Louis Vuitton garden

If you go down to the Westfield Village today you're sure of a big surprise. Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller has been up all night – buckets of coffee by his side – creating this modern, urban garden that spills out of the new Louis Vuitton store in the shopping centre! ‘For our store opening at Westfield London we wanted to create a special exhibit dedicated to the public, something that paid tribute to springtime and the British love for the art of gardening,' explains Sue Whiteley, Managing Director of Louis Vuitton in the UK and Scandinavia, of the luxury fashion house's latest project. It has seen tonnes of earth being brought in overnight to allow fruit bushes, flowering plants and a vegetable garden to be planted in the central atrium. And there are flower installations created in conjunction with the Cambridge WI in the store alongside Stephen Sprouse for Louis Vuitton Speedy bags, too! Check back tomorrow for a video of the installation coming together or head down to The Village in London's Westfield to see it for yourself – and maybe have a sneaky shop as well!
