Louis Vuitton X, an immersive journey through the House's 160-year history of creative exchanges and artistic collaborations, is now open at the iconic 468 North Rodeo Drive building in Beverly Hills.
Held across the two floors, Louis Vuitton X draws on over 180 items from Louis Vuitton's archives and scenography to trace the House's pioneering journey. The exhibition brings together a remarkable collection of early twentieth-century special-order trunks; beautiful art deco perfume bottles and window displays commissioned and designed by Louis Vuitton's grandson, Gaston-Louis, iconic Monogram bags reworked by renowned artists and designers, such as Karl Lagerfeld, Rei Kawakubo, Cindy Sherman and Frank Gehry, as well as original collaborations and commissions by artists including Yayoi Kusama, Richard Prince and Zaha Hadid.
Louis Vuitton X culminates with the world premiere of the Artycapucines collection, the House's new and exciting collaborative project with six leading contemporary artists: Sam Falls, Urs Fischer, Nicholas Hlobo, Alex Israel, Tschabalala Self and Jonas Wood.
Named after the street on which Louis Vuitton opened his first store, all artists have transformed the Capucines bag by combining their skills and imagination with the unparalleled artisanal savoir-faire of Louis Vuitton’s ateliers to create limited-edition original works.
Louis Vuitton X is a rich and engaging experience and an exhilarating exploration of Louis Vuitton's ongoing dialogue between the past and the future, heritage and modernity, savoir-faire and innovation.
