At the Universal Exhibition of 1900, with 48 million visitors, George Vuitton was in charge of the Travel and Leather Goods section. He presented Louis Vuitton’s luggage and bags on a merry-go-round that was the center of attention.

Today, more than a century later, Louis Vuitton has returned to the Grand Palais, in an exhibition curated by Olivier Saillard, the chief curator at the Palais Galliera fashion museum. This show traces the brand’s journey from trunk-maker in 1854 to modern luxury behemoth. On display are classic and unusual trunks, examples of Louis Vuitton’s unparalleled craftsmanship and contemporary items.

The exhibition is open to February 21st. Don’t miss it!
