The Louis Vuitton adventure carries on. The second day started very early in the morning, so early that it was still dark outside. We had breakfast in a rush because we were a little bit late – as you probably know make-up and dressing up sometimes can take you a little bit more than usual when you wake up at 7 am and you are almost sleep walking. But after a big cup of cappuccino and a big bowl of fruits the things started to settle down. So we left the hotel and the driver took us to the biggest Louis Vuitton
store on Champs Elysees. And the adventure began…
As we arrived Ydoya, the Client Relations Manager, took care of us and for the next two hours the whole store was only for us! Ydoya made us a tour and told us all about this amazing store that is not only a store, but also an iconic and very special place.
The Champs-Elysées is part of the architectural heritage of Louis Vuitton, for it was here that, almost a century ago, the company commissioned the construction of its first house. Inaugurated in 1914, the building was a fine example of the transition between Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. It seems fitting that Louis Vuitton should now be returning to the Champs-Elysées with an architectural concept that is equally striking – the “promenade”.
The façade of the building couldn’t be modified because it is one of the 5 most visited monuments in Paris and they have to preserve it, but the LV specialists customized and transformed the interior into one of the best places where you can enjoy one of the most amazing shopping experiences.The lovely thing about this place is that it even has a “library” area where you can find books like Tim Walker’s photography book, one of our favorites.
But what we loved most is the luggage room that’s really breathtaking. What’s so special about it? It looks like a semi circle with a huge mirror that creates the idea of a round room with a Louis Vuitton suitcases Tour Eiffel with an umbrella on top of it placed right in the middle of this space.
But the big and unexpected secret of this room is that the iron sticks hanging from the roof altogether have 14 km, the exact distance from the store toAsnières-sur-Seine House. At Louis Vuitton everything happens for a reason!
ères Atelier. There’s no coincidence when you talk about Louis Vuitton. Everything has a story behind and everything happens for a reason.
After the extraordinary visit where we also had the privilege to see the private rooms dedicated to the most important clients and taste some Louis Vuitton chocolate, Lea, the Marketing Assistant Digital & Accessories for Central Europe, the one that made our adventure possible, invited us to Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton
to see the “Romanian Scenes” exhibition.
We were so proud to see the work of 13 Romanian Artists and to learn more about contemporary art, Romanian contemporary art. If you are in Paris and if you wanna admire it too it’s there till January 12nd.
But this was not the end of the journey. We had a coffee break, a very short shopping break and a perfect lunch at Miss Ko.
And in the end one last stop. On Avenue Montaigne at Louis Vuitton Pop-Up store. The “l’Aventure” pop-up store set up is specially dedicated to Louis Vuitton’s longstanding and rich heritage as a purveyor of premium travel accessories, offering a broad range of exclusive luggage for the modern globetrotter.
We had a nice time with a private demonstration of the art of packing, that we really loved, and we discovered that beside the usual premium offerings, Louis Vuitton provides a number of exclusive treats, including a customization service, repair service by skilled experts and artisans among others. Just F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S!
And here ends our adventure in Louis Vuitton world. Two fairytale days spent in the most wonderful way possible. Word and photos are not enough to reproduce the atmosphere, the passion, the tradition, the family, the values and the importance of this brand.
