Calling all fashionistas! If you haven’t heard, THE Louis Vuitton is presenting an exhibit called “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez—Louis Vuitton” at the American Stock Exchange Building from Oct. 27th through Jan. 7th, 2018. Curated by Olivier Saillard, the exhibition 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.

The historic journey, designed by Robert Carsen, is divided into ten chapters, one of which is entirely devoted to the U.S. 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.

 

Here’s the best part—free admission! So take in some fashion history all while window shopping to the next level.
