A very luxurious time capsule

Moving on swiftly from Lugano to Madrid, the sunshine has followed us during our entire two weeks of spring vacation. Just as we were getting used to opening the shutters onto blue skies and sunlight, today the heavens opened up and it was the perfect excuse to hit the museum.

Thanks to Louis Vuitton's Time Capsule we spent a morning of imaginative time travel through a visual journey while enjoying the artisan craftsmanship and heritage of the brand.

We toured the exhibition with Pablo our charming guide who explained how the Time Capsule demonstrated ways in which Louis Vuitton had anticipated the needs and desires of a changing world over 160 years. As advances in transport continue to accelerate our movement around the world, so does Louis Vuitton address new challenges faced by travellers with imaginative and ingenious creations.

Travelling from the House’s beginnings in 1854 to the present day, the story was told using rare and celebrated objects selected from the Louis Vuitton archive.

An absolute must for Paris shopping: parapluie avec sac-à-dos!
Back in 1996, LV commissioned several artists to celebrate the centennial of the Monogram Canvas. This rucksack was created by Spanish designer, Sybilla.

The question is: who will open the Time Capsule when the time has come?
