Louis Vuitton in Nordstrom
Luxury megabrand Louis Vuitton is opening up shop in Nordstrom on Chicago's Michigan Avenue, making this Vuitton's 5th Chicago location and 123rd store in North America. The new partnership results in an 2,000 sq. ft. Vuitton department carrying the designer leather goods, handbags, luggage, ties, sunglasses, and women's shoes. This development fits into Nordstrom's plan of enhancing its luxury designer business and has been Vuitton's first department store collaboration since Bloomingdale's in 1995. "It's new for us, and it's special," Nordstrom said. "We want to try to send a signal that this represents the best of what customers can buy anywhere from anybody and who better than Vuitton to send that signal. It's such a terrific brand."
