LOUIS VUITTON | Maison Osaka Midosuji

Louis Vuitton celebrates the grand opening of Maison Osaka Midosuji, the new Japanese flagship store.

Open on February 1st, 2020, the store is the imaginative result of a close collaboration between architects Jun Aoki and Peter Marino, who both share a long-standing relationship with Louis Vuitton. This new four-floor store reflects Osaka’s heritage as Japan’s most important port and highlight’s the city’s growing role as an international travel hub.

From the “mon” - family crest - inspiration of the Monogram canvas, to the long list of renowned Japanese clients, Louis Vuitton has always maintained strong ties with the Land of the Rising Sun. The opening of the first Louis Vuitton store on Japanese soil in 1978 in the Tokyo district of Kioicho allowed the Monogram to permeate the collective conscience of local artistic minds. This exchange was raised to new levels by the memorable interpretations of iconic designs imagined by Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami, and Rei Kawakubo, and again in 2016 when the landmark “Volez Voguez Voyagez” exhibition dedicated to Louis Vuitton’s heritage traveled to Tokyo. 
From the very foundations of the Maison, the connection between Louis Vuitton and Japan is driven by a common fascination – two worlds capable of combining absolute respect for tradition with a strong desire for modernity.  via https://eu.louisvuitton.com/
