Louis Vuitton Launches Luxury Smartwatch

Fashion Trends

The French fashion house Louis Vuitton is the latest brand that decided to hop on the wearable tech bandwagon. Louis Vuitton’s first smartwatch carries the name Tambour Horizon. The fashion house certainly loves to challenge themselves with innovative products. Recently they collaborated with the exclusive sportswear brand Supreme. Additionally, the brand’s mini trunk bag designed by the creative director Nicolas Ghesquière as well as the cashmere blankets were a major success as well.

The latest product in the series of innovative launches is their first piece of wearable tech. The Tambour Horizon watch is a modern upgrade of the original Tambour watch with Google’s Android Wear 2.0 operating system.The technology is packed in a 42mm case and works with both Android phones and iPhones. The watch is available in 3 different styles and finishes: polished, satin finish and all black. All the styles are unisex, wearable and designed to blend with any outfit. On top of that, there is a variety of downloadable digital watch faces and 60 different interchangeable strap options.

The smartwatch is designed to work internationally and it’s perfect for the trendsetters who are constantly on the go. For travelers, the brand installed two exclusive travel-centric apps on the smartwatch. The first app is called “The Flight” and is designed to gather the traveler’s air travel info on one place. The other app is called “City Guide” and includes recommendations and tips for exploring the place once you land. The battery life of the smartwatch is similar to those of other smartphones and lasts about a day.“It’s something that is pretty new on the market and at the same time very interesting,” said the vice-president of watches and jewelry at LV Hamidi Chatti. Considering the fact that smartwatches have been on the market for a while this is definitely not a new product.Louis Vuitton’s smartwatch will do everything that a regular smartwatch will do. You could receive text messages, set an alarm, explore the internet, etc. There are also a couple of features that separate the Tambour Horizon watch from the other smartwatches on the market. First, the 42mm dial is the smallest among the luxury smartwatches. Also, Tambour Horizon is the first Android smartwatch that is designed to function in China. This is extremely important for the brand because China is one of Louis Vuitton’s largest markets when it comes to jewelry and watches.

Louis Vuitton’s vice president Chatti revealed that the making of the watch took 2 years. The brand wanted to make sure that they had the perfect product. Their main goal was to create a blend of luxury and beauty in a tech version.

As for the technology part of the design, Louis Vuitton teamed up with Google and Qualcomm. The brand had strict requirements about the design. They didn’t want to compromise on the beauty of the watch and asked Google and Qualcomm to come up with a system that will fit in the style that they designed.

If you want to get your hands on the luxury Tambour Horizon smartwatch, expect to spare at least $2,450. Since we are talking about a smartwatch made by one of the most prestigious luxury fashion houses the price shouldn’t surprise us at all.

However, the smartwatches aren’t a novelty in the Louis Vuitton’s family. The brand’s sister company, Tag Heuer, also dropped its first smartwatch back in 2015. Their main concern was the strong competition from the tech giants Apple and Samsung. Surprisingly, the watches outdid everyone’s expectation in sales. They sold 56,000 units, which was three times more than what they expected. The brand expects to sell over 150,000 units this year.

It’s safe to say that lately, the customers are more interested in wearable technology driven accessories. Louis Vuitton revealed that they are working on other technology driven pieces that can be controlled from the smartwatch. Chatti adds that the future plans will release when the technology is ready and it makes sense for their clients.

Fashion Trends

With mere days to go before Louis Vuitton opens the doors to their #LVFragment pop-up at Surrender Orchard Road, here are a couple of things you need to be updated on. For starters, streetwear legend and founder of Fragment Design, Hiroshi Fujiwara, will be in Singapore for the exclusive by-invite only launch party on 21 April 2017. Next, the Singapore pop-up (which will be the second city in the world after Tokyo to launch this special collaboration collection) will also be featuring some exclusive pieces that you won’t get anywhere else. Yes, guys, these exclusives are strictly limited edition and once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Priced from SGD440 to SGD2860, there are 8 pieces in all that will only be available in limited quantities. For starters, there’s the Doudou Louis Bear everybody wants, along with the small Monogram Eclipse Nano Bag (click here to see it in its full glory) that is another must-buy. The other bag, the larger Cabas in black fabric, is limited to just 10 pieces, which also means it will be gone in a blink of an eye. Rounding up the exclusives, there’s the brooch set and carabiner key holder, as well as all the rainbow pieces which include the Hawaiian shirt, tee, bandana set and the bandana stole.

The pop-up opens to the public on 22 April and will run all the way to 7 May 2017, with exclusives and the general collection made available for sale. The only difference? Once the exclusives sell out, they will not be replenished. In other words, it’s time to start getting in line because once they’re gone, they’re truly gone.

Nicolas Ghesquière unveiled his vision for Louis Vuitton’s fall-winter 2017 collection at the Louvre’s Cour Marly sculptural garden setting. The French designer focused on an eclectic range of styles for the new season–all with an effortless cool attitude. Spotlighting outerwear pieces ranging from furs to leather and tweed–the Louis Vuitton woman can choose from boxy cuts to volume-filled shapes. Trousers come in wool that almost mimics a denim material with piping and bold colors. As for skirts, above-the-knee styles get paired with chunky sweaters. Closing out the presentation, Ghesquière designed mix-media dresses with lace and floral brocades.

LOUIS VUITTON MERGES EXPERT CRAFTSMANSHIP WITH STREET CRED FOR SPRING

Fashion Trends

Merging traditional craftsmanship with innovative design is a true feat in fashion — as well as a central tenet of Nicolas Ghesquière's stint at Louis Vuitton thus far. For spring 2017, the designer continued (and perfected) the experimental cuts and high-tech fabrics that he introduced for resort, which was shown in Rio and will be coming to stores next month.

Wednesday's show took place at the still under-construction Louis Vuitton store at the entrance to the Place Vendôme, which is slated for a spring opening. The space's cement floors, walls and black steel central staircase provided the perfect milieu for a stellar outing of ready-to-wear and accessories as models walked along the set that resembled more of a traditional salon-style presentation.

The collection was a seamless blend of experimental cuts coupled with flawless craftsmanship — like a sliced Prince de Galles double-breasted bolero jacket with high shoulders paired with a front-wrap leather skirt; a series of blue, grey and brown bias cut dresses belted at the waist with cutouts and brass embroideries on the sides; and tulle beaded evening dresses with patches both covering and exposing the body. One of the black dresses has a combination of three types of fabrics: leather, satin crepe and light wool. The perfect tailoring of broad-shouldered, tropical wool jackets and wrap skirts demonstrated the house's command of artisanal expertise for the clothes, as well as the new bags and Petite Malle trunk-style phone cases — already a hit on social media.

Yet there is a casualness to the late '80s vibes of the collection (the gold pointed-toe boots and broad shouldered silhouettes, for example) without being obviously sporty — see the blue leather bomber or the printed tank made from sweatshirt material paired with a leather skirt. Even the evening dresses were kept to a bare minimum of light tulle with small patterned beadings and cut fabrics draped on the inside. These less precious (yet still luxurious) looks will likely woo millennial customers.

Not very often is an apparel collection from one of the world's largest luxury brands viewed as having street cred, but this spring, Louis Vuitton upped the ante and provided the requisite dose of avant-garde sensibility that's often lacking from traditional houses.

Louis Vuitton’s cruise 2017 show

Fashion Trends

Nicolas Ghesquière set the stage for the Resort season in Rio de Janeiro this afternoon. Celebrities and fashion insiders—including Alicia Vikander, Alessandra Ambrosio, Zendaya and Jaden Smith—flocked to Brazil for the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 show at the Oscar Niemeyer-designed Niterói Contemporary Art Museum. The collection drew inspiration from the city's vibrant art and culture, featuring pieces in splashycolors and prints, and futuristic silhouettes with sporty details. Accessories were equally cool—with such standouts as the label's signature trunk made over to look like a boombox and gladiator sandals with an athletic update.


Rio de Janeiro is in the eye of a storm, beset by a collapsing government, economic turmoil and the zika-virus-carrying A. Aegypti mosquito. On top of that, it has an Olympic Games to deliver in 68 days. The metro system isn't finished, let alone the beach volleyball stadium which will be the pride of Copacabana Beach but is currently nothing more than a mass of scaffolding in the sand.

Into this maelstrom last night came Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of womenswear at Louis Vuitton, to showcase his latest cruise collection for the French luxury behemoth. At first glance, his choice of the Brazilian port city seems almost as quixotic as Karl Lagerfeld’s decision to stage a Chanel cruise show in Cuba three weeks ago. It's certainly as much of a fashion ‘first’ as the Havana spectacular since there's never before been a major international catwalk show in Rio. But while the Cubans have been cut off from the wider world in fashion terms for about 60 years, Brazilians have very much kept up with the rest of us. Not only do they have genuine card-carrying supermodels - Gisele Bundchen, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima to name merely three - they are also avid consumers of Vuitton’s handbags, luggage and accessories. And now, surely, of its fashion too.

Ghesquière is a lover of architecture, so the choice of venue was almost as important for him as the clothes he paraded there. And his building of choice was certainly spectacular. The Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói, designed by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and built in the 1990s, looks like a white flying saucer that has touched down on the tip of a rocky outcrop overlooking the sea about an hour’s drive from the centre of Rio. The only way out of the building is down a curving spool of crimson concrete that spirals down to the ground, creating the most dramatic runway any of the 47 seasoned models there can ever have walked.   Louis Vuitton was founded in 1854 in order to help the wealthy travel in comfort and style, and Ghesquière has been true to the brief.

There was a sport and an athleticism to the clothes, whether white-stretch, multi-pocketed trousers, or performance-fabric, zip-fastened mini-dresses, that indicated that, whoever the Vuitton woman is, she’ll be going places this autumn. She’ll also be striding out in comfort since the shoes and boots shown on the catwalk were resolutely forgiving neoprene - and were the thong-toed lace-up boots inspired by flipflops? There were more nods to Brazil in the footballer print inspired by the local artist Aldemir Martins’ paintings of Pelè that adorned some tank tops. Meanwhile the ruffles, hot blues and reds, and cutaway sections on many of the mini-dresses evoked a spirit of carnival.

As did the bags - some of which were styled to look exactly like a 1980s boom box, while others delighted with their fringing, graffiti decoration and vibrant pinks, yellows and scarlets. ‘I’m a Frenchman who’s come to present a French luxury collection but it’s also tropical and exotic,’ explained Ghesquière. ‘Nature is explosive here, and at the same time you have these wonderful buildings. It’s a beautiful chaos.’

Watching this joyous marriage of Vuitton and Rio was a hand-picked group of celebrities including the French icon Catherine Deneuve, the Swedish Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, Jaden (son of Will) Smith, and Adriana Lima. Beautiful chaos indeed.

Louis Vuitton Cruise 2017 Fashion Show took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at the beautiful Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum, which set against the Atlantic Ocean and designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer.

“I so admire the power of Oscar Niemeyer’s conviction. His vision, his radicality, his utopia even. Being able to show a fashion collection in such an architecturally powerful space is a sensorial experience. In Rio de Janeiro, what I saw most of all was movement and an explosive energy that lives somewhere between modernism and tropicality. I was fascinated by the constant duality between nature and urbanism and the pictorial explosion it creates. For me, the main question was how to incorporate into my collection all these elements that are part of Brazilian culture, without forgetting that I am just a visitor who brings his own Parisian and French cultural references to the moment.” said the creative director of the house of Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière.

The collection is sporty and artful with asymmetrical hems, peek-a-boo cutouts and lightweight layers. The accessories are futuristic. The gladiator-style sporty flat thong sandals and sneaker ankle boots are functional and practical, featuring molded comfortable sneaker sole with strap up or lace up around the ankle. The pointed toe booties are designed with T-bar front and finished in contrasted colors. Leather oxfords with large ankle cuff completed the silhouette with an edgy, confident and relaxed attitude.

Louis Vuitton continues to outdo itself with must see shows in exotic locales. Rio de Janeiro was the backdrop for their recent Cruise 2017 show, and the brand added ample sparkle by inviting well heeled celebrity guest and style stars.
