Louis Vuitton’s much anticipated 200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries: The Exhibition has finally open its doors to the public and it’s a doozy. For the uninitiated, this global travelling show is part of the Maison’s massive tribute to the 200th birthday of its namesake founder.
Louis Vuitton invited 200 of the world’s most vaunted stars across art, fashion, film, literature, music and sports to interpret its famous steamer trunks, including names like Japanese floral artist Azuma Makoto (the same guy who launched flowers into space), K-pop juggernauts BTS, legendary feminist author Gloria Steinem, art curator extraordinaire Hans Ulrich Obrist, fashion’s most exciting stylist Ibrahim Kamara, visionary Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto and so many more.
It’s a real visual feast to see how the trunks have been dissected and re-presented, and Singapore is one of only a handful of stops (including Paris, London and New York) on this travelling showcase, so we’re not exaggerating when we say this is a must-see (a key highlight of the show is a trunk which is a record-player that comes with its own sound-proof room.)
Come year-end, all 200 trunks will be up for auction at Sotheby’s, with proceeds going to various charities.
On now till April 27, from 10am to 10pm, at Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza
