The Cannes film festival is the most celebrated festival of it’s kind in the world. Not only do the finest in film turn out for the international event, but lovers of luxury flock to the south of France to enjoy the scenery, celebs, and the shopping! High end brands capitalize on the occasion with pop-up shops and special edition items, like these extravagant high heels from Louis Vuitton.
Louis Vuitton unveiled its 1,400-square-foot boutique to the public on May 6 and plans to keep it open until Aug. 31. Located next to the brand’s flagship on the mythic beachside Boulevard de la Croisette, it features a section inspired by Wong Kar Wai’s “In the Mood for Love,” showcasing eveningwear and accessories. Through a lush, plant-filled courtyard stands a space dedicated to the house’s timepieces and fine jewelry.
The store will sell a series of limited edition products, including a black clutch embroidered by Lesage and satin pumps embellished with flowers and strands of pearls. The space was formerly occupied by fellow LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton brand Celine, and will be permanently annexed to Vuitton’s existing Cannes store in 2012.
