Louis Vuitton has opened its first boutique in the heart of Venice, by iconic Piazza San Marco.
The new boutique stocks a wide range of women’s and men’s ready-to-wear garments as well as jewellery, footwear and accessories and also houses an intimate salon for private shopping appointments and a bookstore on its top floor.
To celebrate its arrival in Venice, Louis Vuitton will finance the restoration of major pieces of the city’s heritage. Once restored, certain works will be lent to the store’s new cultural space, Espace Louis Vuitton Venezia, and placed on show to the public.
As if that wasn’t enough, Louis Vuitton has also released a new jewellery charm in the Venice store’s honour. A limited-edition carnival mask made from gold and encrusted with diamonds and yellow sapphires, the charm reflects Venetians’ joie de vivre.
