The journey inside Louis Vuitton X begins in Room 1, “Louis Vuitton: As Seen by…” Contemporary portrait artists Yan Pei-Ming and Alex Katz capture the beginnings of Monsieur Louis Vuitton, at a mere 16 years old in the year 1837, when he began his journey as an apprentice to a well-known layetier-emballeur (trunk maker and artisan). The journey ends in Room 10, “ArtyCapucines: Six Visions of a Contemporary Classic;” the House’s most recent collaboration with artists Alex Israel, Urs Fischer, Jonas Wood, Nicholas Hlobo, Tschabalala Self and Sam Falls, who bring to life six different iterations of the iconic Capucines bag.
