Maison Louis Vuitton Place Vendôme Opens: Louis Vuitton Returns Home

By Brennan Hart

October 4, 2017

The eagerly-awaited Maison Louis Vuitton Place Vendôme debuted this week, marking a return to the historic Parisian square where the luxury brand opened its first boutique over 160 years ago. The stunning, light-filled flagship feels fresh—re-instated and designed by architect Peter Marino. In celebration, Louis Vuitton is releasing an exclusive version of its Capucines bag, featuring a material of shaded metallic crocodile skin and an exquisite two-tone “V” clasp.

The new Maison is now home to an unparalleled collection of contemporary artworks, a few of which were specially commissioned. Artists from 6 continent are represented in the 21 works, including Yan Pei Ming, Stephen Sprouse, Laurent Grasso, Serge Alain Nitegeka, and Paul Nabulumo Namarinjmak.

The second floor of the store is home to all things travel: Louis Vuitton City Guides, travel books, iconic luggage, and (our favorite) the Objets Nomades collection of travel-related objects from designers like nendo, the Campanas, and more. The site also boasts the first-ever hot-stamping desk in its savoir-faire section.

Situated between two classic Parisian townhouses, the Maison is a travel destination featuring the latest from its couture, ready-to-wear, watchmaking, leather goods, accessories, and fragrances as well as two working ateliers: the secluded haute joaillerie and the celebrity haven, Atelier Rare & Exceptionnel.
