TOKYO — Louis Vuitton will unveil its revamped and expanded Matsuya flagship in Ginza next week, underscoring its long-term commitment to the Japanese luxury market, which is showing signs of a rebound.
“We’ve never ignored Japan, even with the rise of China. Japan has always been a top market,” Michael Burke, chairman and chief executive officer, told WWD Friday, a day after the French brand held an event at the Tokyo Station Hotel to celebrate the opening of its “Timeless Muses” exhibition honoring notable women such as Catherine Deneuve and Kate Moss.
