In the footsteps of Louis Vuitton...” The expression could be taken literally, given its nod to the now-renowned name of a young man with a sense of destiny, who left his native Jura region on foot to conquer Paris and, later, the world. “In the footsteps of Louis Vuitton” is also the House’s invitation to explore a vast retrospective at the Grand Palais. The journey begins with a trunk that opens to recount the 160-year adventure of an extraordinary family. From past to present, from craftsmanship to creativity, each and every contemporary piece is ennobled by its rich heritage, while the pioneering imagination of the founder is reflected in the avant-garde vision of the new generation. Olivier Saillard, the curator of the exhibition, gives us a glimpse of the treasures the trunk contains. Let us travel back in time in the company of some of Louis Vuitton’s most emblematic designs.
