The principle behind Les Journées Particulières remains unchanged: give a broad and diversified public a chance to “step inside” and discover what makes LVMH Maisons – some of them centuries old – so unique and exceptional. Innovative tours of each venue have been conceived by the host Maisons themselves. This fourth edition emphasizes experiences, interaction and surprises, as well as meetings between the public and LVMH artisans and creative talents.

The public will be welcomed around the world, from the West coast of the United States (Benefit Cosmetics, Sephora, Colgin, Newton, Chandon California), to New Zealand (Cloudy Bay), Argentina (Terrazas de los Andes), China (Sephora), Australia (Cape Mentelle), the Netherlands (Royal Van Lent / Feadship), Germany (RIMOWA), Poland (Belvedere), Spain (Loewe, Bodega Numenthia, Sephora) and the United Kingdom (Glenmorangie, Nicholas Kirkwood).

Many sites will also of course be open to the public in countries where LVMH has a long historical presence (France, Italy and Switzerland), offering visitors an opportunity to share memorable experiences at iconic places such as the Dior Couture ateliers, the Louis Vuitton family home in Asnières, the salons of Chaumet, Givenchy and Guerlain, Champagne estates (Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin, Ruinart, Krug, Moët & Chandon, Dom Pérignon, Mercier), Château d’Yquem, Château Cheval Blanc, Domaine des Lambrays, the Chai du Fondateur cellar at Hennessy in Cognac, the Berluti bespoke shoes workshop, the Fondation Louis Vuitton, FRED and Moynat historic stores, La Grande Epicerie de Paris and Le Bon Marché, the Jardin d’Acclimatation, Fendi’s Palazzo de la Civilta and the historic Bvlgari store in Rome, Palazzo Pucci and Pucci’s Villa de Granaiolo in Florence, T Fondaco dei Tedeschi in Venice, the Hublot watch manufacture in Geneva and the Zenith and TAG Heuer manufactures at Le Locle and Chaux-de-Fond in Switzerland.
