On 29 September 2018, Louis Vuitton opened its first shop at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (Terminal 2E, Hall K). "We are proud to welcome this iconic brand of French luxury in the heart of the largest airport in France. Louis Vuitton, founded even before the first aircraft took flight, now has an establishment in one of the busiest hubs in the world," says Augustin de Romanet, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Groupe ADP.
This innovative shop has regular sales events, such as a personalisation service allowing users to put their initials on their luggage there and then. This in-store service is available to international customers now.
The notion of travel and expertise is also reflected in the window display, which features a motorised paraglider sitting on the iconic monogrammed hat box, specially made by the legendary Louis Vuitton workshops in Asnières to transport it. This contemporary replica of the "flying machine", designed by Louis Vuitton in the twentieth century, is made of metal parts and materials used in the fashion house's latest Men's collections.
