Good Times

Fashion (Canada) - - The Market | Moments -

The act of as­sem­bling prized pos­ses­sions in a box to be tucked away for a later date, or even for another set of eyes, seems the height of sen­ti­men­tal­ity. But these are nos­tal­gic times, and Louis Vuit­ton has as­tutely tapped into a so­ci­etal yen for the good old days with Time Cap­sule, the house’s trav­el­ling ex­hi­bi­tion. Timed to co­in­cide with the 35th an­niver­sary of Louis Vuit­ton’s ar­rival in Toronto, the show will spread out over Union Sta­tion’s spec­tac­u­lar Sir John A. Macdon­ald Plaza. It’s a not-so-sub­tle nod to Louis Vuit­ton’s his­tory in lug­gage while show­cas­ing the city’s on­go­ing $800 mil­lion restora­tion to the land­mark École des Beaux-Arts-in­spired struc­ture. The ex­hi­bi­tion, open­ing on Septem­ber 7, will fea­ture six in­stal­la­tion rooms that pull from the house’s archives, each aimed at shed­ding new light on LV’s en­dur­ing mys­tique. The Keys to the Codes Room will look at the dis­tinc­tive de­sign fea­tures of LV’s early cre­ations, while the Ar­ti­sans Room will in­clude live demon­stra­tions of LV crafts­peo­ple at work. Time Cap­sule will also fea­ture a Boîte Chap­man Ele­phant trunk on loan from Cana­dian col­lec­tor Olivier Ben­loulou. The show’s stop in Los An­ge­les in­cluded a black ruf­fle em­broi­dered lace dress that was worn by Emma Stone to the Golden Globe Awards, as well as a leather van­ity train case from 1970 that once be­longed to Lau­ren Ba­call. Word of warn­ing: The time for this show runs out on Septem­ber 30. Ad­mis­sion is free.
