The well-heeled set were out in full force last night, preparing and partying for the arrival of Louis Vuitton on the Lower East Side. In Hell Square, no less.

The entire northeast corner of Ludlow and Rivington Streets is daubed in neon green paint. From the facade to the garbage bags out front. Inside, the floor was buzzing – photographers, tastemakers, industry folk, the works.

As previously reported, Louis Vuitton chose the 6,000 square-foot store at 132 Ludlow for its pre-Fashion Week pop-up, featuring next fall’s styles. Goods designed by Virgil Abloh ranging from monogrammed accessories and leather items to brand new LV “Skate” sneakers.

How many more nails are left for this coffin?
