Louis Vuitton has opened its temporary location in Miami’s Design District. The temporary store will be replaced by a permanent location in the heart of the Design District in 2014. The store features a mural on the façade painted by graffiti writer, RETNA. In his unique and prolific style, RETNA has reinterpreted the iconic name Louis Vuitton in a distinct color palette that echo the playful spirit of Miami.
Also, Louis Vuitton is slated to unveil a collection of foldable furniture and travel accessories at the Design Miami fair this week, WWD has reported. Dubbed Objets Nomades (“nomadic objects,” in English), the 16 items range from a leather hammock with gold-plated fixtures to a futuristic bell lantern with a solar-powered lamp. They are to be unveiled Tuesday at the Louis Vuitton Miami Design District temporary store and showcased and sold there.
Vuitton said the travel objects would be available in the “travel rooms” of some of its boutiques, including New Bond Street in London, Champs-Elysées in Paris, Ometesando in Tokyo, SoHo in New York, Marina Bay in Singapore, Taipei 101 in Taiwan and Plaza 66 in Shanghai.
