We have been writing about collections that inspired by art for a long time. Now, we invite you a travel through an exhibition that opened by a fashion house.
Just a week ago, we have invited you visit Louis Vuitton 2021 Fall-Winter Collection in which exhibited at the Louvre Museum. Collection took inspiration from Ancient Rome and Greek culture, beside when it was exhibited at an art gallery; it almost became an art exhibition. In addition, collection was prepared in collaboration with Italian artistic design atelier Fornasetti. Moreover, we have felt like that we were on a time travel thanks to ancient Rome motifs in designs, and sculptures at gallery. Now, we are writing one more article about collaboration between Louis Vuitton and art; and invite you another travel to Louis Vuitton & Exhibition.
