Steal­ing BEAUTY

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Flash! -

Ryoko Yonekura Louis Vuit­ton cel­e­brated the grand open­ing of its ‘Time­less Muses’ ex­hi­bi­tion with cock­tails at the iconic Tokyo Sta­tion Ho­tel, which for the first time was en­tirely pri­va­tised for a brand event. Guests ex­plored the breath­tak­ing spa­ces, puls­ing with im­mer­sive dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy that al­lowed visi­tors to see the world through the eyes of Louis Vuit­ton’s muses: Eugénie de Mon­tijo, the last Em­press con­sort of the French, ar­chi­tect and de­signer Char­lotte Perriand, nov­el­ist Françoise Sa­gan, ac­tress Cather­ine Deneuve, Kate Moss, and film great Sofia Cop­pola.

Au­da­cious and free-spir­ited, the six women were cho­sen for their in­spir­ing way of life, re­flected in emo­tion­ally driven an­i­ma­tions. Note­wor­thy per­sonal items on dis­play in­cluded Deneuve’s own leather jew­ellery box, Sa­gan’s hand­writ­ten notes, and two Marc Quinn sculp­tures in­spired by Moss.

True to style, mono­grammed as well as Damier-print masks were pro­vided to en­hance the dra­matic feel of the ex­hi­bi­tion. Held up to the eyes, po­larised lenses re­vealed video con­tent on oth­er­wise blank white screens.

Min­gling with the cream of the Ja­panese A-list (think Rinko Kikuchi and Ai Tom­i­naga) were It girls Poppy Delev­ingne, Elis­a­beth von Thurn und Taxis, and Lan­g­ley Fox Hem­ing­way. The evening cul­mi­nated in ex­cel­lent dee­jay sets by Moru, Gildas Loaëc, and Ver­bal.
