LV Volez, Voguez, Voyagez

163 Year History

The legendary house of Louis Vuitton has embarked on its most epic expedition yet: a journey through time that goes all the way back to its founding in 1854 through “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez-Louis Vuitton,” starting in New York. Taking up two floors in the former New York Stock Exchange, it has been filled to the brim with all the usual suspects and unusual ones, each especially selected by its master curator and historian Olivier Saillard.

Be sure to travel down to the exhibit before it closes on January 7, 2018 and you might just catch a glimpse over the thick picnic sets and copper trunks from the early 1900s, handwritten letters by the original Mr. Louis Vuitton, all the dresses by Marc Jacobs, highly-coveted Supreme board by Mr Kim Jones, to recent pieces by Nicolas Ghesquiere and more spread into ten chapters. Be sure to catch the pop-up boutique which will run through March 30, 2018, too! 

Trunks, monograms and artist collaborations galore. In commemoration of Louis Vuitton‘s impressive 163-year history, Saillard found himself completely captivated by the story of the maison’s founder, who left at the young age of 14 to travel to Paris and become an apprentice trunk maker and packer. And so, he meant to create each room of the exhibition to represent each chapter; a self-portrait of the man. The goal: “Sometime to forget Louis Vuitton, the big brand, in order to remember the man that started this huge story.”
