French luxury brand Louis Vuitton is to open ‘Cabinet d’Ecriture’ pop-up store in Paris this December with a focus on luxury writing instruments and paper products.
The new 750-square-foot (70 square meter) shop will be decorated with antique desks, and original Louis Vuitton book trunks.
Customers will be able to indulge in a range of writing instruments including luxury pencils and pens (ballpoint, pencil, fountain and roller), leather notebook holders, writing sets, and other paper products.
While Vuitton has created pens since the 1980s, the new expanded range is both wider in scope and more luxurious. A fountain pen, wrapped luxuriously in alligator skin and featuring a newly patented cartridge system which prevents the pen from leaking in airplanes, will set customers back €1,750, or $2,220.
At the lower end, customers can indulge in a pot of Louis Vuitton ink for €35 euros. Bespoke stationery and personalizable writing materials are also available to order.
At number 6, Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the store is located right by Café de Flore and Les Deux Magots, two centers of the left bank literary scenes.
