Louis Vuitton celebrates Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – its exhibition which retraces Louis Vuitton’s great journey from 1854 till today. French luxury house demonstrates its rich heritage through depictions of the Maison’s founding members and those who create the Louis Vuitton of tomorrow. Curated by Olivier Saillard, the exhibition is scheduled from December 4 until February 21, 2016, at the Grand Palais in Paris.
“Louis Vuitton has always been at the avant-garde of creation. More than a century after, if Louis Vuitton remains at the helm of fashion, it’s because we continuously inspire ourselves from the past while anticipating trends of our times. For this exhibition, Olivier Saillard has immersed himself in the archives of our Maison to decode its secrets. He delivers a fresh vision of our past, present and future.” says Michael Burke, CEO of Louis Vuitton.
The Grand Palais was constructed in 1900 during one of the most spectacular Universal Exhibitions in Paris which welcomed 48 million visitors. At this turning point of the century, George Vuitton was in charge of organizing the whole section of “Travel & Leather goods”. The Louis Vuitton booth, surprisingly in shape of a merry-go-round, presented the Maison’s most innovative luggage and elegant bags and was the centre of attention.
