Spanning across ready-to-wear bags, shoes, textiles, accessories, and more, the collection is rich with natural materials and vivid colours that will surely last you for many seasons to come. Available online and in their St. Tropez store, this is just one of two very exciting initiatives the brand will be reintroducing this year.

Recently opened this week, the luxury house will be welcoming guests to their pop-up restaurant for the second year in a row. With Michelin-starred chef Arnaud Donckele, and head of the Louis Vuitton café Maxime Frédéric at the helm, the pop-up restaurant will be open until October 8th. Bringing in classic motifs from LV By the Pool, from its elegant orange colour scheme and classic seating featuring the tiled monogram of the collection.

LV By the Pool has officially launched and is available at their pop-up at 48 Rue François Sibilli, whilst Arnaud Donckele & Maxime Frédéric at Louis Vuitton is just a stone's throw away at 53 Rue François Sibilli and will be open from May 25th to October 8th.
