French fashion brand Louis Vuitton has unveiled an exclusive new exhibition in Los Angeles that fuses haute couture with theatrical style.

Located on the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Rodeo Drive, the Louis Vuitton X’ exhibition is billed as taking visitors on “an immersive journey through the house’s creative exchanges and artistic collaborations.”

The exhibition is spread across two floors of an LA downtown building and features displays that explore the brand’s history as well as showcasing exclusive Louis Vuitton products.

In addition to rooms devoted to current artistic directors Nicolas Ghesquière and Virgil Abloh, the exhibition also boasts a large collection of collaborations from artists and designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Rei Kawakubo, Cindy Sherman, Frank Gehry, Yayoi Kusama, and Zaha Hadid.

With magnetic colours, monogrammed walls and neon signboards, visitors are treated to a visual treat in which to peruse and purchase a selection of ready-to-wear clothes, leather goods, accessories, shoes, fragrances, and books.

Louis Vuitton X will remain open to the public in Los Angeles until 15 September, after which it will embark on a worldwide tour to cities including Paris, New York, Shanghai and Tokyo.
