Last week we hot-stepped across to 180 The Strand to see the much anticipated ‘Louis Vuitton Series 3 – Past, Present, Future’ exhibition. If you haven’t been yet, you need to.
Think stunning showcase of Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière’s influences, think room after room of sensory, experiential gazing.
The exhibition celebrates Ghesquière’s Autumn/Winter 2015 ready-to-wear collection, his third for the French fashion house, by bringing it to all-new audiences (those not regular on the front row scene) but it also nods to the mastery behind the making of the brand for the last 150 years.
The room that replicates the catwalk show held at the Louis Vuitton Foundation is a definite favourite, purely for the fact that you can literally relive that ‘Infinite Show’. The Louis Vuitton model fleet sauntering down the runway in all 48 looks right before you on multiple digital screens reflected in mirrored walls? Very, very cool.
The workshop room is just as noteworthy. Here we watched craftsmen working on the Petite Malle clutch in real time – you know, that iconic mini leather trunk – learning that it takes an impressive 30 hours to get to this level of luxury.
Another highlight was the SUPER bright white room filled with model mannequins wearing and/or carrying Louis Vuitton. Stark and completely stunning.
In short, this is not an exhibition you want to miss – it’s open to the general public with free admission from 10 am to 8 pm, 21st September to 18th October 2015. Go there!
