The time capsule exhibition by Louis Vuitton covers a selection of hand picked items from the House's archives, with some dating back to the late 1800s. This exhibition really shows how innovative and complex Louis Vuitton really is; a brand started in 1821 that still has relevance and is at the top of the game is really inspiring. Supplying a platform to walk you through the timeline of landmark moments really allows you to appreciate the elegance in motion. With the appointment of Virgil Abloh as Men's Artistic Designer, it is likely for the brand to keep producing new ingenious creations. The LV time capsule is open from 05.18.2018 - 06.10.2018 and is free of charge located at the Westfield Century City in Los Angeles, CA.
