そのルイヴィトンが、ガリエラ宮パリ市立モード美術館 館長のオリヴィエ・サイヤールのキュレーションによって集めた膨大なコレクションの展示を行っている。「Volez, Voguez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton(空へ、海へ、彼方へ──旅するルイ・ヴィトン)」展というタイトルのこのエキシビションは、一歩中へ足を踏み入れればたちまち、創業者一族のアーカイヴから現在までのルイ・ヴィトンのクリエーションの膨大な歴史をたどる旅がスタートする。

Japan is a nation that has a penchant for the good things in life, and that includes designer goods. And one of the most beloved in the whole nation is Louis Vuitton. And that’s not just among the rich or fashion bourgeois, but no doubt that the baker or butcher down the street knows the brand, or may even have his own LV wallet at home. And that’s because the relationship between Louis Vuitton and Japan goes back a very long way.

The “LV” monogram itself is inspired by Japanese “mon” or coat of arms, and no less than three Japanese artists have been tapped for major collaboration since the start of this century (Takashi Murakami, Comme des Garcons and Yayoi Kusama).

So now Louis Vuitton has chosen Tokyo to be the second city to get their large-scale exhibit, “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez- Louis Vuitton“. Stepping inside, you’ll find a myriad of rooms displaying the personal trunks of founder George Vuitton and his friends and family through the decades. It’s a literal “trip”, taking you through the desert, into the air, on trains, and more.
