Legendary fashion house Louis Vuitton is hosting a free exhibit in Union Station this month.

The Time Capsule Exhibition is a journey that revisits landmark innovations in technology and design through the history of the luxury house.

Traveling from 1854 to the present day, the journey is told using rare and celebrated objects selected from the Louis Vuitton archives.

“As advances in transport have accelerated our ability to travel, Louis Vuitton has responded with imaginative and ingenious creations anticipating the needs and desires of a changing world for over 160 years,” reads a press release from organizers.

The exhibition begins with artisans demonstrating traditional leatherwork skills that remain as relevant today as they have in the past century.

The exhibition then follows a visual timeline of important moments in the Louis Vuitton story, focusing on four key aspects, including the key to the codes, journeys around the world, elegance in motion, and Louis Vuitton and the arts.
