Behind the doors at Louis Vuitton
All hail Louis Vuitton, the 161-year-old house that started off selling suitcases in Paris and is today the world’s most valuable luxury brand (and is basically the oxygen that the entire Kardashian family lives on).
And while the whole show is a brilliant French lesson in all things Vuitton, the exhibit's best little nugget of information is about the logo itself. Turns out, the signature monogram print, beloved by everyone from Miranda Kerr’s dog to hip-hop artists, wasn’t the first Louis Vuitton trademark--head designer Nicolas Ghesquière discovered an 1854 design with an LV inside a circle that he’s revived. The original logo is on display at the show in a blazing red 10-foot neon art installation.
Series 2 (a follow-up to the Series 1 show exhibited last year in Shanghai and Tokyo) is open now through February 22. Go and be dazzled.
