Louis Vuitton, London


We have all marvelled at the latest (and second) installation at the new Louis Vuitton store along Bond st. here in London, although have you been inside yet? An installation of vintage LV luggage, moving fixtures, digital staircases, hand painted luggage in a glass trunk, so limited in its production that you may possibly be the only person in the world to own one. While way, way out of my affordability - although that doesn't matter as this is what makes these things so special - it does create an incredibly exciting experience. On the first floor is the exhibition space with handmade Adel Rootstein mannequins, painstakingly produced and suspended in front of old style theatrical mirrors which reflect the spectacle around this site. The details, details, details. This site truly is extraordinary. A variety of figures and fixtures give each area its own personality and each delivering the perfect rhythm around the space which in turn are supported with Art installations that would rival the greatest international collections. Can you imagine the high street multiples producing something like this? Certainly not. We would never leave. I don't want to wish time away, however I cant wait for my next luxurious fix from this brand and to share it with you. Judging by the queue outside of this store recently, I guess others cant either. If you haven't been here yet, I can guarantee that you too will be mesmerised.
