SAO PAULO, Brazil — Louis Vuitton on Thursday opened a 10,620-square-foot store in the Cidade Jardim mall here, its first global store in Latin America.
“The opening is evidence of the confidence that we have in this country’s dynamic future,” said Yves Carcelle, president of Louis Vuitton. “Our Brazilian customers shop a lot abroad in our stores worldwide, but we feel that this is the time to ‘give back’ to our customers a new shopping destination in their own country.”
