Louis Vuitton 5th Avenue, New York. Window display. [enlarge]
As what I’ve said in my interview for Styleranking few weeks ago, since I was a kid, I really dream of becoming a secret agent like James Bond! I love the rush and excitement. The spying, the breaking in, the shooting, explosion and more! So cool! But if you’re wondering what’s the connection between my secret obsession and Louis Vuitton, well, the photo says it all!
This season, as a whatchamacallum for the launch of the Damier Graphite collection, Louis Vuitton has dressed up their stores, specifically the flagship at Fifth Avenue New York with a really cool heist-like concept. It features two windows with a Damier Graphite bag in a museum-like glass case, surrounded by tons of Big Brother-like security cameras pointing at it. The other window shows the same setup but it’s already broken into, shards of glass on the floor, the bag missing and the security lasers prancing like crazy. I just wish I’m able to view this stunning sight! According to WWD, the concept proved too real for some. Police officers even entered the boutique to investigate the broken glass thinking it was true.
Every Louis Vuitton boutique must have this concept for their window display, check out Oslo’s window:

Thanks to freshmess for this photo! It’s so fun, I wanna change into my spy suit and break in! I wonder what’s in display at Champs-Élysées. Calling my Parisian readers, can you get me a snapshot of the LV Mothership? Thanks a million!
