Review: Louis Vuitton SERIES 3 Exhibition

20-10-2015   


The free, open to all, Louis Vuitton SERIES 3 exhibition was located at ‘The Strand’ in central London. It showcased the brand’s A/W15/16 collection, which was staged in March and an in depth insight into the creative process and influences of each design.

The designer incorporates the journey between past he embraced and the future. As described on the exhibition flyer: “Series 3 is a sensorial journey, venturing deep into the designer’s soul and an artisan’s heart. An adventure along the emotional corridors of Louis Vuitton.” When I was invited to visit the exhibition with the Dresscodenation (fashion network) team I didn’t have an insight of what to expect as there was not much information shared on the official website. 

The exhibition space had a series of rooms each containing elements of the collection and the designers inspiration behind them. I loved the infinite show, where the catwalk show from the A/W15/16 collection was screened. The set up of mirrors and stairs, which we were allowed the walk around made me feel as though I was present at the catwalk.

A workshop was set up, where a Parisian artisan worked on one of the most popular LV pieces, a small trunk. Gluing the leather and adding all the gold locks on to the trunk a specialist is needed to complete, which takes up to 30 hours on each piece.

The accessories gallery was one of the highlights of the exhibition. The blindingly white room contained the accessories pieces from the show. Near the end we were greeted by a walk-in wardrobe with key pieces from the show all of the items were protected with clear cases.

I absolutely loved the exhibition and if it relocates I would highly recommend a visit.
