Yes, technology has taken a front seat and is driving out all our tangible pleasures to mere virtual bliss. Aside from communication, almost everything revolving around our daily routine is now online, and that also includes saving a trip to our favorite store to grab a bargain. Everyone is feeling the heat of this void, and most so retail giants as fashion gurus Louis Vuitton points out. The company and its parent LVMH decided to make an effort and show people the real essence of the in-store experience and launch a 304-page tome this fall. The book is hardbound and will be named Louis Vuitton – Architecture and Interiors, featuring most of the brand’s iconic and memorable retail spaces, boasting designs by renowned architects and designers including Peter Marino, Christian de Portzamparc, and Jun Aoki.
Each book will be quoted at $85. A more exclusive limited edition will also be available for $130, with 3 separate photographs on the cover coming with one of 3 monogrammed fabric slipcases – gold, silver, and copper. From October 1, you could grab a copy at any of its retail locations and specialty book stores.
