Video: Louis Vuitton Retrospective In Paris
The Volez, Voguez, Voyagez exposition is dedicated to the great journey of Louis Vuitton through time: curator Olivier Sayard has ordered all the most important events in the history of the House from 1854 to the present day, and highlighted key figures - from the founders to those who are responsible for its future today. Seeking to uncover its secrets (after dozens of exhibitions, books and various special projects, Louis Vuitton still has something to surprise), Sayyar has done a lot of work in the archives. This is how nine sections of a thematic journey, conceived and brought to life by Canadian director Robert Carsen, were born.
Once inside the Grand Palais and reach the entrance to the retrospective, you will see an antique chest - the cornerstone of the French House. Its design, however, is fundamentally modern: it anticipates the Louis Vuitton aesthetic, modern fashion trends and demonstrates the innovation that the House has always distinguished. Back in 1900, when the Grand Palais was erected for the World's Fair, Georges Vuitton was commissioned to design the entire section dedicated to travel goods and leather goods. Louis Vuitton's carousel stand was in the spotlight, with 48 million visitors attending the exhibition.
Louis Vuitton's innovative luggage and handbags, which had the status of objects of desire at the beginning of the 20th century, and which preserve it, have now been provided by the Palais Galliera Paris City Fashion Museum or retrieved from the archives of the Maison. You can admire them, having traced through the past, present and future of the brand, until February 21, 2016.
