The exhibition, which will run from March 9 to September 16, is a presentation of two great characters, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs, and will highlight their contributions to the world of fashion. It pays tribute to the iconic fashion house's eponymous designer, who started out his career as a trunk-maker in 1854, and to the work of designer Marc Jacobs who took over the creative reigns at the luxury label Louis Vuitton in 1997.
