Louis Vuitton Opens Art-Filled Design District Store

Louis Vuitton opened its temporary Design District store on Thursday with a party and the unveiling of a new façade by famous street artist RETNA. Revelers sipped champagne in the store amongst beautiful shoes and handbags and in a huge outdoor lounge that spilled out under the stars onto 40th Street.  The lavish party juxtaposed nicely against RETNA’s work, who was on hand to celebrate his pink and blue outdoor oeuvre. Inside, guests were so wowed by the shop’s dizzying selection of Louis merchandise set upon antique display cases and furniture, they were hard-pressed to believe these were just transient digs while the grand, three story boutique is finished in 2014.
