Last Friday, August 6th, Louis Vuitton opened its first location on the westside of Los Angeles. Located at the newly renovated Santa Monica Place, between 3rd Street Promenade and the world famous Santa Monica Pier, this marks the 137th Louis Vuitton in North America.
With a surface area of 4,139 square feet, Louis Vuitton Santa Monica will carry an array of women’s and men’s leather goods from the house’s traditional and innovative collections of luggage and city bags, as well as the very latest in shoes, belts, sunglasses, scarves and other accessories. Prominently located on the central plaza of the ground floor, Louis Vuitton Santa Monica boasts a sweeping curved glass façade and beautiful all wood flooring. Filtering in natural light through sheet fabric panels, and utilizing a mixture of cumaru, zebrono and anigre woods, Louis Vuitton’s newest North American location captures all the natural warmth and beauty of its local environs.
“Santa Monica is energized with all the creativity, innovation and artistic excellence that Louis Vuitton stands for,” said Charles Delapalme, SVP of Louis Vuitton’s Western Region. “We are proud to make it our newest home in Los Angeles.”
The interior design allows for three distinct spatial experiences, giving unique character to each of the different product universes. The women’s area has a Louis Vuitton “bag bar”, a vertical display of small leather goods, and a dedicated accessories space. This leads into an elegant lounge area showcasing women’s shoes as well as rare and exceptional products, while the men’s area houses leather goods, shoes, accessories and both new and iconic luggage.
Louis Vuitton Santa Monica is open Monday – Thursday 10:00am to 9:00pm, Friday – Saturday 10:00am to 10:00pm, Sunday 12:00pm to 6:00pm.
