Starting today and through September 15, Isetan Shinjuku's men's building is host to Louis Vuitton's special shop-in-shop celebrating the work of late British artist Christopher Nemeth. Nemeth's iconic woven rope artwork was the main motif for Louis Vuitton's Fall/Winter 2015 collection, which is now neatly merchandized along the racks and shelves of the special build-out.
Creative director Kim Jones called Isetan his "most favorite department store in the world," showing his enthusiasm for the pop-up, whose design he oversaw.
Accompanying the Louis Vuitton space is a slew of the brand's classic monogram items that feature overlays of Nemeth's pattern. Isetan is keeping the distribution of these products extremely tight, only allowing 400 people to enter the pop-up per day on a lottery basis and limiting customers to buying certain number of goods at a time. As much as we would like to get our hands on the badass wristlet pouch, it seems a farsighted dream. You can see details of each of the exclusive items on Isetan's website now.
At the same time as the opening of the Isetan pop-up, Dover Street Market Ginza also followed suit with a Christopher Nemeth-themed section on its third floor. This is a quick follow-up to DSM's first-floor installation which also paid tribute to Nemeth last July.
