Shanghai, China – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
The grand opening of the first Louis Vuitton Maison in Shanghai at Plaza 66 will be the 16th Maison worldwide and will further bring together the style and elegance of Louis Vuitton under one roof.
Specially designed by architect Peter Marino, new design elements and custom-made furniture come together to create a unique and innovative Louis Vuitton experience.
Formed over four floors, the Louis Vuitton Maison will house leather goods, ready-to-wear fashion for women and men, luggage, watches, jewelry and rare and exceptional products. Specially commissioned artworks by Chinese and international contemporary artists will be seen throughout the Maison, highlighting Louis Vuitton’s association with discovery.
On July 19, the Louis Vuitton Express came to a halt on the famous Bund in Shanghai. When its doors opened, elegant models entreated from refined carriages, clad in elongated A-line silhouettes of richly layered and jewel-embellished clothing, each accompanied by exquisite suitcases, portmanteaux and handbags in celebration of the house’s history of elegance, creativity and love of travel.
