Despite its increasing innovations in the online arena, Louis Vuitton hasn’t forgotten the art of letter writing, with reports that the French luxury house is planning to expand its stationery offerings with more “paper goods and related paraphernalia.”
Coinciding with the publication of the book titled Louis Vuitton: 100 Legendary Trunks, the brand has developed an iPad app of the same name.
The app has pretty much the same content as the book, including images of the most spectacular trunks and cases created on commission by Louis Vuitton, 1000 illustrations and even an ad catalogue from 1892.
Louis Vuitton has released a limited edition regatta watch for the 2012 America’s Cup. Often called the “oldest trophy in international sport”, this year marks the 34th America’s Cup.
The 34th America’s Cup consists of three main stages – the America’s Cup World Series; the Louis Vuitton Cup (the Americas’s Cup Challenger Selection Series) and the America’s Cup Finals.
