Louis Vuitton opens new flagship store in Barcelona, Spain

Louis Vuitton opened this week its new flagship store in Barcelona on the prestigious Passeig de Gracia, home to all the major international luxury brands. Louis Vuitton has chosen to renovate and restore an iconic building from 1874, La Casa Julia by architect Rafael Guastavino, thus becoming one of the most impressive stores of Passeig de Gracia.

The new store features the entire range of Louis Vuitton products, for both men and women. As a tribute to Barcelona and to celebrate the reopening of the store, British artist Billie Achilleos has created a sculpture inspired by the famous salamander in the Güell Park, entirely manufactured by pieces of leather from the house.
