Louis Vuitton Series 2 – Past, Present, Future
February 13, 2015
Louis Vuitton unveils a modern and unexpected reinterpretation of a fashion show in an unconventional Los Angeles-based exhibition, Louis Vuitton Series 2 – Past, Present, Future. Visitors are invited to discover Artistic Director Nicolas Ghesquière’s inspirations for his third ready-to-wear show for Louis Vuitton. The exhibition takes you on a journey into the designer’s mind, allowing visitors to grasp how he approaches and reinterprets “stylistic codes” at the 160-year-old fashion and luxury house.
Naturally, as Ghesquière arrived at Louis Vuitton, he immediately immersed himself in the many facets of the house’s history and was drawn to the LV logo (patented in 1908), a design stamped all those years ago on a trunk. Ghesquière pulled this detail from the archives and gave it new life on his collection’s accessories. Reflected in multiple panels of light, the LV circle symbolizes how a century-old logo can project into the future. This is just one of the small journeys Series 2 takes you on. A promenade of different design themes and universes are expressed throughout this exhibition. Visit Louis Vuitton Series 2 – Past, Present, Future at 1135 North Highland Avenue in Los Angeles now through February 22, 2015.
