Couture collection as gallery exhibit: Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris
Fashion themes have drawn record crowds to art institutions. Fashion lovers will have the chance to enjoy all over the world a series of exhibition with sartorial focus.
‘There’s a loyal following — besides the fact that fashion is fashionable. There’s something very intimate about clothes,’ Pamela Golbin, chief curator at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris, explained to WWD.
Les Arts Décoratifs will be the March opening of Marc Jacobs Louis Vuitton. This exhibition tells the stories of two men, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs (artistic director of LV), and will highlight their contributions to the fashion world. The exhibition will try to answer to some questions like: How did they succeed in taking the pulse of their respective periods to innovate and take an entire industry forward? How did these two personalities, each with their own language, appropriate cultural phenomena and codes to write the history of contemporary fashion?
It will also be homecoming for Louis Vuitton, who set up shop only a stone’s throw from the Louvre, the home of his first great patron, Empress Eugénie. Over a century separates Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs, but both come together in the excellence of their creativity, says the official statement.
