Volez Voguez Voyagez (Fly, Sail, Travel)  is a visual journey through the history of the House of Louis Vuitton from 1854 to the present. Curated by Olivier Saillard and designed by Robert Carson, the immersive exhibition is currently on view at the American Stock Exchange building at 86 Trinity Place in New York City.

Upon entering, an animated train greets visitors to begin the "ride" through the evolution of the brand. Louis Vuitton's journey started when at age 14 he walked for two years from his home village of Anchay on the Swiss border all the way to Paris. While the Louis Vuitton brand may be most closely associated with it's iconic handbags, the travel trunk is the symbolic mainstay in the brand's history.  Designed to unfold as ten chapters, the exhibition features objects and documents from the brand archives along with pieces on loan from the Palais Galliera and the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris.

Volez, Voguez, Voyagez is fascinating an definitely worth a visit if you happen to find yourself in Lower Manhattan. While not everyone can afford a Louis Vuitton bag, the exhibition is free and it runs through January 7. You can book advance tickets through this website. There are both guided and unguided tours. We opted for unguided but were able to get an audio device from which we could call up information on the pieces. Upon exiting, you will be gifted with a limited edition Pintrill created just for the exhibition. Scroll down to get a peek inside the show and see the pin at the end.

  23. What an incredible exhibition. I've always loved LV's origins in their infamous trunks (something I hope to own a vintage version of someday) but I had no idea about the designers actual story. Two years to walk to Paris. Wow. Then again that was pretty common in those days for Europe (and probably worldwide too), to walk for months on end to get to another country. My grandfather used to walk from a small town on the border of Spain and Portugal to Marseille to work for six months every year for twenty years. It's hard to comprehend these days how anyone could do such things. Especially back at a time where there were no paved roads and the world was drowning in wars too. Travel was so anonymous, I wonder if it was better back in those days. Sure you'd walk for months on end, but the landscape would have been so magnificently untouched. And imagine all the different people you'd meet along the way and their stories you'd learn as you travelled together. It would have been so much more meaningful and much deeper an experience than what we are used to today. Geez I've ranted with this one, but this was actually something I continuously contemplated while I was away this year. Hearing so many stories about travellers and traveling by foot to different countries. Like walking for two weeks to go to Spain to buy shoes because it was cheaper and better quality. Amazing!
