a peek inside louis vuitton voyages

i posted about the exhibition previously, but this is the first look i’ve seen inside.  looks amazing!

this photo was taken by luc castel at the national museum of china.  i was at south coast plaza yesterday and mentally noted how cute the hot air balloon display was at the louis vuitton boutique inside bloomingdale’s.
