Louis Vuitton Opens Private Museum Near Paris

Louis Vuitton is opening its second private museum in less than a year. But unlike the monumental Frank Gehry-designed Louis Vuitton Foundation in the Bois de Boulogne on the western edge of Paris, its new venture has a more intimate feel. Dubbed La Galerie, the 6,500-square-foot exhibition space is located on the historic Louis Vuitton grounds in the northern suburb of Asnières-sur-Seine, which also houses the former family home and the workshops where the luxury brand still produces its most exclusive made-to-order items. Inaugurated on Sunday with a garden party, the invitation-only exhibit was curated by Judith Clark, a professor of fashion and museology who has previously worked on shows about brands including Chloé and personalities such as Frida Kahlo and Diana Vreeland.
