In partnership with Louis Vuitton.
Calling all fashionable travelers: Indagare is thrilled to announce two VIP private tours of New York City’s Louis Vuitton show,“Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” (or “fly, sail, travel”). A trailblazing designer, Louis Vuitton is largely responsible for making journeys, from the 19th century until today, highly glamorous affairs.
On December 13 and 14, 2017, Indagare members and subscribers will get a behind-the-scenes look at this new show, touring with a Louis Vuitton Ambassador and fellow friends of Indagare.
Volez, Voguez, Voyagez
Born into a family of modest means in early 19th-century rural France, Vuitton quickly made a name for himself among Paris’s elite with his impeccably made travel trunks. Nearly 200 years later, the designer is still lauded for his iconic travel goods—not to mention the beautiful clothing and accessories that sparked a multi-billion-dollar fashion brand.
Curated by Olivier Saillard, the historian and curator behind exhibitions at the Museum of Fashion in Paris (palaisgalliera.paris.fr) and London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, the exhibit takes visitors on a visual journey through The House of Vuitton’s legacy. Comprised of ten ‘chapters,’ the showcase is made up of several thematically decorated rooms; one is styled as an ocean liner and features nautical-style clothing and travel goods; another room contains aviation-inspired apparel. Souvenirs and documents from the archives such as hats, clothing and handbags (from timeless, Belle Époque accessories to Taylor Swift’s ultra-modern Met Gala dress) are on display. And of course, there are dozens of signature-printed travel trunks—the centerpiece of the LV brand. Volez, Voguez, Voyagez offers free admission. 86 Trinity Place, open through January 7th, 2018; louisvuitton.com
