If anyone’s ever given you stick about your increasing collection of LV luggage ‘essentials’, send them packing. Or send them here, to the seventh floor of Louis Vuitton’s Parisian flagship, where a wealth of educational and artistic material beckons, sure to soften even the most prudent of hearts. Taking ‘travel’ as its main theme, this cultural centre (a bit of a hidden gem and reachable only by a blacked out elevator from Danish-Icelandic wunderkind artist Olafur Eliasson) puts on exhibitions that take visitors on journeys all around the world including Easter Island, Korea, a trip down the Silk Route and most recently a voyage of internal discovery. If your heart doesn’t sing ‘yes!’ to that monogrammed suitcase now, we can’t help you.
