Louis Vuitton cans Tokyo shop plan

IT IS WITH THE deepest regret that we notice that Louis Vuitton has decided against opening yet another shop in Tokyo.

According to nikkei.net, it’s because people aren’t buying as much as they used to. More worryingly, it appears that 57 out of the 400 shops it owns worldwide are in Japan.

Louis Vuitton is rightly famous for having a sculture of a bag on display outside the bright, spanking new Bangalore International Airport.  Sadly, this wonderful sculpture, a full 25 feet high, has now disappeared. ♥
