Louis Vuitton's Townhouse will open on November 8 at Selfridges London
Louis Vuitton will be opening its doors to a brand new interactive shopping space in the heart of London's Selfridges on Friday - get ready to meet the Townhouse.
Designed by French born, Japanese-based designer Gwenaël Nicola and built over three inter-connecting floors, it's safe to say Vuitton's architecturally-stunning visual spectacular will offer you a shopping experience like no other.
Upon entering, visitors are greeted with a gigantic spiral structure jutting up through the ceiling of the historic department store, where a head-spinning revolving elevator hides inside. Already feeling a little queasy...
The Ground Floor will whisk you off on a futuristic ride into fashion heaven with the French house's first Digital Atelier - an interactive table where shoppers can learn about the history and craftsmanship of the heritage brand - while the First Floor will hold, for the first time ever, the full Men's ready-to-wear collections from famed Men's Style Director, Kim Jones.
Womenswear is housed on the Second Floor amidst lashings of bronzed glass, fabric walls and glossy furniture creating a sophisticated salon perfect for indulgent Saturday afternoon shopping.
The opulent sounding Shoe Salon has also got us mentally salivating, as well as the exclusive pre-launch of De Libran's Spring Summer 2014 Icônes collection which also lies inside. Could this be the most epic shopping space in the history of retail?
