Le Louvre’s rich 98-year history has seen depressions, world wars, Dior’s new look, Chanel’s fashion reign, the queen’s visit to Australia and many many of the world events that may seem a mere blip on our radars, but that shaped the world as we know it today. Sitting amongst the oldest multi brand stores in the world, Le Louvre is proud to be counted alongside Bergdorf Goodman in New York, Le Non Marché in Paris and La Rinescente in Milan.
Le Louvre South Yarra is a glorious place, the original gilt mirrors, regency desks, mirrored walls and the iconic Le Louvre logo remain from the original collins street store and now, made all the more special with Aboriginal art, Lucite chairs, tables and lights from London, silver and white crocodile skin sofas from Paris, Art Deco painted mirrors from Brazil. An extraordinary mix of style together with ever-changing fashion sourced from all corners of the world.
A significant part of Le Louvre’s 98-year history is the idea that fashion, art and design are one and that together they create a unique and wonderful experience. This is something that can be lost in the new era of fast, internet-fuelled fashion. To see the beauty in buying a one-off, investment piece at Le Louvre has to be experienced in order to understand the difference.
