Louis Vuitton Crafting Dreams

A stunning home perched above the Bel-Air Country Club is the perfect backdrop for “Crafting Dreams Los Angeles,” a showcase of Louis Vuitton collections, collaborations, and of course, craftsmanship. Visitors take in a multi-level view of LA as they walk through installations of Objets Nomades; hardsided trunks (one adorned with Kusama’s signature dots); LV Sporting pieces; fine jewelry; watches and “one of one” leather goods. Highlights include a preview of the Cabinet of Curiosities by Marc Newson, with its 19 modular cubes; a Flower Tower light designed with the Milan-based design duo Atelier Biagetti and a whimsical handheld hardsided piece called the Malle Maison Vendôme, in the shape of the Louis Vuitton store on Place Vendôme. A Red Carpet Room evokes Hollywood glamour, with a display of gowns worn by Ana de Armas and other leading ladies; while innocence presides over the Louis Vuitton Baby Collection salon, and edginess is front and center in the “White Canvas: LV Trainer in Residence” exhibition, with its three limited editions of the iconic LV Trainer. As befits the name of the event, visitors will enjoy a unique opportunity to craft their own bespoke items. Craft those dreams by appointment only, through May 3.
