This holiday season Louis Vuitton‘s flagship store is getting ‘wrapped up’ in vinyl display of Murakami’s iconic Monogram Multicolore print. According to WWD, the installation will begin going up today and will be completed on Sunday. This will be the only store with the vinyl display, which is signed by Murakami. “In late September, the company opened a “Bag Bar” on the flagship’s mezzanine level, replete with bar stools as well as an installation of moving display fixtures to highlight different handbag styles. While the company has the bar concept in other locations, the New York version, designed by Peter Marino and Advanced Animations, is the only one with moving parts.”
