Louis Vuitton reopens renovated New Bond Street Maison

THE DOORS to Louis Vuitton’s Maison on New Bond Street have now opened after 14 months of renovations. These renovations will unveil two different building combining in one new location, reimagining its newly reconstructed exterior and interior designed under New York-based architect Peter Marino.

Entering the store, just to your right is the first of several monumental volumes cut into the space by Marino – more are revealed as you explore floors above. The space is home to a dramatic double helix shape staircase, worked as a sculpture with an offset centre, which is crafted from cerused oak. With new glass details, giving the space a cool contemporary element, the left leads up to women’s ready to wear and the right leads down to menswear on the lower ground.

Artworks seen displayed around the store include Josh Sperling’s Bingo Bongo Bango, 2019 and Chris Martin’s Golden Age (for Harry Smith), 2018. On the ground floor, a giant architectural space opens up the whole of the womens-wear universe. Above the leather goods hang Donald Moffetts’s Lot 050416 (Chartreuse), 2016 and sits Aaron Curry’s Fkilz, 2012. There is also a neon by Tracey Emin.
