outside, a gigantic explosion of louis vuitton‘s monogram icons takes over the stores’ frontage in a full spectrum of colour, setting the tone for the in-store experience. louis vuitton’s 17,500 sq ft london maison has been completely reimagined, starting from its reconstructed exterior to its new generation of interiors.

inside, a double-height gallery-cum-shop, featuring 43 artworks throughout — from 25 artists including site-specific commissions from sarah crowner, jim lambie, josh sperling, farhad moshiri, and matt gagnon. there are also installations from james turrell, andreas gursky, alex katz, tracey emin, among others.

 

on the lower ground floor a colourful space dedicated to men’s ready to wear and shoes by louis vuitton men’s artistic director virgil abloh is overlooked by gursky’s ‘dusselstrand.’ on the third floor james turrell’s light installation tall glass (2009), an immersive led screen which turns from purple to yellow, orange and red, perfectly encapsulates the meditative mood of the store.
