We are back with a new vlog… (Yes, it’s been a longggg time.)
Recently we visited the Louis Vuitton Exhibition in New York– Volez, Voguez, Voyagez .
The exhibition focuses on the life of Louis Vuitton Malletier, aka Louis Vuitton, and how he began one of the most successful and world re-known luxury retail companies and French Fashion House. No, Louis V did not start off by sewing clothes on a machine– instead he constructed boxes. Yes, BOXES! And this exhibition is filled with many and MANY of his original boxes. (And one tiny room filled with some more modern Couture clothing items.) After Louis V passed, his son took over the company and invented the famous LV logo you can spot practically everywhere today.
The most intriguing part of the exhibit has to be the „Louis Vuitton Loves America” portion. This segment focuses on the era of Marc Jacobs— American Fashion Designer– as Creative Director of Louis Vuitton. Did you know Marc Jacobs was affiliated with LV? Under Jacobs, the brand definitely took a more graphic, feminine, and eclectic approach.
If you are a fan of Fashion, Couture, Louis Vuitton, Fashion Stylist, Creative Director, Graphic Designer, Artist… you should visit this **tiny** exhibit, since admission is 100% free. What in NYC is free?! The Louis Vuitton Exhibit! You also get a free gift at the end. We won’t reveal what it is, you have to go and grab one yourself 🙂
(P.s. While at the exhibit we also discovered that young Louis Vuitton has an INCREDIBLE resemblance to Cole Sprouse. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.)
Thank you Raymond Swift for filming. You are amazing, always.
