The world’s first Louis Vuitton hotel and their largest boutique ever
OMG! Big news for our Louis Vuitton lovers; the luxury house is planning to turn their headquarters into a hotel! CEO Micheal Burke explained that this will take a while, but for sure, we think it’s worth the wait. You could literally dream away in the headquarters of Louis Vuitton, who wouldn't want that?!
According to Burke, the headquarters in Paris' second arrondissement, near the famous Pont Neuf, will undergo an extensive renovation over the next decade. The world's largest Louis Vuitton store and a hotel will be located on the sprawling grounds. While Burke predicts his vision for the brand's headquarters could take 10 to 15 years to complete, Louis Vuitton has already taken the first steps in transforming the building into a cultural hub.
Starting this week, Louis Vuitton will host an experimental installation called "LV Dream," which includes a 20,000-square-foot pop-up showcasing Louis Vuitton's many artist collaborations, including Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, and Yayoi Kusama. The space, will open to the public for a year from December 12, it's expected to be Louis Vuitton's largest retail space.
Burke says the event space will “most probably” be turned into Louis Vuitton’s largest store, while the hotel is expected to open elsewhere in the building.
