昨年、パリ グラン・パレにてスタートした「空へ、海へ、彼方へ ── 旅するルイ・ヴィトン」展が、日本に上陸し4月23日より紀尾井町特設会場にて開催されている。



「VVV – Louis Vuitton(空へ、海へ、彼方へ ── 旅するルイ・ヴィトン)」展
休館日:月曜(ただし4/25, 5/2, 6/13は13時〜20時)

After receiving over 300,000 guests when it showed in Paris, Louis Vuitton has brought ‘Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton’ Exhibition to Tokyo from April 23rd to June 19th 2016. Curated by Olivier Saillard, it retraces the history of Louis Vuitton from 1854 until the present day, through archives of the Family’s founding members and the many collaborators that have contributed to LV’s journey.

The exhibition is held in a bespoke structure near Kioicho, the neighbourhood in Tokyo, where in 1978 Louis Vuitton opened its first store in Japan. We were at the opening party last week where guests form around the world including Cate Blanchett and Sophia Coppola joined celebrities from the Asian region including Fumi Nikaido, Fan Bingbing, EXO’s Suho and Kai and many more.

Since the end of the 19th century, the House has always maintained strong ties with Japan. From the mon(family crest) inspirations of the Monogram canvas, to the long list of renowned Japanese clients such as the political leader Taisuke Itagaki, and the collaborations with Japanese contemporary artists from Murakami to Kusama. The thematic journey conceived and designed by Robert Carsen tells the story of the House in 10 chapters including one entirely dedicated to Japan. It opens with the absolute symbol of Louis Vuitton: an antique malle, an innately modern design, it fast became the House’s icon, epitomizing Louis Vuitton’s audacious spirit. The exhibition presents objects and documents from Louis Vuitton’s archives, as well as, a selection of pieces on loan from the Palais Galliera, Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris and from private collectors. Some of the trunks include specially commissioned objects by craftsmen from Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto. A section dedicated to craftsmanship, with craftsmen from the Louis Vuitton ateliers closes the exhibition.
