Louis Vuitton celebrates the reopening of a newly expanded store at Makati’s premier shopping arcade, Greenbelt 4. The expansion of the store is an affirmation of the Malletier’s confidence in the Philippine retail market.
The Louis Vuitton store now features a unique façade inspired by the House’s signature Damier pattern; a showcase of Louis Vuitton’s flair for combining innovative retail concepts with the mark of savoir-faire. The interiors of the store have been transformed to reinforce the art of travel, the spirit that Louis Vuitton has always been known for.
The store’s main entrance opens up to a remarkable travel area and expansive leather goods section featuring well loved icons and show pieces as seen in the fashion shows.
A few stairs up lead you to the mezzanine floor dedicated to a wide array of men’s leather goods, shoes, and accessories. This season sees the new Damier Infini collection consisting of a men’s weekend bag and a briefcase crafted from embossed calf-skin.
One of the new features of the store is the addition of a lower floor extension. This floor houses the women’s universe featuring leather goods, shoes and accessories. The highlight on this level is a special wall showcasing the brand’s Rare & Exceptional pieces, once again showcasing the brand’s craftsmanship. Iconic bags such as the Lockit and Brea in exquisite crocodile-skin, are on display.
Also on this lower level, for the first time, is a private salon that is dedicated to the ultimate, sophisticated personal shopping experience. In co-operation with Galleria Duemila, a painting entitled “BLOSSOM 1” by acclaimed local artist Roberto Robles is on display in this private salon. This artwork is a celebration of spring and the artist’s personal response to the season as a time for reflection and to re-connect with nature, and adds a special touch to the unique salon. Here the city’s top VIPs can appreciate Louis Vuitton’s special highlights and exclusive offer in a private ambience.
“We are very proud of the expanded Louis Vuitton store in the Philippines. Our business in the Philippines has grown year after year since we opened at the Greenbelt in 2003. This expansion allows us to even better welcome our guests and showcase in the best way, the quality and variety of our products.” said Jean-Baptiste Debains, President of Louis Vuitton Asia Pacific.
This Louis Vuitton store at Greenbelt 4 showcases the brand’s exemplary spirit of travel, artistic tastes, and contemporary luxury.
