Things To Do

Louis Vuitton Moving!

The stand-alone Louis Vuitton boutique is bidding au revoir to Bal Harbour Shops and saying bonjour to Aventura Mall.

As of July 1st, 2011, Louis Vuitton Aventura  will  be the latest addition to the Maison’s network of stores in North  America  and  dramatically  enhance the Louis Vuitton experience for Miami customers.

The  new  Aventura location will replace Louis Vuitton’s Bal Harbour store, which will remain open through the end of June.

While the temporary store opening in Aventura on July 1st will house a full array  of  product  categories  and  collections, a permanent Louis Vuitton store  at  Aventura  Mall,  adhering  in design to the Maison’s very latest global store concept, is scheduled to open next Fall, 2012. It will offer a considerably  larger  retail experience than ever before to Louis Vuitton’s Miami  customers,  with an internal grand staircase linking the two floors and  a prominent exterior façade. The spacious, exquisitely appointed store will  be  able  to accommodate a full range of leathergoods, ready-to-wear, shoes,  accessories,  watches and jewelry, and serve as an elegant showcase for the savoir faire and creative expertise Louis Vuitton is known for.

“We are delighted to be bringing our Miami home to Aventura,” said Geoffroy Van Raemdonck, President of Louis Vuitton North America. “Louis Vuitton has been an established presence in the region for several decades, and we felt it  was time we were able to respond to the evolving needs of our customers by  offering  them  a significantly enhanced environment. Our new residence will  provide  guests  with the ultimate Louis Vuitton experience, allowing them to enjoy a richer assortment of our collections and product categories in  a magnificent new setting. Louis Vuitton Aventura will enable the Miami community to   experience  all  the  innovation,  artistry  and  creative excellence  this culturally sophisticated city deserves, and which continue to define the Louis Vuitton Maison after more than 150 years.”

Underscoring  Louis  Vuitton’s long-standing relationship with contemporary art,  the  temporary  Aventura location will feature a space dedicated to a rotation  of  work  by  renowned  artists,  created in celebration of Louis Vuitton’s new Miami home.
