Louis Vuitton takes on an Art Deco look in its new Lille shop

The French trunk-maker has set up shop in the Huîtrière building, an iconic edifice in the northern city, listed as a Historic Monument. Almost a century old, it was entirely renovated last year with the help of some thirty local companies. A former Michelin-starred restaurant, it is an Art Deco masterpiece, designed by the architect Gaston Trannoy. Its pediment is sculpted with floral motifs and a bunch of grapes. A huge oyster shell supports a bow window with stained-glass panes decorated with wisteria motifs. Other wonders are the mosaics evoking the seabed. The interior has also been restored or reconstituted, like the sandstone mosaics on the floor.
