Located at 2 Place Vendôme, Louis Vuitton’s Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme marks the iconic brand’s return to their roots. The store opened on October 4 and now features the full Louis Vuitton repertoire– travel accessories and luggage, ready-to-wear, jewelry, watches, leather goods, shoes, fragrances, accessories, plus artisanal workshops. This store marks a return to the location where the young Louis Vuitton opened his first store over 160 years ago.
It was way back in 1854 that Louis Vuitton opened his store at this Vendôme location.
This store finally brings all of LV’s myriad offerings together under one roof.
The space showcases some fabulous artwork. There are 33 contemporary works, some of them specially commissioned for the site, including creations by Laurent Grasso, Yan Pei Ming, Stephen Sprouse, Serge Alain Nitegeka and Paul Nabulumo Namarinjmak.
Objets Nomades – a collection of travel and home objects by renowned designers – will for the first time be available on a permanent basis at the Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme.
A space on the second floor has been allotted to private viewings of products. The Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme also features two working ateliers, the Atelier Haute Joaillerie and the Atelier Rare & Exceptionnel, where VIPs can explore and customize their own LV pieces.
Architect Peter Marino was enlisted to return the buildings to their former glory. The old fashioned exterior is beautiful but the interior is contemporary and full of light.
