To celebrate its founder’s bicentennial birthday, French high-end luxury fashion house Louis Vuitton has launched an exhibition  of original and unique pieces that were created by 200 visionaries and friends of the Maison in Singapore.

While the collective tribute of 200 trunks, which includes BTS, Nigo and HYPEBEAST, kicked off its world tour in December 2021 in Asnières, near Paris, it will move to Singapore, Beijing, Tokyo, New York and London throughout 2022.

This project is purely a philanthropic undertaking, as the artists have vowed to direct their fees entirely to 15 NGOs across 13 countries, with a mission to uplift the youth through their creative endeavours. So far, US$2.1 million has been raised. More so, all the trunks and derivatives will be sold under auction by Sotheby’s when the exhibition ends in December 2022.

Speaking about the initiative, Faye McLeod, Louis Vuitton’s visual image director, said, “This project has always been about creativity, a real tribute to Louis’ ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit. We get to see how such a cross-section of talents answered the same brief while also taking a moment to appreciate the man himself.”

Here’s what the Louis Vuitton exhibition in Singapore includes — dates, venue and more

About 200 Trunks 200 Visionaries: The Exhibition

The visionaries come from various disciplines, including art, culture, science and sport, and humanitarian causes. They were invited to personalise the iconic Louis Vuitton trunk in the form of a metaphorical blank canvas measuring 50 x 50 x 100 cm.

As a result, this prestigious invitation brought 200 amazing transformations in the form of vessels “transmitting dreams and desires, abstract concepts and artistic expressions.”

The exhibition is categorised into two rooms. The first room acts as a link between the past and the present, with a checkerboard carpet housing the “Magic Malle” and LED screens, and representing the blank canvas of the 200 visionaries.

The trunks in the second space take you to the future. The creations are stacked on wooden boxes that are arranged at different heights.

LV’s 200 Visions then continues on the ground floor, creating a dreamy, visual experience in a secret room, which has British DJ and producer Benji B’s jukebox trunk with 200 peppy songs.

The sixth-generation descendent, Benoit-Louis Vuitton, will be visiting Singapore for its inaugural debut. The exhibition will be held at MBS Event Plaza on 4 April 2022 from 6.00 pm to 10.00 pm and from 5 – 27 April from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm.
