Guests sipped cocktails and were treated to special presentations by Louis Vuitton artisans. To celebrate the store opening, a Filipino icon—the jeepney— was hand-painted onto one of Louis Vuitton’s flagship products, the Alzer trunk. A Petite Malle, one of creative director Nicolas Ghesquiere’s iconic designs, was also assembled live in exotic crocodile leather.
