200 Reasons To Love Louis
“200 TRUNKS, 200 VISIONARIES: THE EXHIBITION” has set up shop on Madison Ave. Taking the iconic building formerly occupied by Barney’s New York, the final leg of the exhibit’s tour, which graced audiences from the Louis Vuitton family house in Asnières, Singapore, and Los Angeles, will now honor Louis Vuitton’s career debut as a trunk-maker and celebrate his 200th birthday from the world’s fashion capital.
The LOUIS 200 project invited a mosaic of talents and friends spanning arts and culture, the sciences, sports, global causes and more to each personalize a metaphorical blank canvas measuring approximately the same dimensions of the original trunk that Louis conceived in the 1850s. This invitation yielded 200 extraordinary transformations: vessels transmitting dreams and desires, abstract concepts and artistic expressions. Among the familiar names: BTS, Supreme, Peter Marino, Lego, Liu Wei, Cao Fei and Fornasetti.
Featuring interactive experiences and a space filled with installations, the exhibit promises to the go-to fashion event of the season. The “200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries: The Exhibition” is open every day from 10 am–8 pm through December 31. Admission is free, and you can reserve your tickets here.
