After Series 3 in London in the fall Louis Vuitton is now exhibiting at the Grand Palais until 21 February 2016. Curated by Olivier Saillard, also Director of Musee Galliera, the Parisian fashion museum, the exhibition unveils how the founders of Louis Vuitton first created a family hand made luggage house and how “trips, travels and journeys in all forms” shaped this iconic luggage brand into the fashion house that it now became.
After a trip through memory lane and the history of Vuitton family, Olivier Saillard takes us through land, air and sea to discover the iconic pieces of luggage created by the Vuitton brothers.
After being renowned worldwide for the quality of their luggages Louis Vuitton started receiving private orders for bespoke pieces of luggage such as telegram machines, libraries and even paintings and musical instrument cases.
The success of bespoke orders inspired the founders of Louis Vuitton to perpetuate the private requests into multiple accessories lines from womanswear and menswear fashion and accessories cases, perfume cases and handbag lines.
Alike Series 3 in London, Volez, Voyagez Voguez also provides insights on how Louis Vuitton evolved into a fashion brand and showcases the savoir faire of its highly qualified staff with bag making workshops.
