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.
