What to expect:
"This exhibition tells the stories of two men, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs(artistic director of LV), and will highlight their contribution to the fashion world. How did they succeed in taking the pulse of their respective periods to innovate and take an entire industry forward? How did there two personalities , each with their language, appropriate cultural phenomena and codes to write the history of contemporary fashion? An analysis rather than a retrospective, this parallel Vuitton-Jacobs comparison will provide new insight into the fashion system during its pivotal periods, beginning with its industrialization and ending with its globalization, focusing also on the its artistic professions and crafts, tehcnological advances, stylistic creations and artistic collaborations. It will also be homecoming for Louis Vuitton, who set up shop only a stone's throw from the Louvre, the home of his first great patron, Empress Eugenie. Over a century separated Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs, bit both come together in the excellence of their creativity"
