In this travelling exhibit, Louis Vuitton's story is told through an exclusive selection of one-of-a-kind objects from the Maison's archives, from 1854 to today. Presented as a thematic itinerary, the exhibit celebrates the strong pioneering spirit that has characterised the Maison since its creation 165 years ago. Focusing on four fundamental aspects: inventions, travel, the art of preserving objects and the icons of the Maison, Time Capsule shows just how visionary Louis Vuitton has been in foreseeing travellers’ desires and needs as everyday means of transportation have drastically evolved over time.
For this Italian edition, one of the special pieces on display is "Boîte Milano", a unique trunk made for the International Exhibition of Decorative and Modern Arts of Paris in 1925. Time Capsule Milan also features modern-day objects such as ready-to-wear creations by the current Women's Artistic Director Nicolas Ghesquière and Men's Artistic Director Virgil Abloh, as well as pieces from Louis Vuitton's Objets Nomades Collection in collaboration with internationally renowned designers such as Patricia Urquiola and Marcel Wanders.
