It all started at Place Vendome, when a young Louis Vuitton opened his first store, 160 years ago. Yesterday, the brand opened the Masion Louis Vuitton Vendome, a grand universe of all things LV.
Tall windows and high ceilings let the light shine on sculpted perfume bottles, glossy watches and fine jewellery. A mezzanine houses the Men’s section, while the first floor has couture and bags that have definitely been on your forever wishlist. Alongside these masterpieces, you’ll find 33 contemporary artworks on display from artists like Laurent Grasso and Stephen Sprouse.
Designed by Peter Marino, the space was once two classic Parisian townhouses that Marino restored. The architect brought back high ceilings, and included light coloured stone, glass and artisanal wall coverings to accompany them. He has also accommodated two ateliers that will create Louis Vuitton’s jewellery from precious stones.
Your credit card is in for a treat.
