Beverly Hills ‒ Louis Vuitton unveils Louis Vuitton X, an immersive journey through the House’s 160-year history of creative exchanges and artistic collaborations.
The exhibition marks the world premiere of the Artycapucines collection,
original Capucines bags reinterpreted by six leading contemporary artists.
Across the two floors of the iconic 468 North Rodeo Drive building in Beverly Hills, Louis Vuitton X draws on over 180 items from Louis Vuitton’s archives and scenography to trace the House’s pioneering journey. The exhibition brings together a remarkable collection of early twentieth-century special-order trunks; beautiful art deco perfume bottles and window displays commissioned and designed by Louis Vuitton’s grandson, Gaston-Louis; iconic Monogram bags reworked by renowned artists and designers, such as Karl Lagerfeld, Rei Kawakubo, Cindy Sherman and Frank Gehry; and original collaborations and commissions by artists including Yayoi Kusama, Richard Prince
and Zaha Hadid.
Louis Vuitton X culminates with the Artycapucines collection, the House’s new
and exciting collaborative project with six leading contemporary artists:
Sam Falls, Urs Fischer, Nicholas Hlobo, Alex Israel, Tschabalala Self and Jonas Wood.
Named after the street on which Louis Vuitton opened his first store, all artists have transformed the Capucines bag by combining their skills and imagination with the unparalleled artisanal savoir-faire of Louis Vuitton’s ateliers to create limited-edition original works.
Louis Vuitton X is a rich and engaging experience and an exhilarating exploration of Louis Vuitton’s ongoing dialogue between the past and the future, heritage
and modernity, savoir-faire and innovation.
