The Louis Vuitton Ginza Namiki-dori store, which opened in 1981, is debuting its new facelift.
The store, which occupies a very desirable corner on the popular Namiki-dori Street in Ginza had temporarily moved to the Tokyo Ginza Asahi Building, which houses the Hyatt Centric, as the flagship store prepared for its new façade.
The store was designed by Jun Aoki and Peter Marino, and just like the Chanel store in Ginza Namiki-dori, the building is ready to become an important architectural piece in the Ginza district.
While the store will have everything one can expect from a flagship store (ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories, watches, fine jewelry, fragrances, bags, travel goods, leather goods), it will also feature the second Le Cafe Vi in the world after the success of the Osaka Midosuji store.
Le Cafe Vi will be overseen by Yosuke Suga, the chef of the very popular, and equally expensive, restaurant SUGALABO.
Namiki-dori has long been a very important location in Ginza, featuring the flagships stores of many fashion brands. Namiki-dodri is more quaint and quiet than the main streets of GInza, making the area feel more secluded even though it’s sandwiched between major avenues. Some stores even have two locations in Ginza, one on Chuo-dori Avenue and one on Namiki-dori street.
