Welcome to Tel Aviv, Louis Vuitton. The luxury leather goods purveyor opened its first store in Israel, located in the Ramat Aviv mall [1] in Tel Aviv. The Jerusalem Post has an in-depth look [2] at the pricey products available (the brand’s signature handbags [3] run in the two- and three- thousands and a wallet could set you back as much as $1,330 [4]), but the flagship store should be right at home at 40 Einstein St. With its sky-high rent prices (a reported [5] $1,804 per square meter in 2010), Ramat Aviv mall is the most expensive mall in Israel and the 35th most-expensive shopping destination in the world.

And there’s even more good news for LV lovers in the Holy Land: the store will be open [6] on Saturdays, “from Shabbat’s end to 23:00.”
