Imagination and inspiration come together at Louis Vuitton, which never ceases to revisit its love of words and travel.
The exhibition “Fondation Louis Vuitton building in Paris by Frank Gehry” will be held in Beijing from 19th June to 16th August 2015, first step of the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s project abroad.
As stated during its inauguration, the Fondation Louis Vuitton intends to deploy its artistic activities not only in Paris but also abroad. The first step of this "beyond-the-walls" programme will take place in Beijing from 19th June to 16th August 2015, in a specially allocated venue within the 'China World' complex.
From early sketches to the completion of work, the monographic exhibition focuses on Frank Gehry’s project for the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. It offers a new vision of the creative universe of the architect and Laureate of the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 1989, who has described the Foundation as a 'magnificent vessel that symbolizes France’s profound cultural vocation'.
The show will then travel to Tokyo, where it will be held in the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton from 15th October 2015. Future events in the Fondation Louis Vuitton’s "beyond-the-walls" art programme will be announced subsequently.

Fifteen strong looks that nonetheless remain open to multiple interpretations and possibilities through the layering of complementary elements.
It is about listening to the clothes and understanding the tempo of their materials: dotted swiss under leather, ruching with quilting, tweed and knit, velvet and lace, MONOGRAM canvas and slim twill.
