I would like to share the Louis Vuitton Volez, Voguez, Voyagez exhibition with you who were not be able to see or the ones who are far away from New York and deeply close to fashion! As you all know, I like to create my posts more into what is going on in New York more like activities, fashion, art, exhibitions, and getaways. This is one of the art + history + fashion exhibitions that I was really interested in. The exhibition curated by Olivier Saillard, which retraces the adventure of the House of Louis Vuitton from 1854 to the present. A story told through the portraits of its founders, as well as those who today are inventing the Louis Vuitton of tomorrow.
This historic journey, designed by Robert Carsen, is divided into ten chapters, one of which is entirely devoted to the United States of America and New York City. The tour opens with the most symbolic object of the House: the trunk, a model fashioned with contemporary flair, embodying the iconic hallmarks and bold spirit of Louis Vuitton. The exhibition features objects and documents from the Louis Vuitton heritage archives, as well as select articles on loan from the Palais Galliera and the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris. The exhibition concludes with a display devoted to the savoir-faire of the artisans in the Louis Vuitton workshops. For further information, you can visit here.

Almost like a little wardrobe which can travel with you.
Here is one of my very first love with Louis Vuitton. I remember speedy monogram miroir bags were super trendy almost 10 years ago. I remember myself to want to get it so bad when I saw at Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian. Such a funny story 🙂
The suitcases on the right side are the president suitcase in nomad natural leather and created for Wes Anderson’s film The Darjeeling Limited.
I had no idea about these bags before I came to the exhibition. I loved the sense of humor of Marc Jacobs and Richard Prince.

Yayoi Kusama is a great Japanese artist, writer and the mother of Infinity Mirror and Festival of Life exhibitions that I die for to see. She is an incredible woman with a great story. Here is her little story if you are interested in 🙂
While we were looking at the dresses, there was a huge screen in the room to show which celebrities and models wore the dresses. This nurse dress was worn by Naomi Campbell.
