After visiting the Louis Vuitton Marc Jacobs exhibition at Le Musée des Arts Decoratifs, we had a tour of the Louis Vuitton boutique in Champs Elysées, also known as “La Maison”. It was fascinating, the relationship between art and fashion was is so strong here. Eric Carlson is the architect that designed the interior and exterior of the shop, with some amazing ideas. For example, the windows are covered with that metal pattern you see above. Depending on the hour of the day, the sun creates shapes of light on the floor of the store that resemble the Monogram print.
At the top of the building, there’s an art gallery that showcases the work of really talented and innovative artists. To go there you have to take an elevator that is completely in darkness, to “clean” your mind after seeing so many different things at the store and enter the gallery with an open mind. It was really effective.
