Just like as we hoped, Louis Vuitton is stretching out the use of their brilliant conveyor belt window displays by switching up what exactly they display.
Two weeks ago, when the windows were first installed, the shoppers of Fifth Avenue openly drooled at the sight of variations of the Speedy bag parading through the beaded curtains. This weekend however, the Speedy was sacrificed for shoes, and now various patent leather pumps, boots and sneakers take center stage. Or should we say corner stage, since the display winds around the corner of the flagship at 5th Ave and 57th Street.
