Got your tax refund yet? Good. Because a Louis Vuitton boutique will open Friday (May 20) inside the downtown Seattle Nordstrom, and it’s filled with exotic bags, leather goods and the company’s gorgeous new summer line (pictured).

Invest in a City Steamer, a prim and timeless structured bag, or go for pop with an Epi Chain bag in trendy colors and finishes. Men’s items include briefcases and backpacks.

Started as a travel-goods company in 1854, the line’s summer collection includes bright tropical prints on suitcases, carry-ons and totes, any of which would certainly make schlepping through the airport much more glamorous.

The boutique is located on the first floor of the remodeled Nordstrom store. Customized monogramming is available, either with hand-painted initials or hot stamping into leather.
