La Galeri by Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton is opening its second private museum La Galerie in Paris in less than a year. The inauguration was celebrated in style with a garden party attended by Vuitton face Michelle Williams, the invitation-only exhibit was curated by Judith Clark, a professor of fashion and museology. The 6,500-square-foot exhibition space is located on the historic Louis Vuitton grounds in the northern suburb of Asnières-sur-Seine, which also houses the former family home and the workshops where the luxury brand still produces its most exclusive made-to-order items. Spread over two floors are around 400 objects and documents from the house’s archive of 26,000 objects and 165,000 documents. They range from couturier Paul Poiret’s trunk to items from the Vuitton family’s personal collection, including a pair of 17th-century Venetian women’s platform shoes.louis-vuitton--Louis_Vuitton_480_Asnieres_4_1_DI3
