Art and culture have always been intimately linked to the history of our Maisons, whose founders often include artists among their close friends, such as Christian Dior and Jean Cocteau or Christian Bérard, or Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn.
Art inspires the creation of our exceptional products thanks to a mastery of exquisite craftsmanship and the rare métiers that are an integral part of LVMH’s cultural assets.
These unique cultural assets contribute to the exceptional reputation of luxury products around the world. LVMH thus naturally plays a prominent role in initiatives that support art and culture in order to share our passion for creativity with the widest possible audience.
Our corporate philanthropy for the arts and culture spans diverse areas in France and other countries, such as the restoration of historic monuments, the acquisition of works to enrich the collections of leading museums, support for major national art exhibitions, or commissions of works by contemporary artists.
“Right from the creation of LVMH, I clearly established support for the arts and culture as a key component in our development. Our commitment embodies the values that all our Maisons share – savoir-faire, excellence and creativity – and anchors them in their artistic, cultural and social environment.” Bernard Arnault Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of LVMH.
