LOUIS VUITTON & Exhibition

With the new LOUIS VUITTON & Exhibition in Tokyo, the Maison celebrates over 160 years of creative exchanges and artistic collaborations.

Tracing a rich and pioneering journey, the exhibition draws particular focus to the enduring admiration and inspiration between Louis Vuitton and a multitude of celebrated Japanese artists and acclaimed personalities such as Kansai Yamamoto, Fragment’s Hiroshi Fujiwara, Yayoi Kusama, and Nigo®. From the tradition of trunk-making to the invention of Takashi Murakami’s “Superflat” art, LOUIS VUITTON & celebrates savoir-faire and innovation, connecting Paris to Tokyo across a universe of talent and through time.
