tokyo: lv underground

it's in japan where louis vuitton captures the imagination of its fanbase the most. following the pop-up store craze across the planet, the luxury brand has teamed up with retail giant seibu, opening a temporary outlet in the basement of the latter's gigantic ikebukuro flagship in tokyo. aptly dubbed louis vuitton underground, its interior lacks the usual lustre that louis vuitton is usually associated with, but instead has this edgy [albeit glossed-over] utilitarian vibe. location: 1-28-1 minami ikebukuro [ikebukuro]. © louis vuitton
