You can now buy a Louis Vuitton bag made in just one week

Louis Vuitton has announced the time and location of its sixteenth workshop opening, following the news that Virgil Abloh has been appointed head of menswear for the label on March 26. This summer, the French luxury house will open its fifteenth factory in La Merlatière, joining two other workshops in the Vendée region that have been producing leather goods for more than 20 years. The house will then set up shop in Beaulieu-sur-Layon, Maine-et-Loire, for its sixteenth workshop, set to open April 2019. Five hundred new jobs will become available across the two sites, aiming to improve efficiency and customer care by reducing production time from two weeks to one. A third workshop is also expected to open over the course of 2019, marking a clear expansion for the luxury house.
