Louis Vuitton Volez Voguez Voyagez
My friend and I couldn’t believe the exhibition was free. It’s so large and extensive that they could easily charge $50 for admission. The exhibition, curated by Olivier Saillard, retraces the adventure of the House of Louis Vuitton from 1854 to the present. It begins with the iconic trunks for travel across oceans and weaves its way to bags created for yachting, luggage and custom bags for the introduction of the automobile, special bags for the rise of aviation, and the luxury travel of trains. It also highlights bespoke trunks for explorers and celebrities as well as the collaborations with artists and designers. There is a special section dedicated to Louis Vuitton in America and many luxurious products owned by movie stars like Greta Garbo, Lauren Bacall, and Elizabeth Taylor. I highly recommend visiting before it closes on 7 January 2018. While it’s free, you must order tickets. You can meander the exhibition at your leisure or book a guided tour. If you can’t make it to New York, the accompanying book Volez Voguez Voyagez is worth buying.
