Tourist Tales: Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs

At the Musee Les Arts Decoratifs in Paris, the Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs exhibition is currently underway until September 12th and is definitely a must see if you have an obsession with vintage Louis Vuitton like myself!  The trunks within the exhibition are from the Louis Vuitton archives and there must be at least 50 of them on display in addition to the amazing dresses rotating and reflected in mirrors.  The exhibition focuses on the history of Louis Vuitton illustrating immaculately preserved products and once upstairs the focus shifts to Marc Jacobs and his enthusiasm for pop culture. Certainly an unusual experience to see the juxtaposition of the brand 'now' and 'then' but most definitely made me walk away appreciating the heritage of Louis Vuitton and the creativity of Marc Jacobs.    

I am absolutely in love with the video above based on the book available to purchase from the book shop.  If it wasn't so heavy I would have bought it!  There are multiple pieces shown in the video that are on display in the exhibition too for instance at the 21 second mark the "Trunk Bed" is opened and on show.
