PARIS. As promised, the full photo diary of my 36 hours in Paris with Louis Vuitton.
Huge thanks to LV for organizing an amazing trip and I hope you guys will like the photos!
Woke up at 4 in the morning and took the first flight to Paris.
Arrived in Paris looking like a sleepwalking zombie and checked in at the Mandarin Oriental
reunited with my BFF Andy & had lunch with the lovely Louis Vuitton team, my starter looked like a small, beautiful, island!
First stop of the day was a visit to the historical Louis Vuitton workshop in Asnières-sur-Seine
a small trunk in the making
beautiful, LV monogrammed leather
After the amazing tour of the workshop we got to visit the beautiful house that was the home of Mr Louis Vuitton and his family between 1880 and the 70’s.
the big windows in the living room had the most beautiful, natural light coming through them
we then went upstairs to the small travel museum, filled with beautiful vintage trunks
..and of course the famous fold out trunk bed!
Then it was time to go back to the Mandarin Oriental to get changed for the opening cocktail of the new Louis Vuitton pop-up shop at Printemps, dedicated to the Yayoi Kusama collaboration.
Andy and me on our way to the event
I wore an electric blue Maje dress paired with silver accessories.

Going into the pop up store was like entering another world, polkadots everywhere!
The collection was filled with color and Kusamas signature polka-dots
Yayoi Kusama / Louis Vuitton bags
I fell in love with these amazing sunglasses worthy of Mr Willy Wonka himself!
Even the cupcakes where covered in polkadots!
Andy & I found a photobooth!
after the opening cocktail we went to an amazing japanese restaurant together with the LV team. And trust me when I say this, no visit to Paris is complete without a giant macaron for dessert!
Day two of the event started bright and early in the Louis Vuitton flagship store on Champs–Élysées where we got a private tour of the Maison
..and a crash course in the art of packing!

We then did a visit to the amazing Espace Culturel Exhibition
..and ended our Paris adventure with the obligatory visit to the Eiffel Tower!
