In the Wizard of Oz, it was Dorothy that said, “If we walk far enough, we shall sometime come to someplace.”
The whimsical spirit of these words written by L. Frank Baum and the colorful brilliance of Oz itself seem to be imbued in the very creation of Louis Vuitton‘s 15th Anniversary Edition City Guides.
What began in 1998 as a novel idea has evolved into an inspiring bank of knowledge for the worldwide traveler. French fashion house Louis Vuitton’s maven perspective for rich living and exceptional taste has served as the discerning eye for each city guide, thus resulting in new perspectives, new contributors, and an entirely new layout. The insatiable wanderer will want for nothing; instead, these guides will serve as doors for discovering the best that Cape Town, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Miami, Moscow, New York, Paris, Beijing, São Paulo, Seoul, Sydney, Tokyo, and Venice have to offer.
These prismatically coated guidebooks promise to unlock an array of secrets unbeknownst to the conventional fashion, design, art, food and beverage aficionados. And with only 3,000 copies packaged in a gorgeous, lacquered wooden box available for purchase starting in November, those secrets intend to remain hidden unless good fortune allows travelers to stumble upon them (or in Dorothy’s case, have a tornado drop your house on it).
