LVMH Holds Start-Up Style Event for Employees

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT: Out to encourage its staff to think like entrepreneurs, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton this weekend staged the inaugural edition of its internal start-up style initiative DARE LVMH, short for Disrupt, Act, Risk to be an Entrepreneur.
The three-day event gathered 60 LVMH employees from across 40 of the group’s houses and based in 15 countries to develop pitches in a WeWork co-working space in the city’s center. They were whittled down from 500 candidatures sent in after a “call for ideas” made by the group to 4,000 of its collaborators.
Each of the 60 talents selected had to present their pitches on Friday. They were then split into 12 teams to develop the ideas that got the top votes from a jury comprised of independent consultants and LVMH executives, including the luxury group’s managing director, Antonio Belloni, and human resources director, Chantal Gaemperle. Each team was joined by an independent coach or mentor from the executive ranks of a range of LVMH houses. Also joining the teams were 20 interns and students from the group’s partnering schools.
Following a final pitching session, three teams were selected by the jury and will be mentored by members of the group’s executive committee to help

LVMH Métiers d’Art Taps Amandine Guruceaga for Residency

PARIS – LVMH Métiers d’Art, the luxury group’s structure for cultivating fine artistry and innovating new craft techniques, has selected the French artist and sculptor Amandine Guruceaga for the second edition of its artist-in-residency program.
Guruceaga will spend five months working with the artisans of the Riba Guixà heritage tannery near Barcelona. Founded in 1932, it is known for its work with colored sheepskins as well as for its broad palette — the house offers more than 22,000 shades of leather.
The 27-year-old Guruceaga is based in Marseille, where she graduated from the Ecole Supérieure d’Art et de Design in 2013. Her colorful works often mix steel, resin and bright fabrics. They have most recently been displayed at the Mains d’Oeuvres gallery in Saint-Ouen and La Friche la Belle de Mai in Marseille.
“This is a unique opportunity to work with leather, one of humanity’s oldest materials, made beautiful by the infinite palette of the Riba Guixà tannery,” Guruceaga said.
Her works for the residency will published in a book by fine art publisher RVB.
This is the second residency sponsored by LVMH Métiers d’Art. Last year, the company collaborated with the artist Thomas Mailaender, producing an art book through a similar residency at the Tanneries Roux in the Romans-sur-Isère village south of Lyon.

Young Designers Vie For LVMH Prize

GETTING THE MESSAGE OUT: Anton Belinskiy’s sweater said it all: “Poor But Cool.” He’s one of 26 young designers who displayed their wares at the headquarters of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton on Wednesday night, all vying for a cash prize of 300,000 euros, or $ 335,560 at current exchange, plus a year of coaching from the luxury group.
There was a mood of camaraderie among the designers, despite the walls separating their stands and all the jockeying for attention as members from the expert panel, who must whittle down the crop to eight finalists, toured the room along with top LVMH brass.
“It’s really exciting to see all these great talents here, and to see all the energy,” said Delphine Arnault, executive vice president of Louis Vuitton and the woman who conceived the prize as a powerful talent scout and advocate for young designers at the luxury giant her family controls. “It’s already great for them and I hope it’ll help their careers.”
The 45 experts have two days to inspect collections and meet designers before casting their vote. Finalists are to face a jury whose members include Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Nicolas Ghesquière, Raf Simons, Phoebe Philo, Riccardo Tisci, Jonathan Anderson and
