Get ready to embark on a visual journey through the history of Louis Vuitton as the French luxury fashion house presents its “Time Capsule” exhibition to Malaysian fans this month!
Travelling from the House’s beginnings in 1854 to the present day, the exhibition revisits its landmark innovations in technology and design by telling the story using rare and celebrated objects selected from the Louis Vuitton archive.
Taking over the Esplanade at KLCC Park from 7 to 28 July 2019, Kuala Lumpur is the 16th city to host this exquisite exhibition and is set against the backdrop of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. The “Time Capsule” exhibition made its debut in Hong Kong two years ago and has travelled around the world to cities such as Los Angeles, Toronto, Berlin, Dubai, Taipei and Osaka before reaching our shores. It’s certainly not to be missed by Louis Vuitton fans as it demonstrates the ways in which the House has anticipated the needs and desires of an ever-changing world over the past 160 years.
During the opening event on 6 July, notable guests such as Neelofa, Scha Alyahya, Awal Ashaari, Siti Saleha and Debbie Goh had the opportunity to preview a visual timeline of landmark moments in the Louis Vuitton story focusing on six key aspects:
- Artisans’ room – live experience with Louis Vuitton craftsmen
- The key to the codes – those distinctive design features that can be traced back to Louis Vuitton’s very first trunks
- Journeys around the world – revealing how Louis Vuitton met the demands of the new forms of transport
- Elegance in Motion – showing how Louis Vuitton has enabled its clients to travel in style
- Louis Vuitton and the arts – a selection of Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with renowned contemporary artists
- Magic Malle – symbol of the House, the trunk is where it all began
Faithful to its heritage, Louis Vuitton has opened its doors to architects, artists and designers across the years, all while developing disciplines such as ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories, watches, jewellery and fragrance.
The KL exhibition will run from 7 to 28 July 2019 daily from 10am to 10pm. Admissions are free for all visitors and the last entry is at 9.40pm.
