Globetrotters on the strip, act fast: the new boutique from Louis Vuitton is setting up shop in the Palazzo.
A peek inside Louis Vuitton’s only industrial loft-like space, catering to Strip shoppers.
In 1837, after two years of travel on foot from his small, working-class burg in eastern France, a young Louis Vuitton arrived in Paris to apprentice with a respected box-maker and packing workshop. That apprenticeship would change the course of luxury luggage for generations to come. Opening his own shop in 1854, Vuitton began creating his trunks in hard-wearing, weatherproof canvas, offering special order and personalization services to his clients—a service that customers will find in the newest Louis Vuitton store, in Palazzo.
The first of its boutiques in the US to open with an industrial loft-like feel, the shop sets itself apart with vintage Parisian fixtures and a model vintage airplane hung from the ceiling to set the tone for jetsetters making a stop on the Strip.
Customization services like Mon Monogram—which allows customers to personalize their leather goods with hand-painted motifs and initials, plus hot stamping for small leather accessories, and even designing special order pieces—mean guests work with a craftsman from start to finish.
Lovers of the historically luxe house will find unisex travel pieces, men’s and women’s shoes, leather goods, and accessories like the Neverfull tote with voyage stickers and Jet Set sunglasses—the ultimate homage to wanderlust. Grand Canal Shoppes at Venetian & Palazzo, 702-789-3735
