Louis Vuitton releases updated city guides
This November, the French luxury brand will launch the 15th edition of its city guides, each of which invites readers to explore one of the world's top destinations through insider tips and recommendations.
The Louis Vuitton city guides have all of the world's continents covered in this latest edition. The guidebooks are available for a total of 15 cities, including Paris, Tokyo, Sydney, Cape Town, New York, Sao Paulo and Moscow.
Journalists and authors reveal their favorite hotels, restaurants, boutiques and cultural attractions in each city, presenting more famous landmarks alongside some of each city's best kept secrets. In keeping with the reputation of the Louis Vuitton brand, the listings in each guide are chosen by travelers with high standards and a taste for luxury.The city guides are written in an open and subjective tone meant to immerse readers in the city's history and atmosphere, and to urge both first-time visitors and inhabitants of the city to explore a new side of their home town. Each city guide also features tips from a local celebrity, such as South Korean actor Lee Byung-Hun for Seoul or Lourdes Lopez, director of the Miami City Ballet.
Louis Vuitton invited the French photographer's collective Tendance Floue to illustrate the guides with photos that convey the mood and soul of each destination. Each guide is available individually at €30 (around $40). For the avid world traveler, the brand also offers a limited edition lacquered wooden box containing all 15 city guides at the price of €450 (around $600).
