Outside of its luxury ready-to-wear collections, Louis Vuitton seeks to bring its customers elevated experiences through other lifestyle offerings, whether it’s a charitable candle or its expansive selection of travel literature. For the latter, the French house has unveiled its latest round of releases under its City Guides and Fashion Eye ranges, respectively introducing updates to metropolises around the globe and two new photography books.
Individuals that are native to each area helped refresh the City Guides for 10 different cities: Paris, Beijing, Lisbon, London, Moscow, New York, Paris, San Francisco, Seoul, Singapore and Tokyo. Louis Vuitton recruited various “journalists and guests” to share input on must-see places, including boutique hotels, gourmet restaurants, museums, shops and more. In Paris, for example, the label tapped architect and interior decorator François-Joseph Graf for his take on the town, while actress and singer Sophie Auster shared hers for New York.
In addition to the new volumes of the City Guides, Louis Vuitton has added more Fashion Eye books that focus on specific destinations through a photographer’s eye. Japan by Adolphe de Meyer features images taken by the French and German photographer in the early 1900s. Meanwhile, Sarah Moon’s Orient Express references the famous train.
Louis Vuitton’s City Guides are available now in-store and at Louisvuitton.com, priced at $37 USD per edition for paper copies and $10 USD for digital. Japan and Orient Express are slated to release on November 1 for approximately $50 USD.
Elsewhere, it was recently announced that the brand will soon open a leather workshop in Texas.
