Secret Places

How lucky is Susie, of Style Bubble, to have been one of the few people invited to visit Louis Vuitton‘s original workshop in the Parisian suburb of Asnières? From 1859 to 1977, the Asnières workshop was Vuitton’s sole production facility and two adjacent homes were where generations of the Vuitton family resided. So fascinating, right?! In addition to all the luxurious vintage trunks, I’m smitten with the gorgeous Art Nouveau details, from one of my favorite periods in decorative art and history. Be sure to check out the rest of Susie’s tour and a peek inside the atelier as it functions today.
