Louis Vuitton Series 3 Exhibition - Past, Present, Future

46 Comments

I love a good exhibition.
When I'm not solving maths equations or learning about the stock market, I love to look at a good designer handbag.
Abi informed me that the Louis Vuitton Exhibition for the AW15/16 collection had come to London and that we should view it.
My day was most likely going to be spent eating cucumbers in bed anyway.
Doors close on October 18th and I thought I'd give you all an opportunity to view it from your screens.
So grab a cuppa and maybe even some cake if you're feeling cheeky.
This will be a long one.
 I waited on the bridge for her ladyship to arrive.
The ship landed and after a hilarious reaction and an excited hug we galloped off to the exhibition.
This coat was an absolute steal. I've been looking for the perfect camel coat for 2 years now (I know) and I found this one by accident! I do however plan on customising it but I'll show you later.
With a total of thirteen rooms it was time to get lost.
Time to delve into the brain of Nicolas Ghesquiére.
The first thing I noticed was a sudden change in temperature from the wind machines and the Geodesic dome.
It felt like I was in some sort of futuristic music video. All I needed were some backup dancers and a catchy beat!
I didn't grow up watching generic Disney movies. Instead my family loved James Bond so when I walked through to the first room I immediately thought of him.
Call me Bond, James Bond.
^ I absolutely love this shot! Doesn't her hair look fab?! #hairenvy
At the end of the tunnel is a room with a magical trunk that projects a 360° holographic catwalk. I call this room "Looking into Ghesquiére's brain."
I've never seen anything like this before.
Continuing our journey we entered a laser show!
 The beams slowly began outlining the process involved when designing the Petite Maille bag.
The pieces were combined together.
And then voila, formed this!
Up the stairs is the craft room where workers show you how the bags are made.
It will make you want to buy one.
Workers are trained for a mere 6 months and then are able to start making them.
Talk about a crash course.
At this point we were halfway through the exhibition and I wondered how Ghesquiére was able to rest at night with all these creative thoughts constantly in his mind.
Pure genius!
If you're still holding your cup of tea I'd advice you to put it down because my favourite room will require you to grab some sunglasses.
The all white room. Definitely migraine inducing.
At least she came prepared.
We all knew this was going to happen:
Nailed it!
Leaving the migraine room we were taken to the walk in wardrobe. I need this in my apartment.
An hour had passed and a snack was needed. Conveniently enough there was a mini restaurant inside.
I opted for the aromatic spiced chicken sandwich and a glass of Ruinart brut.
We drank, ate and spoke about boys and our university woes. But mainly boys.

As I mentioned above, the exhibition closes on the 18th so if you have the chance, pop in! You can find the website here.
