Louis Vuitton has once again taken over an iconic space to exhibit their most exemplary pieces in a digital sensory experience. Every piece is a collaboration between the luxury fashion house and some of the most recognizable luminaries of the last century.
If you’ve driven around Rodeo Drive recently, you’d be hard-pressed to have missed the white statuesque building accented with pink and purple ombre monogram quilted panels. Visitors from far and wide came to view the pieces on display and were not disappointed to find a space filled to the brim with Instagram-worthy rooms and backdrops.
The exhibition is intended to commemorate the significant collaborations Louis Vuitton has been involved in, hence the name of the exhibit itself. As visitors move room through room, they can view unique pieces that Louis Vuitton has made over the last century in conjunction with significant visionaries from artists to architects and celebrities. The exhibit is not limited to handbags but encompasses various categories from furniture and luggage to sculptures and clothing.
The Red Carpet Room is reminiscent of Old Hollywood and highlights the collaborations with celebrities for their red carpet looks over many years.
Each room is a brand new encounter, from a digitized Keepall room to a dark mirrored zone filled with pedestals in the shape of Louis Vuitton’s floral motifs which hoisted the Iconoclast collaborations of 2014. A singular trunk with digitally paneled sides sits in the center of a room surrounded by LED screens on each wall, casting simultaneous videos that are both beautiful and overwhelming.
The collaborations on display span from the 1920s to the present, including the newest ArtyCapucines Collection.
As guests ascend the pastel pink staircase up to the second floor, they’ll be met with a pop-up shopping experience where they can purchase unique and limited edition items.
Overall, while it’s not the most complete collection they’ve displayed to date, it is by far their most technologically advanced and is worth a look if you happen to be in the neighborhood.
The Louis Vuitton X exhibit is on display until September 15, 2019, at 468 North Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.
