Louis Vuitton Fans, This New Exhibition Is A Must-See

For those who like the intersection where fashion meets art and design, the new Louis Vuitton Time Capsule exhibition should be right up your alley.

Taking place from now till November 5 at the atrium outside of Ion Orchard, the exhibition examines how the French maison has pre-empted the needs and desires of a changing world over the course of 160 years. What this means: Some of the house’s oldest and rarest creations (from Japanese tea boxes to picnic sets!) will be on display alongside modern inventions such as the Petite Malle clutch and even a fold-out chaise lounge chair.

And for those who like to collect memorabilia, there’s even a “vending machine” of sorts – every visitor to the exhibition will receive two postcards at the end of the tour. There are a total of 8 designs, 4 of which are exclusive to Singapore, and each postcard comes laden with collectible stickers.

Admission is free.

Below, we round up the many pieces that caught our eye at the exhibition:

Coated canvas, wood, leather, brass, silver, ceramic and glass picnic trunk, 1909
Don’t you wish your picnic game looked as stylish as this beautiful Louis Vuitton set? It sure conjures a longing for the past where dress codes were more defined, no? Epi leather, wood, brass, fabric and bamboo tea box, 1989
For those who love Japanese culture, here’s a beaut: the maison created this for a Japanese private client in 1989. Actually, scratch that, it’s a beautiful set regardless if you like Japanese culture or not. Petite hat bag, Resort 2018
A new style that just debuted during the stunning Louis Vuitton Resort 2018 show (yes,the one held at a museum on a Japanese mountain), it’s a bit-sized and super cute take on the hat boxes of old. Louis Vuitton x Supreme coated canvas, wood, leathe, brass and metal trunk and skateboard
Yes it was the collection that whipped both the fashion and the streetwear crowd into a frenzy. Basically, a genius, tactical move from both parties and right in tune with the times. Vintage luggage trunk
Yes, in the olden days where (affluent) people had butlers and all to carry their luggage, they practically brought a movable wardrobe with them when traveling. Leather, wood, brass and coated canvas Boite Promenade bag, Fall/Winter 2015
Leave it to Nicolas Ghesquiere to modernise the classic trunk. Like this?
