Les Journées Particulières returns in just over a month with an even bigger edition spanning 5 continents: 56 Maisons will welcome the public to 77 different venues, 39 of them new this year. For an advance taste of three very special days on October 12, 13 and 14, tune in to “Confidences Particulières”, a series of 13 podcasts featuring the passionate people who are emblematic of the LVMH Group and its values.
Beginning September 17, LVMH invites the public a little further into the incredibly vast and diverse world of its Maisons with an exclusive collection of audio tour podcasts called “Confidences Particulières”.
Journalist and podcast host Julien Cernobori went to speak with LVMH Group artisans where they work and create. From a cellar in Champagne to the peaceful banks of Lake Geneva or the studious silence of a Paris shoemaking workshop, he listens to women and men who share their tremendous pride in their métier, love for their terroir and obsession with perfection.
These are stories of passion, accounts of unique lives amidst the little seen secrets of LVMH Maisons, such as Bulgari, Château d’Yquem, Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Sephora and Dior. The “Confidences Particulières” series of 13 exclusive podcasts debuts September 17 on the Journées Particulières website and download platforms (Soundcloud, Podcast Addict and Apple Podcast).
