Louis Vuitton: A history of luxury
Louis Vuitton is a widely coveted French luxury brand, famous for their iconic monogram design, luxury leather goods, jewellery, apparel and accessories. The brand has its origins in Paris where craftsman Louis Vuitton gained fame as the personal trunk maker and packer for the Empress of the French and invented the ‘art of travel’. Today Louis Vuitton is the world’s most valuable luxury brand renowned for combining innovation with style and craftsmanship.
The SEE LV experience will immerse visitors in the Louis Vuitton legend, exhibiting a remarkable collection of early twentieth-century trunks, artistic collaborations and iconic leather creations. The experience will feature five universes exploring different parts of Louis Vuitton’s history and it's peerless contribution to the fashion world.
