Wishlist – Louis Vuitton by Appointment
Louis Vuitton gives new meaning to the term ?bespoke?, in an exclusive by-appointment-only personalised handbag service at its New Bond Street Maison.
You?d be forgiven in thinking Louis Vuitton?s by-appointment-only personalised handbag service was a speedy process. Discreetly escorted to the New Bond Street Maison?s airy second floor apartment, designed by renowned edgy architect and designer Peter Marino, customers are welcomed with refreshments as they enjoy comfortable lounge seating in a relaxed yet luxurious atmosphere.
With over 80,000 possibilities, appointments at Louis Vuitton?s dedicated private salon, the Haute Maroquinerie, are made in two hour slots. Presented with a range of bag styles, colours and exotic leathers and skins, clients are advised on different combinations before given the opportunity to try the styles in front of a floor-length mirror.
Orders are sent to Louis Vuitton?s Paris workshop and take up to six months to make. With prices starting at £5,000 and a waiting list of over five months, you?d be wise to book your appointment, sharpish.
Visit Louis Vuitton, 17-20 New Bond St, London W1S 2RB for more information.
