Last Friday, Louis Vuitton’s new “Louis Vuitton X” made its debut in Los Angeles with a night of celebration hosted by Delphine Arnault and Michael Burke, followed by an evening meal at the Goldstein residence. Open to the public until September 15, the project is an immersive exhibition that takes visitors on a journey through Louis Vuitton’s archive of collaborations and artistic exchanges.
In attendance, guests like Tschabalala Self, Urs Fischer, Jaden Smith, and Laura Harrier became the first to take part in the immersive show, which leads visitors through a series of 10 rooms, each offering a digitally-focused peek into the LV universe.
Showcased are collaborations with artists like Richard Prince and Zaha Hadid; a series of iconic the Monogram bags reworked by designers including Karl Lagerfeld, Rei Kawakubo, and Frank Gehry; installations by creative directors Nicolas Ghesquière and Virgil Abloh; and more. Visitors can also use three Instagram effects and a 3D Snapchat filter, each inspired by “Louis Vuitton X.”
The exhibition and pop-up marks the completion of the house’s Artycapucines collection—a series of reimagined Capucines bags, made in collaborations with artists Fischer, Self, Sam Falls, Nicholas Hlobo, Jonas Wood, and Alex Israel. Held on the top floor of the space, the pop-up features that collection, along with a curated selection of ready-to-wear, leather goods, accessories, and other items, curated by Sarah Andelman.
