Louis Vuitton Tokyo

Louis Vuitton Tokyo Store東京表参道ルイ・ヴィトン店

Earlier this week we introduced one of the amazing boutiques on Omotesando, the quirky Prada Building.

A work from the atelier of Herzog & de Meuron, it is one of the signature buildings in the area.

Another is the Louis Vuitton store farther back towards Harajuku Station.

It was designed by Jun Aoki and recently had its interior done by the peripatetic Takashi Murakami.

At night, it literally stops traffic.

The inside of the store is divided into five "volumes," each designed like Louis Vuitton trunks.
