Voyage en Capitale: Louis Vuitton & Paris – Musée Carnavalet

28/10/2010 § Leave a comment

Commemorating 150 years of Louis Vuitton history, the Musee Carnavalet in Paris has curated an amazing exhibit of over 200 works documenting the history and evolution of the iconic French trunk maker and fashion house.  Coinciding with the release of Louis Vuitton: 100 Legendary Trunks, the exhibit is a celebration of technical innovation and artistic collaboration.

The mini-site for the exhibit is also worth perusing.  Especially interesting is the interview of Patrick-Louis Vuitton, current Director of Haute Couture (special orders) at Louis Vuitton and great-grandson of founder Louis Vuitton.  He discusses the most important piece in the exhibit for him — an attache case carried by his grandfather.

The exhibit closes 27 February.  Further info can be found here (francais).
