Louis Vuitton is always bringing new innovative ideas to the luxury goods market : starting on June 16th for $17 you can experience “it’s most affordable travel-themed product yet”.
The French luxury giant has created MP3 audio guides for three Chinese cities, with one-hour walking tours narrated by famous actresses: Gong Li for Beijing, Joan Chen for Shanghai and Shu Qi for Hong Kong.
The audio guides were produced in collaboration with Soundwalk and will be launched in tandem with the Olympic Games in Beijing this summer.
You will be able to download the audio guides at louisvuitton.com and louisvuittonsoundwalk.com.

Richard Prince collaborated with Marc Jacobs to design artistic bags for the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008 line.
The hottest item right now is the Louis Vuitton Watercolor Speedy which is said to be released in the US in May.
The monogram pattern is designed in a manner that has the orange, red, and yellow paints looking like they were painted on with watercolor paint.
In early 2007, Louis Vuitton released their most expensive handbag, the Louis Vuitton Tribute Patchwork Bag. The bags, as the title suggests, were made of samples of different Louis Vuitton bags. The fifteen bags used come from the LV spring/summer and cruise lines.
The gold chain shoulder strap makes this the perfect handbag for the discerning 90s rapper while the patchwork nature of the purse itself suggests that the person owning it may have a rusted truck propped up on cinder blocks in their front yard. Louis Vuitton made twenty-four numbered copies of their most expensive handbags, priced at $45,000 and thhis limited edition purse sold out almost immediately.

The Louis Vuitton Monogram Multicolore Zippy Coin Purse, which comes in Black or White; were finally released in Singapore in April 2008 after a long anticipated wait.
First came the one in Monogram Canvas, followed by versions in Epi, Damier Ebene and Damier Azur and finally the Monogram Multicolore ones.
There was even a special limited edition one that was launched to mark the opening of Hong Kong’s Louis Vuitton boutique at 5 Canton Road (all the guests received one for free!).
Hotels are slowly moving beyond the bar, nightclub and restaurant trend to add some hip retail spaces in their properties.
Of course, this is nothing new as some hotels have been doing this already for a long time. But what is news is the report of a Louis Vuitton store opening inside the JW Marriott Bucharest Hotel.
The store will open in June and offer customers the standard LV leather goods as well as the opportunity to design their own travel trunk based on their “requirements and taste.”
