Louis Vuitton Faces Sanctions for Placing Giant Trunk on Red Square

A legendary Louis Vuitton fashion company may face an administrative case for installing a giant Louis Vuitton suitcase shaped pavilion in the middle of Moscow’s Red Square, Russian officials said on Friday.

      A representative from the Moscow government’s overseeing the use of state-owned non-residential real estate said the French fashion house faces “penal sanctions” for illegal use of land.

      Measuring 30 meters (100 feet) long and nine meters (30 feet) high and adorned with the Louis Vuitton logo and a famous pattern, the enormous trunk was due to house a "Soul of Travel" beneficent exhibition organized by the designer goods company from December 2 to January 19.

      It was not immediately clear which department of the city government had given the company permission to erect the pavilion. Earlier, a Kremlin source told journalists that the presidential administration had not agreed to its construction.

      The giant suitcase’s installation on Red Square, an iconic Moscow tourist attraction and a UNESCO World Heritage site, sparked a wave of public outrage and numerous demands for its removal.

      The pavilion is now under the process of dismantling, which is expected to take about a week.
