Louis Vuitton is commemorating its 200th year and founder's legacy by throwing together an exhibition featuring 200 trunks with artworks by BTS, Kim Jones & Supreme, Eboy, Fabrizio Plessi, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Cao Fei, Bita Fayyazi, Cao Yuxi and more.
The travelling exhibition will make its first international stop in Singapore beginning 4th April 2022, at Marina Bay. Following its debut in Asnières, France, at the Louis Vuitton family house, the exhibition begins in a briefing room panelled in LED screens, following an open dreamscape panorama before the circuit ends with two dedicated rooms, which we will not spoil with too many details. The exhibition is free of charge, and you may register at ap.louisvuitton.com from 1st April 2022.
Faye McLeod, Louis Vuitton’s Visual Image Director, says, “This project has always been about creativity – a real tribute to Louis’s ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit. We get to see how such a cross-section of talents answered the same brief while also taking a moment to appreciate the man himself.”
While the price tag of a trunk is beyond our paycheque (this party trunk costs up to S$279,000, and features a makeshift bar), there are many other trunk variations that are on offer, including wallets and bags on the website.
Our editorial team is dedicated to finding and telling you more about the products and deals we love. If you love them too and decide to purchase through the links below, we may receive a commission. Prices were correct at the time of publication.
