«The priority for this scenography was above all to showcase the beauty and rarity of the pieces exhibited. I thus created a light, all-white, transparent setting for them, to accompany Paris and Louis Vuitton's parallel histories.
The itinerary of discovery is punctuated with glimpses into history and memorable events, which accompany us on a journey through the centuries that offers the visitor a highly graphic experience.
We enter the exhibition through a Vuitton trunk, then pass under a giant Monogram flower; we find ourselves on a cruise liner in 1920 and revisit Eiffel Tower as if we were the first visitor..»
