New York Exhibition Volez, Voguez, Voyagez retraces the history of the iconic brand
Curated by Olivier Saillard, the exhibition retraces the history of the House of Louis Vuitton from 1854 to today. A story told through the portraits of its founders, samples of their historic work and the vision of its contemporary creators.
This historic journey, designed by Robert Carsen, is divided into ten chapters, one of which is entirely devoted to the United States of America and New York City. The tour opens with the most symbolic object of the House: the trunk, a model fashioned with contemporary flair, embodying the iconic hallmarks and bold spirit of Louis Vuitton. The exhibition features objects and documents from the Louis Vuitton heritage archives, as well as select articles on loan from the Palais Galliera and the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris. The exhibition concludes with a display devoted to the savoir-faire of the artisans in the Louis Vuitton workshops.
