  • NEVER ENDING STORY

    Watch the Louis Vuitton film, created in line with the "Volez, Voguez, Voyagez" exhibition which opens at the Grand Palais in Paris tomorrow.

    Traveling through time, across 5 generations, the story of Louis Vuitton dates back to the year 1854. Here below read this Never Ending Story for yourself and watch the epic film, created alongside the Paris exhibition which will be open to the public beginning December 4th.

    "Louis Vuitton was just fourteen when he left the Jura on a journey
    A journey to Paris, where he learned to master Carpentry

    Carpentry which he used to engeneer crinoline petticoats
    For Empress Eugenie – Louis became a man of note

    Noted by the world of fashion, his fame was gracious
    And still dominates fashion today – always creative, always audacious

    Audacious synonymous with his name
    Where art and craftsmanship soon became
    From Capucines to Asnieres
    Sources of innovation beyond compare

    Comparing his customers’ needs, his intuition
    Of an age of greater travel than any before
    He invented the flat trunk, the first modern luggage
    The famous S-lock – an unpickable thief block –
    The mini-trunk, and so much more

    More cases, accessories, and custom luggage
    Visionnary in all type of voyage
    Savorgnan de Brazza's camp-bed trunk for explorer
    Caused a sensation amongst the influencers

    Influencing the Thirties, as women found a voice
    Louis Vuitton’s new Keepall gave them a choice
    Of purses to carry that are now fashion icons

    Iconic as the monogram, LV
    Standing for true artistry
    Art nourished by travel, then further enhanced
    By Sprouse, Murakami, evolving in a dance

    Dance of creative genius soaring onward and up
    Like the wind-blown sails of the America’s Cup

    Cupped sails that echo the avant-garde lines
    Of the Foundation, a symbol that defines
    The courage beloved of… Louis Vuitton"

    Louis Vuitton will celebrate “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton” at the Grand Palais from December 4th, 2015 till February 21st, 2016.

    Curated by Olivier Saillard, this exhibition retraces Louis Vuitton’s great journey from 1854 till today, through depictions of the Maison’s founding members and those who create the Louis Vuitton of tomorrow.

    "Louis Vuitton has always been at the avant-garde of creation. More than a century after, if Louis Vuitton remains at the helm of fashion, it's because we continously inspire ourselves from the past while anticipating trends of our times. For this exhibition, Olivier Saillard has immersed himself in the archives of our Maison to decode its secrets. He delivers a fresh vision of our past, present and future." says Michael Burke, CEO of Louis Vuitton.

    The Grand Palais was constructed in 1900 during one of the most spectacular Universal Exhibitions in Paris which welcomed 48 milllion visitors. At this turning point of the century, Georges Vuitton was in charge of organizing the whole section of "Travel & Leather goods". The Louis Vuitton booth, surprisingly in shape of a merry-go-round, presented the Maison's most innovative luggage and elegant bags and was the center of attention.
