A Journey Through Design: From São Paulo to Seoul

This captivating journey reveals Louis Vuitton's unique approach to retail design, where each store is a bespoke creation tailored to its specific location and cultural context.

Beyond Bricks and Mortar

Unlike conventional retail chains, Louis Vuitton eschews a uniform design aesthetic. Instead, the brand commissions renowned architects to create unique buildings with individual "skins" that evoke emotions and resonate with the surrounding environment. As Paul Goldberger aptly states, "None of Louis Vuitton's stores are designed to fit into the urban context in any conventional way... They are buildings designed to have the same appeal as the Maison's products, elevated to civic scale." These architectural narratives create a powerful visual experience, drawing customers into the world of Louis Vuitton luxury.

"Louis Vuitton Skin: Architecture of Luxury" isn't just about showcasing beautiful buildings – it's a celebration of radical design. The book features stores that push boundaries and redefine the concept of retail space.
