China always seems to be ahead of the curve, and they've done it again with the opening of architect Peter Marino's Louis Vuitton store at Shanghai's Plaza 66 Maison. It intends to pay homage to elegant travel and the new experiences that come along with it. With four light-filled floors, each with their own character, Marino created a sophisticated space that encourages exploration. Nothing quite says elegance like Louis Vuitton, and the architecture of their new store is a continued testament to that.
