Go on a voyage across the past and present of French luggage house Louis Vuitton in the "Volez, Voguez, Voyagez - Louis Vuitton" exhibition in Kioicho, Tokyo. The exhibition pays tribute to the brand's fascinating legacy since 1854.
Running until June 19, the exhibition is a collaboration of curator Olivier Saillard and scenographer Robert Carsen. The venue is divided into 10 chapters of the maison's travel story, beginning with the house's icon - an antique malle trunk.
Objects and documents from the brand's history are on display. There are also archives of the founding members and those who have joined the journey along the way. The exhibition also features a selection of items on loan from the Palais Galliera, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris and from private collectors, including trunks specially commissioned by craftsmen from Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto.
The spotlight is on the remake of a valuable bespoke trunk for French couturier Jean Patou. Made in 1923 and available in white Épi leather, the trunk is used to transport gowns hanging from a rail on wheels.
