    • Store Opening at Rome's Fiumicino Airport - Louis Vuitton Heritage NEWS
    On February 18th, 2020, Louis Vuitton opened a store inside Terminal T3 at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, the first to be located at an Italian airport.

    The store’s facade, completely covered in digital screens, pays homage to Rome and Italy and welcomes visitors to the space. Drawing inspiration from 1950's Italian design, the choice of the store's materials echoes the monumental architecture of the Eternal City. For example, travertine, a clear reference to the famous sculptures and buildings across Rome, becomes the foundational element of the space, used both for the flooring and the numerous furnishings. Natural cowhide belts have been integrated with each one featuring exclusive finishes that also decorate Louis Vuitton luggage and trunks: the edging in red paint, the visible yellow stitching, and the iconic rivets in gilded brass. Reaching 13 meters in height, the ceiling suspends two Hughes H-1 Racer model planes as if dancing in mid-air, reconfirming the close link between Louis Vuitton and travel, the raison d'être of the Maison since its founding over 160 years ago.

    Within this immersive space, visitors can discover Louis Vuitton's savoir-faire through the complete offer of leather goods, travel items, textiles, watches, jewellery, accessories, fragrances, ready-to-wear and women's and men's shoes. In addition, customers will have the possibility to customize their favorite Louis Vuitton leather goods products with a unique plane-shaped hot stamping, specifically designed for the Fiumicino store.

    As part of its Louis Vuitton for UNICEF partnership, Louis Vuitton launches on the 21st February the Silver Lockit bracelet designed by Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh.

    The new design is contemporary, yet instantly identifiable, adding an additional dimension to the existing collection of bracelets.
    Inspired by Virgil Abloh’s Spring-Summer 2020 runway collection, the Silver Lockits are available in four colourways: black, orange, celadon green and a blue with hints of yellow.

    The bracelet features the designer’s now signature bold chains, this time in silver, linked to a thicker, colourful cord, Louis Vuitton charm and engraved padlock.

    In continuation of its #MAKEAPROMISE campaign, Louis Vuitton is committed to raising awareness and funds for UNICEF to support the most vulnerable children around the world.
    By purchasing the Silver Lockit designed by Virgil Abloh, clients have the opportunity to support UNICEF's work in disaster -affected countries and reaching children in vulnerable situations.

    The Silver Lockit is inspired by the tumbler lock invented by Georges Vuitton in 1890 to protect clients’ most precious belongings.

    Since the launch of the Silver Lockit, the Louis Vuitton for UNICEF partnership has raised nearly ten million US$ for UNICEF to help children at risk.

    UNICEF does not endorse any company, brand, product or service.
