New Osaka Louis Vuitton Resembles Sailing Ship

Shopping Design Osaka Kansai

On February 1, 2020, Louis Vuitton opened its new Osaka Midosuji store. Although not necessarily a flagship, the new location, designed by Jun Aoki, is Japan’s largest and features a façade reminiscent of a ship’s mast and sails billowing in the wind. The elegant and intriguing design is inspired by Osaka’s history as a port town. Indeed, during the 1600s, shipping agents were established in Osaka and distinctive cargo vessels known as higaki-kaisen transported sake, along with other goods to current-day Tokyo.
