Louis Vuitton has just announced a must-see exhibition, which celebrates the maison's iconic relationship with luxury travel. Set to start in Dubai, the travelling exhibition, aptly titled Time Capsule, will showcase the French fashion house's iconic trunks and interior design pieces selected from the maison's archives. Expect to see a visual timeline of the brand's monogrammed works too that have been demanding the attention of travellers for over 160 years.

The exhibition is divided into six creative concepts: The Keys to the Codes, which celebrates Louis Vuitton's distinctive design features; Journeys around the World, highlighting how Louis Vuitton transformed luxury travel; Elegance in Motion, depicting how the house enables those to travel in style; Icons of the House, a selection of Louis Vuitton's signature creations; Magic Malle, an indepth look at how the trunk began; and the Artisans Room, where visitors can experience Louis Vuitton craftsmen live.
