Louis Vuitton unveiled yesterday an exhibit called “Trunks and Toys,” which showcases the luxury brand’s craftsmanship and travel heritage legacy. The exhibit contains 10 vignettes that tell the story of Louis Vuitton’s travel luggage evolution for almost a century, featuring rare antique trunks and bags that date from 1885 to 1980.
The 10 trunks and bags displayed in the exhibit’s mini scenes are accompanied by 12 vintage painted metal toys collected by the luxury house’s founding family, and by 10 photographs taken by French photographer Jean Larivière. Larivière, a long-time collaborator of Louis Vuitton and other luxury brands, chronicled Louis Vuitton’s celebration of l’âme du voyage—the soul of travel—through breathtaking prints that portray the antique toys set against panoramic backdrops all over the globe.
