Louis Vuitton London New Bond Street Maison opening party


the hottest ticket in town must be the one to the opening party of louis vuitton's maison at london's new bond street. finally, after what seemed like forever, london now has a store which houses all their collections under one roof. the ladies all dressed up to the nines in vuitton, check out redcarpet-fashionawards for more pics. i was really expecting to see more adventurous pieces on the guys, but most really kept it safe.

dominic cooper arrived at the party in a dark blue wool and mohair dress suit with piping details from the spring 2010 collection. the actor also wore one of my favourite shoes from that collection, a pair of dove grey lace ups with sculptural details on the side.

dominic wore the suit, and marc jacobs' beau lorenzo martone wore a similar pair of metallic electric blue lace ups as featured from the same runway look:

i really like lorenzo's styling. very classic and laidback, but adding a touch of color with the metallic shoes. i really like those shoes. lorenzo also wore a blazer from the pre-spring 2010 collection. the block white details above the pockets made all the difference to an otherwise safe looking jacket. really liking it.

actor freddie fox arrived with sister emilia in tow. freddie wore a burgundy colored wool, mohair and silk satin suit, and added a touch of colors with the butterfly print scarf around his neck. i'm loving his whole look, especially his lace ups, which i believe is also from vuitton. we can just about see douglas booth's outfit at the back, but i can't seem to find any other picture of him at the party. i am loving his shoes too.

  4. Hey, have you visited the maison yet? I'm intending to but the thought of braving the crowd that is bound to be there this weekend is off-putting. Do you know if they are launching any limited edition pieces to commemorate this new maison? Nothing was mentioned in the mailer I received though.
