Seen & Heard: Louis Vuitton Exhibition

••• Louis Vuitton’s “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” exhibition opens tomorrow at 86 Trinity Place (the American Stock Exchange Building). “The exhibition retraces the adventure of the House of Louis Vuitton from 1854 to the present. A story told through the portraits of its founders, as well as those who today are inventing the Louis Vuitton of tomorrow.”  You can reserve the free tickets here; guided tours and audioguides are available. Below: a blurry screenshot from a video showing a glimpse of what to expect. I’m going to see if being inside the building is interesting; I’ll report back.

••• Besides “Billions” shooting here last weekend, we also have “Succession” today (W. Broadway/Duane) and, on Friday, “Law & Order: SVU” (Franklin/Varick) and “Bull” (Broadway/Franklin). Enough already!

••• David Weeks Studio and Moroso are having a sample sale at 38 Walker tomorrow (noon-7 p.m.) and Saturday (noon-5 p.m.); “large selection of lighting and furniture up to 70% off.”

••• Community Board 1 sent this out, but I don’t think it originated with them: “Communities across the city will remember, resist, and rise together. https://sandy5.org/. Five years ago, Superstorm Sandy took lives, destroyed homes, and flooded subways. Like in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, the people hit hardest by Sandy were the poor, people of color, immigrants, and our already most vulnerable communities. New York’s elected officials must protect us from the impacts of climate change and lead a just transition to a renewable energy economy. We cannot wait any longer. On October 28, we will assemble and march over the Brooklyn Bridge, and then rally at the Alfred E. Smith Houses in Manhattan.” Do you ever get the impression that there are people who just like to march?

••• CB1 also sent out this info about an offer for local businesses and organizations.

  1. I strongly recommend the Louis Vuitton exhibition – went to the press preview today. Whether you’re interested in the history of fashion, or how travel influenced design, or just enjoy truly outstanding craftsmanship I think there’s lots to see for everyone. LV did an amazing job transforming the building, which I’d never been in, despite living a stone’s throw from it for most of my life. And it’s free!
