shaped LV’s journey will reflect on their time with the house.
Beyond insider stories from the atelier, Prigent will speak with Louis Vuitton’s vast constellation of collaborators. Episodes highlight partners across art, architecture and cuisine who have come together with LV in creative harmony.
The podcast provides a 360-degree view of Louis Vuitton as both a heritage brand and cultural force. Listeners gain appreciation for the immense artistry and history underlying each garment and leather good.
Even more thrilling, the podcast offers a real-time ticket to LV’s next chapter. We can expect to hear about newly unveiled collections as models walk the runway along with other headline-making happenings.
While productions like the recent Apple TV+ docuseries have aimed to capture the universe of Louis Vuitton, this podcast goes even deeper. Unscripted and uncensored conversations lay bare the souls behind the brand in an authentic, intangible way visuals cannot.
The genius of ‘Louis Vuitton Extended’ is how it interweaves past legends and future visionaries under one roof. These juxtapositions reinforce how LV maintains avant-garde energy across eras.
For true fashion fanatics, the podcast is the ultimate front row seat to the House of Vuitton. It peels back the polished facade to reveal the beating creative heart within Louis Vuitton’s perfectly constructed exterior.
Through unguarded discussions from those shaping its future, we better understand LV’s essence: daring innovation grounded in artistic integrity. So pull up a seat next to Loïc Prigent and dive into the glamorous, storied universe of Louis Vuitton like never before. ‘Louis Vuitton Extended’ promises an unparalleled listening experience only matched by the maison’s unmatched legacy.
