Paris Themed Trunk by Francesca Sorrenti

Enter the former Barney's building--currently clothed in pink, orange, yellow, red and blue stripe--and surround yourself with a celebration of creative ingenuity. 200 trunks with lights, labels... and even Legos... are slowly reveled as guests travel down dark corridors into mirrored, boldly colored, ominously dark or brightly lit rooms. In celebration of Louis Vuitton's bicentennial birthday, 200 trunks designed by the world's most iconic visionaries--whether architect, artist, musician, makeup artist or outspoken personality--are on display in 200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries: The Exhibition. Keep reading for a look inside... 

Situated at the Old Barney's Building

After ten months of international travel (France, Singapore, Los Angelos), LV's 200 Trunks, 200 Visionaries: The Exhibition makes a fourth and final stop in New York. The installation spans 4 floors with 2 floors of exhibition space, a reincarnated Fred's x Louis on the 9th floor and an interactive "residency" space in the Lower Lobby. Each room is completely different from the last, and visitors young and old will appreciate the history and precise level of detail encapsulated in each one. Once the show closes, the trunks will be auctioned off, with proceeds donated to charity. Visit the exhibit at 660 Madison until December 31st. Highly recommend a fly by when you're out touring the Holiday windows!
