The doors have opened to Louis Vuitton's newest and largest store in the Philippines. Bursting with colour, the brands most legendary creations, and their new cutting edge designs, fans of Louis Vuitton and eager shoppers are in for a treat in this candy-land.
During a sneak-peak one day prior to the official opening, Tatler accompanied Louis Vuitton loyalist, Dr Victoria Belo, as she indulged in a private shopping session with the store all to herself. With just a handful of friends, she and her husband Dr Hayden Kho previewed all Louis Vuitton’s must-have hot-ticket items from luggage to gadgets, footwear, fashion, jewellery and fragrance.
As a long-time fan of Louis Vuitton, Belo said “to me, their creations do not go out of style. I can keep wearing them”. As she strolled the expansive store-grounds, her eyes twinkled as she was deciding what to focus on first. Kho, a huge fan of designer Virgil Abloh, went straight for the men’s collection. “If a man should buy one thing from this brand it’s that pair of white sneakers,” he said, remarking that you cannot go wrong with a classic like that in your closet.
Belo interestingly also gushed about Abloh and how he modernised the label. “I really think Virgil Abloh has added so much to Louis Vuitton. The men’s side is much more exciting than the women’s. I am always borrowing Hayden’s clothes,” Belo revealed with a chuckle.
