Louis Vuitton has reopened a newly designed store spanning seven floors in Tokyo’s Ginza district. Louis Vuitton Ginza Namiki store is reimagined as an artistic dialogue between proficient architects, Jun Aoki and Peter Marino, inspiring wonder both outside and within.
Designed by Jun Aoki, the highly modern exterior represents the reflections of water as a material phenomenon. The façade’s outer panes curve and ripple, creating a three-dimensional effect that is heightened by a dichroic film that produces endless color variations.
Peter Marino’s design brings the building’s organic aesthetic inside with a central staircase of sculptured oak bordered by the glass. Louis Vuitton Ginza Namiki store is furnished with Pierre Paulin and Stefan Leo furniture and decorated with a four-story feature wall showcasing a reinterpretation of Kimiko Fujimura’s painting, Wave Blue Line.
The full women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and leather collections, accessories, jewelry, watches, fragrances, iconic travel sets, Objets Nomades and Louis Vuitton City Guides can be found here. In addition, the store will showcase exclusive pieces, including the Men’s LV Ollie sneaker embellished with pearls and the Boîte Pharmacie Monogram trunk designed in collaboration with kabuki actor, Ebizo. The store experience ends on the top level in Le Café V, where celebrated chef Yosuke Suga collaborates for the second time with the Maison.
To celebrate the opening of the Ginza Namiki store, Louis Vuitton invited Friends of the House and familiar faces. Among the guests were: Takanori Iwata, Suzu Hirose, Ebizo Ichikawa, Rola, Koki, Mackenyu Arata, Dean Fujioka, Takahiro Nishijima, Ai Tominaga, and NIGO.
