French Entry

Luxurious French marque Louis Vuitton will grace Ala Moana Center’s open-air galleria a second time for its awaited reopening mid-April.

Extending a relationship with Hawai’i that has endured for more than 30 years, Louis Vuitton appointed Hilo-based fashion designer Sig Zane to devise a sophisticated floral pattern for both entry levels’ vestibules.

LV’s coveted Monogram Idylle fine jewelry collection, charmingly ignited with a sparkling gemstone, unveils a fresh interpretation of its precious motif just in time for spring.

In anticipation of the Ala Moana locale’s premiere watch and jewelry space, a limited edition Monogram Idylle 18kt white gold necklace, accented with a delicate sapphire pendant (shown above) was crafted-assuring the brand remains close to Honolulu’s hearts.

An ode to a season of rebirth, blossoms of bijoux fashioned with Vuitton’s signature fleurs and other fine pieces are housed in the new watch and jewelry area, which is designed with a separate entrance to create an intimate experience for loyal LV patrons.

Other alluring characteristics of the reimagined lieu magnify savoir-faire, including coveted bespoke leather goods services and its Hawai’i-exclusive “Haute Maroquinerie” program for custom-made leather items and handbag personalization.

Vuitton’s new venue encompasses its highbrow universe with men’s and women’s RTW collections, shoes, leather goods and accessories.

Peruse into Louis Vuitton this April and reawaken your spring wardrobe.
