    Louis Vuitton will open its doors to the Townhouse, a spectacular retail space set in the heart of London’s Selfridges, on Friday November 8. And we are beyond excited…

    Built over three inter-connecting floors, Louis Vuitton invites shoppers to splash their cash in one of the most theatrical and architecturally-striking shopping spaces we’ve ever laid eyes on.

    Designed by French born, Japanese-based designer Gwenaël Nicola, it’s safe to say the Townhouse promises a browsing experience like no other…

    Upon entering, visitors are greeted with a gigantic spiral structure jutting up through the ceiling of the historic department store where a head-spinning revolving elevator hides inside. Yep, you heard us right.

    The Ground Floor presents leather goods and the fashion house’s first Digital Atelier – a cutting-edge interactive table where shoppers can learn about the history and craftsmanship of the heritage brand – while the First Floor will hold, for the first time ever, the full Men’s ready-to-wear collections from famed Men’s Style Director, Kim Jones.

    Womenswear is homed on the Second Floor amidst lashings of bronzed glass, fabric walls and glossy furniture creating a sophisticated salon perfect for indulgent Saturday afternoon shopping.

    The opulent sounding Shoe Salon has also got us mentally salivating, as well as the exclusive pre-launch of De Libran’s Spring Summer 2014 Icônes collection.

    We have a feeling that once we’re in, we’ll never want to leave…

    Louis Vuitton’s Townhouse opens its doors on Friday November 8.
