The Louis Vuitton exhibition was nothing less than luxury on full display. Curated by Olivier Saillard and Robert Carsen as artistic director & set designer, the exhibition retraces the adventure of the House of Louis Vuitton from 1854 to the present. A story told through the portraits of its founders, as well as those who today are inventing the Louis Vuitton of tomorrow.
This free admission exhibition was filled with the best that the Louis Vuttion brand has to offer. It was great to see how Louis Vuttion started to as a local luggage company unto the household brand that everyone wants to have a piece of. The wide range of visitors to the exhibition speaks to the brands reach beyond fashion but is a lifestyle.
It was amazing to see the role my hometown of Chicago played in the story of the Louis Vuttion brand. Louis Vuttion’s son George came to America for the first time when he attended the 1893 Chicago World’sFair. It was there he met with a department store owner who would help debut Louis Vuttion products in America.
I was able to see Louis Vuttion from the beginning as well as modern-day collaborations with brands like Vivienne Westwood to urban brands like Supreme.
Louis Vuttion has had a hand in all parts of travel fashion from the very start.
The first Louis Vuttion tunk was created for theLouis Vuttion brand in 1875.
Louis Vuttion used canvas and patterns to set his creations apart, as well as a protection against counterfeits.
