Fashion Institution. Le Louvre
Shopping with a client in South Yarra on Saturday, we visited the oldest of the old-school retailers, Le Louvre in South Yarra. A fashion institution in Collins Street for over 8o years Le Louvre space transports you to luxurious fashion heaven and has recently made the move to online shopping.
Home to designers Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Stella McCartney, Marchesa, Jenny Packham, Lanvin and Givenchy to name a few, the new online store remains loyal to owner Georgina Weir’s ethos and is a digital embodiment of Le Louvre’s exclusive edit of some of the world’s finest fashion labels. Accessories predominate and there are touches of clothing including signature pieces by designers Mary Katrantzou, Balmain and Lanvin. Product designed by the Le Louvre team will also feature.
The shopping experience in-store is not to be missed. The inclusion of graffiti by artist Dan Wenn in fluro pink is simplistically fabulous. Mirrored stairs and a glass staircase provide an amazing central beacon, the kind of architectural juxtaposition you’d expect from an old master made new.
If you feel like treating yourself or just basking in a dose of high fashion, be sure to visit Le Louvre.
