Following showcases in Hong Kong, Los Angeles, and Melbourne, Louis Vuitton‘s Time Capsule exhibition has arrived in the Land of the Morning Sun, one of the luxury brand’s most important markets. The stopover at Hankyu Umeda department store in Osaka presents a curated selection of rare products from Louis Vuitton‘s vast archive, providing its fanbase an insight in the brand’s history and product development since its inception in 1854. The Time Capsule show has a themed setup, and is accompanied by immersive visual imagery, and last but not least, a number of the brand’s craftsmen who’ll demonstrate the technology of traditional leather manufacturing. Also, in honour of the 40 years since the first store opened in Japan, objects from the past to the present celebrating the the relationship between the brand and Japan will also be on display. An adjacent book store is stocked with accessories such as the Gift Collection, as well as books on art, architecture, fashion and travel published by Louis Vuitton (on through Aug 1). Location: Hankyu Umeda, 8-7 Kakuda-cho, 9th floor (Umeda).
