Louis Vuitton to host the 'Volez, Voguez, Voyagez' exhibition at Grand Palais
September 24, 2015: Louis Vuitton is hosting a rare exhibition, “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton”, at the Grand Palais from December 4, 2015 till February 21, 2016. Curated by Olivier Saillard, the exhibition retraces Louis Vuitton’s journey from 1854 till today.
The Grand Palais was constructed in 1900 during one of the most spectacular Universal Exhibitions in Paris which welcomed 48 million visitors. That time, George Vuitton was in charge of organizing the entire section dedicated to travel and leather goods. The Louis Vuitton booth, made creatively in the shape of a merry-go-round, presented the brand’s innovative luggage and elegant bags and was the center of attention.
The thematic journey conceived and designed by Robert Carsen navigates through nine chapters, opening with the absolute symbol of Louis Vuitton: an antique malle. The exhibition presents objects and documents from Louis Vuitton’s Patrimony as well as a selection of pieces lent by Palais Galliera, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris. A section dedicated to Craftsmanship closes the exhibition.
