Louis Vuit­ton chases the end­less win­ter with a chalet re­make of its Aspen bou­tique.

Call­ing all après-ski lovers: Louis Vuit­ton raises moun­tain chic to new heights this June with a full ren­o­va­tion of its Aspen store, trans­form­ing the in­te­rior into a high coun­try oa­sis—and just when ski­wear envy kicks into gear again. Now con­nois­seurs of cre­ative di­rec­tor Ni­co­las Gh­esquière’s sin­gu­lar vi­sion can shop new prod­uct of­fer­ings, start­ing with the house’s Pre-Fall col­lec­tion of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear (ladies, look for a stand­out belted fur jacket with red ac­cents). The clothes join the bou­tique’s orig­i­nal se­lec­tion of leather goods and ac­ces­sories—all in a set­ting rem­i­nis­cent of Courchevel, with that je ne sais quoi chalet vibe you thought you could ex­pe­ri­ence only in the Alps.

For those cov­et­ing the coolest pieces of the sea­son, the shop is also of­fer­ing Masters, a su­per-stylish col­lec­tion of bags and ac­ces­sories fea­tur­ing artist Jeff Koons’s re­pro­duc­tions of work by five old masters, in­clud­ing da Vinci, Rubens, and Ti­tian. Star pieces from Louis Vuit­ton’s line of home fur­nish­ings, Ob­jets No­mades, also hold pride of place, in­clud­ing the Co­coon, a hang­ing geo­met­ric chair from cel­e­brated Brazil­ian de­sign­ers Fer­nando and Hum­berto Cam­pana. Round­ing out the ex­pe­ri­ence are Aspen ex­clu­sives, in­clud­ing ASPEN-mono­grammed Nev­er­full MM totes (RIGHT, $1,570) and mink blan­kets in beige and Vuit­ton’s clas­sic Karako­ram pat­tern. 205 S. Mill St., 970-544-8200; louisvuit­ton.com .
