Opened to the public last week in New York City’s former American Stock Exchange building, ‘Volez, Voguez, Voyagez’ exhibition reviews the history of Louis Vuitton from 1854 until the modern day. The same exhibition first made an entrance at the Grand Palais, Paris in December 2015 and has since enjoyed successful stints in Tokyo and Seoul.

Curated by Olivier Saillard, French’s star fashion curator, historian, and performer, ‘Volez, Voguez, Voyagez’ in New York explores the archives of the House’s founding family members.

And opening up like a book, the exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the various chapters and discover from 1854, through depictions of the Maison’s founding members and how they have brought the brand’s journey to global success.

And continuing from the creators of Louis Vuitton of tomorrow – Nicolas Ghesquière, who is the current creative director, at the helm of the house of Louis Vuitton’s womenswear collections, breathes life into the brand with cutting-edge fashion offering for forward-thinking fashion designers and fashionistas in the world.

The journey continues…

Divided into ten chapters, the first chapter opens to an antique trunk fashioned with contemporary flair, signifying a symbol of the House’s signature luxury luggage options. The final room shares the story of the brand’s history in New York City and the US.

Louis Vuitton also created pop-up boutique to kick-start its exhibition at the city’s Brookfield Place. View a curated assortment of leather accessories to fragrances in the lovely boutique, which will run for a limited time only.

The ‘Volez, Voguez, Voyagez’ exhibition will run till Jan 7, 2018.
