Following in the well-heeled footsteps of Saint Laurent and Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton is giving Los Angeles its very own moment in the spotlight. The French luxury brand is bringing Series 2 — Past, Present and Future exhibit to our fair city, making it the first stop in a globetrotting journey for the one-of-a-kind exposition.

“Series 2” is an unconventional look at the creation of a collection, in this case, the brand’s spring/summer 2015 ready-to-wear collection under the direction of designer Nicolas Ghesquière. The exhibit, which will be located in a warehouse space in the heart of Hollywood’s design district at 1135 North Highland Avenue, will feature multiple rooms and interactive displays that walk visitors through the brand’s heritage and history and into the latest collection from Ghesquière.

Guests will enter through a huge LV logo (get those selfie sticks ready) and explore various rooms that highlight the trunks that made Louis Vuitton a worldwide fashion icon, projections of past inspirations and future projects, holograms of archival pieces and more. Guests will conclude their visit with a peek backstage at the show and then be treated to a stunning 360-degree projection of all 48 looks from the collection. Accessories — the brand’s bread and butter — will be on display on 3D printed figures created by artist Marte Mei. No word yet on what the gift shop will have in stock, but we’re sure it’ll be a little bit more than just the usual postcards and art books.

The Series 2 — Past, Present and Future exhibit opens February 6 and will be on display through February 22, when it packs up and heads to Beijing.
