From April 4 to April 27, Singapore will be the first stop of Louis Vuitton’s global travelling show – 200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries: The Exhibition – which is open to all at the Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza. Part of the brand’s celebration of its founder’s 200th birthday, the project gets a panoply of names from across creative industries to each put their spin on the label’s steamer trunk (the Maison – and monsieur Vuitton’s – first product).
Among them: former creative directors Marc Jacobs and Kim Jones – both of whom have roped in game-changing collaborators from their time at Vuitton; streetwear bigwigs like Nigo (who’s also the present day Kenzo artistic director) and Samuel Ross of A-Cold-Wall; and even celebrity ambassadors BTS.
Here, a preview of some of the creations you can expect at this “trunk show” and the personalities behind them.
