Louis Vuitton's Balloons & Dunes (London, UK)


I first noticed these Louis Vuitton windows during the recent FNO in London and as always - despite my ambivalent feelings towards the brand - instantly fell in love with the assortment of hot air balloons on display. Combined with the sand dunes and classic monogram trunks, the very enviable mannequins seem to be embarking on an exotic journey. If only I could travel like this...

Note how some balloons are toting bags - very cute.

Mini trunks / beauty cases.

Overview of all the windows - featuring more balloons on the second floor.

  6. What a wonderful Louis-Vuitton window display and you have to love the magic of a hot air balloon.
    Last week, I took a photo of our LV window in Auckland and it was also displaying a few hot air balloons. I was going to do a post soon.

    Happy week
    Hugs

  15. Holy gorgeousness! I love the colors! What a magnificent display. :)

    PS. I think Instagram would be a pretty, free-spirited hipster girl who loves to take photos of beautiful and dreamy vintage things with her polaroid camera. And she likes to take a lot of photos of her feet for some reason. Haha!

  36. What a cheerful display! Love the balloons. I had hoped to shop a bit in Vienna, but hardly had any time. I am planning to go back to Vienna next year. can you imagine, i did not get to eat the Sacher cake! But I did get some Melange and Apple Strudel.

  38. oh stupid lv. lololol. but i give them a YUGE thumbs up for this display. just fab! it takes me away! ok, that was cheesy, but the display is fun, whimsical and beautiful, as all of the good displays seem to be. :)

  39. A truly imaginative stylist created these windows for sure, reminding me that hot-air balloons are the only mode of travel taking you to unplanned destinations.

  40. Gorgeous photos and I absolutely adore idea of everything flying; Montgolfiers, umbrellas or people. If i had my own shop, window would be probably something like this. But bothers me how they attached balloons cause there's nothing visible.

    ReplyDelete
  41. i think this is one of the cutest and most creative window displays i've ever seen. love it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Another interesting concept, I like it!

  43. It looks magical!It is becoming more difficult for them to outstage themsleves in window dressing which, I believe, now became a form of entretainment of the customers. I wonder every time what would be the theme of new windows at Chanel, Lanvin, LV and here in New York - Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman...
