Redesigned by architect Peter Marino, the brand new Costa Mesa South Coast Plaza Louis Vuitton store opened on July 11th. Along with recreating the interior of the store was expansion, and Southern California is the home to the largest single-level Louis Vuitton retail store in the Americas. I would have assumed that we already had the largest LV store in the country, however, Las Vegas's store, despite not having a singular floor as large as the Costa Mesa one, has three stories and is still the overall largest store. 


Either way, Peter Marino's touches have now made this store an artistic attraction. Marino believes artwork is an integral aspect of the design process and has incorporated a number of pieces from top talents, Damien Hirst, Peter Dayton and Farhad Moshiri in the store along with a number of other unique design pieces that encompass Southern California's culture and Louis Vuitton's French history and craftsmanship. 

Also featured in the Costa Mesa South Coast Plaza store are the Objects Nomades, Louis Vuitton's collection of travel and home objects. At the opening, the Campana Brothers Sensuous Cocoon chair and Bomboca Sofa will be accompanied by Raw Edges Concertina foldable tables and chairs.
