Louis Vuitton opened its doors in Sydney today for a first look at its 13th global “Maison” offering – among other nice things – a luxury personalised custom service only available in Milan. “Even before Paris, before New York or London or Tokyo, Sydney has been chosen,” global CEO Yves Carcelle said at the launch, alongside special guest Cate Blanchett.
“Sydney represents a significant market … You are forever a centre of attraction for high-end tourists from all this part of the world. The City of Sydney deserves what we call a Fifth Avenue of New York.”
