Friday, 04 December 2015 02:33 PM

PARIS (AP) — Fashion powerhouse Louis Vuitton is showcasing its 160 years of know-how in Paris with a new exhibit that explores the history of the famed monogram bags.

The show, "Volez, Voguez, Voyagez" opens Thursday in Grand Palais — a place steeped in history for the house since Vuitton first presented its trunks here in 1900 during Paris' Universal Exhibition.

The exhibit includes 180 pieces spread across nine rooms from the Vuitton archives, including eccentric trunks, age-old beauty cases, leather goods and paintings.

And via video installations, it traces Louis Vuitton's great journey from 1854 till today, through depictions of the maison's founding members, colorful clients and those who still shape the brand today.
