Louis Vuitton, New York


Situated One East 57th St. is the amazing Louis Vuitton store. Having followed this stores schemes for several years they really do produced the most incredible concepts - as one would expect from a flagship. Here the scheme has been designed by students from my own University, at our sister college Central St. Martins College of Art and Design. This is the second scheme designed by the students at the college that I have seen since this store opened and they really are quite stunning. Previously schemes have also been produced by huge artists such as Olafur Eliasson from Denmark and which could be seen across the world. Here the students have used the old solari flap display boards that used to be so widespread at railway stations and airports across the globe before so many now have been replaced by the LED style boards we now see. Anyway, the concept and notion of travel displayed here is quite romantic one, which is in no way a criticism. It is beautifully produced and worth taking a look at.
