The Louis Vuitton – Marc Jacobs exhibition at Paris’ Musee des Arts Decoratifs highlights the two influential characters within the brand. Its founder and its creative director of 15 years and how they have influenced the brand at different stages in its life.
The exhibition features various displays of old trunks on the first floor, Vuittons original purpose of the brand. It was Jacob’s challenge, to introduce mens and womenswear collections to the brand which had already spanned nearly a century and a half. These contemporary outings are also displayed alongside Vuittons original work, contemporary dresses, handbags and overnight bags adorn mannequins and showcases against a back drop of reflective black and white flooring, fielded panel walls decorated grey and dark ceilings throughout.
