New Exhibition 'LOUIS VUITTON &' Celebrates the House's History of Collaborations

Featuring handbags designed with Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami and more.

Louis Vuitton has unveiled a new exhibition, LOUIS VUITTON &, celebrating the house’s long history of collaborations. Located at Jing in Tokyo, the presentation puts a particular emphasis on Louis Vuitton’s artistic exchanges with Japanese creators including Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami and Nigo.

Comprised of ten rooms, the exhibit chronicles the house’s early origins and evolution into one of the world’s most established luxury labels. The iconic LV monogram is the subject of multiple areas of the show — one wall is dedicated to Rei Kawakubo‘s re-interpretation of signature Vuitton handbags, while another displays collaborations with Murakami, Stephen Sprouse and Jeff Koons. Garments from past ready-to-wear collection are also on show, drawing attention to men’s and womenswear designed with Kansai Yamamoto, Nigo and Hiroshi Fujiwara.

LOUIS VUITTON & is on view at Jing in Shibuya, Tokyo through May 16.
