Louis Vuitton Series 3 exhibition was certainly a very interesting and rather unique experience. In fact, it wasthe first fashion exhibition of this kind I've ever seen - a form of digital dissection of one man's brain. I went purely for the clothes (and "the white room") - the digital part and all the jazz never really interested me that much. Or so I believed. Until I actually stepped into the first room and found my head spinning. Literally.
According to Nicolas Ghesquiere Series 3 was created as a visual invitation to his mind and inspiration behind Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2015 collection. And if it's true, then the designers grey matter really is quite something - a mix of past and future, old and new, traditions and inventions, full of buzz, noises and plenty of dark corners.
In some way the sensations and sounds reminded me of the Savage Beauty Cabinet of Curiosities - if you saw the McQueen expo, you'd know exactly what I mean. If not - imagine yourself in a small dark space filled with sound, bright lights and constantly changing images triggering your sensors to the point when you feel slightly insane - and you are half way there...
It was certainly a fashion exhibition fit (and fitted) according to the 21st century standards - different, imaginative, digitally enhanced in every possible way and definitely something to remember and worth seeing.
If you are in London, you still got a couple of days to arrange your admission-free visit and, apart from the visual entertainment treat yourself to a couple of Louis Vuitton stickers. Otherwise enjoy the photos and a video featuring Series 3 and short interview with Nicolas Ghesquiere discussing his ideas behind this installation.
