Louis Vuitton has progressed into the food and beverage sector with its first-ever café and restaurant, Le Café V and Sugalabo V opening its doors for guests.
Situated in Osaka, Japan, both the café and restaurant are said to serve dishes from famed chef Yosuke Suga, who was once the trainee of the legendary, 32-Michelin star chef, Joël Robuchon. Le Café V is located on the topmost (fourth) floor of the store, where cocktails are to be served on an outdoor terrace — perfect for shoppers who need to match the vibes post- or mid-shopping spree.
The restaurant, Sugalabo V, opens its doors only for dinner and is a conception of Chef Suga’s globally successful, limited seating restaurant of the same name in Tokyo. Behind a set of bistro doors, Louis Vuitton’s restaurant conceptualizes an open kitchen, designed with fine embellishments and Warm woods, distinctly LV.
Louis Vuitton has Collaborated with Tokujin Yoshioka, an artist for the fashion house’s furniture and travel-inspired accessories collection, to add the final flavors to food outlets. Yoshioka is known for his contemporary, nature-inspired pieces, tailor-made for the new restaurant and cafe’s decor. The interior, designed by Jun Aoki, is similar to a ship floating on water, faint reminding us of billowing sails.
