After Hong Kong, Bangkok and Berlin, Louis Vuitton’s much-anticipated #LVTimeCapsule exhibition has finally arrived in Singapore. At only its 4th stop in the world so far, you’ll find the ‘capsule’ plonked right outside Orchard Road’s ION Orchard, a befitting space that celebrates the French luxury label’s journey through history and time from the day it was founded in 1854 all the way to present day 2017.
So what you can expect from the exhibition? Amongst many individual rooms, there’s the one called Louis Vuitton And The Arts that showcases some of its more memorable collaborations with artists through the years. For those who were surprised that Louis Vuitton collaborated with Supreme and Fragment in 2017, it wasn’t exactly a first. In the past 20 years, LV has collaborated with greats like Stephen Spouse (Graffiti) to Takashi Murakami (Cherry Blossom, Monogramouflage, Multicolore Monogram) and Richard Prince (Monogram Watercolour) to more recent launches that included the likes of Jeff Koons and Yayoi Kusama.
And at Singapore’s #LVTimeCapsule is where you’ll see some of these sought-after collaboration pieces, from the super rare Aquarelle Speedy to the skateboard trunk from the recent Supreme collab. Now on till 5 November 2017, the exhibition is open 7 days a week from 10 to 10. Admission is free, so make sure you head on down before the time capsule gets transported to another global city.
