The Global Journey of “Voguez, Volez, Voyagez – Louis Vuitton” Continues With its Arrival in New York City

Curated by Olivier Saillard, “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez—Louis Vuitton” has traveled from Paris’s Grand Palais, to Tokyo, to Seoul, and now it has arrived at the iconic American Stock Exchange Building in New York City(86 Trinity Place), and will open to the public on October 27, 2017.

The exhibit leads visitors through the history of the luxury retail and fashion house founded in 1854 on Rue Neuve des Capucines in Paris, France. In 1896, the company launched the signature Monogram Canvas to prevent counterfeiting. Synonymous with spectacular opulence, ironically the Louis Vuitton brand is one of the most counterfeited brands to date. Louis Vuitton operates in 50 countries with more than 460 stores worldwide through standalone boutiques and lease departments in high-end department stores.

“Volez, Voguez, Voyagez—Louis Vuitton” is free and will remain open to the public from October 27, 2017 through January 7, 2018.

Gabourey Sidibe has teamed up with Refinery29’s Shatterbox Anthology for her directorial debut

Editor’s Notes: Video Content is not appropriate for young children.

The Brooklyn native Gabourey Sidibe, who was raised in Manhattan, has had quite an amazing year. First Sidibe added the title “author” to her resume after penning her memoir, and now, she can officially add the title “director” to her resume with her directorial debut, The Tale Of Four.  Sidibe is best known for her Oscar nominated performance in the 2009 film, Precious.

The Tale of Four was inspired by Nina Simone’s 1966 song, Four Women.  The song written by Nina Simone depicts the day and life of four different types of black women, characterized by the names Saffronia, Aunt Sarah, Sweet Thing, and Peaches.  Over the course of one day, the film follows the lives of a teenaged Saffronia, Sarah, Sweet Thing, and Peaches, exposing the cyclical nature of life and the lasting legacy of slavery and being a black woman.

The short film, like the song, is a story of four black women struggling through the pain and the harsh reality of life while they search for love, redemption, and identity. The film premiered in June at the Nantucket Film Festival.

Refinery29 is thrilled to be showing this Shatterbox Anthology film. Just 7% of 2016’s top films were directed by women. Refinery29 wants to change this by giving 12 female directors a chance to claim their power.  Watch new films every month on Refinery29.com/Shatterbox.

The show featured 70 looks comprised of the brand’s ready-to-wear and haute couture collections.

“I am excited to bring the Spring/Summer 2018 collection to this beautiful and exotic destination. As we continue to build ‘the World of La Perla,’ through the introduction of ready-to-wear, haute couture, shoes, and accessories, I am honored to bring La Perla to this global destination for fashion and luxury,” noted Julia Haart. “We are a fashion house with many homes, and no borders.”

Top runway models including Natasha Poly and Liu Wen walked the show along with local talent. Seated guests including Fan Bingbing and Hu Bing enjoyed a gala dinner at the Grand Colonnade in The Venetian Macao. “This collection shows that our conception of humanity needn’t be static, even for all that makes it immutable and timeless, change is the only way forward,” explains Haart.
