On a trip to Paris this summer I caught the Marc Jacobs Louis Vuitton exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs before it ended. The exhibition was over two floors, one devoted to each designer. The purpose of the exhibition was to show the two designers moment of inspiration throughout their career.

The Louis Vuitton floor held a lesson in how he made his monogram a luxurious status symbol, and the Marc Jacobs floor took us through how he transformed the luggage and handbag house into a fashion brand.
