Louis Vuitton Unveils Tokyo Store
Recently, Louis Vuitton opened its latest flagship store in the
Shinjuku area of Toyko. The french luxury house operates two other
boutiques in the area, but has now added its first street level
The two-story building features women’s bags and accessories on the
1st floor and travel luggage, men’s items and women’s shoes and
pret-a-porter on the 2nd floor. At the center stairwell, a stunning
light sculpture created by Korean artist Do-Ho Suh ties the store
together. Called “Cause and Effect,” Suh’s sculpture is made up of
42,000 clear acrylic resin human figures hanging from a ceiling frame
crafted out of stainless steel and aluminum.
Window displays designed by Sofia Coppola, which were also shown in
the windows of Le Bon Marche Paris in October, are currently on display
Actress Yoko Maki made an appearance during the opening ceremony of
the new store, along with Frederic Grange, company president and CEO of
Louis Vuitton Japan. Grange added, “We decided to invest more into our
Japan operations starting in 2011, and began planning boutiques on
Namiki-dori, Matsuya Ginza, and this new Shinjuku outlet. These three
stores are extremely important to us, and I’m delighted that we were
able to realize them in the space of these two years.”
