After more than a year of renovations, Louis Vuitton finally moved back to its newly expanded store at Greenbelt 4.
Take a look at its unique façade inspired by the House’s signature Damier pattern.
Inside, interiors have been transformed to reflect the spirit of travel that Louis Vuitton has always been known for.
The store’s main entrance opens up to a travel area and expansive leather goods section
while few stairs lead to the mezzanine floor dedicated to men’s leather goods, shoes, and accessories.
One of the new features of the store is the addition of a lower floor extension, which houses women’s leather goods, shoes and accessories.
Also on this lower level, for the first time, is a private salon where top VIPs can have the ultimate, sophisticated personal shopping experience in a private ambience.
Louis Vuitton’s celebration began with a ribbon cutting ceremony joined by (L-R) Rhea De Vera-Aguirre, Country Manager of Louis Vuitton Philippines; Jean-Baptiste Debains, President of Louis Vuitton Asia Pacific; Catherine Zobel de Ayala; and Edouard Faure, General Manager for Micronesia and the Philippines.
An in-store cocktail was attended by local celebrities, prominent social personalities, distinguished guests and Manila’s hip and fashionable crowd.
