Marc Jacobs Talks Louis Vuitton Exhibition | The Louvre Display Won’t Be Boring

Posted on: Jan 13

Marc Jacobs ClappingMarc Jacobs promises not to bore us with his upcoming Louis Vuitton exhibition at the Louvre's Musee des Arts Decoratifs.

The designer says there's "nothing more boring" than an educational fashion display housed in a museum, or gazing at clothing draped over mannequins or stuck behind glass cabinets. So Jacobs show won't feature those dull elements, but what will we see?

Marc Jacobs told The Telegraph that the exhibition will span two of the museum's floors. The first will be devoted to Marc Jacobs' modern designs for Louis Vuitton, while the second will pay tribute to the classic pieces created by company founder Louis Vuitton. While I appreciate the work that Jacobs has done, I'm much more interested in that historic collection which includes one of the label's earliest signature trunks dating back to 1869.

Louis Vuitton's runway consultant Katie Grand will serve as the exhibition's creative consultant, so we can expect it to be very true to the label's vision. She'll oversee the design work of Sam Gainsbury and Joseph Bennett, who know fashion after working as the production designers for many runway shows.

The display titled "Louis Vuitton - Marc Jacobs" will open on March 8, the final night of Paris Fashion Week and the same night as Louis Vuitton's fall 2012 runway show.
