Louis Vuitton '1'

About this video

After receiving the comission from Nowness, director Christian Borstlap approached Glassworks Amsterdam to create a film celebrating the founder of the world's most recognisable luxury goods brand, Louis Vuitton. The film is currently being screened via a huge specially-designed 6m projection within the Musee des arts Decoratifs in Paris. This film works as part of the Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs exhibition during the Paris Fashion Week celebrations. The animation is a stylised visual journey charting the very beginnings of the brand, started by the visionary Vuitton himself in 19th century Paris, and playfully incorporates references to his own major influnces including the artist M.C. Escher.
