LV ft. LV

So on the last day of fashion week I decided to head on over to the Louis Vuitton Series 3 Exhibition to kill some time between shows, and boy I am glad I did! Now I have to say, luxury isn't exactly my fortè, but after visiting the exhibition I have gained a whole new insight into the absolute craftsmanship of Louis Vuitton's creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere. The most astonishing finding was that it takes at least 30 hours by hand to produce the signature miniature trunk (featured in a beautiful pastel pink shade above). With the increasing fast-pace of the fashion industry, it is often unusual to hear the phrase "hand-made" but luxury are very much coining on to this in order to maintain their edge over the "throw-away" high-street. Even if you have no interest in luxury fashion, I would highly suggest visiting this exhibition to soak up the history of the brand, particularly the signature trunk which has assisted infamous explorers in travelling the world.
