In partnership with the Dubai Mall, Louis Vuitton presents Time Capsule, a journey through the history of the House that revisits its landmark innovations in technology and design. Travelling from the House’s beginnings in 1854 to the present day, the story is told using rare and celebrated objects selected from the Louis Vuitton archive. Time Capsule demon- strates the ways in which Louis Vuitton has anticipated the needs and desires of a changing world over 160 years. As advances in transport have accelerated our movement around the world, so Louis Vuitton has continued to address new challenges faced by travelers with imaginative and ingenious creations.
The exhibition follows a visual timeline of landmark moments in the Louis Vuitton story, focusing on six key aspects:
1)The Keys to the Codes, those distinctive design features that can be traced back to Louis Vuitton’s very first trunks
2)Journeys around the World, revealing how Louis Vuitton met the demands of new
forms of transport
3)Elegance in Motion, showing how Louis Vuitton has enabled its clients to travel in style
4)Icons of the House, a selection of Louis Vuitton’s most memorable and emblematic creations
5)Magic Malle, symbol of the House, the trunk is where it all began
6)Artisans Room, live experience with Louis Vuitton craftsmen
From the beginning its story, Louis Vuitton has been defined by a pioneering spirit, with distant lands a favored destination. To mark Louis Vuitton’s presence in the Middle East for over thirty years, Dubai is the first destination in the region to host Time Capsule. Just like Louis Vuitton, the city of Dubai embodies the same values of tradition and history all while looking forward to the future. Connecting East and West, Dubai is one of the fastest-growing and dynamic cities in the world, taking strides in sustainability, art, design, music and fashion. Time Capsule is the ideal stage for bringing together Louis Vuitton’s values of travel and innovation.
