Louis Vuitton’s Time Capsule exhibition provides a short journey through the 160-year history of the maison. After traveling around the world, from Singapore to Berlin, the exhibition will reside in Toronto from September 7th to the 30th, celebrating the fashion house’s 35th anniversary in the city.
The exhibition visualizes how Vuitton has changed through the ages while staying true to its heritage. It also highlights the brand’s approach to innovation and solving the common problems of travel. For example, one of its earliest 19th century trunk designs doubled as a foldout bed.
Six rooms are curated around different themes, with the “Magic Malle” room showcasing the iconic LV trunk. In “Louis Vuitton and the Arts,” there are pieces from various collaborations, including an Audio Technica record player and pieces from the Jeff Koons collection.
The exhibition is free and runs Monday to Friday 9am–9pm and weekends 11am–9pm, at Union Station, Sir John A. MacDonald Plaza, 65 Front St W.
