Heritage – something that defines iconic brands around the world. Whether in fashion, automotive, beauty, or architecture, heritage is common among the best brands and the most well-known brands. Volez Voguez Voyagez by Louis Vuitton is an exhibition that explores that heritage of the Louis Vuitton brand, sharing their unique story and the impact that have made across centuries in travel and luxury.
The exhibition has completely transformed the old American Stock Exchange building on Trinity Place into a complete world of Louis Vuitton. Visitors step into the story of Vuitton from the beginning as they are told the story of a 14-year-old Louis Vuitton who left Anchay on the eastern border of France in 1835 to head to Paris by foot, reaching the city of lights 2 years later. From there, visitors walk through a visual representation of milestones and iconic pieces from the maison until the modern era.
The exhibition focuses on 10 aspects that have contributed to the success of the House of Louis Vuitton:
- The Trunk of 1906
- Classic Trunks
- The Invention of Travel
- The Painting Trunk
- Curio Trunks
- The Beauty of Fashion
- Louis Vuitton Loves America
From some of the first trunks created in 1892 to pieces owned by famous stars and one-of-kind collaboration pieces, the exhibit has unique and rare pieces that you will not be able to view anywhere else. The end of the exhibition features artisan showcasing how certain aspects of the bags are made where visitors can also feel the various types of leathers. There is also a small boutique at the end featuring a variety of coffee table books, small leather goods, and the newest range of perfumes.
