St Moritz to SeoulThe most spectacular luxury stores in the world
Do you also want to buy the latest designer parts in the appropriate environment? These luxury shops offer you a breathtaking shopping backdrop.
Whether you like to wear a monogram or prefer to celebrate quiet luxury – with designer products, the upscale experience starts with a visit to the shop. From the yurt to the minimalist store – in these stores, the shopping experience is just as special as the product.
In the yurt with Louis Vuitton, St. Moritz
To experience a visit to a fancy boutique, you don’t even have to get on the plane, a train ride to Graubünden is enough. In St. Moritz, Louis Vuitton has set up a luxury shop in a yurt. There you can take a closer look at the latest pieces from the French luxury label and at the same time marvel at a breathtaking mountain panorama.
However, the location is not a permanent store, just a pop-up store. You still have the opportunity for this special shopping experience until April 10th.
In an old swimming pool at Hermès, Paris
Formerly a swimming pool, today a boutique for the most expensive luxury bags in the world. The Hermès shop on Rue de Sèvres in Paris is one of the most impressive boutiques in the world. The shop was opened in 2010 and furnished with impressive wooden sculptures by the architect Denis Montel.
The vending machine by Jacquemus, Paris
For the launch of the new Le Bambino Long bag, Jacquemus made it possible for Parisians to buy the bag day and night. Thanks to the “Jacquemus 24/24” pop-up, the mini-boutique could be entered around the clock. The store is based on a vending machine and works exactly like that.
The interior of the shop is just as pink as the outside of the small store. The fashion designer emphasizes on Instagram that it is important to him that everyone has access to the store and feels comfortable in it. “The idea behind it is to break through the boundaries of the luxury world.”
The pop-up store is no longer there, but the pink PR stunt will remain in the collective memory for a long time to come.
Like at home in Dunhill Bourdon House in London
Is it a residential building or a hotel? Neither nor! The Bourdon House in London is an exclusive address for men’s clothing. Here you get everything you could wish for in a chic men’s wardrobe. The building in Georgian style offers everything a man could need over three floors.
You won’t find any pieces by Louis Vuitton or Gucci in the Bourdon House. Instead, you’ll find clothing, accessories and leather goods from British luxury brand Dunhill. You can not only shop in London’s Davies Street, but also a spa and a barber ensure a feel-good experience.
The futuristic Louis Vuitton store in Ginza, Japan
The gleaming building bearing the Louis Vuitton monogram stands in Tokyo’s Ginza shopping and entertainment district. The Japanese architecture studio Jun Aoki & Associates gave the flagship store a holographic appearance. Shop for your latest investment piece across seven floors in this shimmering luxury store.
But the inside of this luxury store is also worth a visit. The New York architect Peter Marino has also taken up the maritime exterior in the interior design. Huge jellyfish hang from the ceiling and bathe isolated rooms in blue light.
Minimalist with the white Dior flagship store in Seoul, South Korea
French architect Christian de Portzamparc turned a rather inconspicuous Dior store in Seoul into an impressive flagship store. For the appearance of Dior in Korea, the French architect relies on white facades and straight lines, based on Dior’s creations.
In honor of the opening of this impressive building in June 2015, Dior even launched its own line of accessories only available for purchase in the boutique. Dior also shows how impressive the transformation of the building is in a video on Instagram.
Balenciaga’s plush pop-up store in London
Fluffy floors, fluffy walls, fluffy covers: To celebrate the launch of the Le Cagole bag, Balenciaga will be dressing its entire store on London’s Mount Street in pink fur in Spring 2022.
For this occasion, Balenciaga only showed accessories and of course the iconic Le Cagole bag in the bright pink store.
The pop-up could only be entered for a few months in spring 2022. But according to Balenciaga, all the fur will be used for future fashion projects. So it may well be that you will still see a part of the shop in the form of one or the other design.
