Dubai: Louis Vuitton, the world’s biggest luxury brand in terms of sales, plans to double the size of its existing Dubai Mall store, Roberto Eggs, the company’s president for Europe, the Middle East and Africa told Gulf News in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.

Work on expanding the store, which covers an area of 800 sq/m, is expected to begin in 2014, and is slated for completion in 2015.

“This is going to be the largest store in the Middle East — it will be our flagship store,” Eggs said. He added that there will be announcements of other projects soon.

The French maker of handbags, which is owned by LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton SA , officially opened its first standalone shoe store in the Middle East at Dubai Mall’s Level Shoe District this year. More info
