Louis Vuitton is Celebrating 160 Years
Over the past 160 years Louis Vuitton has collaborated with many leading artists. To celebrate, they created an exhibition in Los Angeles. At the exhibition there were custom bags and a tropical pop-up shop. The Louis Vuitton X exhibition was located at 468 North Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills. There were also almost two hundred items from their fashion house’s archive on display.
There were many different spaces, everything from vibrantly colored rooms to dark black spaces with glowing lights.
Above, is one exhibit room featuring rosey checkerboard walls, ceiling, and floors. Toward the top of the room is the illusion of an ocean complete with a boat, dock, and cliffs. Another space, below, is covered in large, black Louis Vuitton writing on a stark white backdrop for the contemporary art display.
Included in the exhibition are six Louis Vuitton Monogram leather duffle bags that have been reinterpreted by renowned artists and designers, including the late Karl Lagerfeld and Zaha Hadid, as well as, Rei Kawakubo, Yayoi Kusama, Cindy Sherman, and Frank Gehry.
The display above shows custom-designed Capucines bags designed by Sam Falls, Urs Fischer, Nicholas Hlobo, Alex Israel, Tschabalala Self, and Jonas Wood. The designs are part of the Artycapucines collection.
On the top floor there was a pop-up store. The space was decorated with pink palm trees and a domed yellow ceiling that gives the illusion of a glowing sunset. The shop included products curated by Sarah Andelman who is the founder of the consulting and curating company “Just an Idea” and former creative director of the Parisian concept store Colette. The store offered everything from women’s ready-to-wear clothes, leather goods, accessories, shoes, and fragrances.
Additional highlights included a collection of early twentieth-century special order Louis Vuitton trunks, art deco perfume bottles, and window displays designed by Louis Vuitton’s grandson, Gaston-Louis.
The exterior was vibrantly colored creating a cohesive flow in the design of the interior and the exterior.
