Located just a few minutes walk from the Piazza San Marco, the Louis Vuitton Maison Venezia, 
originally built as a cinema, the Cinema Teatro San Marco, in 1908, is the 20th Maison in the 
world (there are now 21 Maisons in total).

 

On the top floor is the l'Espace Louis Vuitton, a cultural space for exhibitions (where LV has 
partnered with the Fondazione Musei Civici a Venezia to sponsor all restoration of artwork to 
then be exhibited in this space) with a mini-library and bookstore. It is the 6th in the world 
and the first in Italy. On the ground floor, you have all the leather goods (I'm dying for the 
4-wheel classic monogrammed carry on!), 1st is the men's, 2nd the women's (gorgeous fitting 
rooms!) then the l'Espace. Four gorgeous floors designed yet again by Peter Marino.

 

I was most fascinated by the stairwell (as you can see by the million and one photos I took of 
it!) and of the play of light and shadows dancing through all the windows. So beautiful. Most 
interestingly, as you may remember from my last LV post (which you can read here), the shoe 
workshop is just half an hour away! Michael Burke said it best, "To be able to design, 
manufacture and sell all within the same city is quite unique and I think that is the metaphor 
for the future of Europe." Hear hear!
