View Entire Article

You can relive the creative collaborations between Louis Vuitton and globally renowned artists and designers over the past 160 years at the House’s latest exhibition, Louis Vuitton X, which opens its Rodeo Drive doors today. The show, which spans two floors and ten rooms, includes over 180 archival items from iconic LV collaborations such as the Monogram bags, reworked by late designer Karl Lagerfeld, Comme des Garçons founder Rei Kawakubo, photographer Cindy Sherman, and architect Frank Gehry. Also on display is the polka-dotted handbag collection by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and the curved handbag collaboration with the late British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid.

The exhibition’s denouement is the brand’s latest collaboration: the ArtyCapucines collection, a series of six handbags reinterpreted by leading contemporary artists Sam Falls, Urs Fischer, Nicholas Hlobo, Alex Israel, Tschabalala Self, and Jonas Wood. Named after rue Neuve-des-Capucines, the Paris street where the first Louis Vuitton store was located, the limited-edition original collection embodies the House’s legacy of imagination, artistry, and innovation.

 

Louis Vuitton X is open from June 28 to September 15 at 468 North Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills.
