July 12, 2019 Louis Vuitton X, a history of the Maison’s creative exchanges on show in Beverly Hills

Louis Vuitton X is a pioneering journey through the creative exchanges and artistic collaborations that have marked the history of Louis Vuitton. The exhibition takes place in the iconic 468 North Rodeo Drive building in Beverly Hills until September 15th.

Over 180 items from Louis Vuitton's archives and scenography are on display across two floors of the 468 North Rodeo Drive building in Beverly Hills for the Louis Vuitton X exhibition, which opened on June 28th. The immersive exhibition invites visitors to discover Louis Vuitton's ongoing dialogue between past and future, heritage and modernity, savoir-faire and innovation.

The exhibition includes a remarkable collection of early twentieth-century special-order trunks, art deco perfume bottles and window displays commissioned and designed by founder Louis Vuitton's grandson, Gaston-Louis Vuitton. There are also iconic Monogram bags reworked by renowned artists and designers including Karl Lagerfeld, Rei Kawakubo, Cindy Sherman and Frank Gehry.

The highlight of Louis Vuitton X is the premier of the Artycapucines collection, the Maison's latest collaboration with six prominent international artists - Sam Falls, Urs Fischer, Nicholas Hlobo, Alex Israel, Tschabalala Self and Jonas Wood - each of whom reinterpreted the iconic Louis Vuitton Capucines bag. Also featured are original collaborations and commissions by major creators such as Yayoi Kusama, Richard Prince and Zaha Hadid.
