Just after Apple collaborated with Hermes on their smart watch, now Louis Vuitton came up with its own version of a luxury smart watch, the Tambour Horizon in partnership with Google and Qualcomm. This watch was designed to serve the world traveler—Vuitton’s core customer. The watch costs anywhere from $2,450 to $2,900.
With the Tambour Horizon you can select the digital face you want. It has 30 easily interchangeable straps for men and women, it notifies you of calls, texts, and emails; has an alarm, a step counter, indicates the weather, in addition to time.
The great news is for customers living in China, currently they have to buy 2 different watches when they travel, with the LV watch they will only have to buy one as it operates on both world and Chinese systems.
Louis Vuitton unveils a new collection of bags and accessories designed with the artist, Jeff Koons.
In recent years, Louis Vuitton has affirmed its engagement with the world of art through a series of high-profile collaborations with the most influential artists of our times.
In the French House’s latest collaboration, Louis Vuitton is working with the New York-based artist Jeff Koons to create a new range of bags and accessories to be launched on April 28th.
One of the most widely recognized figures in contemporary art, Koons has brought imagery from his long-standing ‘Gazing Ball’ paintings – a series of large-scale hand-painted reproductions of works by the Old Masters – to a range of Louis Vuitton products. His re-creations of masterpieces by da Vinci, Titian, Rubens, Fragonard and Van Gogh have been transposed on to such iconic Louis Vuitton bags as the Speedy, the Keepall and the Neverfull.
The most anticipated furniture fair all year is the Salone Del Mobile, this year it takes place between April 4-9, 2017. The fair is complemented with Euroluce among other interesting events.
The Objets Nomades Collection from fashion house Louis Vuitton, enriched with 10 new items, will be presented during Fuori Salone in Milan, from April 4th to 9th at Palazzo Bocconi.
Created in 2012, the Objets Nomades collection keeps alive Louis Vuitton’s long tradition of beautifully crafted travel objects. Some of the world’s most renowned designers have since imagined stunning travel-inspired Objets, which have then been made by Louis Vuitton.
The limited editions and experimental prototypes that make up the Objets Nomades collection all pay homage to the House’s special orders of the past and add the defiantly contemporary visions of creative designers from around the world: Atelier Oï, Maarten Baas, Barber and Osgerby, the Campana Brothers, Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Nendo, Gwenaël Nicolas, Raw Edges, Patricia Urquiola, Marcel Wanders, and, most recently, India Mahdavi and Tokujin Yoshioka.
Today, there are 25 Objets Nomades and 10 among them will be presented for the first time during Fuori Salone in Milano. From a hammock to a deckchair, from a swing chair to a foldable stool. Each Objet embodies the same ideals: a love of the beauty of fine materials, the possibility of forms and carefully balanced proportions, complex and meticulous craftsmanship, and close attention to detail.

In 1854, Louis Vuitton founded his House. In 1896 his son, Georges Vuitton, created The Monogram in honor of his late father. An icon was born.
The Monogram was revolutionary when it appeared. This most particular and personal of signatures was instantly transformed into a universal symbol of modernity in the hands of Georges Vuitton: it is one of the first exercises in elevated branding and a defining sign of a global culture to come.
In 1965 Gaston-Louis Vuitton, recounted how his father, Georges, had created the motifs on The Monogram canvas: ‘First of all, the initials of the company – LV – are interlaced in such a way as to remain perfectly legible. Then a diamond. To give a specific character to the shape, he made the sides concave with a four-petal flower in the center. Then the extension of this flower in a positive image. Finally, a circle containing a flower with four rounded petals.’
Cassina, the Italian luxury furniture brand, has collaborated with Louis Vuitton to create a tribute limited edition LC4 Chaise Lounge. The collaboration was unveiled during Art Basel Miami at the Cassina Showroom in honor French designer Charlotte Perriand.
The LC4 chaise was originally designed by Perriand herself along with Le Corbusier, and Pierre Jeanneret in 1929. The re-issue comes covered in the buttery cowhide of Vuitton’s leather. The chair is upholstered in pale rose-colored leather, with contrasting dark brown hide on the foot and headrest.
Defined as the ‘ultimate relaxing machine,’ only 1000 of the Cassina & Louis Vuitton Limited Edition LC4 Chaise Lounge will be made. The LV logo is no where to be found, it will be priced at $8000.
Luxury brand Louis Vuitton has opened a “winter resort” store in Switzerland winter-sports resort, Gstaad which was originally built in 1913 and located on the renowned Promenade.
The Maison showcases its stylish and elegant collections in the warm ambience of a winter ski chalet, a setting surrounded by authenticity and tradition, filled with new emotions and experiences.
The opening is a tribute to one of Europe’s best-known winter (and summer) destinations, which is celebrating its 700th anniversary in 2012. Following this new architectural concept, the store features a sophisticated salon to invite clients to relax next to an open fire and a Christmas Trunk composition celebrating the know-how and magic of Louis Vuitton’s special orders.
