It's been boarded up for months, but today Louis Vuitton's Westfield Bondi Junction store reopens with a flourish - boasting new categories and a makeover reminiscent of its beachy surroundings. Thanks to finishing touches that take cues from the landscape of Bondi Beach, the newly renovated space marks a new era for the luxury French brand. Using Tasmanian oak wood flooring and locally designed tables, chairs, vases and carpet to furnish the space, the Bondi Junction store now features Australian elements, such as a wooden surfboard and aerial photography of Bondi Beach to capture the essence of its Eastern suburbs surrounds.

The new store marks a renewed focus on originality for the house, who last year unveiled a new-look Queenstown boutique with locally sourced material and furniture to great success.

Added to the current range of men's and women's leather goods on offer, and it's little wonder we can't wait to browse the refreshed Westfield store.
