Louis V? Oui, oui. Louis Vuitton's exclusive Savoir-Faire experience, featuring the Maison's most exceptional pieces, just landed in L.A. The by-appointment-only event is being held at Goya Studios and will be open from Sept. 9 to 25.
Featuring a carefully curated selection of iconic hard-sides trunks, Objets Nomades, special lifestyle accessories, and exotic handbags (of course), the immersive pop-up is a continuation of Maison's tradition of regional Savoir-Faire activations.
Attendees will discover bespoke items and rare offerings that highlight Louis Vuitton's legendary craftsmanship while getting the chance to observe, first-hand, the dedication and hours of input that each piece requires to carry on the French fashion house's heritage.
The experience will transport observers to a variety of cinematic settings, including a Parisian apartment rendered in Hollywood's iconic black and white film era, an homage to a historic Louis Vuitton workshop, and an immersive seaside escape with waves that change depending on the time of day. Each of the three stages reveals a sophisticated selection of pieces from the Maison's most exclusive métiers. We can't choose between the Parisian apartment with several iconic gowns like those worn by actresses Lupita Nyong'o and Regina King, or the seaside setting with Louis Vuitton picnic basket and blanket nestled on the sand.
Hard-sided trunks are tastefully placed alongside Objets Nomades furniture and décor. Whatsmore, Damien Langlois-Meurinne and Tokujin Yoshioka's Objets Nomades will debut for the first time in the U.S.
Guests can also expect wearable pieces, such as handbags in exotic leathers and recherché watches, incorporated throughout the space. Also on display will be classic bag styles reimagined in unique finishes and dazzling colors, pieces designed by L.A. artist Alex Israel, and select pieces from the new Louis Vuitton x Fornasetti collection.
Founder of the Maison Monsieur Louis Vuitton will also receive tribute and a celebration of his bicentennial birthday through a display of his history, heritage, and artistry.
