For Louis Vuitton, “the art of travel” is the French fashion’s house unofficial tagline but on Friday the house plans to embark on its most epic quest yet—a journey through the storied house’s history books. The traveling exhibition titled, “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez-Louis Vuitton,” has made its way to Lower Manhattan with an expansive show that takes up two floors in the former New York Stock Exchange—all appropriately packed with trunks, monograms, artist collaborations and the like, all selected by historian Olivier Saillard.

Upon entering the space, the usual suspects and most important things are lined up front and center. The exhibition is sorted into categories including: automobiles, train travel and celebrities—everything you’d expect to fawn over. The die-hard fans will be sure to travel to the enthralling exhibit before it closes on January 7, 2018. Be sure to head to 86 Trinity Place, where you will find the very best from Ghesquière, Jacobs and Mr. Vuitton himself.
