After travelling to cities like Berlin, Hong Kong, Dubai and Los Angeles, the Louis Vuitton pop up exhibition makes its final stop in Toronto at the Sir John A. Macdonald Plaza by Union Station.
Louis Vuitton has come to Toronto to celebrate its 35th Anniversary in Canada. Using the theme of time travel, members of the fashion line have developed a free art exhibition that explores archived Louis Vuitton products that date back to 1854.
Although the exhibition seems small from the outside, it displays an overall collection of approximately 200 pieces. The capsule holds a variety of fashion works, including classic handbags from 1953, Canine trunks made of copper and the black lace dress actress Emma Stone wore to the 75th Golden Globe Awards.
The showcase is divided into six sections, each room’s layout reflecting objects that fall in line with their own time period.

Like the Artisans’ room, demonstrating the earliest inventions featuring items of hand-craftsmanship, while the final room called the Magic Malle illustrates modernism by colliding fashion with video projections.
Using an artistic approach, the exhibition acts as a way to publicize Louis Vuitton. It gives consumers and fashion-enthusiasts a better understating of how their creations have managed to keep with the fashion industry for over a century.
Sunday “me” time includes luggage aspiration (yes I just decided that’s a thing) at @Torontounion and the #lvtimecapsule . Do it in 15 minutes or 50…whatever time you neeed! Some great insight into the creation and rise of an iconic brand. Also…#goals pic.twitter.com/ETU95Pi5oc
