Louis Vuitton unveiled “The Rainbow Project” on Bloor Street
Louis Vuitton is brightening the street with its latest series of window installations. The brand has invited its employees and their children to participate a global initiative called “The Rainbow Project” by creating the art for their window displays. Rainbow drawing from local submissions will decorate the windows through digital screens or stickers. The Bloor Street store in Toronto features a colourful arch from a Canadian submission and while there may not be a pot of gold beneath the rainbow, we’re thinking some monogram luggage would be a worthy substitution.

Ranging from sizes 16 to 24 and priced entirely under $30, the collection provides affordable fashion to women of all sizes.
