Louis Vuitton is well known for their beautifully crafted trunks and luggage collections. There’s no doubt that this fashion power house has a soft spot for travel. In fact, since 1998 LV has been publishing their very own sets of city guides. Of course it goes without saying that the guides will point you in the direction of luxury!
The LV City Guides are loaded with the addresses to the best hotels, restaurants, local markets, boutiques, hot new designers, galleries, little-known monuments and all the tucked away hot spots in some of the world’s top destinations. Cities include Tokyo, Paris, London, Los Angeles, Miami, as well as less touristy spots like Basel, Deauville, Knokke-le-Zoute, Mykonos, Malaga and Tel-Aviv among the 40 destinations currently offered.
Design and packaging of these chic guides was inspired by the Louis Vuitton vintage luggage label found on their holiday trunks. The guides are dark brown to reflect LV’s signature style with pops of bright colours like Pistachio Green, Rosewood and Magenta. Inside you’ll not only find the best address book for your selected city, but also easy to read maps and helpful illustrations. Best of all the guides are the perfect size to be thrown into your bag or your back pocket making them easy to tote around town.
The 2011 European Edition Box Set will be released on October 15th and will feature seven new cities including Oxford and Porto Cervo. You can get your hands on past editions individual cities (like my home-town Miami) for approximately $35USD or the 2010 European Cities Box Set for $130USD online or in select stores.
