‘Awakened Hands, Awakened Minds’ celebrates the phenomenal, transformative period of 19th century France with the explosion of French savoir-faire and inventiveness – recalling the parallel journey of Louis Vuitton’s own magnificent beginnings.

In a year that shines with French pride, Louis Vuitton’s 2024 High Jewelry Collection – ‘Awakened Hands, Awakened Minds’ – transports us to an epochal, transformative time, when savoir-faire became France’s legacy, and innovation its enlightenment.

The Collection celebrates the country’s flourishing savoir-faire, great craftsmen and leading inventors of the 19th century. Here, luxury becomes synonymous with innovation, a spirit and ambition that is magnified by the Collection’s singular and daring design vision.

“France in the 19th century was a phenomenal time of incredible change, and when Paris really became the center of the world”, says Francesca Amfitheatrof, Artistic Director for Watches and Jewelry. “The design language of ‘Awakened Hands, Awakened Minds’ reflects that – all its intricacies, complications and innovations – turned into incredible jewels.”

At 220 unique masterpiece jewels set across 13 different themes, this is Amfitheatrof’s sixth High Jewelry Collection for the Maison and its largest Collection yet.
