Le Louvre

2 Daly Street, South Yarra

Open

Mon - Sat 10am - 6pm

When Le Louvre fashion boutique closed its doors in Collins Street, Melbourne, many lamented, particularly the well-heeled fashionistas who appreciated not only the exquisite clothing but also the impeccable service. Fortunately this Melbourne establishment resurfaced at 2 Daly Street, South Yarra (immediately behind the Olsen on Chapel Street).

Established by Lillian Wightman in the 1920s, Georgina Weir, Lillian’s daughter, swapped the heritage-listed Collins Street address for a disused sub-station; rebuilt into a three-level boutique. And while the Collins Street boutique offered a genteel environment with ocelot-covered gilt lounges, the South Yarra boutique is edgy. Mirrored walls include the fluorescent silhouettes of designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen and Stephen Jones. Rick Owen is also present in this mirrored collage.

Objects and artifacts from the 1940s through to the 1960s are thoughtfully arranged on each level, with ocelot-covered screens and shopping bags (a signature of the store) in client’s hands as they leave the store. There’s also an unusual mix of items including Aboriginal art and Italian glass.

While the ground floor of Le Louvre showcases the designs from Lanvin, Balmain, Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent Paris, Chloe, Roland Mouret and Valentino and, the first floor is given over to Le Salon. The designers whose creations are stocked here tend to be those with a clear signature and a distinctive voice that reverberate on the world’s fashion stage. The first floor salaon – as well as for private appointments - is a destination for stylish, sophisticated brides with our bridal selection including Jenny Packham, Marchesa, Roland Mouret, Valentino, Chloe to name a few.
