Louis Vuitton opened the doors to its new Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme in Paris

Louis Vuitton opened the doors to its new Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme in Paris

 

Paris, 2017-Oct-10 — /EPR Retail News/ — Louis Vuitton opened the doors to its new Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme at 2 Place Vendôme in Paris on October 4th. The full array of Louis Vuitton savoir-faire – travel accessories and luggage, ready-to-wear, jewelry, watches, leather goods, shoes, fragrances, accessories, plus artisanal workshops – has now been brought together in a single place. The opening marks the Maison’s grand return to the location where the young Louis Vuitton opened his first store over 160 years ago.

Louis Vuitton has returned to  Place Vendôme, where the trunkmaker’s story began. It was in the streets neighboring the celebrated Parisian square that Louis Vuitton honed his craft and opened his first store in 1854. On October 4th the Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme continued the story with a sumptuous space that welcomes the full array of Louis Vuitton savoir-faire and métiers in two hôtels particuliers that have been elegantly united.

The former Hôtel Baudet de Morlet and Hôtel Heuzé de Vologer, two private mansions built in 1714, have been meticulously restored and returned to their former glory by architect Peter Marino. Behind the original façade, the Maison has been designed to create an airy ambiance filled with natural light. Extensive use of glass, light-colored stone and artisanal wall coverings are set off by beautiful parquet and stone flooring, giving each floor a unique character while remaining part of a coherent whole.

Leather goods, accessories, textiles, fragrances, jewelry and watches – the entire world of Louis Vuitton for women and men has been brought together at a single address.

Objets Nomades – a collection of travel and home objects by renowned designers – will for the first time be available on a permanent basis at the Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme. A space on the second floor is also home to the Appartement where clients can be invited to private viewings of products. Embodying Louis Vuitton’s ancestral savoir-faire, the Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme features two working ateliers, the Atelier Haute Joaillerie and the Atelier Rare & Exceptionnel, where very important clients and celebrities have a chance to discover exceptional pieces from the latest collections, which can be fitted and personalized to their taste.

Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme celebrates art as well, exhibiting a curated selection of 33 contemporary works, some of them specially commissioned for the site, including creations by Laurent Grasso, Yan Pei Ming, Stephen Sprouse, Serge Alain Nitegeka and Paul Nabulumo Namarinjmak.

Miu Miu presented Croisiere 2018 with new iteration of the Miu Miu Club in Paris

MILAN, Italy, 2017-Jul-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — Continuing a tradition established in celebration of their Croisiere collections, Miu Miu presented Croisiere 2018 with a new iteration of the Miu Miu Club in Paris on July 2nd, 2017 at 9pm. The club opened with a performance by self-described “fetish rapper” Tommy Genesis, followed by a fashion show set to a soundtrack by Frederic Sanchez. The night continued with an informal dinner by chef Chicco Cerea of Da Vittorio and DJ sets by Siobhan Bell, Valentine Fillol-Cordier, and Slick Woods.

The location was the Parisian seat of the historical Automobile Club de France—the world’s first automobile club—reinterpreted by AMO. Originally founded in 1895, the club was moved several years later from a location near the Paris Opera to an august site on the Place de la Concorde originally designed by the preeminent Ange-Jacques Gabriel for King Louis XV and reimagined by Gustave Rives, a French architect known for his “opulent eclecticism.”  “L’Auto” comprises spaces for recreation, education, entertainment, grooming, drinking, and dining. Most notably, though, the club played an important role in the development of the automobile. In 1906, for instance, l’Auto organized the races that evolved into Formula One.

For Miu Miu Club 2017, the space was customized for innovation over incubation. AMO transformed the library into a car-themed lounge that reconciles the progressive spirit of the club with the grandeur of the late Rococo. Classic boiserie contrasted with hot pink carpet installed for the fashion show; 19th-century ornamentation set off metal tables inspired by the details of classic cars. The dining rooms were restituted to their original pomp with Louis Quinze furniture and brocade-embellished hallways that added new luster to the extant gilded decorations. For the presentation of the collection, the models, illuminated by theatrical follow spots, traced a graphic circuit that linked the stage and the lounge. True to the Miu Miu tradition, glittering young stars composed individual scenes, collaging sounds and styles over an atmosphere rich with creative history, while guests frequented the bar, dining room, and spectacular terrace that overlooked the luminous city.

Guests included Elle Fanning, Emma Greenwell, Gwendoline Christie, Milla Jovovich, Millie Brady, Stacy Martin, Teresa Palmer, Anna Brewster, Alexa Chung, Aymeline Valade, Chiara Ferragni, Doutzen Kroes, Elena Perminova, Josephine de la Baume, Lauren Santo Domingo, Leaf Greener, Mariana Ximenes, Natasha Goldenberg, Sofia Sanchez de Betak, Tina Leung, Veronika Heilbrunner.

H&M Studio Unveils a “See Now, Buy Now” S/S 17 Collection At Paris Fashion Week

H&M Studio Unveils a “See Now, Buy Now” S/S 17 Collection At Paris Fashion Week

 

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, 2017-Mar-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — Last night (1 MAR, 2017), H&M Studio unveiled its latest runway show in Paris, a “see now, buy now” S/S 2017 collection inspired by the power of love, grace, strength and passion of ballet, featuring both womenswear and for the first time, menswear.

Bringing fashion immediately from catwalk to checkout marks a new era for the fashion industry and we value the direct communication we can have with customers through a ‘see now, buy now’ collection. Anything that brings us closer to our customers and makes fashion even more accessible is very positive,” says Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s Head of Design and Creative Director.

For the show, the vast, concrete expanse of the iconic Tennis Club de Paris was transformed into a warm, inviting space broadcasting messages of love and togetherness. Guests such as Nicki Minaj, Alexa Chung, Lucky Blue Smith, Clémence Poésy and Sasha Lane were in attendance, soaking up the atmosphere.

On the catwalk, which featured a stellar cast of models including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Adwoa Aboah, Amber Valletta, Jordan Barrett and Luis Borges, a balance between tailoring and sportswear was struck – clean-cut wool garments worn with fine knits, voluminous silk and translucent nylon, while ruffles and jolts of bright pink were set against monochrome anoraks and reworked trekking sandals.

“With this collection we want to send a global message of love. There are a few pieces that carry the word again and again, kind of like a ticker tape and as a constant reminder of what is important. It feels like now, more than ever, we all need positive feelings and thoughts in our lives” Pernilla Wohlfahrt

Following the show, the over 800 guests in attendance – along with a global audience watching live at studio.hm.com and via VR on H&M’s YouTube channel – were all treated to an electrifying performance by the chart-topping singer/songwriter The Weeknd, who played hits such as Starboy, Can’t Feel My Face and I Feel It Coming.

An interactive pop-up shop was also set up for at the Paris show, while customers around the world could shop the collection online at hm.com at the same time. The collection will also be available in around 180 selected stores from today.

H&M Studio is the key seasonal collection from H&M, with its own dedicated design team.

Carrefour and its “Retail Lab” to support Viva Technology 2017 in Paris between 15 and 17 June

Carrefour and its “Retail Lab” to support Viva Technology 2017 in Paris between 15 and 17 June

 

Boulogne-Billancourt, 2017-Feb-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — For the second year in a row, Carrefour and its “Retail Lab” will be partnering Viva Technology in Paris between 15 and 17 June.

Once again, start-ups working alongside major groups – one of the key factors behind the success of the first edition – will play a central role in the event, thanks to partners who are particularly active in the digital ecosystem and the involvement of start-ups from all over the world.

The event will serve as an opportunity for Carrefour to highlight its open innovation policy: an organisational structure, concrete projects, a culture with the involvement of everybody across all levels of the company and across all Carrefour professions. For this second edition, all of the countries in which the group operates will be involved, and there will be examples of both Carrefour’s innovations and those of its start-up partners from all over the world.

The Viva Technology conference last year involved nearly 50 start-ups selected to take part in challenges organised as part of Carrefour’s Retail Lab. There were also some 200 or so start-ups which had come to meet the Innovation teams; this provided evidence of the sheer diversity of the Carrefour professions involved in the initiative – as well as helping to generate a buzz around the event. Optimiam, hosted at the Carrefour Lab, was the overall winner of the Viva Technology competition with its anti-waste application.

RIMOWA arrives in Paris with its first flagship store

 

Paris, 2017-Feb-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — RIMOWA has opened its first flagship store in the heart of Paris. The five-level, 600-square-meter store will showcase the entire range of RIMOWA high-end luggage and will offer a full range of services.

RIMOWA, the first German Maison to join the LVMH Group, has inaugurated its first flagship store at 73 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, opposite the Hotel Bristol. The store will feature the entire range of RIMOWA high-end luggage and its rich manufacturing savoir-faire.

Inspired by the golden age of commercial aviation and the fuselage of the Junkers F13 in Duralumin, Swiss designers Atelier oï created a space marked by the iconic aluminum grooves of RIMOWA suitcases. With 600 square meters on five levels, the store includes retail space, an exhibition space, customer service, a repair shop and a projection room featuring the film of the Junkers F13 project by RIMOWA.

Guided by a passion for innovation, the Maison has also devoted a special area to its new RIMOWA Electronic Tag, a digital check-in solution launched in 2016 in partnership with Lufthansa and Eva Air. The first system in the world that allows travelers to check suitcases using a smartphone and deposit them at automatic baggage-drop machines, the RIMOWA Electronic Tag saves considerable time at the check-in counter.

The opening of this new flagship featuring the entire RIMOWA universe reaffirms the luggage-maker’s visionary approach while remaining faithful to the unique heritage that has earned it global renown.

After setting up space in the Galeries Lafayette and Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, Fresh is now featured at the Sephora store on the Champs Elysées.

Founded in the United States in 1991, Fresh initially grew in the U.S. before beginning its conquest of Asian markets. The brand has since 2015 been accelerating its international expansion in Europe, notably in France, launching several new retail spaces in Paris this year.

After opening a first counter in the Galeries Lafayette department store in late 2015, Fresh inaugurated a beauty space in Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche in summer 2016, joined since this fall by a pop-up space in the first floor Fashion department. Fresh invites shoppers to discover the House with a beauty diagnostic, as well as a workshop for personalized gifts thanks to custom-made accessories.

The space has already proved a resounding success: excluding Sephora label products, Fresh cosmetics are among the top sellers at Sephora Champs Elysées in the skincare category!

The cosmetics brand is at the same time sharpening its online image, rolling out a French-language site in April, plus a French Facebook page, which went live over the summer.

Miu Miu unveils new kind of private club in Paris

Milano, Italy, 2016-Jul-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — On July 3rd, 2016 Miu Miu will unveil a new kind of private club in Paris. Transforming an historic location into a contemporary salon of the imagination, the miumiu-club Paris will bring a new sense of occasion to Paris Couture Week, for one night only.

Miu Miu will reinterpret and revive the ornate private residence of Hotel de la Paiva on the Champs-Elysees into clubrooms including a cinema, restaurant and show house for a presentation of its Croisiere Collection. Mixing histories, layers of cultural meaning and Miu Miu’s underlying spirit of female empowerment, the-miumiu-club Paris will deceive the senses in a merging of the new collection with new encounters.

Members will be able to view, for the first time, the new Autumn/Winter 2016 campaign and video; sample cuisine by Margot Henderson; listen to a renowned string quartet, Dirty Pretty Strings, and DJ sets by Paul Simonon, Plastiscines, Kate Moss and Katie Grand; watch a showcase of all eleven of the auteur series Miu Miu Women’s Tales and experience the Croisiere collection up close.

The building’s history is an ironic and colorful backdrop for a club celebrating the many facets of the Miu Miu woman. It was built in the mid-1800s, commissioned by the infamous courtesan Esther Lachmann (known as La Paiva) for her private residence. Legend has it La Paiva was once pushed out of a cab by a customer into the Champs-Elysees, and vowed she would one day build a house there.

The exquisite rooms of Hotel de la Paiva radiate with extraordinary details. It is famed for its painted ceiling of Day chasing Night away by Paul Baudry (the painter responsible for the ceilings in the Grand Foyer of the Opera Garnier) and its magnificent staircase, carved from Algerian yellow onyx. A Napoleon III style bathtub also in yellow onyx has taps set with precious stones. La Paiva is said to have taken baths of milk, lime-blossom, and even champagne in it.

La Paiva held some of the most tantalizing and decadent soirees of the age in the lavish mansion. Her circle included members of the literary, artistic, political and intellectual elite, including Gustave Flaubert and Emile Zola. Since 1904, Hotel de la Paiva has been home to the Travellers Club, a gentlemen’s club (10 years ago women began to be admitted), partial to travel and backgammon.

the-miumiu-club Paris is an evolution of exclusive Miu Miu Clubs held in London, Shanghai, LA, and Macau. the-miumiu-london, held for three days at the Cafe Royal in 2012, was a new kind of members club, celebrating the many facets of the Miu Miu woman. In 2011 Miu Miu took over the iconic Park Hyatt Hotel in Shanghai with a 1940s-themed multi-sensory experience. That same year Miu Miu flew to LA, where a film noir cinema club was created for the premiere of Muta – the second of the Miu Miu Women’s Tales. Lancaster House, an extraordinary private palace in London, was transformed into a temporary Miu Miu dining club in 2010. At Miu Miu’s club on the Peninsula of Macau in 2008, guests experienced a fashion show, dinner and Crazy Horse cabaret performance.
