Louis Vuitton just celebrated the opening of a brand-new Fifth Avenue Maison. The five-level store had been under refurbishement for months, and underwent a entire redesign by architect --and noted leather daddy-- Peter Marino.
To celebrate the reopening, right before the holiday shopping frenzy begins, the brand has launched a collection of limited-edition objects only available at the Fifth Avenue store.
The exclusive line, inspired by creative director Kim Jones's pre-Spring 2016 collection, includes three new menswear pieces: a "Christopher" backpack, a "Damier" watch, and a new sneaker, the "Front Row," in a winter-ready shade of taupe leather.
A second wave of men’s exclusives is expected to arrive in store in January, adding a jacket, a camo T-shirt, and color variations on the "Front Row" sneakers to the collection.
We recommend you play safe and go get the original today -- the rent can wait.
"Front Row" sneakers, $840; Christopher Epi backpack, $4,330; Tambour Damier Precoll watch, $3,650, all available exclusively at Louis Vuitton Fifth Avenue, 1 East 57th Street, New York. For further information, go to LouisVuitton.com
