Louis Vuitton*

Beverly Hills, California

This 15,900 sq-ft retail store is located on a prime corner of Rodeo Drive and Dayton Way.  The store is comprised of three retail floors, which display leather products, fine jewelry, and designer apparel by Louis Vuitton Paris.  The French Malletier, originally known for their signature monogrammed canvas trunks and luggage, is ever expanding to encompass all sectors of the luxury market.  A common theme in the Louis Vuitton leather goods, the stylized floral motif, appears in many iterations in the stores from exotic wood inlays to Venetian plaster reliefs.  Custom casework perfectly frames the handmade leather goods, shoes, and accessories.  The Beverly Hills store won an Excellence in Design Award from the Architecture Commission of the City of Beverly Hills.  Gruen Associates has also completed over 40 additional Louis Vuitton stores throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.  Each store has unique qualities and is filled with innovative concepts and ever changing designs
