Milan’s Via Monte Napoleone, the most infamous shopping street on the planet, was virtually shut down last night as Louis Vuitton opened its brand-spanking-new digs. Fashion Week groupies were out in droves, hoping to catch a glimpse of cult designer Marc Jacobs, in town to fete the opening of “Louis Vuitton: The Art of Fashion,” an exhibit I can’t wait to run to this week! Braving the crowds, I elbowed my way into the four-storey shop―designed like an elegant home―just in time to glimpse Anna Dello Russo pose for the paps in full-on Vuitton Fall ’11 (officer’s cap, jodhpurs, and all) as Katie Grand (the stylist who has collaborated with designer Marc Jacobs since 2003) flew away in her limo into the night. Wonder what this means, if anything, for the future of Jacobs at Vuitton? Things that make you go “hmm.”
